A New Book!

My wife picked up a great book from our church yard sale. It is entitled "600 More Things To Make For The Farm And Home".

The beauty of this book is that it is just a bunch of plans to build things, ranging from out buildings to water delivery systems. All done by hand. It is also great because it is old school wisdom that was published in 1952. In my opinion, so much knowledge and wisdom has been lost since those days. You know, the days before the giant agribusinesses and commodity farming. Much farming was local, in those days, so the wisdom is applicable to what we want to accomplish on our homestead.

The plans are strait forward and easy to read and provide a full materials list. I looked on Amazon and quantities are extremely limited on this volume as it is out of print, but if you come across a copy, I recommend picking it up. Good luck.
