THE NEW AMERICAN HOMESTEAD & ROOM OF THE DAY!

The New American Homestead,
Sustainable, Self-Sufficiend Living
 in the Country or in the City
By John H. Tullock
John Wiley & Sons, Inc., $19.99
Reviewed by Teresa Hatfield


When I received this book I was expecting a book full of beautiful pictures, and what I got was a book filled with an enormous amount of valuable information on how to run your own sustainable homestead.  It is a valuable resource on how to grow herbs, vegetables, fruit, raise animals and poultry, and how to prepare them when mature.

What a gorgeous room. I love the contrast of that dark sofa. Sustainable homestead sounds interesting....and like a lot of work maybe???

That book sounds really interesting since I live in the country and probably easier to have a sustainable lifestyle with the animals. I hope you're enjoying your weekend!
