    If you do raised beds that are only 4' wide you can easily reach the middle. I like mine 16" tall. That way I can work from my knees or bending over.

    Well to my surprise most of the 2 year old seeds germinated. So I will have a surplus of plants this season. I planted 2 planters of lettuce. One that is mix variety and one romaine. I have 2 more planters, but come to find out they don't fix over my railing. So I will give those to the mother...

    Knife Sharpening

    Ok review time! Please remember I'm not a knife person, so it's guaranteed I will butcher terminology and basic knife etiquette. I got a chance to sit down and sharpen my edc pock knife(Benchmade rift). Because this knife has a weird backstrap I was sure how well it would clamp into the...

    This is the one I ended up buying. Agreed. My father bought one and love it. I hate it, big time. That's why I was pursing a new method.

    Knife Sharpening

    One video mentioned about being able to fasten it to a bench. I did not look close enough to see if it has mounting points. If it did it wouldn't be difficult to mount it to a board/bench. Because of how the base is flare/tapered I doubt you would be able to clamp it to anything. If your...

    Knife Sharpening

    Seems to be some sort of plastic maybe composite. I really have to admit it's not the cheap plastic/composite. It has a nice weight and feel to it. I did see videos with larger knives wanted to tip the thing over. The theme I did see online was people are holing onto the base and rotating it as...

    Deal reached to legalize marijuana in NYS for recreational use (merged threads)

    All points that were raised. Pretty much only profitable for corporate farming that can line politicians pockets.

    Deal reached to legalize marijuana in NYS for recreational use (merged threads)

    Ya I heard that on the radio also. I'm just joking around there is zero urge to grow any weed. I was talking with some coworkers and we all were wondering if hobby farming was possible and if profitable. I don't know if you can do bulk sales to distribution/THC companies? If not it wouldn't be...

    Finally bit the bullet and bought a sharpener. I haven't tried it yet, but I did put it together last night. Seems very sturdy with good weight.

    Has the child tax credit went through yet? Last I knew it didn't. Not for nothing 2k child credit was a substantial increase from what it was previously with Trumps legislation.

    I use to buy the starter plants but after coming away with 1 flat of plants that cost me $80 I decided to buy the equipment to start my own. It cost about $120 in equipment to start it in the basement. IDK how much electricity it uses though.

    Well I'm hoping this week I have some time to start some seeds in the basement. If I remember right the I will need to start the onions & peppers first. Then in a few weeks I'll start the tomatoes. I'm using the seeds I used last year I hope they kept will in the freezer. I'm hoping to add...

    Starting a "What did you Get today" thread. Let's give it a try (dont forget pics)

    We used a homemade one that did very well. The problem is multiple family members had bought into it over the years. It was causing drama that we didn't need. So I convinced my father this was the right move to eliminate the drama and become more self sufficient. The front pans weren't installed...

    Agreed gold bond. Another thought would Vaseline in the get home bag because it has the added value of a fire started aid. But I would hate to use it everyday in the fashion.

    That stuff is good stuff. We use it on our evaporators. The stuff can leave you a little itchy so guard for that. Also if your using it around wood products I would recommend protecting it with some fire bricks and high temp. mortar.

    Some Missouri counties 2A authorize local sheriffs to arrest federal agents enforcing anti-gun policies

    I think to add to this scenario if the inept biden admiration allows it to go on for any amount of time it will spiral out of control fast. I think you will see refugees from oppressed states moving there in droves. Even if it doesn't result in war it will dramatically change the population...

    Everything I've read and seen with the system is positive. I also think it will keep improving with more satellites and more ground stations.

    Lessons Learned from the Texas Grid Collapse

    No where to put a chimney. We are now thinking about maybe doing something on the master bedroom. we could go out the one end of the house relatively easy. The problem is that would be in the most unused broken up space. It would be hard to move the heat from that point around the building. We...

    The problem is you don't have to be too far out in the boonies to not have internet. I live on the same road the local high school is. Less that 5 minutes from SUNY Morrisville and on a moderately traveled road. With all of that said we don't even have DSL available. The only option we have is...

    I want to do wood at the house in the worst way, because my father next door does wood and we do wood for the syrup. So our infrastructure is already setup in that area. But with the fashion that my house is built I don't think I will be able to accomplish it. I do think I might explore an...
