I think the fleece also keeps temperature a bit higher and acts as a buffer, also allows moisture to pass through, I don't think there is a risk of drying out since the bed is quite deep. also there is less risk of overheating as there is air flowing through the fleece.

I think what I'll do is try it, and experiment, doing a few things both the fleece method and the plastic container method and see which works best.

I also have glass I can put over the bed, but the problem with the glass is that it breaks quite easily, lost one pane already, and also, I would really have to keep an eye on the bed regularly in case of overheating, also we get quite strong winds here, and glass is much more likely to blow off, unless I put rocks on, which then makes it cumbersome to open and close each time.

I have two raised beds empty at the moment.  Several years ago I did winter sowing and it worked good, but I have trouble getting all the plastic containers here.

I am thinking that the principle  to sow in winter is in order to grow healthy plants, let them be stratisfied, without disruption from animals or wind.

What would be the problem with covering my beds with some arched mesh, covered with garden fleece?  the moisture would still come through, the seeds would still get light but not be disturbed by the elements? Also it would be easier, just sow in rows and mark each row with marker, not all kinds of different containers, duct tape, etc. etc.

Anyone think of a reason this would not be as good as plastic milk bottles, etc/?  I'm in Bulgaria, no plastic milk bottles and most plastic containers a bit too limp here.

would really appreciate feedback, would start sowing towards middle of January.

I agree that most altcoins have no intrinsic value yet, their utility apps haven't been developed or do not perform the desired function. So most of them will be worthless...just like in the .com bubble, where most web based firms dissapeared.
Some applications, some blockchain uses will become widespread. Those apps, like for instance dtube on steamit using ipfs, try to become ad free, censor free you tube replacements that also reward their content creators.....but these daps have to become more user friendly, and that is difficult, especially as it's only a couple of developers working on them, and youtube has a plethora.
As a permaculture currency I would envisage a kind of lets system where the local would be permies, so a permaculture exchange trading system...pets...
It could be used in lieu of the apples...create a market, digital and real world, for services, seed exchanges, courses....
We are at very early stages of these developments, payments in cryptocurrency are becoming fast and almost fee less, like cointext that uses sms texting from any phone without any intermediary...
As for the arguments made that if there is no electricity, crypto does not exist anymore...it would be necessary for that to happen that the whole earth be without electricity, and I think we'd have other worries by that time.
Also, about the loss of cryptos, there is a lot of redundancy you can put into safeguarding your coins...you just have to have the discipline to do it...
I think we would be stacking functions if we could add these new technologies...

I posted part of this reply on the kickstarter american perma tour, then i found that Willi had started a thread about crypto-currency here...
Blockchain and crypto could help the whole empire's funding...very much in line with plotting for world domination....create a permie's token ( the"PAUL" Permaculture Account Unit Ledger)...launch a initial coin offering on one of the ethereum like platforms. Use the coin for rewards for good comments, up voting and so on....like steam does it...and much more.

There are youtube videos from Ivan on Tech that show how to create a coin, or a ICO in 15 minutes...of course, working out the why's and how's would ask major brainpower. But we could start here...
I know that ethically, there are drawbacks like the amount of energy these algorithm based technologies use. Ethereum platforms and other like Eos, Stellar Lumens and other arrivals seem to adres somewhat the energy problem. But I am confident that energy won't be a real issue in the future with solar and battery power becoming better and decentralized...and trough these soon to be cheap energies, desalinization and transport of fresh water will open the world to greening the world...but it might make permaculture not a priority anymore till we hit 100 billion humans....
I am no tecky, but I guess Paul has a pool of savy people on java ranch that could maybe implement such a cryptocurrency, Josiah is also competent in software....Jack Spirko, Vin Armani...all extraordinary people who are into both crypto and permaculture could maybe spare some time (wouldn't know where, i couldn't do a tenth of there output...) to just brainstorm and use the power of the permies empire with theirs to accelerate these topics that are so needed.

Maybe kickstartering has had it's run....time to do something else...with maybe a much bigger scope, involving the whole empire's funding...very much in line with plotting for world domination....create a permie's token ( the"PAUL" Permaculture Account Unit Ledger)...launch a initial coin offering on one of the ethereum like platforms. Use the coin for rewards for good comments, upvoting and so on....like steam does it...and much more.

That is my 2 satoshi worth of contribution...

Hello Paul,

HD downloads going well, but I can't seem to find tiny downloads anymore...so I can store and view on my mobile device as well...

Permanent thanks,

Thanks.
