A butane soldering iron is a wonderful thing.
Fits anywhere a corded one will, without the cord.
Goes into the field or under the rv to fix a taillight wire without an extension cord.
Hot fast. Cuts holes easy.
I've blown about six holes in my dash (on purpose) with this.
The very best thing for a hole in plastic.

At least they were honest about the new cash register being a piece of shit.

The black beauty seeds I was sent were not black beauty tomatoes.
They're some hybrid throwback to God knows what (hybrid plant seeds do not produce the parent plant. Oddly, they may go back many generations to some odd cousin plant)

It took 130 days to find out they're not black beauty and then only a week to find out I'll get this one set of tomatoes all at once and it'll do little afterward because on top of being wrong it's a determinate. Determinate gives you one group of ripened tomatoes almost all at once then crap out(basically) and indeterminate give you tomatoes sometimes for years.

They're small, red as a tomato can get, and really fairly to very good taste. I won't get three pounds, then the plant is almost worthless. I could baby another pound over months of time.
Luckily the beefsteak I have, better boy and beefsteak beefsteak original are like damn weeds. Throw a leaf on the ground, get a mater plant. We're about a month away and then staggered through next January.

I'll order more black beauty seeds but I'll get them right from the developer this time.

I'm jealous, we were late getting ours in the ground so we're not going to get much, but it was fun and we learned, better next year

Well, I'm jealous because you can plant in the ground.
Elk, deer, coyotes (they love veggies), javelina, bunnies, rats and mice COWS and HORSES(we live on open range and I won't fence) and 100 types of birds... I have to use the greenhouse. The greenhouse is very limiting and it's a skill just to learn to use the space well. I have not learned that skill. Like you... Next year....

There's a picture of it a few pages back in this thread.
It's just a harbor freight 10x12 for now.

I have the material here to build a 16x24 double pane glass greenhouse but I wanted the harbor freight unit to see if I'd stay with the project before I invested in the foundation for the big one. The harbor freight can be moved somewhere else if I decide this isn't for me.
I'm mostly deciding this isn't for me.
This is the bursting of a long held bubble.

The automation and cooling/heating and hydroponic stuff was fun.
The veggie part is just a pain in the pattoot.

I'll use it for growing cottonwood and Navajo Willow and aspen trees from cuttings.
We're all Pinon pine and juniper and cedar now, about 3,000 of them. The others grow within a mile of here so I know they'll do it here. Any other trees will take too long. If I've got 15 more years here that's five too many....

Something I didn't know until recently is;
Most of the fuses, if not all of the fuses in my 24.1 are fuses which have two little holes on the top allowing you to use the tester in the picture to test fuses WITHOUT PULLING THEM. The tool also has a handy fuse puller/putter inner. Green Light lights up, fuse is good. No light, no power across the fuse.
If yours doesn't have those fuses order those fuses and replace as needed or preemptively.

The two pictures are of the same tool. You'll notice the pins are spaced differently in the pictures. There's a handy slide that allows this tool to test any size fuse from those diabolical tiny ones to the why in the hell are these 5a fuses so damn big, big uns.

So I'm sitting here on my considerable dead ass in the garage.
6:30 and the liftmaster 8500 garage door openers close themselves.
It gets real dark real fast (no windows in the garage).
I don't get up.
I open the app and reopen the doors.

I can open or close them from anywhere I can get wifi and/or they close themselves at preset times. And I get notifications by email/text when they open or close.

Coming home in the rv it's;
'Alexa, I'm coming home'
Opens the gate, opens the garage, closes the gate.

I let the 24.1 go outside for a while so it could exercise the generator.
It doesn't see much daylight lately.

Yes.
That is a big pile of skulls and most of a dead deer.
He died the night before Christmas. He wasn't looking so good and food fell out of his mouth when he tried to eat. I estimated within 100ft where we'd find him.
Just a monument to an old dear deer who let a lot of people see their first wild deer up close.
Now he let's them see their first dead thing up close.
