George Washington Was A student As Well As Inovator

"Always eager to improve his methods and products in farming, Washington was a constant seeker of new ideas and information.  He owned a sizable library of books on agriculture production and maintained a correspondence with several farmers in the United States and in England regarding ideas on better farm methods and techniques." (Quoted from Donald E. Howard's blog).

This is one thing we can do today, without a doubt.  Read lots of books, talk to lots of farmers/homesteaders, follow blogs (like this one :) ).  There is a ton of knowledge and wisdom on homesteading to be gleend from the past and present.  What have you read lately?
