A friend has just alerted me to this blog. I have been interested in food production since I set up a small subsistence farm in the early 70s.

I went on to bigger and more interesting things with a hydroponics farm in the late 80s and now I am so old that all the work I do is typing.

I am pleased to come across this - I will have questions hopefully answered in the future!!

Thanks for this post on your very cool blog! We look forward to another fun Tour de Cluck on May 14, 2011! We already have multiple entries from locations as far west as Road 96 and east to El Macero.
