Interesting an informative pamphlet on how people in the colder or cooler parts of the country can story their garden grown fruits and vegetables until they can be consumed. It avoids the cost and effort of canning, and is aimed at the use of space in an unheated basement for example. Useful document to get people to think about what they can do for little of no cost.
There is a wealth of information here in a fairly small book, and it guarantees that all of my free time for the spring and summer is tied up getting ready for a better harvest in the summer and fall. We will eat better this winter, and for many years to come thanks to the author of this little book.
There is a series of these little pamphlet booklets. They are an average of 30 to 32 pages long. They all are on a wide range of do it yourself home survival topics. I am not a "preper" or anything like that but I do want to have a more productive garden and be able to store what I harvest more efficiently. I want to be able to store what my husband hunts and what I grow without having to rely on electricity because I have lived in hurricane prone areas and snow storm areas were power was lost for hours, days, even a week once, and we have lost a lot of valuable food. These pamphlets are awesome to help you learn what you need to look into. They do not give many answers but are awesome blueprints to what you need to look into for what you want to do. I have learned a lot of what I wanted to do from these, then go to the library to borrow the books with the information I need! We are slowly collecting the whole series.
This little book has a lot of good information about storing foods. I'd recommend it to anyone who just wants some basic information that doesn't cost an arm and a leg...
This is a great little starter book for folks who are just getting their homesteading skills together. It has a lot of useful information.I would not recommend it for anyone who is a seasoned gardener.
Purchased this for my husband as this is one of his "retirement projects". Very good ideas and information about how various veggies and fruits "like" to be stored.
Very little filler and to the point. Informative and utilitarian read that leaves out unnecessary babble. I like these books!
I really enjoy ALL of the Storey Counrty Wisdom Bulletins, and for a small bulletin, it has a lot to offer. I learned more than I thought I would.I add notes to my Storey Bulletins, and then it becomes a HANDY TOOL you can use for a SPACIFIC TOPIC. I often take them into the garden with me. I own most of them, and plan to own all of them before too long.
