I love designing and building natural habitats and systems!

Currently brainstorming my next system build....a community garden? a local organic produce business selling to our local organic store? an educational project built for the town?

I don't order online very often at all.  Actually though the deep fryer element came from a fryer that my wife got on  It had a bad rheostat out of the box, but she only paid 4 bucks for it, so shipping back barely seemed worth it since I have a deep fryer already.  For the controller I am building, I use, and mouser or digikey.   I shopped locally for a stainless steel element, but could only find a 3500 watt which was more than I wanted.

Hi Averan: making a strawberry tower out of regular pbc with indented pockets for the plans "home made type" and fill it with sure to grow instead of hydroton , You are more familiar with this product than I, Question is: it will be more lighter and what about irrigation will have to be on a timer or can be run constantly. Your thought on this please. Thanks CJ
