As I mentioned in my previous post, the West is taking a slower, less obvious trajectory, but things like this are the early warning signs we should be paying attention to as we evaluate the merits of various technological innovations.
This past spring our trampoline was a victim of Oklahoma storm season. However, we were able to salvage the netting that went around it that keeps people from falling off the sides. This evening, I found a use for it – shade cloth for the fall planting of beans and squash.
We’re still reaching mid-to-high 90’s here in Oklahoma, but it’s time to get seeds in the ground for the fall garden. As a result, we were able to repurpose the netting as shade cloth (and partial insect protection).
Not sure how it will work, but it’s definitely worth a shot.
Started working on the first draft of a new(ish) novel last night. It’s not a completely new story, rather, I took the screenplay I wrote, turned a few characters and plot points on their head and have started work on a semi-adaptation of the story. Same world, different protagonist, roughly plotted as a three book series. Anxious to see how it goes.
