Here are the tomatoes that Amy planted a few days ago, before they grow to monstrous proportions by the end of the summer.

From personal experience, I'd expect these to grow big enough you'll never know it was originally four plants instead of one. But we did use MiracleGro once a month, water our garden every day for an hour, and hoe the weeds two or three times a week, so I'm sure that helped.

I hope to take another picture or two during the summer, which I will post here to show their progress. Amy has no idea I'm doing this, but she'll find out soon enough, as she is one of Andy's coworkers.

Putting up boundaries

The island of Winona Lake has recently sold the back field to the people living in the houses touching it, out to the middle on both sides. Most people are still in the planning stage, but some people have already gone ahead and made it clear where the lines are.

For them, the fence makes sense (hey, it rhymes!), because if I remember correctly, they're the ones who have a garden every year, and now they finally can protect it.

Bad Layout! No cookie for you!

I claim to know a lot about HTML, and I have the patience for it, but I don't have the time to fix the way this layout is not a liquid layout. My resolution is 800x600, and I always have to scroll horizontally, but the CSS is defined in PIXELS! Really, who does that? Now I could go through and try to change everything to percentages (or smaller pixels, but I don't really like doing that).

Hmm, have I mentioned this before? (checking older posts, yup, right there last November.) Maybe this is why I rarely post. I'll get it fixed... someday.

Random update (month-old pictures)

So I was doorhanging the other day for work, and I saw this house with a blue tarp over the chimney. I'd never seen that before, but I guess it's to keep the rain out or something. As long as they remember to take it off before lighting a fire. Yikes!

Ah, waiting for a train... in the rain... In a different context, that could mean something entirely different. I have a video of this too, which includes me driving the last block to my house (nothing like waiting for a train when you're a block from home) but it's not very interesting, and probably dangerous to do while driving anyway, so I won't post anything incriminating.
