Sensor Plug review along with golf cart sticking in the mud

Sunflower plants as a cover crop, new methods of getting unstuck, and a technical update on the motion activated deer deterrent are just a small sample of what Anna and Mark have been up to this past week. They share a little bit every day at their blog they call WaldenEffect.org. What pays the bills for them is a new kind of automatic chicken waterer they build and sell along with DIY kits that make keeping chickens 10 times easier.
