Homesteading Handbook Guide On Self Sufficiency Everything You Need To Know Growing Your Own Food In Your Back Yard Homesteading 101 [Kindle Edition]
Dalbert Burton (Author)


http://www.amazon.com/Homesteading-H...154606011_f_71

Quote:
Having a useful homesteading garden is considered a brilliant concept as it would be of great significance in the case of the Millennium Bug hitting hard. When you plan to construct gardens of this scale, it requires that extensive consideration be afforded to the types of produce and also that these types have the ability of being reaped and also carefully placed in a root cellar or a dark closet and require no processing and also remain in that place until they are needed at a later date, maybe in a year.

Whether you will be doing your homesteading in a country or town zone, there are certain things that are required when plans are being made to start a home garden. This book will tell you what the requirements are, as well as what you should not do in regards to obtaining permission to do homesteading. The book outlines the crops that are ideal for this type of gardening.

In addition to the various and detailed homesteading rules and regulations that you will learn about in this book, it is necessary to get consent in writing from your neighbours long before you make alterations to any boundary wall that you share with them.

About the Author: There are several successful projects that the author, Dalbert Burton, has undertaken and homesteading is certainly one of them. In fact, he believes that this has by far been one of the most rewarding things he has ever done in his lifetime. His wish is that his readers who have been considering this for a while and those who have just started out will receive the same if not better rewards as well as a sense of accomplishment from successfully growing their own food. As such, Dalbert has provided extensive details on how, when and why you should consider doing your own homesteading project.

He is sharing what he has learnt, after much trial and error, about useful soil and how to improve them to make them perform to their optimum level. Not ignoring the fact that there are concerns regarding the conservation of water, Dalbert Burton gives his readers advice on how to go about doing this. One method involves grouping certain plants together that have water requirements that are the same. The advantages as well as the simplicity of mulching are offered in his book where readers will realize how accessible materials are that can be used for this purpose.

This month's edition of Weekend Homesteader focuses on what August is best known for --- the sun. You'll take advantage of solar energy directly by drying tomatoes or peaches in your car and clothes on the line, then will collect the sun's energy indirectly when you start a fall garden and find local produce in abundance.

For those of you who are new to the Weekend Homesteader, this monthly ebook series walks you through fun and easy projects that introduce growing your own food, cooking the bounty, preparing for emergency power outages, and achieving financial independence.

Practical Household Uses of Honey [Kindle Edition]
Margaret Briggs (Author)


http://www.amazon.com/Practical-Hous..._292975011_f_5

Quote:
From earliest times, people have used honey to nourish, heal, purify and protect. The ancient Babylonians and Assyrians poured honey on the foundations of their temples, and the Greeks, Hindus and Persians used it in their religious services. Honey is as popular today as it was in ancient times, and is still held in great respect due to its proven antibacterial properties, as well as its delicious and unique taste. This accessible handbook offers an introduction to all aspects of honey, its history and many applications. The book opens with a guide to the honey bee, as well as an overview of how to keep hives and bees as a productive hobby. There follows a glossary of the different types of honey and their properties, distinct tastes, and suggested uses. Next, there are practical recipes for health and beauty, with all kinds of honey scrubs, masks, toners, cleansers and nourishers for skin and hair. Last but not least, the unique taste and benefits of honey can be enjoyed in the kitchen, and there are recipes here for a wealth of exciting dishes and drinks.

HOMESTEADING: A 21st Century Beginning of Self Reliance [Kindle Edition]

HOMESTEADIN: A 21st Century Beginning of Self Reliance is my first book. I hope that this will help you and give you some things to think about if you want to live a more self reliant and self sufficient life. I didn't fill the book with pictures and illustrations since I try to live by the KISS principle (Keep It Simple, Stupid). The information is designed to get you started and allow you to make your place, truly your place. There is no right way or wrong way to do this. You make the choices and then work within those choices. Starting our homestead 30 years later than what we ever envisioned was not our intention years ago. But, life is never easy and if anyone told you it would be then they lied. You will get out of life what you put into it. The chasing of the American dream of the perfect house, job and other things is not what it used to be. The recession that began in 2008 has left many people with broken lives and broken dreams. Some lost jobs, others lost homes and others lost their retirement money. This brings us to why you may have chosen to pursue a simpler way of life and not depend on others but instead to rely on yourself.

You can make this homestead into whatever you want and whether it is a rural, suburban or even an urban location it is yours. You (or you and your family) make the choices and decisions and live with the outcome of those decisions. You are choosing to simplify life as you know it and remove any preconceived notions about what it will be. Along the way you will remove the unimportant things from your lives and spend more time doing the things that will bring enjoyment and fulfillment. Growing your own foods and then enjoying the fruits of your labor will help to make you healthier and provide hours outdoor with fresh air. If you have children then encourage them to enjoy the outdoors and be involved in the activities and chores that go with your homestead.
