Compost garden going in. :)

Image

Top layer regular compost.
Hay
Thinner layer 60% herbavore manure / 40% compost.
Bottom layer Lucerne hay (hay in molasses to get the engine going first year).

Planting dense and mixed. Dense to cut off real estate and light for weeds, and mixed to confuse pests. Build it once, then just keep adding regular household compost thereafter... hopefully in a few years the engine will be running and the garden will be self-seeding in heaven(ly soil). :)

Swiss chard
spring onions,
tomatos,
parsley,
tomatos
snow peas
beans
broccoli
zhuchinnihoweveruspellit
squash
peppers
markot (carrots)
and maybe some other stuff.

The speakers shine out from the front porch, about 20 feet (7m) apart, onto the garden area :) Yup we had Zappa out there, building it right, (and Eric Burdon. and BB King so far).

So that's always fun :)


I thought it was the Hokule'a, baddy...

Bought a CD by a local band for 50 cents at the second hand store. Turns out to be pretty OK.

Bought my kid a laptop for graduation from high school. Here's hoping he uses it for something other than porn.

Got some cool vinyl in the mail this morning :)

RIP Mr. Peterson, thanks for inventing metal, (or acid-rock as we called it back when).

Hey baddy, Gary Lee Yoder's a friend here in Davis. Knew his brother Mark too. Just talked to him at the local Grocery Outlet the other day. 8)
Was Dickie Peterson in KAK at anytime, or live in the KAK house in the Haight?
BTW, Oxford Circle is a semi-circle street just off UCD campus and several groups have used that name over the years not knowing about the others. DP sure looks familiar too. Bummer to hear he's gone. :cry:

Blue Cheer played at Awalt HS back when there was Blue Cheer acid going around. Had I not moved to Bezerkeley from Los Altos I would have gone there, but I did get to see them there in '68 and they played the whole 1st album. It was heavy man, very heavy. 8) :shock:

Did DP die from The Summertime Blues? (sorry I couldn't help meself)
