Day 117: More Fruit

by Cory on August 13, 2018

I finally found pollinated tomatoes on the other varieties!

Garden treasure 1 has been flowering consistently for a few weeks and I was getting worried because it seemed like nothing was getting pollinated. But now I see like 3 or 4 pea...

What Makes a Tree a Tree?

I didn't realize that it is so hard to come up with a technical definition of "tree". Huh. (Read More)

    Some Visual Shit

    by Cory on August 10, 2018

    I was working on prefabs not making any progress and hating it when I just decided to work on adding animations because it's about time.

    Check it out.

    I added some quick and dirty movement code to hook it up to the keyboard. Also I added a men...

    I ate that ripe tomato today. I left to ripen on the counter with a mango, a peach, and a nectarine.

    You can see that the rot is actually starting to creep up on the ripe part.

    I cut it open and got rid of the rotten part. It was black up in t...

    Day 111: A Red Tomato

    by Cory on August 7, 2018

    Remember that ripening tomato? Well, I went outside today to check on it and it was gone! I was pissed at first because I thought some birds might have seen it and eaten it, but I was scanning underneath the bridge just in case. After like 10 minu...

    Day 109: Thinking About the Next Season

    by Cory on August 5, 2018

    I noticed today that the oldest tomato on garden gem 1 is turning red. This is cool I guess. It's too bad it has blossom end rot and that it's like the size of a ping pong ball. These tomatoes are going to be horribly small and probably won't tast...

    Day 104: Keep On Going

    by Cory on July 31, 2018

    Here's the (probably) dead garden gem 0 looking all fucked up and shitty.

    Notice the dark raisin-y tomatoes.


    And this is garden gem 1, which actually has a lot of budding tomatoes on it now. I'd say like maybe 10 fruit? Anyway, the one in t...

    Day 103: FUCK

    by Cory on July 30, 2018

    So I have been holding off on watering and refilling the resevior over the weekend because I think I overwatered the plants. Garden gem 0 is most likely dead. It's super wilted and the tomatoes are starting to look dark and raisin-y.

    All the othe...

    Day 99: Blossom End Rot

    by Cory on July 26, 2018


    The biggest tomato on garden gem 1 has started to develop blossom end rot. I'm pretty sure it's because I overwatered them a couple days ago. This is hard. I'm going to figure out how much water to give to these tomatoes. I guess it is bett...

    Day 96: Fucking Buckets

    by Cory on July 23, 2018

    I bought two more metal pails today. They're 2 and a half gallons each. So I figure if I have 3 buckets that I can fill with river water in the morning, I have just over a gallon per planter. And this means I won't have to lug water back and forth...

This is a basic and outdated book but it's good for learning about perl and html request interactions. It's another textbook though so that was kind of boring to read.

Snow Crash

Neal Stephenson

This was ok. It gives me a super Neuromancer feel crossed with Idiocracy which is cool. The characters Hiro and Raven are cool too. It gets kind of fan fic -y with Hiro's samurai swords and Y.T.
