So I woke up this morning to an extra $1200 that I didn't plan on having and the "General", aka my wife, said I could spend it however I like. Usually I have a list a mile long of things I want but don't have the money. Today I can't seem to think of a way to spend it. Of course my first thought is to spend it on some new grow tech.

Here is a list of the things I currently have grow tech wise

Greenhouse, 14x16 heated, 1000W HPS - just about out of room for anything else inside

Grow room 6x6 with (2) 4ft 4 bulb T8s

Troy Built Horse ( old school ) Tiller

So some of the things I have been considering buying/building

Outdoor ebb/flow system
600 HPS for the grow room
Cloner ( Not sure about this one, I suck at cloning so far )
New tiller, like a BCS

Unfortunately the one thing I really want/need is 4-5 acres to grow on, I don't think $1200 is going to get it!

So what would you all do with the money?

Yep, thats where I picked up my Horse with a brand new 8HP engine for $200. The only thing I would ever trade my Horse for would be a BCS.... they are super bad-a$$.

Yeah a BCS is way more but $1200 would be nice down payment. I cant put up another greenhouse this year, the first one was a nightmare.

Anyone know what this is really worth? I am considering making an offer, it definitely is newer and has alot more bells and whistles than my horse. I think $1600 is a little high.

if you don't have to have anything and there are things you just want....put the money away until you really need it...just my 2 cents

That is basically the conclusion I came to as well. Probably going to put it away and take my family on a vacation in a couple of months. You're a wise man AJ!
