    What kind of seeds did you use? And how does the little black hose put in the nutrients?

    That spider on your plants in front of where you where sitting on your stall was having a great time while you where talking to us. Watch the video near the very end when you are sitting on your stool, but look at the plants not yourself 🙂

    When you first start a seedling…does the drip line drip right down the plan into it grows roots to the water reservoir?

    Does the drip line always run…or just every few minutes?

    An old hippie (as he oft referred to himself, wrote a book: The $50 & Up Underground House Book http://undergroundhousing.com/book.html It maybe a few dollars cheaper on Amazon ( I try & support those whose ideas I use, when I can [ ISBN-13: 978-0442273118 ]). Don't know if he left family behind. He died a few years ago. One of his points was: at 8 feet under ground [fun digging in clay], the temperature is the mean temperature of your area. I guess taking the high & lows of each month, finding the average over a year & finding the temperature that actually occurred at your site closest to that is the mean temperature of your area. The point is, in our area it's 45F degrees . To obtain say 80F degrees: in Summer at 8', it's raising the ground temperature (45F degrees) by opening a window or two up 35F more degrees to equal 80 F degrees. In Winter, it's heating by say a Rocket Mass Heater(DIY) etc to get to 80F dgrees. I'm sure the principle applies elsewhere. That is just where I heard it. I think in your video, you talk about cooling water from the ground in Summer. (Oh, he also wrote a book about UGGH Under Ground Green Houses). Hope this stimultes your creativity gray cells. Many hands make the work lighter. Am very interested in sustainabe, inexpensive DIY, living by God's grace. Thanks for sharing, brother. Appreciate your heart. God makes it fun!

    I saw something that if you have red around tomato plants, they can sense that and will produce more tomatoes because they perceive that as competition. They may also benefit from a small electric charge, so it's good to use wire cages and tie nylon hose to it to attract static electricity. If you use soil, if you make kombucha, you always get another scoby (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast – a biofilm). Soon you have more than you need, and one use of these is to blend them up with water and add to soil for plants. I did that last summer to a pot of zinnias – they really exploded with blooming and got healthy. Really amazing. If you smoke, be careful to wash before touching tomato plants, because you can possibly transmit tobacco mosaic virus to the plants.
