I got a message this morning of the passing of David B South Sr., the person behind the foam and concrete dome.

How would a solar storage greenhouse benefit me here in Central Oklahoma with a fairly long growing season already?

This seems like a weird question, but how small can you make a rocket mass heater that functions like it is supposed to? Has anyone tired this?

Thinking of burying the heat chamber below the pizza stone bottom of, and exhaust piping in the walls of, a beehive oven.

Is it OK to use almost exclusively Cedar trees for your hugelkultur?  I have 40 acres here in Oklahoma and a LOT of cedar that needs to be removed.

"Stay logged in to your permies email" ?!!! I can't keep the internet up for more than a few minutes out here and am paying >$100/mo for it.

Oof.

Just another frustrating part of being out in the 'wilds' of Oklahoma.

I have a bunch of ripe tomatoes that I want to save the seeds from (they were volunteer from the year before and taste wonderful.)  How do I go about saving them for next spring? Is there a set of conditions I need to meet - to wet/dry etc?

Welcome! I am always intrigued by different hand tools. This looks beefy and handy to have around. How is it on the hands? (I have extreme  arthritis in the hands from years of woodcarving.)

I am interested about the upkeep of goats as I need something to keep down the near impossible to mow banks of the dam.

The article misses one MAJOR use for DE - sealing your dam.  Any leak in the dam can be abated by applying DE to the source (water side) and waiting for the DE to hold the sediment that gets pulled through.

How, in a place like central Oklahoma*, do you handle such diverse weather conditions? (ie do I have to increase my grey water output during drought?)

*where we have years that are lush green (this year) and dead dry (like two years ago)
