Are you ready to transform your property into a self-sufficient paradise? Look no further! We are excited to share with you The Self-Sufficient Backyard, a comprehensive guide that will empower you to become an independent, self-sufficient homesteader. Whether you have a small plot of land or a larger property, we have the knowledge and expertise to help you achieve self-sufficiency and even generate a profitable income.
In The Self-Sufficient Backyard, we leave no stone unturned as we dive into the nitty-gritty details of various projects designed to enhance your self-sufficiency. From water collection systems to food preservation techniques, off-grid power solutions, and even creating a medicinal garden, we cover it all. Our goal is to provide you with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions, accompanied by helpful illustrations and expert advice.
One of the most remarkable aspects we discovered is that you can achieve self-sufficiency in terms of food with just 1,020 square feet of land per person. Yes, that’s right! Less than 10% of our own ¼ acre parcel was sufficient to sustain a family of four, allowing us to produce surplus goods to sell and generate a healthy profit year-round. The beauty of our system is its flexibility, as it can be downsized to suit smaller plots or families.
Let’s start with water, the lifeblood of any homestead. We share our simple and inexpensive water collection system, enabling you to collect and store every gallon you need in affordable tanks. Not only that, but we’ll also guide you on how to filter and drink this water, ensuring a sustainable and independent water supply.
Our knowledge extends to a medicinal garden, where we reveal the seven most effective plants that should grace every backyard concerned with health. Over four decades of experience have taught us the true power of these plants, allowing us to create tinctures and remedies that are not only effective but also readily available in your own backyard.
Imagine the freedom of not relying on the grid for electricity. In The Self-Sufficient Backyard, we unveil our reliable and cost-effective hybrid electricity system. With our guidance, you’ll discover which batteries, controllers, cables, and inverters are best suited for your needs, ensuring maximum efficiency. Say goodbye to worries about rising energy costs, power outages, or deliberate attacks on the grid. You can even sell excess power back to the utility company, turning the tables and making money off them!
Pesticides are a thing of the past when you implement our automated 24-hour bio insect control system. By providing homes for beneficial creatures like bats and bluebirds, you can naturally control pests and enjoy an organic harvest. Bats alone can devour an astonishing 4,000 insects per night, making your backyard a more comfortable place while protecting your crops.
Storage and preservation are key components of self-sufficiency. Discover our various root cellar designs, suitable for any homestead. Whether you prefer full-sized root cellars, under-the-house storage, or smaller options like barrel or trash can cellars, we have something for everyone. Preserve your harvest and enjoy fresh produce throughout the year.
And let’s not forget about the importance of a reliable water source. We cover this topic in-depth, sharing our experiences with wells, pumps, and various water sources. If you rely solely on tap water from the public utility company, you are not truly independent. Our guide will help you establish a reliable water source, complete with pictures and step-by-step instructions.
We’ve utilized many of the old-time skills and techniques from yesteryear. Over time, we’ve incorporated some of the newer methods for doing things. But make no mistake, even though we’ve picked and chosen some of the modern ways of doing tasks, we still retain the practical knowledge of the old ways.
The DIY Projects from the 1900s digital bonus will take you on a journey back in time, providing you with step-by-step instructions and illustrations for a variety of self-sufficient projects. You’ll learn how to build smokehouses for preserving meat, create effective traps for wild game, construct root cellars for food storage, and much more. These projects were essential for our forefathers’ survival, and now you can learn their valuable skills to enhance your own self-sufficiency.
But that’s not all! As a special bonus, we’re also including the Homestead Cookbook. Inside, you’ll find a collection of delicious recipes made from homegrown ingredients. From garden-fresh salads to hearty stews and mouthwatering desserts, this cookbook will inspire you to create wholesome meals using the bounties of your own backyard.
