    • Life is a Toy, Not a Game
      In game development there is a distinction between toys and games.   A ball is a toy. Soccer is game.  You can do many things with a ball, which are fun, which are not games. It is when you add rules and the ability to win or lose, that a toy becomes a game. Really life [...]

Something to look forward to

The Nuttery garden in winter at Sissinghurst Castle, England

It’s the dead of winter but surprisingly mild here in New Jersey.  The weather is going to be sunny and in the high 40s, low 50s all week.  Weird.  So, I’ve been watching gardening videos and visiting gardening sites.  What do I know about gardening?  Not much.  I’m usually a horticidal maniac.  But lately, I have been able to keep a few plants growing.  I wouldn’t say they are thriving but they haven’t died yet and they are still green.  And I’ve managed to do that for at least a year with one plant and several months with the others.  Yes, I lost a rhododendrum last summer but I kept the limelight hydrangea going.  It’s a start.

Last year, I introduced some of you to Titli Nihaan, the English Halal cook.  But I only recently found that Titli, who really should have her own show on TV, also has a very busy garden.  I was wondering where she got all that rhubarb.  Last year, she documented her garden in something like 46 youtube episodes.  You catch the last half of these episodes on youtube, the beginning half is only available on DVD.  Pretty nifty business model.  I like to watch Titli not just for her gardening skills but for her camera appeal.  Here’s a montage of Titli’s Busy Garden from 2012 so you can see what I mean:

I’m thinking of trying my hand at some real gardening this year and might even plant some GMO tomatoes.  Just kidding.

Or am I?

But wait! There’s more!

The Vermont Bean Seed Company has a garden planning app that will help you layout your garden, set up a Gant chart of when to plant and will send you reminders and tips.  Too cool.  The first 30 days are free.  It’s $25 after that.  I haven’t found a similar app on the ipad or for OSX yet.  If I’ve missed one, let me know.
