Thought I'd share some of the things I've been thinking about doing/growing related to Bio. Not all of them are DMS related, but it might spark some ideas in people.
Making a Cider Press: We've already talked about this one, but I'd really like to have a cider press because I like Cider and the byproduct is compostable material we can use or donate to local gardens. We would also need an Apple Scratter(Grinder, destroyer, what have you.) Andrew Floyd and I were looking at them the other day.
Growing Fruit trees: I want to grow some interesting fruit trees. I have a few, but I still want try to root new ones from the branches of the old ones. I am also looking at ordering a Cherimoya Tree(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cherimoya
.) I'd like to start experimenting with grafting trees to other trees so we can grow multiple things out of one tree.
Growing Vegetables: I'd like to start growing some potatoes by trying the trash can method. With the cider press we could use the leftover apple chunks as compost material to build up the trash cans. Apparently people can get up to 35 or 40 pounds of potatoes from one garbage can. Also some Jerusalem artichokes would be pretty neat. Garbage Can gardening is a whole thing in and of itself and can be used for all sorts of veggies.
Other things- I'd like to start some hop rhizomes growing. They move up and out instead of down and over, so we can start with a fairly small base and they'll grow on their own as long as we provide them some rods. Also, I'd like to start some Aloe Vera plants. They are really handy if someone burns themselves, which I imagine happens now and then at the space.
Electronic stuff- I'd like to set up some arduinos with moisture sensors and monitoring so I can check the water level of plants. Can take that a step further and a pump tied to it to make sure everything is properly watered. This would be particularly handy with the blue agave I have...it is VERY picky about water.
Anyhow, those are my ideas for now. What do you guys have?
