planner offers expert advice on what tasks to do around your farm and
when to do them — no matter where on the planet you call
Whether it's pruning your apple trees or tuning up your tractor,
knowing when to do each chore is key to a well-run farm. Ann Larkin
Hansen divides each season into early, mid, and late sections and
details what needs to be done during each to keep your garden, field,
pasture, orchard, beeyard, barn, coop, equipment shed, woodlot, and
wildlife habitate in good order. After setting seasonal priorities,
every chapter examines a specific topic – such as cover
crops, honey bees, and making hay – that's especially
relevant for that sub-season. This practical, informative volume also
provides plenty of room for your own record-keeping.
Ann Larkin Hansen sets the priorities for each area of the farm,
including the barn, garden, orchard, field, pasture, and woodlot. For
every critical turn of the year (12 in all), Hansen provides an
at-a-glance to-do list along with tips and a more in-depth discussion
of key topics for the season.
Easy-reference charts, checklists, and record-keeping sections help you
keep track of it all.
