Life, the Universe, and Zombies

So, this weekend I finally reached the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything...which comes in handy when fighting zombies. Helps keep everything in perspective, don't ya know.

ZSC014 heading into action.
Destination: The Last Organic Outpost

A lot has been going on at the Outpost lately, including an increase in Zombie attacks. As word of the Outpost's existence and mission grows (ha ha ha, get it?) more and more volunteers have been showing up to help this also means more zombies. And, being zombies, they break things.

Luckily, ZS member BabaBrad is REALLY good at fixing things.

When dealing with an apocalypse, you just have to make due with what you've got. People this far in to the end of the world as we know it are dang good at modifying stuff to fit there needs. Case in point: the Prius Pickup Truck!

It not just manning the barricades and fighting zombies down at the Last Organic Outpost. We also sell food! Along with the usual garden-fresh veggies you can see being picked we've also joined up with Gunter Farms to bring you the best in heirloom seedlings for your own garden. We are entering prime melon-planting season here in Houston, so swing by and buy the best!

Gunter's selection.

The Gunters and happy customers.

Of course, if you like your food free you can check out my wild edibles demo beds. This one is in what used to be a hearse...

Eat these or end up in one of these.

Baba Brad got the tractor's bucket controls fixed, so it returned to work, much to the joy of the local children. Then he and I turned to our continued battle with Japanese honeysuckle that is trying to take over the southeast section of the Outpost. I've been hacking at it for several weeks but it grows back almost as fast as it gets cut down. I'm hoping for a raining weekend when I can bring my flamethrower and just burn the stuff out. I'm pretty sure fire is considered an organic farming tool...

Just another picture of the farm.

Adventure! Excitement! Birthday!

Gotta let a brother know when you're going to be out there. I would have taken off early today, not a single person showed up to the open house.
