Bummer. I was hoping for a better review on this. Now I think I'll hunt elsewhere for a good grinding mill. Thanks to all who posted their experiences.

Exciting indeed. I'm already thinking about doing something like this on part of my  ( unused ) pasture . Looking at marking off an acre, starting with a soil sample, breaking up ground with a broadfork, planting whatever y'all say are the control plants. Buying a tripod and camera, the list goes on and on... Lots of interest in this thread.

I'm not opposed to harvesting my animals for eatin time. However, y'all have added enough in there that should please any type of crowd.
I figured there would be some regular reading in there but its mostly a list of tasks to complete. The explanations must have been mostly at the first chapter.
The sneak peek lets me know what type of book it is. And really gets me back in the game after a stall out on my part. All in all... I like what I see.
Really like that cargo bike. What's the story on that beauty?

Stumpy Nubbs woodworking journal is just now starting to become available. He has many good videos on using power tools.

Wood by Wright has lots of videos on only using hand tools. Incredible videos both.

Good luck

Do we get any points for the first few badge bits in Sand or only the last few?
Sharpen a knife
Sharpen a hatchet
Sharpen a chainsaw chain
Sharpen clean and oil a shovel
Clean a shop
Make a wedge style handle
All these have no points? Am I missing something?

Looking forward to reading the book for sure. Ive been asked plenty of times where to get elderberry plants or the berries themselves. Now there is a new resource out, I'll start by getting the book ( hopefully winning it ) and start some jam or something. That is probably the best way for me to make it potent and shelf stable. And it tastes great that way !
Welcome to the forum !!!

Have you tried to sell online? Maybe an Etsy shop? Or a local farmers market. If you don't have one, think about starting one. Once they are up and going they just take regular maintenance to keep em going. Just some idears.

Also have 5 wooden biplanes left. Been selling the fool out of those lately.
They go for $25 each

When they are gone, they are gone... Until I can make some more - which will be after the holidays.
I love to see all the homemade items on the forum! Great to have a bit of a side hustle ain't it?
