DailyDirt: So You Want To Grow Your Own Food?

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Farming isn’t a hobby. Gardening is a hobby. No one really expects to be able to grow enough food to feed hundreds of households from a garden, but maybe technology can help change that. Autonomous farming robots and other labor-saving devices might make farming a lot easier for a few people to be much more productive, but we’re not quite at the point where anyone really needs to change farming techniques so drastically. However, if you think you’d want to become a post-modern farmer, check out a few of these links.

After you’ve finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

War on gardening

Indoor gardening is almost impossible now. Back when I was a kid, it was possible, but then we started the War On Drugs. Many drugs are plants grown indoors, so this became the War On Indoor Gardening. Anything you need to grow plants indoors is now illegal or highly regulated as they assume that Grow Lamp bulbs (for example) are being used to grow marijuana. Best keep your gardens OUTDOORS to avoid nosey LEO breaking down the door some day.

Re: Re: War on gardening

Because an officer will think that’s suspicious behavior, that you’re protesting too much, and suggest kicking in the door later to see what you’re REALLY growing.

These days, the people in charge want to know every aspect of your life for every second of the day. If you complain, you’re obviously a criminal because “If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.”

So, no growing anything where they can’t see if you don’t want kicked-in doors.

Dirty Rotten Rain

All of these great farmer’s best efforts can be so quickly nullified by one tanker jet flying overhead spraying the atmosphere with the toxic waste of barium and aluminum and God Knows What Else. And believe what I am saying, these tanker jets are counting in the multitudes, dumping millions of pounds of Only God Knows (beside them). My water company from whom I receive water from every month doesn’t even test for those chemical and radioactive compounds. Plants have to withstand that onslaught and still remain nutitious. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.
