A gardening book for anyone who’s dreamed of going back to the land and living a simpler life… In this sequel to the award-winning memoir Little Farm in the Foothills, Little Farm Homegrown follows the continuing adventures of Boomer homesteaders pursuing self-reliance in the foothills of the Pacific Northwest.
Little Farm Homegrown: A Memoir of Food-Growing, Midlife, and Self-Reliance on a Small Homestead
After two city-bred Boomers weather their first, tumultuous year on their rural backyard farm, the couple foresees smooth sailing for the future…only to discover their homesteading journey has only begun. In this lively true story, Susan and her husband John must cope with the demands of their middle years while raising chickens, growing organic food and living closer to—and often battling—nature, as they transform an old clearcut into a working homestead.
Like the first Little Farm memoir, Little Farm Homegrown is a warmhearted story for gardeners and dreamers of all ages. The memoir, Book 2 of the Little Farm series, celebrates optimism in the face of the many challenges the couple encountered, shared with a sense of humor and a deep appreciation for the natural world.
