    I started this project late last year and this is where I do my plant starts. I ‘m going to do some hydroponics stuff later in the year in this room. I will grow mostly lettuce when it gets too hot outside. I also use the lights to dry the herbs and tea.

    Very Nice. I am so impressed. You must put a good deal of time into the research and set-up alone. Is Mr. Lizard still hanging around?

    BTW – I like that volcano stove. We recently acquired one but have not had a chance to break it in yet. Looking forward to checking out your videos with it. :-) http://theurbanpepper.tumblr.com/

      Thank you for the compliment. I have not seen Mr. Lizard but I still hear him from time to time.  It’s amazing how many ways you can grow food, I’ve got stuff in the ground, in containers, raised beds, grow room and the dutch bucket system. I’ve  learn a lot from you tube posters like mhpgardener, texasprepper2 and indoorharvestgardens.  The grow room really gave me a big head start this year.  It also kept me very busy during the cold months.  I’m glad I spent the fiat now rather than later.

      You guys really need to test out the volcano stove.  Did you get the oven attachment? I didn’t get the propane hook up as I wanted some different cooking sources. The oven test I did with corn bread muffins was awesome Test # 1 fail Test #2 fail # 3 perfect. I guess the Third time really is a charm. You guys should look at the Kelly kettle also, I’m really impressed with it. I get a lot of stuff like that @ http://beprepared.com

        Yes, I hear ya’ on spending it now (while it still has some purchasing power) – as well as backup components (even pots and buckets, etc..) for whatever I can think of. I use http://readynutrition.com/ in addition to beprepared.com.

        Ready Nutrition (Tess Pennington’s) is where we purchased the volcano stove last year. It came with the propane attachment but we did not get the oven. I have a sun oven which is awesome. Any time of the year (temp wise) if there is sun, it rocks. I have roasted a chicken, made stews, rice and meat dishes and baked bread and brownies in it.

        When you get a chance, I sent you an email on the 15th – curious to hear your thoughts.

        Cog and I are out to set our first fence posts. Uncharted territory for me. :-)

    21 days under the lights and I planted half of them today. The tray on the left side are apple tree plants that someone started and gave them to me for their lack of commitment. I need to do something with them soon, if anyone( hint) knows how to grow them, please chime in:)

    I just watched your “indoor set up” video and I’ll have to think about how I could go about doing something like that.

    ***** FYI ******** I looked up your domain “theurbanpepper.com” and IT EXPIRED FOUR DAYS AGO.
    Might want to pay your bill if you want to keep it!
