today's dirt pic brings us into the greenhouse on a mid winter afternoon. finally got around to cleaning out the last of the tomatoe etc vines. under no delusion this is "tidy" but it's heaps nicer and much new airspace. let's say a cleanish slate for spring...

potted some fruit grafts that I dont think are going into the ground this month up on the bench. did get some new grapes in the ground earlier this week to fill in a few empty spots in the grape rows. next week we are transplanting a number of semi mature but not thiving plums and apricots to a new space they may like more and backfliing apples and pears in their place where we have excellent production.

proactively seeded one side of the big raised bed with some cold friendly stuff to pop up as it can.

will need more aerial supports as the figs along the right side keep growing.

left side is lots of potted shelter and xmas tree conifers from seed, a couple of mini olive trees.

at the back mandarin and lemon.

garden hard!

a very pleasant to all from the of finca controlfreak

they spent the afternoon supervising my labour in the greenhouse and pouncing absolutely nothing in the sun.

perched above is Shadow the mum, scouting below is Doom Kitty the bub.

@thegibson for hacker karaoke I am expecting nothing short of a kazoo rendition of halcyon on and on with an interpretive dance conveyance of the opening credits. break a leg. kazoo the planet!

just in case there is a pos human on the other end of the phishing txts, I like to shoot back quotes from Napolean Dynamite.

This handsome such and such has been dilogently trying for a few years but starting spinning wheels so to speak. Some others have crapped out alltogether so I've cut my losses, took what i could to empty a short row and slotted them in along with a few new grafts to fill the other rows. This year we had our first eating grapes and I'd like to keep that line graph climbing.

garden hard

Around the property report. 8 straight days of rain absolutely wrekt the grounds. Had a day of sun so was out chopping firewood then Sun/Mon honestly the scariest 48 hours of sustained gale winds (definiemtely hit more than 140kph) I've ever seen given it coming from a non dominant direction avoiding our mature shelter belts and build angles to deflect. Luckily it only smashed one platic chicken mash fed bin and 4 clear plastic roof panels on the greenhouse. Fine they are cheap and breaking them is better than a metal roof taking off. Animals and humans unscathed. Not too bad other than 600 trips outside to keep the hatches battened. Safe today to get up and patch with some recycled iron sheets that should be fine in limited quantity.

Garden hard?

at this point in the relentless battle for shit to make any sense I am almost unsurprised an org fighting for digital rights and whistleblower protection wants you to dox your references up front in a job appilcation via open email before they have had a single chat with you...

I mean, regardless of the outfit, out of respect for the people who help you with a reference I never include that blindly until there is an actual desire to contact them.

I'm frantically scanning the radio dial but no one is giving away a trip to Fhloston Paradise. This is some bullshit.

while I would punch a duck in the teeth to have or even just play some of the modern Stern revival movie and band property machines like tron legacy, rush, the star wars stuff. These just aren't that really accessible to most of the world anymore.

To that end, what are some of your favourite to play or look at pre-millenium Pinballs?

I'll start:

1. Tie between Indiana Jones and Dr Who "quickly it's a second chance!"- while at uni we constantly ditched classes to go play these tables

2. Fish Tales

3. High Speed and to a lesser degree The Getaway

4. Twilight Zone

5. Cyclone/Comet/Hurricane series maybe throw Funhouse in there too

Honourable mentions
for older with great ramps: Flash Gordon

for awesome art: The Centaur

for sentimental: Hollywood a '76 Chicago Coin that my Dad and I refurbished in the 80s for at home.

so many more....over to you

waited a long time for availability to get another so I can have one at both battlestations. the newer one has some nice upgrades. the much more solid and secure power plug at the back, and I don't think I'm seeing things, the display is more vivid and bright.

sometimes it's the little things that keep you ticking.

cheers @PINE64
