Book Review (Backyard Homesteading: A Back-To-Basics Guide to Self-Sufficiency by David Toht)
I am the sort that even if I cannot successfully or maybe even legally take part in a particular branch of homesteading, such as raising goats, I still enjoy reading about it. Personally I found the section on beekeeping extremely interesting. I was not familiar with the holistic approach of beekeeping using the top-bar hive until I read this book. If you are interested in exploring the world of top-bar hives check out BackYardHive.com
Overall I would certainly recommend this 255 page book from the folks at Creative Homeowner. If nothing else it will inspire you to dream big and give you a gentle nudge in the right direction.
