Shifting to a Farmer's Life

"The Practical Homestead" might have its limitations on Long Island but it still is pretty useful.

 If you're interested in keeping poultry, transforming a flower garden into a vegetable patch, pickling or preserving foods or anything else to make your lifestyle a little more self-sustaining, this book will help.

It's designed for larger properties and probably far more work than we'd want to handle but it is packed with plenty of good ideas that can be scaled down or adjusted to fit ordinary lives.
