1. Alternative Energy.

I did buy one of Steve Harris's books, Biogas: Volumes 1 and 2.  Fast easy read.  Just waiting the ability to get some supplies so I can ask the neighbors if I can clean their horse yard, lol. 

2.  Animal Husbandy

I've ordered 35 chickens, 10 layers and 25 cornish X's to be mailed to me by the end of the month.

5. Sprouting.

I tried my hand at sprouting early last summer and found it time consuming, so I started to build an automated unit.  Its small enough to fit in any garage, and is stack-able.  I had the unit running in an non-insulated detached garage with a small heat lamp, but eventually the water did freeze and my pump broke.  I just need to fix it and continue on.

7.  Writing

I started a blog, http://growingourskills.blogspot.com/ (http://growingourskills.blogspot.com/)

8.  Gardening

I have been looking into biochar and just added it to my list.  I should be making a small unit this week.

Any additional work on the sprouting?  We are considering some for our chickens.  I think Jack did a video with three sets of buckets, but I couldn't find it this morning.

Thanks!
