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!

I didn't know where to put this but it is about raising plants.
We build a nursery bed out of old roofing sheets. Simply a post in each corner the whole sheets screwed on. Because the sheets were long we whacked to starposts in to stabilize the whole thing (the bed is 3 m long and 1.5m wide). We had a huge compost pile laying around which didn't do a thing because it was so dry we filled it with the compost stomping a bit on it and water everything in. Then we put a layer of bad soil and a layer of good soil on the top.
I really like this because I hated these styropor flats or even worse pots. It is very space saving and I can raise a lot of plants in a small space and I don't have to bed down all the time. I will build a second one.
Hey cool! They got a blimp! But I have a tiny ad:
