Paul, I'm in the same "flavor family" of crazy - with some twisted twists and turney turns, plus I'm female and that (for some, mind you, but not all) totally explains my "flavor of crazy". I echo David Livingston, "Your home, your rules. Simple really." Respect for the 'rules of the house' are just that, respect. Truly one of the most basic concepts we humans have devised. I personally don't feel you need to explain yourself/your reason for ANY house rules to any adult person who wishes to avail themselves of your totally mind-numbingly awesome setup there at YOUR Lab, whether it be visiting, contributing, workshopping, picking their nose, whatever. WE'RE ALL WEIRDOS IN SOME WAY OR ANOTHER. Let those peeps who don't get it or simply choose not to get it, go somewhere else to obtain awesome knowledge and be part of something magical. After all, it clearly states in all the disclaimers and the master rule book that it's a dictatorship.

Welcome Rick! Your book is a wealth of information for us all and for me, well, it's very timely to say the least. I have a perfect location and for months have been looking for designs, scouring books, journals and the inner-web for just the right mix of information and instruction to do exactly this on my south facing hillside. So pleased to learn from you and look forward to your podcast w/Paul.

I am in 7a and have also been eating fresh/wild for quite a few weeks (eating all winter from unheated covered raised beds); violets, field garlic, chickweed, dandelion, clover, day lilies, hostas, sorrel, etc. . . . . the 8 raised 4x12 beds under hoops/1 layer of agrifab all winter; very protected placement - flanked between two outbuildings east & west and a very old well established grape vine on the north side a wind break. All beds were planted with cold hardy crops in Sept, most are now bolting or already blooming/going to seed as we've had a few 70F+ days already. Apple, plum, apricot, mulberry & peach trees leafed & bloomed - fig trees got burnt again by late frost, so will be late coming out.
