Dear MOTHER: August/September 2013

Reader letters about self-sufficiency and sustainable living, the U.S. Army’s net-zero initiative, backyard chickens, the White House garden, the Puyallup MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR, an outdoor wood boiler, The Encyclopedia of Country Living, raised garden beds and pressure canning.

Improve your self-sufficiency by preserving your own food at home.
