That way a garden COULD be transported.

Ohh that is a good Idea.

I'd consider including a trailer-mounted outhouse, too; since you'll be digging in there anyway. :roll:

I don't think it's a good idea to put that online. WHO KNOWS who's checking? I love big-caliber and longe-range rifles and 1911 pistols, and I've got a few.

Next Firearm:
I can always use another 1911.

You know? A hydroponic greenhouse on a trailer would work fairly well in a sealed circulatory system, less weight than dirt, less issues, and the axle can charge a battery to power the pump...

For winter ops, you'll probably need to insulate the underside of the trailer to at least some degree. If it's up on a trailer, you have more heat loss out the bottom than a "real" greenhouse.

Lowes and Home Depot have some nice transparent and or transluscent panels that are light enough for such a project. Use the slightly more expensive polycarbonate ones for the front end though. I'll have to tell about the shower trailer project we had for 2 week group camping trips. :)

Amongst our weaponry are such diverse elements as fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope, and nice red uniforms!

However...for now, let's jut say I'm exercising my second amendment rights, m'kay?
