http://www.youaregodblog.com/ has been here the past two days shooting video at the Field Lab. Finally got a start on the greenhouse welding today...briefly, before it got hot. A new set of palo verde sprouts are doing well. Cleaned my house solar panels. Been hot and humid the past 48 hours. Very good chance of rain tonight...finally.

Had a visit this morning from the Mahanays. They tried to come out for a visit just one year and a day ago but my road was too swampy because of rain so I met them at the GrubShack. Glad they finally made it out to the Field Lab for the official tour. Got a mug from them with an award winning photo they shot during last years visit.

FIELD LAB BLOG CONTEST
First person to comment correctly on the significance of tonight's post wins a special hand made Field Lab tshirt. Hint: it has nothing to do with the subject of the post or any of the rapture predictions.

Got my sand quicker than expected.
First time I've noticed the holacantha stewartii blooming.

Plumbed in the second downspout on the north side and both downspouts on the south side. Forgot 3 sets of reducer bushings so the drain valves will have to wait....no rush because we are in a drought and no sign of rain for at least the next 10 days. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/05/09/eveningnews/main20061265.shtml
One of my palo verdes didn't make it so I popped a new sprout into the waterboxx that had the faulty plant. I'm happy to report that my weird new fivefingers shoes have been worn for 11 strait days with no ill effects (other than they have gotten rather stinky, so I washed them today). 77,91,63,0,W
