Awesome folks!

I just took the tomatoes from uncer the lights in our spare bedroom out to the green house. Now starting the second batch of our seeds for:

> Flowers,
> Winter and summer squash,
> Cucumbers, and
> H2O Mellon.

IF this weekend is nice I will move the sweet and hot peppers to the green house.

When I get a minute i will post some picks.

Thank you JoJo.

We are down to the last gallon of OO from a case I purchased at a restaurant supply house in 2012. I opened that gallon a couple of weeks ago and is not rancid or anything.

We keep/kept the gallon cans in our root cellar. Constant temp year round between ~40-50 degrees F.

 I was surfing the net for canned meats. I started at Walmart and the prices were around $6'50 to $8.50 for a 28oz can. I then went to Amazon and Ebay, both were as much as $12.00 or more HIGHER for the same product.
 It pays to shop around. :coffeeNews:

 I have a tiny raised garden but my 24 yellow onions are up at 14 inches and my 24 white onions are at 9 inches with radish planted among them. My 2'x3' raised garden of beets have just broken thru the soil. I also have two 18" pots of carrots and yesterday I planted a 5 gallon bucket of potatoes with another one to come. I lost my rosemary bush over a very cold winter this year and had to buy another one along with sweet basil.
 I forgot to mention my 30 garlic plants are at 9" also.

Erick i have to convert some of these from miles into kilometers to use. great read and i am now even more motivated to do this. I am wreck it ralph scale out of shape and need to get my kaboots moving and fast. Gym just doesn't do it for me. I did however enjoy MMA(mixed martial arts) i will begin with the running and then add some of the MMA workout i remember and then will post my results here for others as motivation.

I actually feel kind of proud of this one but i planted seedlings for some onions, carrots, beetroot and them a few herb plants aswell.
I have plans for an upright potato planter or two and plenty of good soil to use for it... can't wait to get started on that one. i have never actually done this type of gardening by myself but i have some experience having helped out on my grandfolks farm.
Nothing at all on the scale they produced veggies on. But it will atleast provide for my family, hopefully.
Hoping to see some good growth over the next few weeks. winter is strating to rear its head and the cold is starting to set in.
Will be interesting to see what comes up.

   I have three different power packs.  I have one that I built using SLA batteries and a solar charge controller, this pack is kept on a battery maintainer all the time, but it as the option to connect to portable solar panels.  I have two others that are kept in Faraday enclosures. One is lithium jump start pack from Harbor Freight.  The price is reasonable and it gets good reviews.  I also have a first generation Revolt armored battery system from Hardened Power Systems:  It's a pricey battery pack, but it works very well.

Jack, would that gen 2 ReVolt work with these:

I am a noob when it comes to anything electrical.

 Your not the center of the universe, it's all part of growing up. If you can't handle rejection go back to bed.
