I'm so glad you mentioned volunteering with folks you can meet at the farmer's market. I have been mentored by a sweet couple and have spent almost 2 years working with them in their 5000+ square foot container garden. I'm even planning on writing a book about my experience. There's a whole world out there to explore and so many kind folks who are willing to help us on our journeys. Just ask. I'll be ordering "You Can Farm" next time I visit the library website. Thanks, farmer!

Carla's book is the most awesome resource! Unfortunately I believe she is deceased, or I'm sure she would be leading the back-to-the-land parade. Keep on, keeping on, Jenna... We love your passion for living and building a country life with good farming, food, friends, etc.

I was wondering, how do I subscribe to your blog? I would love to see your blog pop up in my email. I love your zest for life, your style of writing,and your honesty about your struggles and overcoming obstacles on your homestead.

Carla's book is the definitive book, in my opinion. She could do it all and did most of it. What challenges she faced.

In the 1980's Carl's book went out of print, so I sent her a letter asking if she knew anywhere I could buy one. She sent me a handwritten note back in a box in which she had photo copied the WHOLE book. It cost me $25 which I thought was a deal. I have the "book" in several binders now, and often think I should get a real copy but it was so wonderful of her to do that for me.

This is the first vlog I've watched, but I've been reading your blog for quite a while...my first introduction to homesteading or even thinking about returning to traditional life was your lovely book "Made From Scratch". Just wanted to say you are such an inspiration and that what you do every day is meaningful to people who have never met you. I hope that good energies follow you and you will keep farming with joy, creativity, and love!

Made from Scratch was my first book in this genre - got me hooked! Second one was The Weekend Homesteader by Anna Hess. These were just right for me.
