The Backyard Homestead: Seasonal Planner
Whether it's pruning your apple trees or tuning up your tractor, knowing when to do each chore is key to a well-run farm. Ann Larkin Hansen divides each season into early, mid, and late sections and details what needs to be done during each to keep your garden, field, pasture, orchard, beeyard, barn, coop, equipment shed, wood-lot, and wildlife habitat in good order. After setting seasonal priorities, every chapter examines a specific topic- such as cover crops, honey bees, and making hay- that's especially relevant for that sub-season. This practical, informative volume also provides plenty of room for your own record-keeping.
