I was gonna write a post about the two hunks of Gouda cheese I made over the last two days and call it, "Life is Gouda," but I have something more urgent to write about and besides, the second hunk of Gouda is pressing overnight. I'll write the Gouda post when I have a picture of it/them. It will be good-a.
What was so urgent, you ask? You know how you're in the homestretch of the evening, winding down into bedtime and ... you notice the fluorescent grow lights flickering ... again. Like they have for the past two days. Replacing a tube didn't fix it. So you wander over to take a look, get the screwdriver to take it apart and see what's inside. You realize that this nice old fixture has innards that can be taken out and replaced with innards from a new fixture. And then it turns into a project....
But what idiot starts a project like this right before bedtime?? I was looking forward to going to bed early tonight, but I guess I blew that one away when I got carried away with light fixtures. Blah! I had to force myself to stop - I'm a sorry person when I don't get enough sleep. The baby plants are going to have to fend for themselves with natural light for one day until I can finish the project tomorrow.
