Still don't know much about how to handle our gradual move to self-sustaining agriculture and perhaps "community supported agriculture", but I'm looking for a good list of books to read this winter. I saw a thread a while back with a list of resources, can anyone find it or suggest titles? We have "The self sufficient Life", but I have a lot more questions about agriculture than it provides. I would really appreciate it. I'd rather learn the easy way (in books) that the hard way (in sweat, cash and heartache) as much as possible. Deb FYI - we are in Maryland, near everything (stores, etc), own 50 acres cleared and previously planted in corn. Spent last year and a half clearing neglected land with bush hog. Hope to fence off unused acres on hilly area for cows in spring. Daughter keeps horses for income, so we are planting hay to avoid buying as a first step. Have tractor, bush hog. Willing to buy some equiptment. Hope to start serious garden next year. Thanks folks.
