Tomorrow I’ll share a video on planting vanilla orchids – I just popped 6 or more into the front yard.
In a few minutes, though, I’m off to visit my friend with the sawmill.
Yesterday afternoon I took my family to the beach to watch what we could see of the eclipse. We only got a little over a 50% decrease in the solar disc here but it was still fun to see the world go darker than normal, plus it was an excuse to visit the beach.
While there, I noticed the local resort had cut down part of a large tree with red wood. It looked like nice lumber, so I called my friend to see if he’d want to cut it up for me. After some extended research, I finally nailed the tree down as Albizia saman.
He agreed to cut it for me, so we’re off to pick up the log this morning and send it through the saw. Ought to be really cool.
