Our new peach tree has started to give the first peaches of its life. Of course the tree is still small, and the peaches in a few years from now should be improved. Still higher quality fruit than Stator Bros. Way better! I'll be looking forward to peach jam!

We also have a new apricot tree, but it hasn't done anything but give leaves yet.

Need a shed?

This month in Architecture we built sheds. The process was the same as the bridge-making process, except we drew the plans on the computer instead of with a pencil. Materials needed: flat cardboard, wax paper, plans, sticks of balsa wood, razor blades, tape, and glue. Unlike the bridges, however, we didn't have to break the sheds.

In this picture, you can see the window in the back.

I suppose I'll get a comment later from Timothy on how this is or is not up to code.

I guess there are modes of transportation in Whittier that I don't usually think of using

A guy and a girl rode up while I was having coffee at Mimo's Cafe, parked their horses at these trees and ordered food. The guy just walked right in wearing his spurs. Who would have guessed.

If gas it too expensive, think about this. I don't know what insurance would cost.
