Vegetable growing is made easy with clear, sensible advice on the basics and plenty of inventive tips. Find out the best ways to store and preserve the harvest, learn how to make apple juice, cheese, butter and even how to plant your own herbal remedy border. Practical advice on keeping chickens, bees, goats and pigs provides essential reading for anyone just starting out with livestock.
