I just dropped the price of
the permaculture playing cards
for a wee bit.

 

 

uses include:
- infecting brains with permaculture
- convincing folks that you are not crazy
- gift giving obligations
- stocking stuffer
- gambling distraction
- an hour or two of reading
- find the needle
- find the 26 hidden names

Does anyone know of a place in Southwest Missouri where I could go and just be able to try to use a scythe? I'd really like to give it a go a couple times before I just go out and buy one.

Hey Skip,
This is funny but you get your Poultry CSA share from me!  I've got a Marugg scythe that you'd be more than welcome to take for a test spin.  There's not much to cut right now besides some broomsedge, but that ought to at least give you an idea of the mechanics and whatnot.  I typically cut hay in early May, if you'd rather wait for that.

Totally awesome that you are here on Permies! OMG, I actually have met someone from here in person! I would love to do that. It's a bit too cold and rainy for me today and I know you must be busy with your family for the holiday or I'd ask to come over this weekend. I always have Sunday off of work if that works for you? 
 
We should throw him a surprise party. It will cheer him up. We can use this tiny ad:
