My dye sink arrived! Â I darted out to the restaurant wholesaler this morning and picked it up before heading off to Drupal Camp at Stanford. Â (One of my projects at work is being implemented on the Drupal platform, so work sent me to this mini-conference.) Â I dropped the dye sink off and managed to set it up on my nice new pavers:
You will notice one glaring flaw in the sink design: there are no supports for the drainboard, meaning that the slightest weight on the drainboard will tip over the sink. Â Mike and I are going to have to create some supports for it before we can really wire up the sink. Â Bother!
But the sink is here, it’s big enough to take a full dyepot with no trouble, and I like it. Â It would probably have been less trouble if I’d gotten a plain sink instead of one with a drainboard, but we’ll figure out a way to make it work. Â And it will be nice to have a drainboard.
I’ve also bought the compost for the garden – fifteen cubic feet of it, to be exact. Â We’re planning on five 8-9 foot rows – a single row of plants being easier to irrigate than a 4’x8′ bed. Â We are probably going to do beds eventually, but we just don’t have the time right now. Â That’s 45 linear feet of row, which is probably way more than enough. Â Luxury! Â I’m really going to go to town at the nursery, which has a wonderful selection of veggies this time of year.
Break’s over! Â Back to learning about Drupal.
