I think you're really great and you're an inspiration to me... :)

AWWWWWWW!

Missed SPF by about 18 hours, but I’m having a crummy day and there are thunderstorms coming and I just hate bad weather. Sigh. But I did get this nice head wrap and my Milwaukee Brewing Co. shirt finally fits so I got that going for me…

So I have a tiny garden on the back porch steps. The wildlife doesn’t come close to the house and this spot gets lots of sun. I got the healthiest plants I could find and even got special moisture control dirt. If I fail this time, I’m just going to give up on gardening.
From top to bottom: lavender, basil, tomatoes! How often should I water them? Like every 3 days?

Your tomatoes are WAY too close together and that planter is not big enough for them. They typically need 24” space between them. If you have a compact variety you might get away with 12” of a determinate staked tomato plant, but that’s pushing it.
Basil also takes up 1 square foot per plant. 
Lavender is just plain hard to grow.
You should water them more often than if they were in the ground.  Stick your finger all the way in the dirt and take it out. If there is wet dirt stuck to your finger, water, if not, let it go.
I would recommend fertilizing at least twice over the season since nutrients will be removed from the soil by rain and watering. If the tomatoes start to look sickly, transplant them into large pots without other plants in them.

Okay, I recently bought this same bikini in a different print and love it! But now I want a suit this print and don’t know if I should stick to the bikini or go different with the one piece?

The advantage of the bikini is that you can, later on, get another set or individual pieces and mix and match. Maybe a lemon top with those bottoms or a red bottom or even a fun “clash” of patterns. Whatever you feel most CONFIDENT in is what you should get, though!

You were my first pair. I wore you twice. I’m sorry I outgrew you so fast. 

I’ve lost 40 lbs. That’s a full 5 gallon Better Bottle.  That is the weight of my dog.

Time to make more bags of clothes to give away. 

It’ll be 12 weeks on Monday, kids. 

I got summer plans. 

Drunk, Irish, Crop Top, Short Short Plans.

Holy shit! Damn Hedge, you a boss. xD

You’re catching up to me real quick! I’ve lost 82 pounds since Jan 2013. 

That’s amazing! I hope I can say that by Christmas! I know it will slow down soon, but I’m just enjoying (and mourning) the loss of so many big clothes XD

May I ask, how did you lose the 40lbs?

A very, very low carb diet and mainly eating whole foods. I eat about 20g of carbs a day (not counting fiber from vegetables) and eat about 1600 calories a day, sometimes up to 1,900 if I am really hungry. I drink about a gallon of water a day. No sugar, no artificial sugar, no cheating.

Not an atypical scene from my living room. I need to keep an eye on the Bavarian. I don’t want shit on my ceiling again.

Why not just use some blow-off tubing with a small bucket of water instead of the airlock? Learned my lesson with the last batch of blueberry melomel, my closet walls are stained purple…;)

I install blow offs on all of my primaries. Unfortunately, I was out of tubing as I had it on three or four other demijohns/carboys at the time.
