I use "pickle pipe" lids. They are cheaper than the one you listed. I've used them for over a year with great success. They are also available on Amazon!

I recently relocated from Chicago to the triad-region (Greensboro/Winston Salem) with my partner & our tiny house on wheels. We have been very happy here. We are about 3 hours from the ocean, and 3 hours from the mountains (Asheville). While we aren't on the coast, the drive is short enough to go to the ocean over the weekend. We have just started our search for land & have seen 2 acres for around $20-30k.

Hey! I'm a lady & I'd love to be your friend! We have lots of similar interests. I'm living in Greensboro NC. Shoot me a PM if you'd like to chat
Hey! So I make my ferments (kombucha & krauts etc) with well water that I run through my big berkey water filter system (charcoal based- look into it if you want! Great system for city water as well!) & have great results. My sister on the other hand uses city water without boiling/doing anything and also gets great results with her ferments. I think the ferments will be OKAY even with chlorine/etc in them.. I think it's a good/better/best situation where the best option is to use filtered water but it's still GOOD/awesome to ferment with any kind of water.

Just my two cents based on years of fermenting.

Hey rich,

I lived in Chicago up until this past March & worked with several farms through the food co-op I worked at. I am not aware of what they currently grow, but think they were growing some herbs. If nothing else they are very kind people who may be able to give you some other suggestions.. Montalbano farms, Radical Roots Farm, patchwork farm are the ones that come to mind.

Hope this helps!

Several months ago we began making "eco-bricks" out of our plastic waste. The idea is to take a water bottle/juice container etc. and shove it full of your plastic waste. It usually takes us 2-4 weeks to fill one "brick". We typically have plastic bags (from frozen fruit), containers from soy-milk (we cut them up into small pieces to make them fit in the bottle), stickers/labels from fruit etc. you can fit much more into a single bottle than you would imagine, using a stick to pack the trash in.

There are many things you can do with the finished bricks - people are building homes from them. We plan on creating a raised garden bed from ours once we have enough. Creating these bricks and living as close to zero-waste as possible has almost totally eliminated us sending anything to landfills now!

Here's a website with more info about eco-bricks :
