A Little Light Reading...
One of the things that I enjoy very much is reading. Whether it is a great historical novel, such as the Jack Aubrey series, or a 18th century journal I love to read it. Usually you will find a few different books or magazines in my night stand, but lately there has been a subject matter other than the normal history or Christian books ... Farming books, magazines, and articles have made their way into my reading library. With Christmas coming just around the corner I put together a list of a few of the books that I would like to tackle next. Most of them come from Joel Salatin because he has written very candidly and to the point on the subect of small scale farming, but there are a few others that look to be interesting also. So, here is my list of light reading...
Salad Bar Beef by Joel Salatin Amazon
You Can Farm by Joel Salatin Amazon
Pastured Poultry Profits by Joel Salatin Amazon
Making Your Small Farm Profitable by Ron Macher Amazon
All Flesh is Grass by Gene Logsdon Amazon
And then for a practical approach from the past...
Five Acres and Independence by Maurice Kains Amazon
Those are some of the one's that I have picked out from the research I have done. I hope to be able report back with some more information soon!
IN OTHER NEWS ::: I finally received my new boots. I had ordered a pair of Georgia Boots, but a seam on the tongue hit my ankle at the wrong angle so I had to fork out a little more cash and buy the Wolverines. All in all I am pleased with them so far and hope they will last.
