The garden

Today we planted a garden.

We had three rail road ties out front that were penning in an African Sumac tree.  I pulled them round side of the house and created a 13′ by 3′ area.  Tilled the soil, added about 4″ of compost and garden soil, and wala…instant garden.
We planted chives, beets, onions, cabbage, lettuce, peppers, broccoli, and brussell sprouts.  Mmmm…..

On the subject of outdoors…

The bamboo is going gang busters!  It’ really filling in.  I’ll try to post photos somewhere…

Photos…ok…So I’ve been dicking around with Drupal lately trying to come up with a better CMS for my mom’s website.  I think I might go ahead and use it for my own.  or maybe maintain my .net site and use it for  It has a gallery2 and livejournal plugin/module thing.  I could post there my blog and my photos in one clean…cough…app.  Kevin thinks of it as a huge memory hog, but if I’m not maintain a community there and just posting myself, it’ll likely be ok.

Back to garden…the trees out back are a mess.  We had a tree surgeon come by and give us a complete evaluation.  We have to pull out 3 trees, and seriously doctor one of them.  $1,100
 total. oi.  ah well, the joys of being in debt…hehe…I mean ownership 🙂

Anyway…that’s the update for now.

    Sounds beautiful 🙂

    Drupal, huh? Huh. … huh.

    I’ve really come to hate gallery2, but maybe I just don’t understand it well enough. There certainly isn’t another thing I like better, that I know of, yet. I’d love to know more about the livejournal plugin/module thing, though.

    Trees–yeesh! I’ve got one I need to pull, just growing on its own way too close to the driveway. Some day the soil is moist and the wind is down and the sun’s not to bad (read: never, or nearly never… but I really need to do something about it before it’s beyond my ability to). I got a nice pick and shovel just for it (nearly). I’d love to _move_ it, but … odds of that are slim to none.
