So I've been surprised with how well this Solo Cup garden is doing. There have been maybe 3 gnats that have come and gone, but no thrips or whiteflies to be seen. The temperature in my bedroom has been between 70 and 77, because at night I am still running a/c. The humidity varies also, because I don't have a dehumidifier. Still, I am having some ups and downs in some of the Solo cups that have been unexpected, mainly because of stupid mistakes I've made. Take a look...

Everything has been planted. What and why am I planting in Solo cups to begin with? I discuss that here.

I've always been of the mindset to let nature take care of itself and let the strong survive. But we are in unnatural conditions for the third winter in a row, with temperatures that feel like summertime during the day and winter at night. The neighborhood birds need help finding food. So I put out lots of mealworms and birdseeds and nuts. There is no editing. Nothing fancy. This was a couple weeks ago, and I'm clearing my camera out. I'd forgotten I recorded this.

We've been busy trying to get pallets situated so that we can get the pallet shed started, along with raised beds, fences, and a few other pallet wood projects. I would really love a greenhouse made of pallets, but I have my eyes on a high tunnel that is about to go to a lower price. Isn't it weird that just as people need green houses, retailers put them on sale because they are considered "garden" items instead of realizing that's where they'd profit most? I'm grateful for seasonal merchandising.
The video below was recorded shortly after we tried the pallet buster (Ed made a video on it). It is not heavily edited.
I am looking forward to meeting some of you in the next few months!
