hmmmm...I'm starting to remember what a hundred+ degree day with a UV index of 10 feels like. Had a couple of nice little blooms on a potted cactus I saved last year after a longhorn uprooting. Began rigging the rig for the solar fryer. - so far all the parts are going together as planned, but the first test was a flub. A combination of factors caused the Jiffy Pop failure: high winds, not enough mirrors, started late in the day. But I was close - the pan started to sizzle and actually popped about 30 times. Thus we enter the "tweak the project" phase. Cooked for real in the solar oven today - seasoned boneless chicken breast with sliced potatoes. 80,99,45,0,B
IP cam note: A longhorn chewed the cable AGAIN so that is why the image is stuck on Saturday. Should have it up and running again soon ....after I dig a trench for the cable.
