I have been reading a wonderful book called
"Our Homestead Story" "The First Years".
Written by Mr. and M rs. Stephen B. Castleberry of Poplar Wisconsin.

Back in print, with a beautiful new cover! This book is the story of the Castleberry family's decision to opt for a more self-sufficient lifestyle, and how, with absolutely no previous experience, undertook the ultimate "unit study": they bought a farm and began to learn as they went. You'll laugh til you cry, and you'll learn a lot about farm life and about yourself.

Is it true that in the month of February if you live on a homestead or farm your looking through see catalogs and picking out baby chicks for your chicken coop. Spring is around the corner and life is fresh when you see the yellow daffodils blooming in the Georgia SUN.
