    Awesome link Elkhound! Thanks

    I found a link years back to a few college archive sites that had a lot of old building designs and drawings for simple farm buildings from back turn of century thru depression era into maybe early WW2 that would show you how to build anything from the barn, chicken house, root cellar etc to the farmhouse itself. I'll dig some here, maybe it has some of the same.
    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you!

        Love the oldies but goodies publications!

        If anyone is drawn to the Sugar Beet Culture publication:

        ...and if you would like to try growing sugar beets to make your own sweetener, here is an excellent source of non-GMO sugar beet seeds:

        I have done business with them for years and can vouch for service and quality.

        ETA: The leaves are delicious when cooked, and the roots can be enjoyed cooked or raw, sliced into salads and whatnot.
