A Tiny Life.

Going to be building this aquaponic growbed in my precious 2 weeks before school! I’ve already assembled all the necessary materials. Now all there is to do is…to do it! Now you, dear reader, need only sit back and wait for the next installment!

Plant of the Day
Saturday 10 May 2014

In this local garden at Wickham Bishops in Essex the lily of the valley, Convallaria majalis proves it has a rhizomatous stem as it follows the gaps in the paving! The plant will grow in semi or full shade and appreciates a moist root run. After flowering there are red berries. So sorry the blog does not do scent as this was amazing and must waft into the house.

I really visited to see the famous 250 foot long wisteria more of that tomorrow…

Unintentional beauty!

"Got Pallets? Hate weeding? Dont feel like turning up a bunch of grass? Use a pallet as a garden bed - staple garden cloth on the backside of the pallet fill with dirt and start growing! You can also place your pallet on the ground in a rocky location rather than a grassy area, this way you will not need the garden cloth to stop the weeds and grass comin through. Please be advised: Use raw wood pallets! Some that are shipped overseas may contain chemicals." - Source

Just joined the garden club at my community college, hopefully going to provide a bit of a change to the…experience. For context: My school is a lot like Miyazaki’s Spirited Away, they take your name and you forget who you are or how long you’ve been there. If I’ve learned anything here it’s that the show Community is way more accurate than it should be.

Yep, my idea! it was originally the Greendale Grizzlys but I thought that um, well [sotto] a lot of these students have been called animals their whole lives.Dean Pelton

This design from Misty Robinson sets my imagination ablaze! I’ve been gazing long at it, imagining what floorplan tweaks I’d make if I could live in it. I would probably use the kitchen and bathroom partitions for small bedrooms, and repurpose the upstairs as an office/living area. The kitchen would be in the bottom right corner, along the wall. I like the idea of multiple people living in this small space, and for the balcony to be a communal space. It shouldn’t belong to just that one bedroom. Did I mention I love open floorplans? Because dang I love open floorplans.
