We had a busy day at the off grid homestead with planting our garden and using solar power to charge up devices.

When the sun is shining it is time to use energy. We have more energy than we can use on a bright and sunny day but on a cloudy day we have to run off our battery reserves.

We got a free sitting pool at a garage sale on the holiday weekend and I used the power of the sun to run the inflator and pump it up.

The sun also powered our well pump, which is 120 volts. We can use solar or grid power as needed for this. We put some water in the pool for later use after the sun warmed it up some.

I hauled over four wheel barrow loads of chicken manure to put in our corn plot by the road. I had tilled this on Saturday and let the soil rest over the weekend. Now I put manure on the area and then left it for the day.

Later I tilled the area three more times to work the manure deeply into the earth. Then I planed a whole lot of colored corn. This is non GMO corn and will be grown organically.

Melanie was helping to plant another corn plot with purple corn.

We hope to provide most of our food needs this year with our own garden.

The fully off grid electronics shop battery bank was in float mode because the only things running are the Quanta Q3 Charge Accelerator and the Bedini motor for now. I have a single 200 watt solar panel over there but I plan to set up more panels soon.

On the off grid tiny house we also had our battery bank charging up fast after all the energy use of the day. The batteries were quickly back into float mode when we were done working.
