the gathering place for my rants and raves and discourses on the movement to sustainability based on the excesses of others
the Trash vitae
Trash is the editor-in-chiefof an independent Colorado micro-publisher/ design studio. I dabble in digital photography, the lost art of film image making, and guerilla digital video. DrMAC Studios specializesin books and videos on self-reliance, gardening, dumpster diving, urban foraging and living off the excesses of others. This blog documents my daily experiences with the rest of the world
I spent the morning working in the garden. Potted up the last of the 1st round of tomatoes. Groomed the beds and watered the plants. All before 10am.
Came inside and found a newer 9cd set of Janis Joplin treasures. Blow all my blues Away. Some seriously good listening. Adding that to the Bob Dylan Biograph 3 cd set that Lloyd suggested in a post a cuppla weeks ago. Good stuff. If only people would listen to the old stuff they would see how this new stuff originated. I love it. Music soothes the savage Trash
I was out working in the garden yesterday and came across some pretty purple heads sticking thru the ground.. What a lovely site indeed. NIce big ol fat radishes ready to enjoy.. 1st radish harvest of the season.. yumyum.
What with mothers day last weekend and working in the garden I did not have a chance to post. I added a cuppla bags of manure and compost to the raised beds in prep for putting the veggies in. I still have a few more bags to get. I will also be experimenting with a new organic potting soil that is supposed to be good for the plants. Includes natural food in the soil. We shall see on a couple of tomato plants and such.
I have been going over several projects I hope to accomplish this summer. We will see as time progresses which ones come to fruition.
Last evening I was sitting on my couch havin some pork rinds and water when a speck of pawk went down the wrong tube and caused ol Trash to lose the air passage for a bit.. Scary stuff. Mrs T came to my rescue and Heimmliched me and we were able to get my passage open again.. amen. Thanx Mrs T. Ya never know how important breathing is until you cant..
Spent the weekend with MrsT cleaning out the garage and getting the rest of the stead in Spring shape. Supermoon was a bust as we got treated instead to a lightning and thunder show, small hail and a nice rain on Saturday night. Sunday was spent in the garden and on the garage retrofit again.
Watched a few old episodes of the Beverly Hillbillies on youtube. Worked on old Dumpie bike (needed a new brake pad) and then went over to the Wallie world for refried beans, torts, taco sauces and goodies for a Sunday easy dinner. My oh my. Now its back to Babylon for another week.
BTW I also picked up some Bush bean seeds while I was at the Wallie. Seems I cant find my stash of them last year.
