I live in Texas. Have a small urban garden. I have done farming on a small scale in NY as a child to young adult. Raised many animals and hunted to eat. I grow as many crops as my small rental will allow to feed my family.

New to permies here. I am a fiber artist and as such have lots of small pieces of yarn and thread. I am saving it in a bag to use in a future cob project to see if it is useful..Does anyone have any idea's on this? I know cob is sand, straw and clay. But would it benefit from the fibers in the yarn a bit? Straw is used for the same purpose I believe. Or at least something along those lines. I just did not want to throw away all those little pieces..just a thought to reuse something most throw away.

The giant Puffballs we had in NY where I was a kid were very good. Breaded in panko bread crumbs and fried with a bit of garlic. Make sure as everyone has said, they are white and firm. Look in the same place over and over they will be back.  Often we found them in fields after a rain or in the woods near leaks. Also very good if you get them small..at least to me. The largest I have ever seen was about basketball, plenty for a meal in a house of 3 people. I noticed them mostly in late summer or early fall in my area. Enjoy it and let us know what you think of it !

Has anyone tried this with Jackfruit? I had several from the wholefoods store here and Asian market. Saved the seeds and put them in nice soil. Watered a bit and left on my porch. Had tree's in about 3 weeks. Lemons did the same. Great fruit tree's if you live in a warmer area and have the time for the tree's to grow and mature to fruit.
