Viva Verde

We just returned from a two night trip to Silver City. I was a speaker

at the Viva Verde event on the topic of "Digital Homesteading". Pretty

much the same talk I gave at the Albuquerque dorkbot meeting earlier

this year. All the talks I attended were quite good. I enjoyed

learning about native foods, drought issues in the southwest, animal

husbandry, SIPs as a building material, and issues around biofuels. We

were a bit worried about the garden not getting watered while we were

away. No problem there. When we came home I noticed that we have

around 600 gallons of rain water in the tanks. There must have been

some serious storms for the last three days because there is water

everywhere.
