Your welcome, It rained hard here last night. I was excited and tried it first thing in the morning. I planted dried papaya seeds again. After like 15 times of jabbing the soil I check the mouth and there was 5 papaya seeds clinging to the opening. I guess not good for extremely wet soil. The muddy water somehow made its way in the mouth and acts like a paste where the very light weight papaya seeds stick to. But it may work if seeds is denser. maybe I will try wet papaya seeds and see if it works. Will try again this afternoon when soil is not too wet.

Hi Chris, I use to design and build customize equipment/ gadgets for some clients. I made you a drawing of what I envisioned may work for you. In this design you will be using the twisting motion of your hips with a kick from your upper leg.
While power tools is good. exercise is also important better if you are accomplishing something while working out.

I just dump spoonfuls of sugar in there. The rising bubbles is sign of liquid movement. It mix by itself to dissolve the sugar. But you can also boil it if you wish. I dont think it will change sugar properties. I use the browniest I can find My first time with kefir I also dissolve sugar in warm water, until I got lazy and found out that it works just fine:)

Here is another video. Not very clear but you get the idea. I made this because I wanted to plant fruit tree seeds in the grass land with ease and speed. The grass will give shade to the trees while young. Tree seeds planted on the midst of grasslands has a better chance than in the barren. I'm just waiting for the rain to come and I will start seeding the grasslands.

Hi There, I made a close up you tube video so you can view the construction details. Questions are welcome. If anyone wants to download the video on this thread please do so.

Hi Lif, any luck. Take a look at this video. Cooper is expensive though and needs some welding. You can also use aluminum and the manifolds can be UPVC "tee's". just use epoxy in joining. aluminum to UPVC. You can mix epoxy with wet hands for ease of working. PVC is also good but will become brittle under the sun but it takes at least 8 years in tropical areas. Also cooper is almost twice as conductive as aluminum that also means you get almost double the heat. I would not use that sort of matting on top of the tubes I think its irrelevant. You need as much area expose to sun. Also paint the tubes black.

Try posting any plans/ build you can find anywhere on the net. So some members can comment. But let me give you some important pointers. Strip all the non metallic parts of the fridge. They are not good conductors. Paint inside out with thin coat of flat black. You may want to scrape the original paint, paint is also poor conductor of heat. Hot air rises and cool air goes down. Don't think of collecting the suns heat on the air alone collecting it on metal is far better than just trying to heat up air or any material with low thermal conductivity like wood or plywood. If air is cool in your place. You have to cover the whole thing with glass or transparent plastic so that the breeze wont rob your fridge of the heat collected. put some space between the metal wall and the glass. at least half inch to 1 inch space is ideal. just post anything you can find we will try to help you.

Hey Tom, Have a look at this grass. Amazing reputation. With roots that grow vertically down up to two meters, can survive water logged or in drought. excellent soil erosion control or reclaiming. http://www.theherbcottage.com/may-2015-vetiver-grass-of-many-uses/
