John is building an oasis in West Texas about an hour south of Alpine, Texas. He calls his project "Southwest Texas Alternative Energy and Sustainable Living Field Laboratory". He writes a daily blog about his work and life. I read it and enjoy it. All kinds of technical projects and great photographs. You can reach his blog at The Field Lab.
John can also call wild long horn cows out of the wild and have them eat out of his hand!
Here comes one.
John has a way with cows!
Watch out when she swings those sharp horns! OK, I will confess. The cow is Benita, an old friend of John's.
John's oasis is going to be centered in the structure he is building with storage crates at each corner. He is building that roof all by himself. It is going to be a greenhouse. Part of the roof will be translucent. He is setting up a large water storage system.
