June already??
As I listen to the rain outside, it's hard to believe that Summer is supposed to be here....

Just to let folks who watch this silly journal know that I actually have been busy in RL and not just infrequently posting because I'm easily distracted, I've been trying to build a habit of "publishing" photos to my MobileMe Gallery under various project names, with descriptions for the curious.

http://gallery.me.com/khromat#100062 <-- Project SpiceRack, a repurposing project turning a Typesetter's die drawer into a Spice Rack. 

http://gallery.me.com/khromat#100045 <-- My ongoing Gardening project.  We have a substantial back yard that's terraced, and I've been slowly civilizing the wilderness into a bio-intensive eco-happy mini-farm.

(If you go to the main gallery area of mine, you will see there are *two* galleries for each of the above, because I had a harddrive failure on my Macbook Pro and as a result cannot update the original directories-- that's why I'm listing the specific numbers for the active folders here).

I will eventually get stuff onto FA or even perhaps DeviantArt (I had an account there once, but completely forgot it), as I am slowly getting back into drawing, but most of my artistic energy at the moment is focused on helping out Momma Mel. and her Coyote webcomic, which will soon see the light of print!

Wow- you've done a lot since I was last over there. Grats! Hope to see you in RL sometime soonish. Things have been crazy here.

Coyote going to be printed though Radio, someone else or just a little self published thing like her ashcans?

You'd have to ask Mel about that one, as I don't know the details. I'm just inking. :)

It sounds like you're keeping busy as usual. Thank you for posting the photos of the garden. What is a grow sack?

Grow Sack

Based off an idea gardeners in England have been doing, Gardener's Supply Company has made different sized polyethylene-fabric bags to grow different kinds of vegetables without the need of a plot of soil. The fabric 'air trims' the roots, and the different sizes allow the different root-depths of various plants.

Details can be found on their website: http://www.gardeners.com

That is a humongous and lovely spice rack. <3

When it's all assembled, there will be 63 spaces for spices.... so it won't hold my entire collection but will put a good dent in it. :)

How does my garden grow?

We have a ton of stuff growing.... not including the tomatoes growing on the side of the house (those are Bennie and Orrin's plots), I've got the following:

6 varieties of sweet peppers
2 varieties of corn
4 varieties of lettuce
2 varieties of spinach
2 varieties of broccoli
2 varieties of basil
3 varieties of peas
2 varieties of beans
4 varieties of melons
2 varieties of summer squash
3 varieties of onions
10 varieties of tomatoes
2 varieties of potatoes

1 artichoke
1 purple cauliflower
4 raspberry bushes

That's not including the fruit trees that were already here: 2 pears, 2 cherries, 1 naval orange, 1 lime, 1 pomegranate, and several peach trees.
