Thanks for sharing, It is beautiful!!  I have never sheared a sheep but i did get some raw wool I had to clean and scour. Then spun it and started some mittens. They are still in my to get to sometime bag, along with a few other things :-)   In the summer I like to switch t cotton or  linen  to work with.
I keep going back and looking at all the amazing things we get with this kickstarter. It's so much and so great. I don't understand why everyone at permies did not al least get on the 1 dollars deal. And so glad I uped mine to the 65 dollar level. The stretch goals are more than worth it.   Can't wait to start getting all these goodies and the book.  Just an incredible job everyone!!!

I had not checked kickstarter in  a couple of days .. I think it was around 62000 the last time.  It was a very nice suprise to see it all the way up to 67,700 !!! Very cool.   Congrats on this doing so well.

Yes, I too had to up mine, just too many goodies to pass up.  And the value of the stretch goals is far more than the 40 dollars I went up.  Heck the value of the early bird goodies  would be worth it.  And I just looked it is already up to 43,932 so more stretch goals are on the way.

I forgot to check kickstarter when this went live, but thankfully I remembered that it would start on Thursday so I did at least get my pledge in.  I always love the kickstarters you have!!! Not only do you get the kickstarter item but the perks  go above and beyond!  They are more then generous, even at the very lowest pledge amount.  Thank you for all you do, not only with kickstarters but all that is on Permies.  I tell everyone about it. Permies is one of the best, if not "the" best site out there for information on Permiculature and trying to live a better life for ourselves and to help make things better for all of us.   Thanks again  to everyone that helped with this!! You are all awesome!!!

I try and take the bargans you can get on root veggies and on chicken and turkeys. Turkerkeys in November become very inexpensive to get . I try and get two or threee extra ones and can all the meat and make broth yo can as well i buy  the organic  or all naturall raised.  while these do cost more, you can stil be a good deal on them now.  I can make enough to have chicken or turkey for a year.  And have enough brotth tht I rarely have to buy it and I know what goes into it . so This is something I enjoy doiing,  I don't put sage  in the bird i will can .. it can give them and off flavor after pressure canning. So I just wait and put it in when  I am  making something from the canned chicken/turkey. i have found this works just as well.   I have not done as well in keepting the end of veggies this year. so will have to just get some to had in to have enough.

pickle corn.... We use to make it in a very large crock and I loved it as a kid, but just had not made any in years.  I had a couple of ears of corn I was given and for some reason it made me think of the pickeled ones. Snice I only had the two ears I cut the corn off the cob and just did put it in a pint  jar along with the brine and a few days later  I am brought back to my childhood and the wonderful sour  crisp taste of the pickled corn.

Love this idea!!!  Is there a link we can use to put on Facebook or other sites to let people know abou this?   And thanks for offering so much at even the 1 dollar level.  Even if someone didn't want the greenhouse moive, That is a prize in itself.   I think this is one of the best greenhouse Ideas I have seen, I just want it connected to or a part of a Wofati house.  
Sorry I should have read the whole email and then I would have know .... so disreqard my question about a link.
