After taking a few months off from producing videos, I'm getting back into it again. I'm really looking forward to getting our new greenhouse constructed this year too!

I spent some time over the summer experimenting with trying to increase the growing density of our lettuce. As I plan the new greenhouse, I'm working on ways to utilize every square foot of space (or square meter for my non-imperial friends).

Of course, I also want to support our own GrowGrip product line and am working them into the design calculations. Based on my experiments, I've been happy with the results and have a method that helps to increase the number of plants per square foot and shows that the GrowGrip is a viable option for commercial growing. In other words, it can help you be more profitable!

There is always more fine-tuning with the process, but I'm confident that the growing method will be a good start to our future greenhouse.

This is a presentation that I gave about what you should consider before starting a farm. This was filmed In November 2016 at the Aquaponics Association conference in Austin TX

Perhaps as I get older, I get grumpier. Or maybe it's because Fall is here and the weather is getting colder. (Again, my old age not liking the cold as much as my former youthful self?) I have been told on more than one occasion that my on-camera personality needs to be a tad more cheerful. That's probably true, but I rather focus on presenting meaningful information rather than being a TV host for Entertainment Tonight.
Today's video is no exception to my on-camera perception. ;-)

One of the guys that hunts on our property was up in his tree stand when this 250# black bear came along to feast on some freshly cut corn. Hunting bear in CT is not permitted so he had to sit there and wait for the bear to leave.
