Ladies & Gentlemen we have take off on the Paw Paw Mini Manual adventure!! Fully funded at $14,000+ the Kickstarter campaign has been a big success. This is largely thanks to 83 Permies who kicked in a total of $2,668. That's pretty f#!kin' awesome and once again shows that this community has faith and support for each other.

Paul and Team Permie have been amazingly supportive, their hearts and spirits are solid and large.

I am wondering if we can set this thread up over in the fruit forum.. tweak it a bit and continue the sharing and learning about paw paws..?? I would love the interaction, questions, experience, etc. to help make the mini manual as diverse and useful as possible.

Again, thank you to all who kicked in.

Lori I just checked with Neal Peterson for recommendations and he simply reminded me that he has international paw paw resources listed on his site - Int Paw Paw Resouces

Would love to hear your feed back about what is available over there. I have a paw paw and peramculture thread started here - Paw Paws & Permaculture

P.s. Rebecca is right about the seeds needing to stay consistently moist

Alright Permies.. after some good 10 year rye last eve I came up with a challenge. As many of you know I am undertaking a new publication all about paw paws - from seed to table, and have a Kickstarter in its final days that the Permie community has supported enormously.

So, the challenge is.. I will research and write about paw paws, pigs and permies in the publication - if the permies.com community steps up and helps reach the last stretch goal of the campaign.

Paw Paw Mini Manual Kickstarter - Permies

I already have confirmation that pigs dig paw paws from Kate Spinillo of Ham Sweet Farm in Michigan who says "They readily eat fruit & seeds & all.. When I was managing a niche pork production farm in West Virginia a few years ago, if you wanted paw paws you had to get to them before the pigs and other wildlife did. They are some really hot commodities! Longterm we want to be finishing our hogs on mast of all kinds, but of course paw paws are top of the list of good stuff to have around."

I have started another thread as a conversation point for paw paws, pigs, and permacutlure over in the Permaculture forum - Paw Paws, Pigs & Permies

Aside from the kickstarter I would like to make this thread a conversation point for paw paws, pigs, and permacutlure. And I imagine since we are talking pigs we will have to come up with something with hugelkultur... something swine and Germanic..

We are almost there!

With all the snow falling here at the homestead I am busy strumming up some last minute support for the campaign's stretch goal for first printing. 4 days and $1,600 to go - that's $400 a day - which I know can happen.. with a little help. If you have shared the campaign already - thank you - please do again as repeating has a multiplying effect and lets friends know you are truly in support of this venture, and if you have not please consider doing so with a personal note to your community. This is how a paw paw revolution is born!

See you in 4 days..
