Day 66: I Hung Them All

by Cory on June 24, 2018

They're all in the air now. Fucking finally. I"m exhausted.

Also I read on the internet somewhere that you should prune flowers when indeterminate plants are between 12 and 18 inches tall. Since my garden treasure is even smaller than t...

    Day 25: Rise of the Phoenix

    by Cory on May 12, 2018

    Today was a huge day! I did a tooooon of stuff and made a lot of progress. A lot of other things happened between this post and the last, but I didn't think they were worth writing a whole post for.

    Let's see what happened this week...

    1. I gath...

    Day 19: A Time To Kill

    by Cory on May 5, 2018

    I figured now was a good time to cull my plants and separate them into different pots. I thought I was prepared but it was still hard for me. :(

    First of all, when I got to the bridge today, I saw that they were sprouting their first true leaves!...

    Day 17: Tragedy Strikes in Young Paradise (For Real This Time)

    by Cory on May 3, 2018

    In the middle of a really shitty week, I walk up to the bridge and I only see two pots and my heart skips a beat. It takes a few seconds for it to sink in that one of the pots has fallen off the bridge...


    You can see the fragments of the falle...

    Wow What the Fuck

    by Cory on May 3, 2018

    I had the worst day yesterday. My car is in the shop for a week because there's a problem with the clutch. So I'm biking everywhere until then. It took me two hours to get to work because I got a flat tire and I missed my morning meeting (I hate a...

    Day 15: Sprouts still alive

    by Cory on May 1, 2018

    More good news! The W hybrid pot has 3 sprouts coming out now. I'm really surprised that most of these seeds managed to survive this stuff. Plants are crazy.

    Day 14: A new hope!

    by Cory on April 29, 2018

    HOLY MOTHERFUCKING SHIT my seeds germinated!

    It was only two pots in the first group on the bridge that sprouted and it took about 20 days to do it! I actually stopped watering them for a few days too because I thought they were all dead.

    You ca...

    Day 11: Tragedy Strikes in Young Paradise

    by Cory on April 26, 2018

    Oh no! I haven't seen anything from any of my seeds and I guess none of them are viable. Looking back now I think it's because I made the seed starter waaaaay too wet and patted the soil down too hard. When I tried to dig into it, the starter was ...

    Day 6: I Made a Bucket With a Rope on it!

    by Cory on April 21, 2018

    Today was extremely warm and the forecast says that the next three or four days will be sunny and warm too. I went to home depot and got me some more pots and a few tools because going down the river bank on foot to get a cup of water everyday is ...

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.

This is a textbook. It's FUCKING BORING. But it picks up somewhat after Ch. 5 and has some really good ideas in it. I begrudgingly have to keep this book on my shelf.
