Fall's here. It is getting cooler outside, I can turn off the swamp cooler. I spent some time planting herbs and flowers. This afternoon I planted squash seeds in a cardboard egg carton. I don't have the best green thumb. Many of the plants around me seem to arrive on their own, like the big cactus growing in my backyard.

Fall cactus, detail.

The neighbor's fig tree has suddenly decided to make yet another crop of figs. So I go out to pick them because if you don't they fall on the ground and smell like cat urine as they rot. I take them to work because they are apparently good to eat, but I'm not a big fan.

Outside I played with my digital camera and experimented with different settings. A lot of the buttons are still like magic, I'm not quite sure what they do and I'm a tad lazy when it comes to reading the manual. I wonder if people came with manuals whether mine would be interesting to read. Would you read it from cover-to-cover, or would you skip the boring stuff and read the chapter on "How to poop" instead?
