March Weekend Homesteader

Weekend Homesteader: MarchEmbark on a spring homesteading adventure with this final volume of Weekend Homesteader.  You'll plant a garden of cool season crops to feed you as early as April, and will also inoculate logs with edible mushrooms for years' worth of feasts.  Meanwhile, find out how to enhance the long term health of your homestead by building a compost pile and attracting native pollinators.

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

I hope you'll consider splurging 99 cents to buy a copy of my newest ebook from Amazon's Kindle store.  And many thanks in advance if you can find the time to write a brief review.

<Weekend Homesteader paperback As usual, I'm also very glad to email you a free pdf copy to read if you don't have the spare cash, or just don't want to deal with downloading an app so you can read the ebook on your computer or phone.  Just email me with your request --- no strings attached.

Don't forget that Weekend Homesteader: February is still available, full of information about easy berries, backyard chickens, buying in bulk, and informal apprenticeships.  Thanks for reading!

Just got my Kindle Fire with "Prime" From our youngest son as a Christmas gift.

The February Weekend Homesteader was the first item that I down loaded onto my kindle. I just enjoyed that issue as it explained how to care for ever bearing rasberrys and it is available at a 'touch' for future use.

I will be getting the March issue to read about mushrooms.

Thanks so much for checking them out, Mona! I enrolled all of the Weekend Homesteader books in the lending library program recently, so you can also read them there for free if you want.
