I've been gardening and canning for a couple of years and now have decided to take the next big step. Hubby and I are planning a move in a few months, the exact location is as of yet undecided, but we know we will be going to MO. We intend to buy a couple of acres and build a home. I would like to do most of the work ourselves, but he isn't sure. Help me find a way to convince him that it is possible? Also, anyone have a suggestion on some good books for beginners? Raising enough food to care for ourselves is the ideal for us. So where do we start?
