Review: Country Acres: Country Wisdom for the Working Landscape by David Larkin
Review: This was another estate lot acquisition. I waffled on whether to keep it. I'm glad I did. Full of marvelous photographs, it seems like it would be just another pretty picture book. But Larkin adds in excellent information, useful advice on soil, trees, vegetables and grass. He even has a section on farm animals and tractors! While I don't plan on moving to the country and starting a farm any time soon, I enjoyed reading and dreaming about "what if?". I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the farming life. It would also make an excellent gift to the enthusiastic gardener in your life.
