I thought about doing another tinkering project (maybe those with clay could look more like making?).
So here is my project of vertical vegetable garden:
Rainwater is collected (it would be interesting to apply those nets to catch droplets if there was a lack of water, and then to condense them) which, if in excess, can in turn be channeled into a special cistern (to irrigate / water).
The idea came to me thanks to the sore throat, which “forced” me to do the aerosol: the cardboard of the vials, making it rotate, reminded me of a series of channels.
Materials: cardboard, vinyl glue, wooden stick, piece of syringe for water collection (with integrated rain gauge), empty rubber thread inside to simulate tubes, clutches, paper scotch, soil collected from a flower pot , a piece of coating of a larger tube to simulate a container / tank for collecting water.
Since I also have a fever, you could also put an outdoor thermometer, and, why not, a more complete control unit to detect humidity, pressure, wind …
It was fun to build this object even if I overturned (initially the structure was not very stable and too full) the soil on the table risking to go to the PC keyboard.
Design and construction time: very fast, if you find the pieces you need right away!
The most frustrating part of the project? Having to clean up and tidy up (I advise not to use the kitchen table as a work surface, but to work directly on the floor on a tray or a cardboard or a newspaper: I used a cork board)
