Tools to help with the making of soda from juice. The
first pvc bottle holder is for assistance to screw off cap as the bottle
has expanded from the pressure of carbon dioxide aka CO2, and it will
sometime fizz over the top like when popping the cork from a champaine
bottle, the second pvc bottle holder is for the small 220ml bottle that we
pour the soda into, the last pvc holder is for the 1.5 liter bottle of
juice and the 2 days fermentation proccess, the black cover has two
purposes one to block sunlight and the other is if the water bottle cap
shoots off unexpectantly the mess is contained.
These Amaranth are very beautiful in so many ways,

Here's the pile of prickly weeds, I thought once I
have the majority of them picked I'd be able to rest, nope they keep on
growing super fast, it's like a never ending battle against those weeds.
Victory is futile!!
Costing just shy of $1 these comfortable welding glove fit perfect and work better than expected at pulling out those nasty pickly weeds, and they save your hands from lots of pokes and scrapes...
I added a 4 way split hub to the mix and we are
starting to plant the rice farm, so the need for 2 cow waters is no longer
needed, I also now have a 60 meter hose for the plants out on the entrance
way, so the blue hose goes to the entrance way, green hose goes to the
front of the house, one of the white hoses is for the cow water and the
other is for the plants at the rear of the house.
Here I added the quick connectors to the hoses to make
it even easier, every evening around 5 pm I top off the cows water, now
it's very simple and easy
To make things easier and well just so I can be lazy I rigged up a water
system we can fill both waters trophs for the cows without even putting on
These wheels make cutting the burs down easy, we added
a ziptie slidable to activate the trigger adding great ease to the job.

Harvest Ant eggs are very popular among Thais, they add them to soup,
great source of protein. To collect the eggs they use a long bamboo stick
with a bag on the end then go tree by tree, the ants make nests in the
leaves it makes sort of a oblong kind of sphere and they store their eggs
in there, then Mr. Chef comes along and destroys the house built of leaves
and the eggs fall into the bag, later that day into the soup the eggs go.
