The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Free ebook about quick hoops

Making a quick hoopI'm pushing to finish editing the paper version of Weekend Homesteader, so there's no lunchtime series this week.  However, I don't want you to go into withdrawal, so I'm giving away Weekend Homesteader: October today and tomorrow over on Amazon.  Just follow the link and you'll be able to download it completely free.

Despite the fact that the four exercises in Weekend Homesteader: October are geared toward the fall, they're actually quite timely in February.  I walk you through making quick hoops, which are perfect for preheating late winter soil so you can plant sooner.  And I also write about free biomass, storage vegetables, and living simply.

As always, if you don't want to mess with Kindle format, you can email me and I'll reply with a free pdf copy.  And please do tell any friends who might be interested!  I gave away 8,875 free copies of Weekend Homesteader: August a few weeks ago and would love to beat that record.

Hey, I don't have a kindle but would love to have your October edition of Weekend Homesteader. If you wouldn't mind sending me a PDF format that'd be great. Also if you have August still available I'd love that too. :) Thanks!

I can't keep up with the bounty being produced by our two 4'x8' quick hoops! I know this has been a strange winter, but I couldn't believe the difference the quick hoops made. I planted some of my starts outside of the quick hoop for comparision, and what a difference! Thanks. My kindle was messed up last time I tried to purchase weekend homesteader from you, but I WILL get it fixed, because I love the weekend homesteader!

Justus --- October and August should be in your inbox now.

Paul B. --- I know what you mean about the miracle of quick hoops. I was just out in the garden today, picking a mess of mustard greens for supper, and saw that our first batch of spring lettuce survived the recent 10 degree night! Looks like we'll have yet more leafy greens in a couple of weeks.

Hi Anna,
I just wanted to say thanks for your generous offer. I took you up on this and realized I needed to get the others I am missing as well. These are such great books and have everything a person needs to learn how to homestead. What a treat. I'll be sure to comment when I finish them up. :)

Thank you so much for trying them all! I hope they live up to your expectations. :-)

Hello Anna, I wonder if you would mind sending me a PDF of your Weekend Homesteader and if it is not too cheeky, the August edition as well, to I looked for your e-mail address both on your site and facebook page and couldn't find it. I am a new reader to your site, I am hoping to to start a farm in a couple of years and am trying to get as much experience as possible with veggies and animals before then. Your website is teaching me sooooo much. Thankyou.

Thanks for your kind words, Tracy! August and October should be in your inbox now.
