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.
