Almost finished with the seeding cloning area. i will finish tomorrow and hopefully paint, i also need to build seeding shelves for about 60 trays then mount the T5 lights. what i plan on doing is using the T5 light ballast that takes 4 bulbs so that i can use 1 bulb per seeding tray so that is 4 trays/lights per ballast. one 12 to 14 inch T5 will do the trick. I can say the greenhouse is so warm even in the early hours of the day so i suspect my seeding will be fine. if you look close you will see i even foamed the roof where the corrugated is screwed to the beam. doesn't even move with high wind. cool rain gutters will collect the run off into a tank for watering.

One an extremely sick subject the SICK ELITIST are hard at it again. those M>F>'s sprayed around 70 times today. what the F is it going to take for people to wake up to the damage these poisons are doing to "EVERY LIVING THING ON EARTH" ! Barium and Aluminum is highly TOXIC to everything yet they spray under the guise of global warming which is total BS ! in the very near future Earth will be a big toxic waste dump and trust me, NOTHING WILL SURVIVE. please people wake up to the death in our skies. either mobilize or die, it is your choice of fighting for your right to live harmoniously with mother nature or die a miserable cancer ridden death bilked by Corporations till you die.... are you mad as hell, well i am.
I really wish i had a way of shooting them down. Regards, Marathonman

This should say it all as to why i have been delayed on so many levels.
on a good note, the greenhouse is completed except for the trim painting. i will begin building the shelving for the 100 seeding trays i have coming. our regenerative farming techniques are looking very prosperous this year.

I actually finished the green house weeks ago but have been forgetting to post pics. i have near 90 trays seeded and sprouting of everything you can imagine on three, four shelf shelving that are all water sealed. i will post pics tomorrow, 24th of all i have done. i just finished piping in a 10,000 gallon tank in the garden off of the solar well. it will have a charge controller and a battery bank as we are moving to nights and drip irrigation in four quadrants. every quadrant will have 5 micron filtration as to not plug drip holes. 2,500 gallon green house tank will be delivered in a few days and we have just finished installing rain gutters on the green house for rain catchment along with an automatic misting system. fan installed will have temperature thermostat control for cross ventalation for heat control.

Here is the finished green house getting a new rain gutter catchment system with a 2,500 gal tank tomorrow. sad thing was trying to make it work with one corner dropped over four inches. will have to bring out the pop rivet gun and some sheet metal on this one. clear sheets on the roof help with the sun shine.
a good note the green house is doing well as most of the seedlings are sprouted in 70 plus degrees. will be installing automatic misting system in a few days.
Here is the new 10,000 gallon water tank for the garden.
and here is the finished 1 acre garden ready for this years crop.

Been vary busy on the farm as we just finished seeding 5 acre with 5 different grasses with the help of a fellow farmer. before it was done i broadcasted Crimson clover, medium red clover and japanese buckwheat as well as the second half of the garden.
the garden is split into two halves with plans to have a food forest to the right of both halves. we have 22 rows at 80 feet long with tones of organic material i have chipped up or chopped up. i built a hay chopper myself and saved over 2,600 bucks over a purchase of one. it will be used to cover the ground and in the compost bins.
in the greenhouse i have just over 4,600 plants sprouting and i am working on a misting watering system as i speak.

They want over 3,000 bucks for a hay chopper which is total BS. i purchased a heavy duty steel drum then converted it to a hay chopper. i welded two very high quality John Deere high flow bladed inverted on a steel shaft supported by two low profile pillow blocks. the power motor is a two horse power 120 volt AC at 3450 rpm. needless to say the thing kicks total ass but because of under provisioning the shaft i will replace it with a one inch diam shaft.
imagine two inverted high flow blades sucking air downward then blowing out a discharge tube out the bottom front. each blade was extended by four inches so i have a nice mean blade cutting hay. what this is for is to chop up hay for covering of the soil and layering of the compost bin. the hay will then get covered with top quality hard wood mulch to completely block the sun from beating the crap out of the soil.
by adding microbes into the soil it will decompose the hay and mulch to make the plants and microbes happy and i get to reap the benefits of having awesome melons and vegetables. not only that i saved 2,600 bucks.
i will be moving seedlings to the garden in two weeks. i will post pics of the hay chopper and the garden soon.

Organic garden is coming along beautifully, have 22 rows at 80 feet each. the second half of the garden is cover cropped with Crimson Clover, medium Red Clover and Japanese Buckwheat. after some growth i will begin to spread organic hard wood mulch. we are working on decomposed crushed granite to infuse in the soil at a later date. what most people do not know is since the Granite is decomposing the microbes i am adding to the soil will readily attack the Granite and start releasing the micro nutrients into the soil taking the plans health and nutrition to another level. this happens within just a few months. i will post pics of the garden when we are finished with the planting. 100% organic, no pesticides, no man made fertilizers just as NATURE intended.
I should have over 1500 Cantaloupe, 1000 Watermelon and countless other vegetables. fabulous garden to say the least.

I do not believe in health in a corporate bottle so i never buy things manufactured like health supplements of any kind. to many people are fooled into thinking you can find health in a bottle when they are not only making corporations rich which only care in your money, most of the time your getting screwed with the product.
on that note i take some single item supplements that are NOT corporate processed crap. ie single item non processed and i take it every morning and i have lost 51 lbs in the last year. what i take is in a pill form because of the taste fore which i make them myself buying the ingredients in RAW form. what i take every morning is as follows, 1 Moringa 2 Hemp seeds 3 Chia seeds 4 Flax Seeds 5 Tumeric 6 100% Cacoa powder from Cocoa Nibs I also drink Organic Peruvian Coffee from coops which in it's non processed bean form is really good for you with Organic raw honey. together from the above ingredients i have vitals of a twenty year old verified by my last visit to the Doc which is great considering i am almost 60. heed my warning when i say "Do not trust corporations when it comes to your health."
do yourself a favor and look up all the amazing ingredients and you will see just what power house ingredients they are thus you will be on your way to a better healthy lifestyle. i have stamina, so, so much more energy through out the day with the added bonus of amazing mental clarity. every person i have talked into trying this were simple blown away at the results and now take then daily.
the old addage of "Try it you'll like it" is very true in this case so please take control of you life and health.

Working on a new garden this weekend and clearing the land. the garden will only be 25 x 25 feet but at least it is a garden. All scraps from the cooking will go into the soil along with my Holganix to replace the soil microbes. Also building a compost bin so I can cook the soil just right lol!
By spring time the soil should be good enough for planting and I am excited to say the least.
