SmileNo water in australia


Here is what a fello just wrote in another forum , directly form Australia.

People used to complain about the weather here- too grey, too cold, too wet etc. Now, I don't think you'd find anyone who complains about a bit of rain. The drought seems to have broken in some parts (maybe NSW and southern Queensland), and it didn't happen in the tropics (Northern Territory and the top of WA and Queensland) as far as I know, but the south of the country has been very dry for years. We are building a desalination plant, and looking at other

Ole mother nature is tricky.

Hi;
hydroponics uses a lot less water and you get bumper crops every time if you do the work.

Hi;
Again you can make your own systems for hydroponics and grow food,flowers.ect.
You can feed your whole house with fresh veg.daily and flowers to look at.
cost is cheap if you build your own growing system.
