"Pardon me sir...may I have permission to express myself freely?"
So a quick recap of day 2. This was the day we finally took apart the monster
brush pile. The bigger branches will be chipped for mulch later, while
we burned many of the small stuff and spread the ashes around.
All my buddies got poison ivy, but luckily for me I seem to be immune.
I was out there 11-12 hours a day, so Im sure if they got it, I would have too.
Ive never had poison ivy before, so I doubt being raw has anything to do with it.
It would be really interesting if it did though.
Here is the video from day two.
AND...Dawn found some great tickets to LA this weekend,
so we are doing a 4 day trip to visit her family and try as many
raw restaurants as we can. What is on the list?
We are going to Leaf, Juliano's, Euphoria, 118 Degrees,
AU LAC!!!!, Cru in Silver Lake, and um...Au Lac again? Haha...
There is also Terra Bella Cafe and Good Mood Food...
we'll see if there's enough time for them too.
Id also like to visit Erewhon too...never been there and have heard its great.
I doubt I'll have much access to email over the weekend, so if I dont reply to
emails right away, I will soon afterwards.
Ive been waiting so long to get back to LA...finally tomorrow.
Looks like the weather is going to be less than perfect, but I dont mind.
As for questions about heating the yurt...
I plan to use a wood stove. Some friends have suggested corn,
but I dont want to be reliant on people to have to grow corn so I can stay
warm in the winter. If you have enough property (2 acres is PLENTY)
there will always be enough downed wood to burn throughout the year
without ever having to cut down one live tree.
And the yurt is small enough and shaped perfectly to keep the heat in.
You can opt for really good insulation that will keep you toasty throughout
the entire Minnesota winter. (So I've been told...)
Ah yes...here is the link to my Raw Spirit page too...
See you there in September hopefully.
Have a great weekend everyone!
If you get a rebate check in the mail soon...go buy fruit trees!
No better investment for a fruit aficionado.
One year of fruit harvested is likely 4 times the cost of the tree...
so its a solid investment all around. Think about it!
Check your local nurseries first, and then check online. Trust me!
