Ms. Rothman's book is visual romp through all of the possibilities for your own "farm," whether is a bunch of acres or your suburban backyard, there's a lot to be gleaned. It's full of practical advice and information from getting the ground ready for a garden, to planting (and plant parts identification), animal husbandry, construction projects (even a barn), knots, beekeeping and it's sprinkled with recipes throughout including a whole chapter focusing on the kitchen (you need to know what you can do with your bounty). She even gives a bit of info on other uses of your harvest such as natural dyes, spinning yarn, even winemaking (dandelion wine - now I can put those nasty weeds to a good use!). The super plus side, no fancy tools, equipment or gadgets are needed - it's pure simplicity. If you ever dreamed of living on a farm or have that itch to get your hands into the dirt, Ms. Rothman's book lowers the hurdle and gives you the confidence to get going. You'll definitely put the book down, the boots on and charge out into the yard with a "yes, I can do that!" attitude. And if this isn't you, but someone you know, this would make a memorable gift!
