Day 29 – Automation

Ultimate Blog Challenge Day 29

So today we are supposed to talk about automation in our business. I really can’t say that I automate anything. I even have to go out every day (several times a day during the summer months) to make sure that everyone has water. I guess on the blog side of things I do automate my posts. I set aside time once a week to write everything for the week and use later and the schedule feature to put them out on the days they go.

There are several things on the farm side that I would like to automate but I don’t know if that will ever happen or not because things like that are usually pretty expensive. We are working on automating the watering of the garden though so that we don’t have to go out and do that every day, twice a day.  We are looking at making a drip system for the garden and other plants around the property so that we can set it on a timer and let it go.

I would love to be able to get the animal water on automation. Maybe a float in the buckets or something along those lines to make sure everyone’s water troughs stay full all the time. I know that I will still have to go out at least once a week to ensure algae doesn’t build up. But compared to watering every day twice or more times a day it would be nice to only have to worry about them once or twice a week.

I’m sure there are other things around here to could be automated, but we are not there yet. We do hope to be, but it’s gonna take a little time.

What are some of the things that you automate? Leave a comment below and let me know.

Have a great day!
