Have a Great Weekend

All sorts of interesting developments: apparently the Triffid Ranch was mentioned obliquely in a discussion with Atlas Obscura for NPR’s Science Friday (hat tip to Amanda Thomsen of Kiss My Aster for catching that). A new Triffid Ranch newsletter goes out this weekend, so subscribe if you haven’t already, because those who remember my writing days are going to suffer severe levels of head explodey. This weekend and next are dedicated to getting the largest Triffid Ranch enclosure yet out the door, as well as engaging the scarlet trumpetvine surrounding the greenhousein a dinner theater production of Pacific Rim. Oh, and I almost forgot: music.

Description: A specialized commission for a customer wishing to add his own selection of plants, this enclosure was inspired by any number of utility company and military projects. These installations surrounded equipment that didn’t and couldn’t justify constant upkeep but that still functioned perfectly well, even as paint flaked and seedlings turned into trees.
