Hey permies,

Not to be a shameless self-promoter or anything (I don't want to borrow even a tiny fraction of Paul's thunder [if that's remotely possible] and get kicked out of Asgard!), but I posted a big "fruit trees from seed" piece a few days ago. This is a topic I've become passionate about, thanks to many discussions here and elsewhere, plus my reading of sepp holzer and his work (plus a good does of Fukuoka-san). Since I haven't seen a lot of info on it, I started doing my own experiments a few years ago and that's what I've shared in this link, along with lots of photos:


One side thing I would love to know from you guys: has anyone been able to score non-pasteurized almonds anywhere? All the ones I've found and tried have been dead as doornails thanks to new regulations. (Sadly... they're still being sold as "raw.") I'm not supposed to be able to pull almonds off in Florida, but I'm going to try... just because I can't help myself. Someone has to do it!

Also - anyone have luck germinating native persimmon seeds?
Do not threaten THIS beaver! Not even with this tiny ad:
Solar ovens, haybox cooker - What would you build to go with a rocket oven?
