Restarting the blog…
It’s been a long time…
For those who used to follow this website, back 2010, I discovered for myself the lost science of electroculture – the science of improving crop growth with electricity. At that time, after running my first experiment – growing some cabbage and romanesco broccoli, my passion became ignited with amazement how electricity can produce amazing effects of growth acceleration within just a few weeks. I took that passion and turned it into my first deep-dive project…. a book detailing the subject for the average person looking to understand this “new” world of electric agriculture. I had a mailing list where I shared articles, tips and insights that myself and others gleaned from our own experiments. And it was a lot of fun!
A dysfuntional partnership
Well, about 4 years ago, I met someone from the mailing list who was interested in doing some joint development with me. I thought I was doing all the right things… I took my time, got to know him, hired a lawyer to write up an agreement for both of us, and I was excited about being off to the races with a partner who was slated to invest a ton of money with me and work with me together on taking things to the next level. Without going into the details, despite being wowed at the synchronicity behind our initial meeting with his partner at the time, I didn’t trust my instinct at that initial meeting which said, “I don’t have a good feeling here”. His partner had a great vibe; perhaps what the synchronistic meeting was really about. Nonetheless, the next 2 1/2 years was a rough ride… which not only was difficult for the business (we broke up), it was hard for myself personally as well as my family. In the end, I felt a lot of regret about the path I took.
Back to what made me happy
As of a few weeks ago, I realized that my happiness with all of this came not from the journey of developing a cool, high-tech product… but from sharing the knowledge I was discovering long ago with people all around the world who found this topic just as intriguing as I did. I loved helping students with science-fair projects and seeing the results of their efforts in their final reports, to helping the countless gardeners and commercial growers who were curious, just like me and wanted to learn more. I also loved doing experiments myself and using this medium to expand my curiosity and as well as my creativity.
At this time, I have finally come full circle and look forward to reconnecting with all of you from years’ past, and also everyone else who finds my site for the first time.
