Silly me, I made a boo boo and addressed Dave when it should have been Andrew Cumberland, sorry about that.
Loved the video Andy.
I was also looking at the super caps Jeff.
Dave, your tiny farm helps us learn that a house is not everything, some edible plants in the space left will help us to be self reliant and contribute to our living costs. By being self-reliant we often recycle as much as we can and use worm farms to help feed our plants, save water in tanks and when possible use solar systems. Provide our own food through raising poultry, fish farming and using it's by-products and preserving foods and making wines etc. This is what is Dave tries to do and succeeds well. This is tiny farming.
Gee whiz, Jeff, you got my attention. The supercapacitor is new to me. Graphene is also a new product that I have not read about. Good product for the future.
Batteries are the next thing Dave - when I can afford it. I'd like to be electrical grid independent.
When you look at it, the 'tiny' farm isn't so tiny.
Very squeezy perhaps -- but that means you don't have to walk so far to get a feed.
I wonder what will be happening to MacDowall Manor in the future? What could you add to improve on the self-reliance?
It's a tiny farm with a big appetite.
Thanks heaps for that Travis.
Wow - I viewed your video whilst on lunch at work and I shared it with my co-worker. We were talking about it all afternoon. Pretty much you've got the set up I'm aiming for so. It's awesome to know it's possible in Brisbane.
