Yesterday Gretchen and I went on the Tour De Coups! Some of the chicken coups were very impressive; even more impressive was some of the things people were growing in their back yards. One couple had a veritable forest of produce! It gave Gretchen some good ideas for the garden, and helped renew my chicken coup building inspiration.
Also a bit of old news; I got a RAID card a week or two ago:
My array is up and running, and I've already expanded it twice! I hope to migrate it to RAID 6 and add a hot-spare before July 8th; but we'll see how it goes.
