I just started reading it, he is a captive writer along with having a wonderfully useful subject matter.

Just a bump on this! Out of curiosity I looked for it on Amazon Prime, they wanted $22.00 for it used and still no kindle but there is only one. I would love to get it on Kindle but still, the price here is a lot better!

This is what I want Jack! I live outside of town on acreage, plenty of room for all the elderberry I can fit in! I wouldn't mind having a lot of different ways to use the fruit though. I suppose I'd better start out with a lot of netting so that at least I can get one good crop! How do you prepare your elixer?

Hi John! I'm with Sigrid Blom, cant wait to see what you've written as I have just acquired a mess of elderberry cuttings from a local gal here.

Wow Treavor! 100 years seems a bit overboard when you consider that even human excrement can nourish the soil. Unless of course chemicals are the issue. The powers that be should be ashamed of themselves...

Travis,

Yes I am hoping that my and my neighbors stream will put a halt to anything they plan but also wonder how far away from a stream/creek are they allowed to put in that sort of system.
I envision myself being surrounded by huge factories or neighborhoods where the houses are 20 feet apart from each other because they were able to install the sewer system far enough away and then the buildings put closer to my land. One of my neighbors has hundreds of acres and if he wants to sell that could very well happen I suppose.

My dream of being away from the city, out in the country may be slowly nibbled away as they continue to build and build. I'm too old to sell and change after putting so much into this property with the thought of having my own wonderful wide open space to finish out my life on and then pass it on to my son who has put a lot of his own blood sweat and tears into it as well.

Maybe I am panicking all for nothing, who knows...

With this thread, I have gotten some good ideas and will keep my ear to the ground on this issue so that I can, hopefully, stem the tide if it starts to go south.

Christo, if the springs are, indeed, connected to my well water then yes I get all my water from there but I have no idea if they are connected.

Christo, I thought once I owned the land with the creek I owned the water that flows from the springs and along the creek? Is there something more I need to do to make sure its mine?
