    I appreciate the podcasts. Like you said, learning from people who have done this before – made mistakes and subsequently became successful at it – is very valuable. Thank you for producing this podcast. It seems like there are quite a few books on homesteading in general – encompassing a variety of related topics. I’d be interested in a recommendation in that area. I’m more of pseudo homesteader living on a quarter acre lot in the city. But its still nice to dip a tow or two in – maybe can some peaches and pears, pick fresh veggies every day in the summer, etc. Thanks again for the podcasts!!!
