Ferraro-Fanning, Angela. Little homesteader.
"A Winter Treasury of Recipes, Crafts and Wisdom (Little Country Cottage) offers nature-based crafts, bakes and gardening projects in a celebration of self-sufficient, eco-friendly, country cottage-style life. The seasonal gardening and growing projects, such as planting bare root berry bushes in the ground or in containers, can be done in a big back yard or on a balcony, making this eco-friendly activity book a fun resource, whether readers are based in town or country. Woven alongside the cooking, crafting and planting projects are little snippets of seasonal information and self-sufficient wisdom from homesteading teacher Angela Fanning of Axe and Root Homestead, with a focus on enjoying and celebrating the best of what the winter season has to offer."-- Publisher description.
