YAY!! Another week over, and a weekend just begun. ☮

Another week over, and a weekend just begun. ☮

Sunset over the lake at Peregrine Park.


Well, Friday evening is always a very pleasurable time.
No work, no pressing emails to answer, no packing ... basically translated to FREE TIME!!
Yippee! 😛

Sunsets on our property, Peregrine Park, are mostly wondrous! Queensland certainly knows how to dish up some of the most beautiful, without a doubt. Who can resist the pleasure of looking out over the lake (well, it's our dam really, but it's as picturesque as a lake 😉), relaxing into a comfortable chair, knowing there are a couple of restful days in store ahead?

We've decided that we will use Fridays as a time to introduce some of our wonderful Library Collection.

Our range consists of around 50 different titles to date, but like any book lover, we are always on the lookout for any new and tempting titles. 😁


Self Sufficient Lifestyles are becoming much more popular these days.

Self Sufficient Lifestyle at Peregrine Park.

Our family has craved this way of living for many years, and we are so blessed and privileged to be able to put this dream into reality, by living and working from our rural property.  Mind you --- keeping a thriving veggie garden is one of the hardest tasks in a hectic working existence ... but, if at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again - that's our motto. 😉

Self Sufficient Lifestyle at Peregrine Park.


Self Sufficiency has always been a very enjoyable topic, but with the influx of people now spending a lot more time at home, many are yearning to get into growing their own food, and living in a much more sustainable way. That is, of course, excellent news!

Self Sufficiency, Sustainability, Homesteading, Vegetable Gardening and more, are some of the topics we personally enjoy the most - hence offering books in these fields.
Take a browse through our Books Collection - we're certain you will hanker after these titles, and won't be able to wait to start living more as life should be ... away from the fast-paced, fast-food, rat-race life of the city.

Naturally we understand that not everybody is able to live on acreage, so the book we have chosen today is one that will suit EVERYONE .. no matter where they live, and on what size piece of land!

The Modern Homestead Garden: Growing Self-sufficiency in Any Size Backyard

Paperback: 160 pages
Author: Gary Pilarchik

The Modern Homestead Garden: Growing Self-sufficiency in Any Size Backyard

Filled with easy-to-employ ideas and lessons for improving your food self-sufficiency no matter how much land you have, The Modern Homestead Garden focuses on planting, growing, harvesting, and preserving food.

If concerns about the environment and the health and wellness of yourself and your family leave you longing to make a change, start growing and preserving your own organic foods. With the guidance found in The Modern Homestead Garden, you'll discover how little land and effort it takes to start growing healthy, nutritious food.

Modern homesteading is a lifestyle focused on living lightly on the land and increasing self-sufficiency. It doesn't matter whether "home" is 50 acres in the country, a suburban corner lot, or an apartment in the city; all you need is a desire to reduce your footprint on the earth and live a more sustainable life. To be a modern homesteader, you don't have to live off-grid and you don't have to give up contemporary conveniences. For most modern homesteaders, it all starts with making the conscious decision to reduce your reliance on the commercial food supply chain.
