5 Star Review – Mini Farming: A Beginners Guide to Homesteading & Being Self Sufficient With Organic Gardening.

As a youth, I worked for a man named Ernie Vemon. He owned a large field of several acres complete with a spring-filled quarry owned by the Southern Pacific Railroad. In these fields, he grew everything from green onions to pumpkins. He took advantage of the many kids in the area by paying us $2.50 after school, and a whole $5.00 to work his fields on Saturday. We planted, hoed, picked, and admired his teenage daughters lack of modesty as she bent over and showed us her…anyway, we worked hard. At home, my mother had her garden and I worked it to produced delicious tomatoes, strawberries, and rhubarb. Since then adult responsibility left me with little time to get my fingers dirty.  

When I saw this book, I had to look inside and see what it is all about. Andrew Owens details in easy to follow steps all you need to know about Organic Gardening. He will show you step by step how to choose the right piece of ground, till the soil, and prepare it, how to make rows, and what to plant and when. He will even take you through Livestock Raising if you have the room. As I read this, I was reminded of the days of my youth and I got that old urge to feel the soil in my hands and grow my own food, chemical free.
