If you’re anything like me you’re constantly looking to improve your skill set and knowledge base. Especially when it comes to self sufficiency, energy and food production. At some point I’d love to move my office to a completely off grid “Hobbit hole”. THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF COUNTRY LIVING is a great addition to your library. It is one of the definitive manuals of basic skills and country wisdom for living off the land, being prepared, and doing it yourself. Whether it’s a farm or homestead, suburb, or city.

40 PROJECTS FOR BUILDING YOUR BACKYARD HOMESTEAD is your Hands-On, Step-by-Step Guide to Sustainable Living. As we start to slow down outside with the change in weather, I start to immediately think about the spring. Planning my garden, landscape projects, and ways to get dirty outback as soon as the weather starts warming. I’m looking at a few big ones this year. Two new outdoor living spaces and an effort to make my garden space more aesthetically appealing. One a solar powered “shed”, more of a reading/office room in a back corner of the yard made of recycled, rescued materials. The other a deck, barroom, outhouse all made of recycled pallets near a new firepit- an effort to allow more outside-socially distanced entertaining.
