Hey! Potatoes!

First harvest - red potatoes

First harvest - red potatoes

Yep, first out of the garden, just a few weeks after going into the ground, I’ve got fresh red new potatoes. These were literally hanging out at the surface of the soil – I spotted them when doing a bit of supplementary watering. And joy of joys, it appears we might get a small smattering of rain tonight – I hear the thunder bearing down on us. The radar confirms that rain is nearly here … but often it seems to split north and south, and miss us altogether. We haven’t had any rain to speak of in perhaps three weeks. All the lawns are brown. Anyway, I’m pleased about the potatoes. Now, back to Oracle database work for school.

There be tomatoes here

It makes me happy to find the first tomatoes set in the garden. The basil is going like gangbusters, too. Just thought I’d share that snap. Back later.

Yeah, I’ve always wanted to have my own little bit of Slash* over here.

If you’re looking for the older stuff, you can start over there, on the Site Map. Search on the main site is currently broken, and that’s on my to-do list.

So, WordPress reappears on the OrbDesigns site. I’m going to be moving Marcia over to WP soon, and figured I’d better be using it first. Hmmm … what about pictures?
