Slam1263: Voiceofreason01: Matthew Keene: Zeno-25: Build a $300 underground greenhouse

Woah, renting a freaking excavator for a day must be cheaper than I imagined.

you've obviously never used one of those in your life if you think that's the tool you want to use for digging an 8ft deep hole 30-40ft long

Obviously you never had a cheap assed Dad/Uncle/Grandpa with lots of male heirs.



Yup my grandpa thought grandkids and chain gang were synonymous, complained once that he was working us to death and his reply was, and I quote "good there's too damn many of ya anyway"

Ambivalence: That would be one way to fix my squirrel problem. God damned squirrels keep digging up my seeds and plants.


But you'd have to deal with star-nosed moles.

GoldDude: Pick: They always tell you "build it for $300". Then you start building it and find out they meant $3000.00

They do reveal in the article that $300 is for cheap-end materials only.  You are expected to find suckers and/or slaves to do all the labour.


That's what kids are for.

jaytkay: Great_Milenko: These days, I would assume the builder of an underground greenhouse would be one of those retarded doomsday preppers.

They don't eat vegetables.

DS1970: I have a sizable property and I grow pot every year...above ground.  Just for personal use.  Sun, a little bit of Miracle-gro when you water, and let nature do the rest.

The hardest part of salvaging the product is trying to dry it out...lots of opportunity to grow mold on your crop, or over-dry.  That took me awhile to experiment with and get right.

Any others do this?  What is your best advice about the curing process?


Dry ice and a coffee can.

Get a tall box, line with plastic, suspend plant on strut across top o' box.

/once, back in the 70's, it was a barn, and hay baleing machine.

Yeah, that's what I tried to tell the cops, but they're still threatening to press kidnapping charges.
(Wow, your own kids... that's an important detail you left out!)

A word of advice:  save the top soil when you start digging so you can put it back in the hole when you are done digging the hole for the greenhouse. The "garden" illustrated is pretty poor and scraggly looking. This may be due to the lack of rich top soil. You can't grow much in the thin, nutrient poor sub-soil.

As the urban farmer-wannabe, Winfield puts it in the Winfield's Farm one-man plays, you should "never try to farm land that has had a glacier on it", unless the glacier was long, long ago, several ice ages, in fact. Glaciers scrap away the top soil, and also the sub-soil, leaving nothing but rock. It takes thousands of years to replace the soil. Even with the help of bogs and forests, it takes about 150 years to make an inch of topsoil. Don't waste your time and don't waste soil.

Yeah, that's usually the first question I get when I tell people I set up an aquaponics rig in my basement. Depending on the person, they're either relieved or disappointed when I tell them I grow basil, parsley, thyme, oregano, rosemary, lettuce, and carrots. Once I get a few more harvests, I think I'm going to make it much bigger and get some yellow perch for the fish tank instead of $0.19 goldfish. I may try tomatoes and peppers if I make a bigger system. It's only running on a 10 gallon tank right now.
