Sometimes I find dead things more interesting than live things.
A beer trade from last year for #throwbackthursday. A gentleman from Illinois offered to trade with me over Twitter and I happily accepted. That Wild Sour and the Trebuchet DIPA were the bomb! I had been wanting to try the Citra Ninja for a while, but unfortunately I sort of… forgot that I had it. We have a lot of beer, okay? We ended up drinking it several months later, and while it was good, it wasn’t the citra hop-bomb that I’m sure it would have been if we had it fresh. I know, it’s a crime against hoppy beers. Hopefully we’ll have a chance to try it again one day.
My #sarracenia are getting too big for their britches! Already thinking of repotting plants for next season. Apartment living doesn’t make it easy. This pot sits atop our patio fence for them to receive full sun (luckily we face south and aren’t too shaded). I put the pot on the ground to water and put it back on the fence when I’m done. It’s already a heavy motherfucker and I’ll definitely need a bigger one next season. I think this pot is 10” and I’ll probably use a 16” next. I need to rig a shelf and/or work on my deadlifts and overhead press, bro.
Completely out of context Crop of the Week.
That does it, robin! I’m sick of your godawful cheerful chirping and your bright blue eggs and your nest-building skills! I don’t have enough blood on my starchy white linens, hands and face so let’s do this shit.
Happy lithops vs. Sad lithops. Multiple days of 100 F weather have not been kind to my new succulents. I’ve shaded them and given them a small bit of water. Hopefully they’ll recover!
Sansa checking to make sure nothing dangerous is in my box. Good job protecting your mama, Sansa!
Pot of adult typical #venusflytraps. Some of these are clones of very first Venus Flytrap from about five years ago. I will probably divide these up and sell/give away some at the start of the next growing season. Look out for a post around February/March 2015!
New air plant with a buddy in its new hanging terrarium!
Internet gift exchanges are so much fun! Here’s a few highlights from my Summer Santa this year. I wish I got photos of the box I sent out. It was almost as cool as this one! Lots of first time nail polish and skincare brands for me in this one. Plus you can’t beat a chocolate candle.
I want to read this book! Where can I find it? Does it tell of certain strange women lyin’ in ponds creating bases of systems of government?
Triops longicaudatus, sometimes sold as aquarium pets under the name triops or aquasaurs.
I have wanted triops as pets for years. Their life span is under two months, though. That’s quite a cycle of heartache if one becomes attached.
