Michael Judd says that if permies.com brings in $5000 to his kickstarter, then permies.com can decorate an entire page in his new book! I'm not sure what we would put there just yet, but the opportunities for comedy are endless!
So..Everybody in the south that gardens grows green beans...sorta like keeping bacon grease..it is a rule...but when you get fifty or so bags of green beans put up..like the first day of picking, and you drown your neighbors in green beans until they are ready to shoot you on sght..whaddaya do? WEll..it is too stinking humid to pull hte vines and hang them..they just get moldy..not so good...and I have not gotten around to building one of htose super wham-o-dyne downdraft dehydrators, nor a rocket mass stove powered green house...soo..I took a big sheet of heavy poly...pulled all the bean plants, and laid them out in a windrow on the poly...cut a 55 gallon plastic barrel into two big open napkin rings to hold open the ends..and rolled the whole mess up like a burrito..then stuck a fan in the end..been getting 100-110 degrees of heat out the exhaust end all day...and the whole mess can be folded up and stacked in the corner of a shed until the buckwheat comes off in october, or I get a batch of hay about to get rained on..or the corn needs drying because I want to get in a cover crop instead of waiting for it to field dry...etc etc etc...seems to work, and dirt cheap...
