One of the more unusual cases of “determined to be self sufficient” has pulled an interesting stunt. He’s been into growing as much as possible of his own food for years which, in and of itself is not all that remarkable. What makes this guy unusual is that he’s taken efforts to be able to produce food year round . . . by converting his in-ground pool to a greenhouse.
He’s got it covered by what looks for all the world like a bunch of hot tub covers stiched together to form a ‘lid’ for his pool. The pool itself now sports a two foot depth of the best topsoil he could find and there is a variety of vegetable crops growing in it now.
He says that this will not only allow him to grow food in winter months but it will also prevent spy satellites from spotting his greenhouse.
I didn’t have the heart to tell him that A, infrared cameras could spot it easily and B, everybody in town already knows about it and they don’t care other than to giggle a little bit.
