In Light of Earth Day, Watch me Point at Things.

In light of Earth Day i am going to link a couple of videos that i made last Friday. I did tweet them so if you are a tweep and you already saw them then there is nothing new for you here. But if you haven’t seen them they are not bad.

The first one here is a little shaky but YouTube is “fixing” it as i write this so i hope that it wont be too bad for you soon.

Pre-Strawberries

Post-Strawberries.

Also the spinach has started to poke up in the purple bed and i did go ahead and fill the grey bed with peppers, yeah ghost Habanero. So much fiery goodness.

More Strawberries and other Trees?

Last spring the wife and i bought a Pine Tree, not a huge one. It was somewhere in the 2-3 feet tall range with the idea that it would be mostly an inside tree and would also double as our Christmas tree. But it didn’t do so hot and died. But having that tree spawned the idea of adding other trees to the yard and house.

Rewind as few weeks back when we were looking at Cherry trees we also looked at some smaller inside/outside trees like the Meyer Lemon tree. The idea was that a patio tree would be ideal for our needs. But we passed.

Tangy yellow stuff.

Fast forward to yesterday, when the wife gets an email letting her know that the web site where we bought the cherry tree, http://www.fast-growing-trees.com/ was having a one day 50% off sale. So as we tend to do we started to put together an order.

The we started looking and we noticed that the sale was taking 50% more off then what we thought the sale price was…. So we started looking around for more things to buy, i mean there are always more things to buy right?

 

And we landed on 100 strawberry plants. Because we really love strawberries. …

 

Meaning that this weeks project is not xping Samius, but taking pallets and making an A frame planter.

Pallets! Aka transportation leftovers.

A few boards and some rain gutters. Seems easy enough.

I want something small enough that i can move it into the greenhouse this winter but tall enough to keep the chicks from eating all the fruits of my labor.

After all i need to end up with something that looks like this, right?

As usual i will let you know how things are going once in progress.
