Making It is written by the same people who brought us The Urban Homestead. This book picks up where The Urban Homestead left off. Projects are divided into five sections. The first four sections involves things that one uses or does daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonally. The fifth section is devoted to planting tips, composting, and beekeeping.
Each project in Making It lists the approximate preparation time and a list of ingredients. The instructions are well-written and easy to follow. A list of resources and an index is included.
