I am in two minds about this book. While the self sufficiency aspects really interested me there were some elements that made for distressing reading - especially around animals. I will read more of Jenna’s memoirs to see how things progress for her.

This is the second book I have read by Jenna and while I don't feel the need to seek out land and be a homesteader, her books have inspired me to grow my own veggies and be more mindful of sustainable meat processing practices. These books are easy to read and you're always rooting for Jenna to triumph in her battles with landlords, locals and farm challenges. I look forward to reading Jenna's next book.

Cute. I don't think this added anything to my bank of knowledge, but I'm all for people finding a measure of self-sufficiency and enjoyment in life.

I love reading journal style books and this was certainly that format. I love reading about the farm life and this was also certainly that.
For me, this book was good but it was not great. I have read her other two books Made From Scratch and Barnheart and out of all of them Barnheart is my favorite.

The artwork in this is lovely and the look at a year on the farm is great but it is a bit too much of a disjointed journal for me to love it. I wish she had written more practical farm advise, shared more recipes and personal stories and farming experiences into it but I don't think that was her goal. I think it was meant to be more of a gift/artsy type book. I am ok with that... it is what some were hoping for and I am glad they enjoyed it.

She also went more "spiritual" in this one and we don't agree with the history of religion. I don't hold that against her and I feel she is free to express that however she likes but I cannot love the book because I think more research on her part might be needed. I am of Irish/English descent and even I know the Celtic/Druid religion was not the first world religion. I guess it is if you disregard the Jews or the Bible but... I cannot. That aspect kind of tainted it for me.

I still love Jenna and her writing but if you are going to read something of her's I recommend Barnheart instead. I still want to take a look at her Chick Days book... it looks helpful! :)
