I first read a john seymour book in the 1970s.
his books like the fat of the land and the complete book of self sufficency. must have encouraged millions of people to try to grow more of theyre own food, and move to the country they did for my hippie family at least.
There are lots of books on gardening out there but this book is special john seymour is one of the best writers Ive ever read ,not only does he really know about when to plant things. but also what to plant, where, how, and how to preserve it.also he writes with the sort of style that makes you want to get off your chair and go out into the garden.
This is the best book on gardening to feed yourself that I have ever read it covers everything .There are books that go into more detail on specific subjects. but as a general book for a person who wants to feed his or her family well on veg and eggs, chicken, ect this book cant be beat.

We will all need a copy of this before too long - my belief. It is an interesting book and my husband has two copies now - one to loan out and one to keep for our own use. Good value for money. Highly recommended for a good, productive read.

If you are a gardener, you need this. It is the bible of gardening books.
Check when the book you buy was published. There has been updates and corrections in later books and the newest editions has nicely colored drawings.
