A box of observations about sustainable hobby farming, microbiology, recipes, and odd projects

The grow lights I threw together years ago (from Future House Farm blog) are still in use even though my kitchen is tiny and I have no other place to keep the seedlings even moderately warm. Happily they are working to give the seedlings at least part of what they need!
The chain attached to the shop lights are on a hook on the stands. so raising the height of the lights are easy and can even make for one side higher than another, to accommodate swiftly growing tomatoes.
Now I just need to get the cat to stop eating my squash plants. What a brat...
And just for fun, photo of the rooster, Georgie Porgie. He is a pretty bloke but still quite wary of me.
Trying to live sustainably in my new tiny hobby farm in the Appalachia foothills... 2 donkeys,lotsa chickens, a dog and a cat. And a 4-wheeler WHEEE! Goats are next once we get more goat-proof fencing LOL! Also some bits of cooking, political commentary, and microbiology. Varied interests make for an intriguing mind :)
