I'm An Inventor!

It was time to give my little seedlings some much needed ventilation. But I ran out of room to put the box fan on a table top or shelf, on the floor wouldn't give the seedlings on the shelf much air movement, soooooo... ingenious Lanny hung it, with, of all things, bailing twine. (You can do very little here at Victory Farm and Gardens without bailing twine, it's sorta mandatory.)

When I turned on the fan I realized I had better than a fan, I had a swirling fan, spreading fanness everywhere! Go through the pictures really fast and you'll see what I mean.

Uh, hold it a sec,

Is that an oscillating stand fan in the background?
.
Sure nuf is.

Just sittin' back there, doin' nuthin', not plugged in, not working. But I'm sure it wudda worked if I had tried it.

Oh, well just 'cause I didn't need to invent a twirling spinning fanning thing doesn't mean I didn't.

That was very entertaining.

Neat! I noticed in the background your shelves are so neat and organized! I wish I could say the same about storage in my house!

Sometimes all that spinning makes the twine break and down comes the fan, string and all.

I hope it all works to the end.

Nice blog.

Baling twine, I think most of America's farms are held together by baling twine and duct tape! And why not..they both come is great new, trendy colors now and are cheap and practical..and really do help with the creative and inventive mind on a budget!

An inventor indeed - sometimes of stories and sometimes of slowly rotating fans (whether you needed to or not - you did it). Funny Lanny - very funny.

Tipper said...

You are inventive!! And I went through the pics real fast!!

OKay I'll admit it I scrolled through the pictures really fast (twice) and laughed both times. But not as hard as when you pointed out the oscillating fan.

You are a renaissance person! (renaissance "man" or woman!). Well, I guess necessity is the mother of invention. Maybe you ought to refine and patent it.

You were just thinking outside the box (fan). tee hee
