Publisher's Summary

Mini Farming describes a holistic approach to small-area farming that will show you how to produce 85 percent of an average family's food on just a quarter acre - and earn $10,000 in cash annually while spending less than half the time that an ordinary job would require. Even if you have never been a farmer or a gardener, this book covers everything you need to know to get started: buying and saving seeds, starting seedlings, establishing raised beds, soil fertility practices, composting, dealing with pest and disease problems, crop rotation, farm planning, and much more. Because self-sufficiency is the objective, subjects such as raising backyard chickens and home canning are also covered along with numerous methods for keeping costs down and production high.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Almost unlistenable

The content is good and straightforward. The voice actor reading it may as well have been an automated computer. Siri and Alexa would make it more engaging and less robotic. This is not an exaggeration. I’m sure he’s nice and all, but reading aloud just isn’t his thing, dog.

Good info for Starting, bad bad narration

Is good info if you are starting out, if you have experience no need for this one. found it very hard to finish due to the horrible narrator sounds like a computer voice and makes the book boring even though you can learn a lot if you are a beginner
