Book Description

Twelve months to self-sufficiency!

This fully updated second edition of the popular Weekend Homesteader series includes exciting, short projects that you can use to dip your toes into the vast ocean of homesteading 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.

The November volume includes the following projects:

* Rotate your garden vegetables
* Roast a chicken
* Store drinking water
* Diversify your income

The second edition has been revised and expanded to match the paperback, with extra photos and feedback from weekend homesteaders just like you, plus permaculture-related avenues for the more advanced homesteader to explore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of many; all in one place. November 1, 2011
By Brian
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This series continues to amaze and inspire.

Every edition is like a summary of many other books all in one place and for a fraction of the price!

The instructions are easy to follow and many of the authors personal experiences and tips are included to help you along the way. For example this month includes an excel spreadsheet of the author's garden notes for use as a template and an example of how to document vegetable locations for proper garden rotation.

The author also includes many great references in case one particular subject requires further research or piques your interest.

I'd recommend this e-book to anyone that gardens, cooks, or is looking to become more self sufficient.

I'm looking forward to future issues.

A great value! A well-written and informative e-book with tips for both beginning and seasoned homesteaders. The section on garden-planning was very helpful and thorough. I'm looking forward to reading the rest in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where does the time go? October 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
With the purchase of the November issue I am now officially three months behind in reading this excellent emag. I've been extremely pleased with all the previous issues I've bought and read, and no doubt I will find something in the September issue I wish I'd done in September. That said, these ideas are timeless and there will be another September, October, November, etc. next year. Hopefully there will be new issues, ideas and projects, as well!

I live Downunder and your November is our May, but when you work that out - everything else is a breeze.
So many nice reads, good advises all over the place and the price is, for delivered magazine, next to nothing.
Would love to read more from you guys, as we are now finishing the cycle of full year

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful useful useful! January 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Even if you are more the "One Season Gardener" than the Weekend Homesteader, there is still a TON of useful information in each volume of this super series. I enjoy each and every one, and have put more than one idea into practice! They even disabuse you of some notions that cause you to sell yourself short on your own abilities. A real must have for a homeowner.

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, 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.
