More About the Author

Anna Hess dreamed about moving back to the land ever since her parents dragged her off their family farm at the age of eight. She worked as a field biologist and nonprofit organizer before acquiring fifty-eight acres and a husband, then quit her job to homestead full time. She admits that real farm life involves a lot more hard work than her childhood memories entailed, but the reality is much more fulfilling and she loves pigging out on sun-warmed strawberries and experimenting with no-till gardening, mushroom propagation, and chicken pasturing.

She also enjoys writing about the adventures, both on her blog at WaldenEffect.org, and in her books. Her first paperback, The Weekend Homesteader, helped thousands of homesteaders-to-be find ways to fit their dreams into the hours leftover from a full-time job. The Naturally Bug-Free garden, which suggests permaculture techniques of controlling pest invertebrates in the vegetable garden, is due out in spring 2015 from Skyhorse Publishing. In addition, a heaping handful of ebooks serve a similar purpose.

I practice a low impact, no-till style of gardening and it is hard to find good guides out there to give me the details I need, but that deliver them in a way that is meaningful to me. Anna's is a holistic approach where gardening is just a part of life, and she has done the awesome task of recording her day-to-day work in the garden to share with people who are following a similar path. This volume of "Weekend Homesteader" looks ahead to the coming fall. Anna shares a simple description of her methods for planting several types of fall veggie seeds, and she advises which seeds to scatter thickly or sparsely depending on your desired outcome-- start with lettuce, that's what I did!

The Weekend Homesteader is a gardening guide, but it is a part of a much broader vision and a lifestyle. This is one of several ebooks I have read by Anna, and I've been a fan of her blog for several years now. I am deeply appreciative for all that she has shared. From gardening advice, to cooking tips, to hanging the clothes out on the line, her passion in this short ebook is captivating.

Read it. It'll be good for you.

While I'm not drying my tomatoes in the car, I was inspired to dry tomatoes (I'm using a low-heat oven) after reading this issue. And you can't imagine how hard I looked last year for exactly *how* to hang clothes. Anna thinks of everything!

I could hardly wait for August to roll around so that I could see what Anna had in store for her readers this month.
Again, she did not disappoint.
This e-book is an easy read, but chock full of info that I can put to good use.

I have learned at least one new thing to do with homesteading in each of these chapters. I would recommend any of these books. I am just getting started with homesteading, and these made me see that a little can be done at a time to make a difference.

I love all the Weekend Homesteader titles. She has great no-nonsense jobs to improve your farm and work toward self-sustainability on your weekend free time. Many of the articles made me look at things in a new way, and I've learned a lot from them!

So easily explained in everyday terms. Good all around information with helping one decide if trying to save seeds or raise chickens would be possible. At least, it helped me decide that i am not ready yet to have my own chicken farm!
