This is a practical and engaging guide to transforming an ordinary backyard into a productive farm. Step-by-step instructions are provided for 10 projects including green houses, beehives, rabbit hutches, raised beds, potting sheds, trellises, fences, and more. Each detailed plan is accompanied by the author's clear, instructive drawings. More than just a manual, the book also offers entertaining and enlightening interviews with both experts and "average Joe" farmers. We learn what motivates them to become backyard farmers and maybe even a couple of funny stories along the way.
