Books: Backyard Homestead & Seed Sewing and Saving

A very, lovely lady found me on Etsy, and passed along a couple books she thought I'd like to read. As if I could not ask for more, she also gave me some advice about the topics covered and unanswered in each.

Recommended Books:

Backyard Homestead by Carleen Madigan

Seed Sewing and Saving by Carole B. Turner

I will be adding these to my Amazon Wish List to buy next!

Anyone have any other recommendations on books, websites, and organizations about Farming, Gardening, and Homestead Living, PLEASE let me know!

Please browse and support other Back to Basics families on One Income including:

Threadhead58's Etsy provides vintage, affordable jewelry, upcycled accessories and more.


  1. You are too kind!!! Thank you so much for the props...I am always patrolling on good books like these. Once we get our home built next year I am going to be a homesteading queen with a garden, orchard, and even a few chickens! It's my goal to have a system in place to support our family's needs on as little money as possible, as well as the lost skills of the past that will be like gold in the future! There is another book I though about...The Encyclopedia of Country Living and The Prairie Girls Guide to Life (i haven't seen the Prairie Girls book in person, but heard about it)

  2. I will look those two up and fit them into my posts this week! Thanks for more recommendations, Stephanie!


Please keep things positive and clever.
