Lets see how the USDA likes what we about to do..

September 26, 2016

Yes that’s right I’m going green is the plan. At some point in life we have to move forward and progress, learn to adjust with the times and technology in every aspect that confronts us and that is exactly what happened. I was slapped in the face with numerous signs and messages that just bothered me until I went and had to see for myself.

My father called me “Acido ” yes Acid because everything I got my hands on I tore apart and put it back together to see what made it work and sometimes I still do the same , Old habits die hard as they say. Well as most of you know I fell into gardening because the area where we settled is the best region for growing almost anything year round and boy did that spark some new life in our proximity. My wife can’t understand where the green thumb came from because in the decade we have been together I had helped her start a garden in Louisville prior to moving to Oregon and well from what I understand It was quite a scene. But she’s to blame for that one because I didn’t do anything but clear the area of grass and turn over the dirt. We both dropped the seeds and she took care of it while I worked on the road that year. Now shes seemed to have forgotten this because the story according to her is She don’t understand where all of a sudden everything I touch grows. Our land lady feels the same way but seriously I just make sure they get watered and don’t dry out which is the biggest reason for a garden to fail.

I had a bright idea to look into water gardens because I saw a video that claimed the usda and the agricultural department were removing the video wherever it played because it showed how to grow your own fish and veggies using both to sustain each other and never really waste hardly any water doing so, Which really got my attention.

Now I have stumbled upon a farming method that recycles water and creates an ecosystem that is very much self sustainable and cost effective regardless of the type of power supplying the pumps filters or lighting if any at all. Yes we’re using modern and old fashioned technology with some plain ole common sense.  I have stumbled on something so simple it’s stupid simple and we all learn these basic physics and natural science in grade school.

I have some extensive experience in construction, manufacturing, creating and wood working that such a task would take a journeyman from many aspects of building to complete the tall order and wide variety of skills.

This operation will involve raising fish and maintaining water quality while remaining green and producing edible organic veggies that would entice any adult to pull out their wallet to take some home. The lot will be graded to drain rain into a reservoir pond which will have a natural filter serving both ponds the second one being located in the greenhouses or in the middle moving water up to pipes using a paddle wheel and physics to feed the plants and aerate the fish pond which produces the nitrites, nitrates and alkaline that the plants , enzymes needed to grow produce worthy of any supermarket display.

The reservoir will also have a paddle wheel to deliver water from pond to pond and filters constantly working together utilizing the drainage from the hydroponic pipelines pushing the paddles downward and carrying the water up to the next series of pipes. A vicious circle that with the right planning and hard work has no reason it can’t make patent history. The pipe system is registered provisionally and has the potential to insure the life of the plants or a simple failsafe worth every penny for the pipe from us. The plants will live for up to 3 days depending on weather conditions shall the water supply stop, Something that crippled most hydroponic growers if they fell victim to a faulty hose or outage. #hydroponic #puddlepipe #system  One of the conditions of the land use agreement is to remain green and not use public utilities. So solar energy and physics will play major roles in the project and a signed land contract will be enough to kick it into high gear.

We will keep you updated with the proposal and wish us luck cause this one will need financing and any help or contributions. The rent on the acre of space is very affordable so this project is very close to being a pipedream come true with help from some great friends willing to give a hand and willing to trade for work in other arenas.

 

Recycling water over and over with a 5-10% depletion rate with the same 100 gallons just using a dechlorinator to keep from hurting fish while adding new fresh water if weather forces the plants to drink more  water. Professional fish farmers introduce 10% new water daily. Fish will eat up to 1/3 their weight daily and enjoy lettuce cabbage and citrus as treats and good source of nutrition.

Wish us luck and thank you for coming by to read the latest in the Pimpmytattoo world and our blog. More updates regularly.
