My dream has always been to live close to the land. My goal is simpler, sustainable, more self-reliant living. In 2009 my husband and I bought a neglected 1920s-built bungalow on 5 acres, which we've gradually built into our homestead.

Summary

The 5 Acres & A Dream homesteading series reveals the nitty-gritty, down-and-dirty realities of working toward a simpler, sustainable, more self-reliant lifestyle on a self-sufficient homestead. Leigh and Dan Tate had a dream but very little money. This series shares how they made their dream a reality: facing the challenges, solving the problems, and sometimes changing their minds along the way.

5 Acres & A Dream The Book is the first in the series. It begins with the years leading up to the Tates' 2009 purchase of a 1920s farmhouse on five acres in the foothills of Southern Appalachia. This first book in the series shares how they defined their dream, developed property hunting criteria, faced setbacks, and finally found the right place. It describes how they set and prioritized their goals and mapped out a plan. It shares the difficulties and obstacles they faced, and what they’ve learned about energy, water, and food self-sufficiency .

About the Author

Leigh Tate is a long-time homesteader and a passionate advocate for simpler, sustainable, more self-reliant living. Through her books and blog, she shares what she and her husband Dan are learning about homesteading, permaculture design, off-grid food preservation, regenerative soil management, holistic livestock keeping, plus energy, water, and resource stewardship. She enjoys food growing, critter keeping, cheesemaking, woodstove and solar cooking, writing about homesteading, and encouraging others to make their own dreams come true.

Of 5 Acres & A Dream The Book she says, "I started blogging when an acquaintance asked to see photos of our new place. It seemed like a good way to keep a record of our progress, and that's what it's become. Little did I know so many others would be interested. In fact, folks started telling me I should write a book. In 2013, I published 5 Acres & A Dream The Book. Since then, I've written a number of books on homesteading as well as blog posts. I continue to be both thrilled and honored when they encourage others toward their own homesteading dream."

Summary

From Amazon: "Decades before the terms “eco-friendly” and “sustainable growing” entered the vernacular, How to Grow More Vegetables demonstrated that small-scale, high-yield, all-organic gardening methods could yield bountiful crops over multiple growing cycles using minimal resources in a suburban environment. The concept that John Jeavons and the team at Ecology Action launched more than 40 years ago has been embraced by the mainstream and continues to gather momentum. Today, How to Grow More Vegetables, now in its fully revised and updated 8th edition, is the go-to reference for food growers at every level: from home gardeners dedicated to nurturing their backyard edibles in maximum harmony with nature’s cycles, to small-scale commercial producers interested in optimizing soil fertility and increasing plant productivity. Whether you hope to harvest your first tomatoes next summer or are planning to grow enough to feed your whole family in years to come, How to Grow More Vegetables is your indispensable sustainable garden guide."

Summary

From Amazon: "In telling the story of Paradise Lot, Toensmeier and Bates explain the principles and practices of permaculture, the choice of exotic and unusual food plants, the techniques of design and cultivation, and, of course, the adventures, mistakes, and do-overs in the process. Packed full of detailed, useful information about designing a highly productive permaculture garden, Paradise Lot is also a funny and charming story of two single guys, both plant nerds, with a wild plan: to realize the garden of their dreams and meet women to share it with. Amazingly, on both counts, they succeed."

From Amazon: "Whether you want to live off the grid in a fully self-sufficient way, or just turn your backyard into your own small homestead, here is advice on backyard chicken care, how to plant a no-till garden that heals the soil, composting, canning, and much more.

The Weekend Homesteader is organized by month—so whether it’s January or June you’ll find exciting, quick-to-do projects that allow you to start your own homestead without getting overwhelmed. If you need to fit homesteading into a few hours each weekend and would like to have fun while doing it, these projects will be right up your alley, whether you live on a forty-acre farm, a postage-stamp lawn in suburbia, or a high rise.

Permaculture techniques will turn your homestead into a vibrant ecosystem and attract native pollinators while converting our society's waste into high-quality compost and mulch. Meanwhile, enjoy the fruits of your labor right away as you learn the basics of cooking and eating seasonally, then preserve homegrown produce for later by drying, canning, freezing, or simply filling your kitchen cabinets with storage vegetables.

As you become more self-sufficient, you'll save seeds, prepare for power outages, and tear yourself away from a full-time job, while building a supportive and like-minded community. You won't be completely eliminating your reliance on the grocery store, but you will be plucking low-hanging (and delicious!) fruits out of your own garden by the time all forty-eight projects are complete."

Anne's correct, she's a she!

I confess that this particular cat gets catered to because she's our best mouser: mice, shrews, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits. She keeps the varmint populations under control! It's unusual that she's even in the house, she's such an outdoor cat.
