This is an interesting online book about agriculture (Part IV).  It was written in 1809 and has some interesting sections that sound a bit like permaculture. Just for your reading enjoyment!

older books have some great tricks.This was all before tractors,rototillers,and greenhouse so people actually had to find tricks that didnt involve industrial technologies.

Thanks for that, I'll have to give it a read.  Much of the relatively old knowledge is really quite relevant if you want to avoid the chemicals and industrial stuff.

I also treasure old books and old ways.     I found the way native Americans gardened amazing for storage of food.

I clicked on the link, and it appears on my phone in type too small for me to read.  I tried tapping to zoom, spreading my fingers to zoom, nada on both techniques.  Does anyone have any other suggestions to enlarge the size?  Thanks for any help!
