Small Scale Grain Growing Book Back In Print

I just learned that a much coveted book on small scale grain growing has come back into print after being unavailable for a long time.  You can find it here:

Enjoy!

Thanks Suzie - I've just looked it up and searched on line - looks great. Do you know how small scale 'small scale' is? It doesn't say anywhere how many hectares 'small' applies to.

Yes, Thanks for this heads-up, Suzie! I googled pancake garden and found this 1978 article with him in MEN.

There's a chart a the start that indicates some plot sizes for different grain crops. Some of them are longer than the average yard, but if you could modify the dimensions into more of a block, it ought to be doable to plant a crop or two in a large yard.

Re: Small Scale Grain Growing Book Back In Print

Hi Sue

Just checked out your link and it was just was I was looking for. A straightforward description of grains, what you can do with them and how much grain & land you need. I particularly like the notes on cooking grains in a thermos over 8-12 hours. Sounds very energy efficient to me. I'm going to give a try and see what happens!

Thanks

Freddy
