I consider myself an expert gardener. I can produce enough fruit and vegetables to support myself and several others. I have raised several different types of animals for meat. One of my favorite books is Practical Farming and Gardening. It was written in 1902. There are not only discussions about successful operations but detail is also paid to causes of failure. It can be downloaded at http://www.archive.org/details/cu31924031487188 . Another of my favorites is called National Standard Squab Book. Squab is the high class term for pigeon. My copy of the book is the 50th edition published in 1927. This book can be downloaded free at http://www.archive.org/details/cu31924000029417 . This website has thousands of books that can be downloaded, sent to a Kindle, or read on line. I suggest downloading and printing it up.
