Greening the Studio

The studio is rich with life! Painting progress has been slow, but the seedlings are growing fast! A week or two more and they will be ready to be outside full time.  I have been busy watering, repoting, and taking them out of the studio during the day and bringing them in at night. We will have a large variety of veggies to pick this summer;
yellow squash, zucchini, winter squash varieties, peppers, snap peas, green and yellow bush beans, cabbage, lettuce, Swiss chard, beets, carrots, collard greens,cucumbers, onions, garlic, parsley, dill, cilantro, and lots of varieties of tomatoes!

To have room for all this we will be expanding a section of the garden to try a pallet bed where you cover the bottom of a wooden pallet with garden cloth and fill it with dirt, then plant between the slats.  This should work well with shallow rooted plants and helps keep the moisture in and the weeds out.  Looking forward to seeing how it works out.

Alicia Hunsicker's art is undeniably beautiful. She is an expert at extracting the highly-detailed textures and fibers of the human body, bringing them from darkness, into the light, with a technical precision that rivals any modern-day master.
