Enjoyed the wide range of knowledge on many different homestead topics! I’d check this out again as a great reference.

Very well rounded material - covers a ton in one book! Lots of diagrams of fruit types, animals, etc that you usually don't see all in one book. Sad to return this one - will probably take out again one day!
