Product 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 September volume includes the following projects:

* Eat seasonally
* Can tomatoes
* Bring your chickens home
* Experience voluntary simplicity

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 If you are interested in modern day homesteading, make friends with Anna Hess Dec 18 2012

I purchased each of the months separately and just gobbled them up. Even though I grew up in the country, I always learn from these little volumes. I read every word of every project... even the ones I knew I might not do for years or might never do. Anna explains things so well and makes it so interesting, I just want to see what happens next! I am glad to see that the individual monthly articles have been compiled into a single volume. I would encourage anyone thinking of buying one to go ahead and spring for the full volume. You will not be disappointed.

Anna's advice is practical, manageable, and clearly laid out so that you know what you are going to encounter as you start a project. Whether you are seriously considering getting a few backyard chickens or home canning for the first time, or just dreaming about the possibility, I think you will find this an enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful information, easy reading Nov. 14 2014

I like these books. She stays on point with chores and happenings to expect for the month, and also some general, useful info about "closer to the land living." She goes into detail about eating seasonally, canning, starting out with chickens, and voluntary simplicity. Each section starts with a goal statement, estimate of cost, estimate of time, and if it's kid friendly.

There are 12 of these books, one for each calendar month, and each is a chapter in Anna's book "The Weekend Homesteader", available in full color paperback on Amazon.

I have all issues of Weekend Homesteader and they've become my go-to reference to keep me on track with my back yard farm. While I would love to homestead, I have to realize that as seniors in our mid-sixties, I can be happy on our 1-acre rural lot raising most of our own food, including chickens. Working with other like-minded folks, we can still share our bounties and severely cut back on our food, electricity, and other expenses. Thank you, Anna, for sharing your wonderful experiences with us to make our back-to-basics lifestyle journeys easier and more meaningful. I highly recommend these issues to anyone wanting to live a simpler life.

Short but informative articles. Great ideas for beginners and more advanced. Even if you aren't homesteading, the articles are great for all things domestic.
