Paradise Lot: Two Plant Geeks, One-Tenth of an Acre, and the Making of an Edible Garden Oasis in the City

This is a book I’ve been reading that I think someone who is trying to build a homestead on a small to mid-sized property might appreciate. What I think I like best about this book is it is more of a autobiography than a textbook on how to do it. You get to follow along as a couple of guys with a passion for growing their own food figure it out and make it work. It’s a really good read that will teach you plenty.
