Holy crap.  I just might be buying a kiln.  Is this really happening?

For the longest time I’ve been talking about how I need a kiln to make my business actually profitable.  My in-laws kind of shrugged it off as something for the future, maybe after I get a real job and make a bit more money.  Their attitude was that, for now, renting someone else’s kiln seemed to be working.

Then I happened to mention to them the other day how much I spent last year (after doing my taxes) to rent a kiln… it was almost the price of a new kiln.  To my amazement,  as soon as I gave them the numbers,  they told me to buy my own kiln.

Not that I need their permission,  but my husband really respects their financial advice.  As soon as they said that he was also on board 100% (where before I think he was a hesitant 80% to spend that amount of money).

So a shopping I will go (good old line of credit is going to get a workout).

Congrats! Are you looking for a used kiln or new?

Hugelkultur is a funny-sounding German word — which roughly translates to “mound culture” — for a gardening and farming technique with some serious devotees. It’s all the rage with permaculture enthusiasts who have been busy “planting” the technique in the minds of gardeners through online forums.
Hugelkultur has been around for centuries and in use in Eastern Europe and Germany. While hard to spell, hugelkultur is simple to understand and implement.
