Growing some stuff there?

2018-02-02 03:59:45 UTC  

not yet, still too snowy

2018-02-02 04:00:14 UTC  

eventually though. They have a 5+ year shelf life

2018-02-02 04:17:26 UTC  

Nice.

2018-02-03 04:32:36 UTC  

Hmm, this makes me wonder, why not construct a greenhouse?

2018-02-03 04:35:01 UTC  

I would be interested looking to it

2018-02-03 04:38:15 UTC  

I mean, it could make farming easier, and you could do it year round, rather than in the warmer half of the year.

Aquaponics greenhouses my dude, most efficient way to do it

2018-02-03 13:02:49 UTC  

Tl;dr on aquaponics, it's combining hydroponics with fish farming. The fish add nitrogen to the water, gets cycled back through the plants. Almost entirely self-sufficient. You can grow duckweed to feed the fish too. Boom, high efficiency gardening using raised beds to maximize sq footage

Can you really use that for 3 square meals a day?

2018-02-03 22:37:06 UTC  

Yeah they’re good for a lot actually

2018-02-03 22:37:16 UTC  

I almost started one with my ex

2018-02-03 22:38:57 UTC  

Yeah same

2018-02-03 22:40:46 UTC  

Its got a fence

2018-02-03 22:40:57 UTC  

So I can garden

2018-02-03 22:41:03 UTC  

Despite it being in town

2018-02-03 22:42:00 UTC  

Nice!

2018-02-03 22:42:04 UTC  

Garden is a must

2018-02-04 07:23:48 UTC  

Find out how I preserved all my eggs with this one CRAZY trick

2018-02-04 19:07:49 UTC  

Yeah the way I wrote that does seem like one of those shitty online ads.

2018-02-04 19:07:53 UTC

This is the best channel and nobody uses it

GROW T U R N I P S

2018-03-09 01:16:37 UTC  

I have done that before actually in a suburban environment. Its a very easy and low maintenance crop.

2018-03-09 01:18:16 UTC  

I tried growing crops and I ended up shooting a rabbit that ate said crops in rage... so I had rabbit for dinner, lol.

2018-03-09 01:18:38 UTC  

Very chad.

2018-03-09 01:18:40 UTC
