Sunday Afternoon Ramblings

Here’s a quick update on the farm:  The irrigation system has been completed for the prototype, and it works perfectly.  There are still a couple of parts to add in, like the timer and the water sensor, but the basics are in place.  It’s simple and efficient and should be easy to replicate, which is extremely important because I’m gonna have to build dozens more over the next few years.

Next up is the lighting system, which by far will be the most expensive part, but it’s also the most important.  I’ve decided on the Quantum T5 Badboy as my system because of the performance and the efficiency, but each one is pretty expensive, so it will take some time to get the lighting completed.

So far, I’m pleased with the prototype.  The basic components are simple, and it functions very well.  There’s still a long way to go and a lot to learn, but it’s coming together.  I’m also proud of myself because this has been a big challenge, and so far I’ve been up to each step.  That feels good.  After the last few years, it’s nice to have a little positive momentum.

  1. Former Student: You’re farming now lol? I attempted to find your personal facebook to no avail. I’m alive and kicking. Good to see you are as well. Best of luck with your irrigation system!

    p.s. My apologies for the informal letter writing.
