Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
Our plans for this month include
travel trip to the Northeast to visit our large steel dome under construction
(see NL #6),
with excursions to visit the Cinesphere dome in Toronto and the ASM dome
in Ohio (see the Dome
Tour page), two wonderful dome structures.
My little back yard garden has
been quite productive, giving us several weeks of fresh green beans and
sweet peas. Now the okra and tomatoes are beginning to ripen. It's nice
to have fresh raw food nature's way. The garden is in the 2x2 Icosa-Dome
-X1 with a covering of plastic anti-bird/deer mesh stapled on. A wire fence
is around the bottom to keep the curious cows and other hungry animals
out. (Last year 2 calves got through the mesh and enjoyed some of the watermelons
and tomatoes - a hilarious disaster.)
The concept of using a simple dome to support a protective covering
for the garden is proven to be effective. If you don't need a full greenhouse
cover, protect your garden from birds and animals with a dome and plastic
mesh or wire fence covering.
Next image shows the 1x2 Icosa-Dome -X1.
Here's Ernie [yours truly]
with the top pentagon section of the 38.5 ft. steel dome that will be installed
in New York. At the center is a steel hub of our patented design that contains
an axle for the revolving doors and fittings for attaching the steel tube
