First Home Photoshoot

Alas, another cold has it’s painful talons on my throat. As much as I love Colorado, a TINY bit more humidity in the air in the winter wouldn’t be the worst…. So, I’ve been sleeping. I’ll get a hold of some halloween weekend photos to post soon, but in the meantime, here is a collection […]

This tutorial is a bit icky, but oh so rewarding… killing massive amounts of fruit flies. Can you see them at the bottom of that cup? More pictures at the bottom. Call me a weird person for being so excited about it, but man do I dislike those things. Colorado doesn’t get much for bugs, […]

Frost-Proofing the Roof Garden

So the timing of this post is off. Talking about frost in July? It is Colorado, but I’m not too worried about it. It was, however, a crazy spring, and it seems better to get this seed planted (pun intended) in your brain so when you have your own pallet garden and you get that […]
