I can't tell you why, but I was sure you were going to say that! LOL
regarding a subsequent upgrade. I think it's much easier than the first decision, since you've been working with x equipment for a while. You've learned what you like and don't like about it, and what you would want different, so then it becomes easier to upgrade because you simply (ok, it's maybe not simply) search for something which meets all your new specifications.

It makes a lot of sense that once I know more about my likes and dislikes that it would be easier to decide on a new machine than now, when I have never used a semi automatic.
I got everything planted and all I have to do tomorrow is put on the netting on the trellis for the tomatoes and I am done.
Now if my stupid lettuce seed would stop sitting there as little sprouts and actually grow but then my two rose bushes are going great guns and my weigela is in full bloom
I did email Chris' and he said that I would have to use the Vivaldi timer as other ones don't work with it, but he said I could get it later and install it myself, if I decide on the Mini Vivaldi.
I noticed that the Dream T has a built in timer and the software can be updated with an SD card but I am a little concerned about more electronics. I probably shouldn't be as it does seem that Chris doesn't sell machines that haven't been tested for reliability.
I had emailed Clive Coffee and was told that they had never had a warranty return on the Mini Vivaldi so that sure says a lot about reliability.
