    Planted 50 green beans yesterday, more beans and potatoes and maybe corn going to be planted next weekend...

    I just bought a 10 x 16 lofted roof building that's being delivered this week and going to use about 60 percent of the building for a workshop to build more solar panels, the building is going to be wired and powered by solar exclusively, and eventually my house will be all solar, I'm also looking into wind generators, just one as a backup for now for this new building...

    Bought 4 new batteries earlier tonight and along with the 3 already in use I'll have 30 percent more storage capacity over the average electrical power I'll consume in the new building, which is being delivered Thursday this week...It will be climate controlled year round...

    Here's some pics, beans have sprouted up and growing, im going to til up some more area and plant corn and more beans along with some peppers...Waiting for the new batteries to arrive, I've been wiring the building which is for the most part a workshop building and going to set up the solar panels next week on the roof, for now I've just been laying them outside when I need to charge up...I'm going to add a wind generator in a month for backup for those days of clouds and rains when I might need extra power...So far I've not used any electricity from the grid or from my house to supply electrical power to the building, in that regard it's been self sufficient from day one...It will take about a month to have all the power systems in place and complete, next year I want to begin solar and wind power systems for the house...

    It looks really good. I hope you don't have any problems with critters eating your plants. :)

    Expanded the garden another 25 feet or more, planted more green beans and added sweet yellow corn as well as a habanero pepper plant...
