Once again the papers and books pile up while I focus on the task du jour, getting the garden planted, cleaned up, preened, weeded and planned.
Significant news on the hydroponic front. The heirloom tomato plant I’ve kept inside has flowers. That means tomatoes sometime in the near future. Most of the early work with the hydroponics has come to fruition, literally. I eat a salad from it at least every other day and the tomato plant flourishes. Three tomato plants, four cucumbers, six basil and four morning glories have gone outdoors.
Phase II starts soon. Phase II will see cherry tomatoes, peppers and eggplant first as seedlings, but then as plants to continue growing indoors. If this works well, we might expand the hydroponics to include flowers and more plant starting for outdoors. We’ll see.
I have two or three novels in various stages of development. Two of them, one about werewolves and the other about witches and magicians, both set in Minnesota have promise, but I’d have to get back to work on them full time. Again, I don’t seem to do it. Thinking about this because there are so many bad werewolf movies and books out there. I did, though, mention Sharp Teeth here, I believe. This one’s a keeper. Done in blank verse.
