Description

Ever have the urge to raise your own chickens, grind your own flour, or start your own compost pile? If any of these ideas are appealing, this is the book for you. The success of PBS's Frontier House television series suggests that more and more people are intrigued by the "homesteader" experience and the idea of doing things themselves, even if they live on a small plot of land in a suburban neighborhood. OLD-TIME COUNTRY CRAFTS AND SKILLS presents the practical information necessary to become more self-reliant at home, start a new hobby, or even learn a skill that may provide a secondary income. The Burches' crafts and skills include: · Beekeeping · Raising sheep and goats · Starting seeds · Composting · Felling trees · Building split-rail fences · Making soap and candles · Drying foods · Laying stone · Making butter and cottage cheese · Reading the weather · And much more From raising livestock to woodcrafting, from the garden to the kitchen, the Burches' fresh and easy-to-follow approach to country wisdom is sure to win over even the most die-hard city dweller.show more
