    Hi dear TwiV professors, I missed Dickson in the podcast, This is more a message for him. I recently got a alien robot looking thing called a farmstand to grow some herbs and vegetables, from, it’s been less than 3 weeks, and I have already harvested lettuce, kale and chards. The cilantro was attacked and eaten by my dog Ruby so I had to put up a gate on the deck to protect the vegetables. The farmstand I got only has two levels of 6 plants growing spots each, but you can have 6 levels for 36 plants. It was odd that only last night I realized this is vertical farming! and then I wondered if Dickson knew about it. I went to his web site and saw it has not been updated in recent years, so maybe Dickson hasn’t heard of it. I just want to let you all know vertical farming is happening, and growing. I hope Dickson is doing well and painting.

    Thank you for all your podcasts, I have listened to the first 200 or so by now, after getting started on TwiV about a year ago.
