Wintering over chickens, due to cold weather here in PA the chickens get cooped up more than I like. I know you have the paddock system, how is this used (or not used) in winter. Self sufficient winter chickenfeed.
One topic/belief I've heard you repeatedly refer to is the difference in soil on the East & West side of the Cascades. It's come up a handful of times when I've talked to you or heard you speak. Most recently during the first Survival Podcast; you guesstimate a huegelkultur bed in Western WA might last 10-15 years, versus 20 or 30 or 50 years in Montana.
That's all great, I don't argue the point, but I don't have a full understanding of why you believe that. Regarding the huegel bed, I understand that the wood is more likely to rot quicker with excess moisture and lack of freezing temperatures.
Anyways, I'd love to hear the full, uncut and uncensored explanation for why you've come to this conclusion. Convince me Paul!
Ahhhh!!! Paul, no! Is there any way you can run PHP on your servers and do a self-hosted wordpress installation? Otherwise you're going to lose all ownership of all the link juice running to the wordpress.com site. Don't do it! It's not a long-term solution for SEO. Let me know if you need help with Wordpress, that's my specialty.
Paul, Bravo! Love the format. Talking over coffee, just great. You and Jocelyn work well together.
Audio was excellent. Production values were right there too. And the voice! What can I say except you should have done this sooner. Since this was your first, I can see these getting even better as time goes by.
Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us in a most entertaining way. Looking forward to more!

I'd like to learn more about practicing permaculture in designing a plot of 1/4 acre, or less. And, how to keep it attractive enough so your neighbors would want to ask how do this themselves, rather than tar and feather you and run you out on a rail.
My semi-rural suburban community consists of 250+ homes on small plots of land, and I believe there are others who live on similarly sized plots who would like some suggestions.
Paul, just listened to the first half of your first podcast. Glad you are doing it and thanks. I'd most like to hear 'what a guy who lives on a 1/4 acre suburban lot with a few years of gardeningexperience who just recently clued into organic methods should be focusing on'
I have updated the url's to the blog to make them a little better. The links above will still work, but if you link to the site or post the podcasts on any sites like Facebook etc, please use the links below:
