Hi. I'm up above Idaho & Washington, on a bit over eight acres of land, graowing lots of things, and have been at it for years.
I'm interested in how common things - junkyard/garage-sale items, used machinery, used materials, components, etc - can be designed into and recombined to make useful structures & equipment.The sort of equipment or structures that might be used on small farms and homesteads, and in serious urban food gardens.
I've searched and searched online, and found only the very occasional web site, and a small but hopeful number of illustrated projects, along this line. So about a year ago I started a thread on a fairly obscure web site called SufficientSelf.com Scroll down thru the pages.
I'm please that (even on a fairly obscure web site) the thread has had nearly 15,000 views so far. I believe there could be widespread interest, if people contributed to threads like this, or actually got some websites going.
You people at Farm Hack seem to have interests related to my own. I like what you've put up online so far. What are the chances that you will actually publish plans and/or photo or diagram illustrated discussions of the technicalities of some of your "tools"?
Please comment. It'd be great to have some discussion here.
