A friend tipped me to this fascinating article about fruit walls, which can be bare or assisted with glass.  It is an excellent way of growing food in places with cold or windy weather.

Poetry in Microfunding:

There are four open epics.

"Only If It Is Embraced" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Damask and has 55 new verses. Pain's Gray and Keane head to the support area for mission followup.

"A Cave Swarming with Strange Forms of Life" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Iron Horses. Kenzie goes to Pretty Ears for counseling.

"Love Unflinching" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Berettaflies." An ethical consultant arrives in Easy City, adopts a buggle, and meets Stylet.

"So Many Notes and Colors and Flavors" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv. Heron and Shiv are comfort-cooking, and not everything goes smooth.


Temperature has varied radically this week, from frigid to mild.. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a flock of sparrows, a flock of dark-eyed juncos, a small flock of starlings, a small flock of mourning doves, a pair of cardinals, a pair of downy woodpeckers, a Bewick's wren, and a squirrel.

In the interest of time management, I'm changing a parameter for bonus fishbowls.  Previously it took three months reaching $250 in sales to make a bonus fishbowl.  I'm raising that to four.  Likely this will mean one more half-price sale and one fewer bonus fishbowl per year.  Since the bonus fishbowls usually take more time to do than the sales, that should free up a little more time here.
