Gardening/Homesteading Resources

I don't know about you, but I just love reading. Sometimes I spend more time planning, designing, and dreaming from resource books and the internet than actually doing the projects. I would like to share a listing of my small garden library reference books, magazines, movies and people that inspire me to do what I do. On top of the pile is an adorable, little journal that was given to me by my friend, Jennifer Hayslip of Eye Candy Creations.
