Richard,

You are now qualified to receive one huckleberry pie (us only) and one $100 amazon.com gift card (not amazon.uk etc.).

Please send me email (paul at richsoil.com) with your snail mail address for the pie and your preferred email address for the amazon card.

I'm not sure, but I think there is one more amazon gift certificate available. So far I have given $100 amazon gift certificates to:

Burra
Lorenzo
Miles
Michael
Richard

I said I would give out six. So there is one more.

I guess it is a race between you and amber to get that email to me ...

Absolutely! A huge thank you for offering the book review bounty. Thanks to this, my kids can have a much more festive Christmas than I had expected to be able to give them. I'm so glad I was able to participate. You rock Paul.

Keep in mind that that pie is just the second best pie you can buy. But the other place is closed for the winter.

I would like to do "Eating on the Wild Side" if you could send me the template.

Also, I doubt that the last post on this thread was made seven months ago. Forum glitch?

I've got reviews in for Restoration Agriculture, Dairy Farming: The Beautiful Way, and 50$ and Up Underground House Book..... more to come!

Ok, I've got more now so I thought I would add them in here while I still can: Chicken tractor the permaculture guide to happy hens and healthy soil, Earth Sheltered Greenhouse Book, Permaculture Student 1, Nourishing Traditions, Sepp Holzer's Permaculture, Wild Fermentation, and The Permaculture Design Manual.

Oh yah, and more to come!!! (just need to finish reading a couple of the books I haven't gotten to yet)

Should've done these reviews a long time ago...oh well.

Can we add "Eco-Farm, An Acres U.S.A. Primer: The definitive guide to managing farm and ranch soil fertility, crops, fertilizers, weeds and insects while avoiding dangerous chemicals by Charles Walters" to the list?

Is there already a thread for that book? If not, please feel free to create one. If you feel up to doing a book summary, the first post would ideally be a summary. If not, can you make a placeholder post, saying something like 'book summary goes here - can a moderator create one for me?' or something like that. Then your review, and then maybe hit the report button to remind us to add it to the review grid.

The Christmas tree was waiting for these books arrival from Amazon. The books in large part were purchased thanks to Paul's generosity and the voucher from permies.com. The choice of books reflects my plans for 2016 I will post their reviews as well. Thanks Paul, thanks permies.com. Happy New Year!

these are the books I added to the permies gift. The one on french intensive gardening is one of my secret passions on studying historical gardening techniques. The rest is building my knowledge while startig to set up my farm!
