Spring happens fast in the Tunk Valley

Published / by bde / Leave a Comment

I’m about a week behind where I usually want to be right now because I got sick. Most of the snow is melted. I’ve got two rule burns in already and just finished signing up for a DNR Grant tree thinning program that covers 50% of the cost of the work. I’ve got 6.6 acres to clear and I’ll get reimbursed about 3k when I’m done. See the area in blue in the screenshot below. It’s a lot of work to clear and burn but I’m confident I’ll get it done.

Been struggling with my garden and getting seeds popped and then and idea came to me yesterday. It’s a pain in the ass to get up and down the loft where I had all the seed starts before so I decided that I would repurpose some plastic sheeting I had lying around outside all winter and simply wrapped part of the deck with it and now have a makeshift greenhouse. Also relocated the 300w LED fixture and may run that as supplemental. Got a temp/humidity monitor in there and soon a webcam to monitor remotely.

Iron Mountain Gardens Spring 2019 growing season has officially kicked off! The pond is pretty full as well and I’m going to start pumping some of the water into a 400gal container near the hugel bed where this years crop will go.

Lastly, decided to step up my hummingbird feeder game and got a trough. Can’t wait to start seeing the lil guys.

Another safe and successful rule burn

Tamarac tree trimming.

I’ve been wanting to trim this Tamarac for over a year now. Finally decide to haul the ladder over and climb up to limb off a few branches. Still got a little bit to go.

Taking back my content

Published / by bde / Leave a Comment

Seeing as how Facebook put me in a 30 day timeout for posting cannabis related content about my day job. I’ve decided to fire up the blog activity and start taking back ownership of my content. I’m done letting Facebook monetize my data.

Expect a lot of pics and posts of llamas, fires, weed, and whatever else I decide to put up. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

Stay tuned for giveaways and other fun stuff. Follow my on Instagram @eisenetics_

Subscribe to my Premium Instagram Stories

Published / by bde / Leave a Comment

Instagram just launched a new feature for “Close Friends”. I intend to use this feature similar to how a lot of people use Snapchat stories as “premium” content that users can subscribe to to gain more intimate access to content. In my case, it will mostly be related to my offgrid lifestyle, cannabis industry work, and hacking on hardware/software. I’m going to try the same thing on Instagram so if you want to stay current and up on my daily activities, projects, and ramblings, I’m asking for a small $5 monthly donation to help support my effort. Here’s the link to the Paypal subscription. I can’t thank you enough for all the support and encouragement I’ve gotten on this journey so far. Onward! –BDE 

PS – I am also holding a fundraiser on Facebook to raise money and support the llama rescue effort. https://tinyurl.com/llamarescue

Crypto for the masses – Sign up for Robinhood!

Just learned about a new app that will begin to offer more streamlined opportunities to invest and trade cryptocurrencies. All done via easy to use/setup iOS and Android apps. If you sign up using the link below, I get bumped up on the list so this is nothing more than a shameless clickbait post. But seriously, this is the smoothest app I’ve seen other than Binance and Coinbase. And looks to be cheaper fees as well. Sign up for Robinhood to invest in Bitcoin and stocks, and we’ll both get a free stock like Apple, Ford, or Sprint! https://share.robinhood.com/briane412
