Reading List

The other night I stayed up oh so late adding a new resource page, my reading list. I’ve been meaning to do this since starting this blog in early January (along with bringing much of my early resources and discoveries from the old free blog, over to this one.)

Around 2 a.m. I finished my list of titles along with brilliant and witty critiques of each one (in my weary mind it was brilliant) and just as I hit send we lost internet connection.

I was a little heartbroken but I’ve started re-writing that page in the stolen moments I’ve managed to find this week.

If you are looking for books to teach you how to preserve, to garden, to raise chickens, or to prepare food from scratch that will be a good list for you. Come spring I hope to expand it with meat chickens or rabbits and honey bees. In the meantime I’ll keep plugging through my most (or least) cherished titles so that I can point you in the right direction or spare you.

  1. Wonderful list. I have many of these titles and many more that are dog eared from constant use.

    If you have not read “This Organic Life – Confessions of a Suburban Homesteader” by Joan Dye Gussow – you should track it down at the library because I know you would really enjoy it.

  2. Yes, I second This Organic Life. Also, Bean Blossom Dreams by Sallyann Murphy is a fun read with some good recipes.

    Random question:
    I was wondering if you’d found a local source for potatoes. It seems like a good time to stock up on some boxes that I can store in my unheated garage. Any thoughts?

    Thank you for your wonderful blog!

  3. Hi Anne,
    Great timing! I am just coordinating an order with an organic farmer in Eastern Wa for root veggies. It should happen in the next 2 weeks – potatoes, carrots, beets and hopefully more. I’ll be doing a blog post tonight and emailing all yahoo groups I can think of about it. xo!

  4. Wonderful! Thanks so much.
