Meters and Blueberries

Really happy with my cheap new volt meters showing me what the house and the freezer batteries are at with just a quick glance: 



and now I have to figure out what to do with my ever-growing blueberries.  How can I protect them from the birds and the deer?  Will probably just build deer fence cover things.

Organizing the charger wiring

*Finally* got around to getting my battery chargers wired in properly.  I've been working with these things 'on the fly', just carrying them around and using jumper cables and stuff to get through the proof of concept stage.  Now that I have it all worked out, I mounted the two different battery chargers (that create 27v or 54v DC from 120 AC from the diesel gen) in the electronics area and wired them in with super thick cable.


Now I can simply start the diesel gen and plug either of these in at the outlet and charge either the house (tops out a 56.8v ) or the freezer batteries (tops out at 27.1v I think).
