Over at his new Planet Whizbang Giveaways site, Herrick Kimball is giving away two of my books – click here to get in on the action.
Though we’ve never met in person, I have a lot of respect for Herrick, his business and his philosophy of Christian agrarianism. His main site, The Deliberate Agrarian, has inspired more than one post here.
I’m also a big fan of his Planet Whizbang Idea Book for Gardeners:
Herrick Kimball is the guy I want to be when I grow up. I just turned 37 and he’s like 100 years ahead of me already, so I have some catching up to do.
By the way, I’m giving away a new booklet to anyone who signs up for my newsletter. It contains two somewhat modified chapters of my popular book Compost Everything and has all you need to know in order to stretch your compost a lot further than you think.
Update on the “30 Videos in 30 Days” Challenge
It’s going great so far and I’ve been seeing a nice uptick in “likes” and subscriptions. Yesterday I created a dedicated playlist in order so you can see them all. Be sure to watch the videos to their endings, as I’m hiding bits and pieces after the credits.
It’s time to Make The Conclusion of YouTube Videos Great Again!
Later this week Rachel demonstrates how to render your own beef tallow easily and I’m going to show how to germinate peach and other stone fruit pits in the next episode of Totally Crazy Easy Gardening coming up tomorrow.
Producing all these videos and keeping the quality high has been an excellent challenge and I’m glad Justin Rhodes told me to just go for it. I don’t think I can keep it up after 30 days, but I’m definitely upping the overall quality of my channel. With so many subscribers signing up since the beginning of the year, it’s time to give my audience my best rather than mostly using the channel as a place to post quick videos of cool things I find.
Thanks for letting my readers know about the Planet Whizbang Giveaway of your gardening books. The contest ends tomorrow, and there will be three winners.
You’re very kind in your comments about me. For the record, I am 21 years older than you. It is my opinion that you have far more talent and ambition than I did when I was 37 years old. And, in fact, you have more artistic talent, technical skills, and ambition than I do now. You’re also humorous in a zany way that I am not (at least not in public), and I find that endearing.
All of which is to say that I’m inspired by you and all that you’re doing with this blog, your books, and your YouTube videos. I know how much work goes into these things behind the scenes. Here’s wishing you the very best for years too come!
Hmmm. I meant to say YOUR readers.
Thanks for letting your readers know….
You bet. Thank you for everything.
I will check out his website today, and thanks for the dedicated playlist, I somehow lost a day or two of videos. I will put that to use immediately, I hate to miss anything you put out!
You’re too kind, Curtiss – thanks, friend.
