"I love me Sissoo, but it is away from any building,and also shades our chicken coop. Which was part of the reason it was placed there. Just saying. There are no bad trees just bad placement.. We have a 18 year old carob tree about 30ft high. That…"

finally built it

I finally built my bike powered grain mill. I am very excited about not having to do at least 12 cups a week of flour via hand crank. If anything it makes you appreciate your food more.

Conserving and cutting back on waste and trying to make a difference in this world has been very fulfilling.… Continue

Hey sorry about not getting in touch with you about your shade project.
Are you still interested?
Describe to me in an email
what size and what you have near to attach to.
Also include any objects/steel/cable/hardware that you think can help.
