A Great Day at the Garden

McRorie Community Garden Salad

Today indeed was a great day at the garden. You're looking at the end of the story.

Can you see it? There's a tiny sprout in the upper right corner. Tiny, tiny, but it's coming up.

Trek Mountain Bike Rebuild, by Tim Kinney

You can make a nice City bike or touring bike out of an old mountain bike from the era when they had a rigid fork (a cheap suspension fork is the spawn of Satan).

I recently repainted and rebuilt and old Trek MTB for my nephew. I painted it in…

Juicing with Kale


My bud Shmal and I have planted some kale we bought from Farmer John at the Gainesville Alachua County Farmer's Market at Bo Diddly Square. Shmal said to me "Hey, Mike - this seems like ornamental kale. I don't know whether it's edible." So, I walked over and took a look. Then, I took a bite. Sure enough, it was very rough and fibrous.
