  1. I was looking at the Backwoods Mobile Gear and Tethrd versions. Took a shot at making one. Still a work in progress but the basics are there.
  2. Been harvesting cucumber, carrot and celery for a few weeks. Got my 1st Minnesota midget melon today. Something raided my corn. Took the stalks and all.
  3. This only my 2nd year trying potatoes, 1st year with the tower. In reading online it seems the towers are more for space savings and easy collection purposes than higher yields. Right now there are roughly 1ft between each layer of potatoes. The towers are about 2ft wide so they can grow inwards as well. I expect smaller potatoes overall but don't really know. I have also seen towers where you plant just inn the center and fill the tower as the plant grows so you would have a really long/tall plant beneath the soil.
  4. Potato towers. 1 for potatoes and 1 for sweet potatoes. 1st time trying this method
  5. My neighbor mentioned something similar to me regarding asparagus, 1st year do not harvest anything, 2nd year take only 1 cutting, then 3rd year harvest normally. Something to do with letting the plant establish good rooting.
  6. Thanks. Your assistance and generosity have helped me along. Hope to get out within the next two weeks
  7. Initially with the lee classic loader I could not seat bullets to the desired depth. It seems I couldn't hammer hard enough or the crimp was not tight enough to hold the bullet with the powder level in the case. With the new press they all were easily set to desired depth and stayed there. Already happy with the purchase
  8. Small upgrade from the hammer and classic.
  9. Grow box is up and running. It's much brighter in person. Not too much heat from the fixture/bulbs.
  10. I googled a bit. The person who owned the wells signed a consent order in 1994 wherein he had to close all the wells. He closed 3 by 1995 and stopped responding sometime after and NYSDEC filed an order without hearing levying a 45k fine and requiring closure of all wells by 1999. Seems the well owner may have passed around 2017. Some well pics below
  11. 61 acres for $8400. That would have been a huge red flag immediately. $137 an acre??? I'm not tuned into acreage value but I would think even land that wasn't buildable was still worth more than that, even in the year 2000.
  12. I do enjoy it. I rarely get to go though. Currently stuck fishing the banks of the Hudson come striper season. Years ago I used to fish the Shinnecock Inlet every other day.
  13. 2nd year at gardening. Tried too much too late in the season last year. Built a grow box this year just waiting on my light fixture to arrive on Monday. The box will be horizontal and 50"x24"x21", should fit (4) 1020 trays with extra room for a few small pots. Trying (2) potato towers, 1 sweet potato, 1 blue potato The garden is (3) 3'x6' beds. Did soaker hose last year, which I didn't like much. Going drip line this year.
