Yes, I'm speaking of our very own Leigh over at 5 Acres and A Dream. How she ever found time to do the thousand and one time-consuming tasks necessary for this book project of hers to become a reality is a mystery to me.
Talk about a busy lady. Leigh and her husband have spent the last several years building their homestead, and it's been an intense period for them. They've tackled so much . . . from completely renovating their home and related energy-efficient, self-sufficient systems to delving into homestead animals and their care to maintaining a huge garden and preserving much of their own food supply to conscientiously improving their previously neglected fields and pastures. All this while maintaining their zest for life and dreams of things yet to be done.
Knowing her as I do from her blogging, this book was written with the thought that it will offer practical help and insight to everyone who reads it. She's a generous person always willing to share.
Although I've not gotten a copy of Leigh's book in my hands, I'm sure it will be chock full of informative materials for homesteading wanna-bes and seasoned back-to-the-landers alike. I've always greatly admired Leigh because of her finely honed researching abilities and careful record keeping. Knowing the way Leigh writes on her blog, I'm certain it will be an enjoyable read, too.
She's presently offering a giveaway drawing on her blog for a copy of this hot-off-the-presses book. You couldn't go wrong by entering your name for a chance to win. Just click HERE to see how to sign up.
This lady knocks my socks off with all she accomplishes. Now all of us interested in the self-sufficient, homesteading/farming type of life can benefit from her disciplined efforts in creating this book.
I still don't know where she found the time to do it.
