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.

As a card carrying certified chocoholic I feel your loss !
5 pounds ahhh I could cry!  Please don't say it was the rain forest chocolate ....

I'm bad but I would have to find at least some to eat... I mean really how bad could rabies be compared to high quality dark chocolate?

In all seriousness, I don't "think" dried saliva would carry a disease ... bite marks I would dispose of. But untouched looking pieces??? I couldn't help myself!

siliva can carry desieses like rabies. When it is dry it should not be active but I found one sourse that said they would still advise getting treatment if someone had been in contact with salivaeven when dried.   And eating it could give you rabies. So why rick eatting it?   Even if it's not rabies other things can be in saliva  Yes most things  die when it has dried up, and been exposed to air and sunlight   I love chocolate too but why risk getting some desiese.  No Thank you.

I think some are confusing rocket stoves with rocket mass heaters. They are two different things.  Yes there are some similarities but the purpose and function are different.

This sounds like a book I would love to have!  I am so happy when someone takes the time to put a book together of natural medicines or wild foods that most of us no nohting about anymore. We have lost so much knowledge of the world around us in the last decades. I am glad there are still a good many out there that know about these things still and are willing to share their knowledge.  I know a little but am always trying to learn more about the natural world around me.  MUCH of the medical field now is not about healing but abou profit only.  Not that doctors or pharmesutical companies shouldn't be paid for their work and/or product  but it should be reasonalble.  And too many meds are pushed out before they are properly tested.  I wouldlike to be able to control some of my own healing treatments. And what better way then what nature has provided.

I ideal place would be to live in a wofati home with a greenhouse.   Would that be possible?    Could they be done together?    I always liked that the earthships had a sorta greenhouse in the front of them I just dont want a home made from tires. Just can't see how there would not be some off gassing from them.   But do like many of there aspects.  Like rain catchment, grey and black water systems, cooling pipes unground to cool the home and/or geenhouse.    
OF course this is all a dream as I have not the land or funds to do any of it at present.  I would just like to know if it is possible to do both together or would they need to be separate?
Will all this be addressed in the movie?  I will support it anyway but just wondering.
