Review: Building A Better World In Your Backyard

Sitting here by my window, with over ten inches of snow on the ground, is a great time to review this Permaculture book by Paul Wheaton and Shawn Klassen-Koop. I’ve been working on farms and orchards since the 1980’s, but this book is an inspiration to step up my game. Paul Wheaton is a bear […]

When The Trucks Stop Running

When The Trucks Stop Running

Here’s something to think about; What the hell are you going to do if there is a major disruption in our supply line? For the last thirty years I have lived on farms, and with the use of the internet and online shopping, nothing is out of reach anymore. Need work boots? No problem. Same […]

The Easy Way to Grow Potatoes

The Easy Way to Grow Potatoes

I’ve been involved in conventional and organic farming for years, both in Oregon and Washington State. Currently, we have building projects (including our house) that take priority, so serious farming is on hold for now. In the mean time, we still have a small garden for salad greens, squash and other compact crops. Lately, I’ve […]

  • Monkey Business: Two Very Different Bigfoot Books
    In these crazy times, I have had a need to take a break from political research. What I found is as informative and interesting as it is scary. That is, reading up on Bigfoot-Sasquatch, which probably for the same reason I found, has hit an all-time high public interest cycle. Bigfooters, or “Squatchers”, as they […]
  • Review: “How Fascism Works” By Jason Stanley
    I really appreciate when an author can boil complex ideas down to easily understandable concepts. “How Fascism Works – The Politics of Us and Them” by Professor Jason Stanley is just such a book. Stanley, a Yale professor has produced an examination of fascism that is reflected in the current state of American affairs. Fascism […]
  • Review: “Devolution” By Max Brooks
    People who read this blog have probably noted a change in the material I have reviewed lately. Recent subjects include: permaculture, radicalism in the 1970’s, pre-history revisionism, and yes, Bigfoot. The fact is, I am in a political burn-out mode and needed some breathing room with off-beat subject matter. Rarely do I read fiction, but […]

  • Review: The Hidden History Of The Human Race
    As the plague season rolls on, my reading has (as a matter of sanity) drifted from hard-core political filth to more esoteric subjects. They have been quite a welcome distraction. For instance, I recently reviewed “Daydream Sunset” by Ron Jacobs, about counterculture in the 1970’s. (All reviews can be found at https://www.covertbookreport.com/ ) Then we […]
