Just want to pipe in and say these threads are the best concise resources on the net I’ve found. Thankyou so much from New Zealand! We’re reading here too.

Even then you are well advised to purchase and use the several huge volumes of Microbiology identifier text books, none of which are under 75 dollars.

Thankyou so much for your fabulous posts. I devour them! There is so much practical clear advice in them for those of us beginning our journeys into this very important facet of food and planetary health.

I’m an ex microbiology technician in the food and pharma industries and have recently bought a good quality microscope for tea and soil analysis. I’m having trouble working out which textbooks would be best suited to this work as far as help with improving id goes. Do you have any suggestions or recommendations for us newbies?

I'd love to try and help, but what do you mean by "tweek to our own footprint size"?



Hi, ha ha, sorry, terminology probably lost in translation. I mean are there software programs  out there with plans that will adjust the size of the components based upon the size of our footprint. Rather than us having to draw it up in sketchup for example? We are still undecided about the precise size yet and we got to wondering if there is such a thing.

It’s not a going to be big - ever so slightly dug in (we had hoped to have it sunk a bit but the boys hit a schist seam and gave up). Probably max 7m by 7m. We have extremely hot dry summers and winters which while getting warmer generally get down to -5c for a week or so most years.

Kia Ora from New Zealand. Im a long time lurker first time poster here. Having finished our small house following permaculture design principles as much as possible, we are finally in a position to get a greenhouse going in a zone 9 area in New Zealand. I love the ideas I’m getting from this forum and the riffing off them we do ourselves. I’m interested to know if there are plans we could buy that we can easily tweak to our own footprint size? Any recommendations? Thanks in advance for your help!
