Vegetables in 4-6 days, just add water. No sunlight or soil needed.
While doing an inventory of my food supply, I came across some mung beans I bought about 10 years ago. So I grew some bean sprouts from following this website. It is very nutritional and a low effort alternative for fresh vegetable during a food shortage. I use the webbing from a pack of garlic to use as the mesh and tie it to the bottle with some solid wires. I soaked the beans overnight and then rinse it twice a day. Keep it out of direct light. Other than that, it requires very little efforts. I had to stop after 4 days when the bottle was getting too full. Those little guys expand a lot and push very hard on the mesh.
I recommended eating it cooked as you don't want get sick. Here is one simple recipe for a stir fried noodle.
Flat hook for DIY mask
I made a HKMask for personal protection. I am not a arts and craft person, so I had to make do with what I have. I modified the design as I don't have any thin elastic bands. I do have a lot of fat ones from my grocery.
I use the I core from old transformer to make a flat hook and a AWG10 solid wire (household wiring) for the loop. The rubber band is very strong, so it is important to have the right cord lengths for comfort and fit. I crimped the 2mm paracord gently during length adjustment. Once the adjustment is done, I crimped tightly to hold it in place.
Thin metal such as I/O expansion covers from cheap PC case or transformer cores is used for the hook.
Alternatively, the hook can be made from wire.
One source of those nose clip wires:
Good cookies and come with a bonus: a flat clip for resealing the bag. It is plastic coated with 2 wires on the edges.
Be safe out there! Here is one music video from our Prime minister's daily address.
