Just in case you wanted to look at the things that I've been making as of late, check out my art blog for regular postings of daily sketches and drawings. My new end of summer mantra is this:

The Red Bank/Erie Food Forest plot is a somewhat troubled site. Because it doesn't have any city water attached to it it is completely dependent on rainwater -- of which we've had very little for the majority of the summer. As of now, it looks really great and green because we've had rain off and on the last couple weeks. Yesterday we went out and readied the area for an art project that will combine the arts and agriculture. The round tilled area will be planted with a paw paw colony (a native fruit tree to Southwest Ohio). We removed a lot of rotting logs that were used for hügelkultur beds, weeded, leveled the area and then tilled.

In the middle of August I collected some asparagus seeds from a female asparagus plant. A week later I planted them, unsure of what would happen: germination? failure? Anything was possible. So when the first asparagus germinated I squealed with delight!

I've been feeling very non-commital to my blog layout and design lately. I'll be playing around with the look and feel of my blog for a bit longer until I've found something I enjoy. In other news, I just read Youth in Revolt by C.D. Payne and I highly recommend it. I haven't laughed that hard since I read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson.
