There are a couple of things I wanted you all to know before I take off for the weekend.
Thing #1: New Page!
I finally set up a page showing all of the books, audiobooks and resources I have available.
I’ve shared so much practical knowledge in my books and videos that you have no excuse to fail at your gardening this year. My prices are quite affordable.
Thing #2: Home Grown Food Summit Last Chance
Compost Everything: The Movie will air on Sunday. If you haven’t signed up for the Home Grown Food Summit yet, go do it now!
Thing #3: I Raised the Price on the 13 Tips Movie – Last Chance to Get it Cheap!
After the release of Compost Everything: The Movie, I’ve now raised the price on my info-packed film 13 Tips, Tricks and Lessons from Homesteading an Acre. It was a ridiculously low $4.99 for the download considering how much work went into it, so now it’s at $9.99.
Since I didn’t give anyone a warning, I’m offering a “half-off” discount for this next week, then it will be at $9.99 from here on out.
You need to click here to get it at the discounted price, though.
That offer will expire next week.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.
May God bless you and keep you. If you’re not in a good church yet, I urge you to go find one on Sunday. You only go around once.
Now get outside and garden!

I really loved your compost video for the Home Grown Food Summit. If I may trouble you with one question: We have pet guinea pigs whose bedding is aspen shavings. I’d like to use the “Melon Pit” strategy when I plant tomatoes this year. The area of concern is that the wood shavings and timothy hay would absorb nitrogen in the decomposition process. OR, is there enough nitrogen / ammonia in their waste to counteract this? I know it seems like a small issue, but we’re talking tomatoes here!
Usually, we compost the bedding in the tumbler or in our raised beds in late fall and winter.
Thanks, Emily. It’s hard to say exactly; however, I’d do it, then if I see any slowness of growth, I’d throw on a little more nitrogen in one form or another around the tomatoes. It’s going to improve the soil either way.
