Got a Delta 3D Printer for prototyping various projects. I’m especially excited to fab parts for drones and a desktop aquaponics project I am
If you just want to know what I used to kill fungus gnats successfully, and don’t need my whole long winded spiel on use
I needed to get accurate temperature readings of a cold room for data logging, so I put together this schematic and code. I ultimately
In this part of the DIY drone/quad build, we are working on a transmitter. It would have been nice to have an R/C transmitter
It’s been a difficult couple years for the Gardenisto garden and web publishing effort. I started all my experiments, propagation and production in a
In this short series of posts, I will show you how to build your own drone, with a transmitter, complete with joysticks, a receiver to receive your instructions, and a flight controller to control the stability and flying characteristics of your quad/drone. The complete build is under 200 bucks, plus or minus a few miscellaneous items.
This is mostly a garden update but also a short post about potting up some small coffee, and citrus starts.
Wyoming is a tough place to grow anything, but I was determined, and now I have figs. I started Lattarula fig cuttings last year,
The coffee plants are flowering! Most of them are mature enough to flower and fruit, but with the Southern California weather being as hot and dry as it has been this summer, I didn’t think they would.
We lost a chicken this spring, and replaced it with two chicks mid summer so that we can maintain a regular production of eggs.
I lost my dog and best friend Luna to cancer on Saturday October 22 2016. She was an important part of my everyday life, and I’m sort of devastated.
A small addition to the flock this summer required just a little more space in the chicken coop. So a remodel was needed. The coop has the same look and feel, but is bigger with even more ease of access. I managed to recycled nearly all of the old coop materials, and only use a limited amount of new materials.
I did a major remodel on the quail coop. Its more functional, with a run that houses food and water, so that the coop stays cleaner and fresher smelling. And yes, it looks even more like a child’s doll house now.
For the rabbit stew, I wanted a tomato wine base like a chilindron or a cioppino, and a chile pepper base like a posole. Because I ‘stole’, different concepts to make the dish, but they all had pepper in it, its called Chiladrona. LAdrona means thief in Spanish.
Dandelion Burdock Beer was originally a brew made from lightly fermented root extracts. Nowadays its an overly sweet soda. I decided I’d take a first stab at brewing a more authentic one.
