Yeah, it's been dead for like two months now, I've just been way too lazy to take a picture. Meh, at least I'm making a new post!
Oh yeah, and be sure to 5 the Party Pokèmon Collab! It's pretty awesome.
Lastly, I want you all to know that I possibly might start almost kind of giving a damn about this place. Maybe.

Today (May 22), I drilled a new hole and planted OREGANO! Check out the latest pictures. I also reseed the keyboard with more grass and dirt.
The first sprouts grew on May 1, above the F6, 1, Y, 8, 3, and 6 keys; between OMXT; between AI; and between 4578 on the number pad.
yoshi777 (Number Pad 5)
Xtesh (Number Pad 5)
TacoFreak (= and 3)
BazookaNinja (Number Pad 4 and 5)
Lost-Chances (Number Pad freakin' 5)
joza1 (It was a key on the number pad...)
VenusDoom (Number Pad 4, 5, 6)
iateamexican (He said it would grow between May 1 and 5. I guess I'll put him in here)
My high school had a pile of computers, monitors, and keyboards lying in the back, awaiting garbage pick-up. I took a few keyboards with something in mind, I just didn't know what. Well, the idea has finally came to me in a glorious revelation, with a beam of light and everything:
A KEYBOARD GARDEN!!!
I'll update daily with a new picture. When it starts to sprout, I'll do something special, lol.
Okay, I drilled drainage holes in the bottom and got it all prepped.
I rearranged the keys, lol.
Covered it with some dirt.
Seeded that muthafucka.
Then I finally added the life-giving substance known as water!
This is the big shot, you can't see the sprouts from here...
The F6 and 8 key splendor close up!
More grass is starting to grow in more places! And now you can actually see some of it!
Here's a closeup shot on some of the tallest pieces.
I really like how this shot came out. This is also where most of it is growing.
Here's the big shot. You can't see it, but more seeds are sprouting!
The ubiquitous big shot, in not-so-ubiquitous low quality.
The number pad is doing well.
But this area is even better!
And here is that kick-ass angle picture that we all love. You can also see a lot of new sprouts!
Woah! The crazy angle from the other side!
This is the closeup on the tallest blades.
Oh Lord, more ubiquity! (Look that word up you lazy people!)
A lot of new grass is coming up!
Look how tall it's getting!
UBIQUITY UBIQUITY UBIQUITY (Also, Picture #30).
The overall picture shows how well this thing's doing.
You can see the top row is doing the best.
This is the Number pad. Yay.
I had to finish a poster and a paper today. But I still had to take the time at 10:20 at night to upload these pictures for you!
Sorry, I was too busy yesterday to update, so I'm doing 20 and 21 today!
Check this out!
It's growing so well!
This was the most miserable Monday ever, lol.
I wonder if I'll ever have to cut this, lol.
It looks so much better from this angle.
Guess what! Grass!
The pieces I transplanted to the IBM logo seem to be living despite the lack of soil.
I had to take it inside to get a picture, lol.
Please excuse the bad picture.
Don't excuse this one though.
Cell phone cameras don't always have the best quality...
It ain't easy being green.
Because it's every other day now, I'll give you a few more picture than usual!
And we'll kick things off with Keyboard Garden in its full majesty. Note the balancing skills displayed...
Up next is the Number Pad.
That row between the numbers and function keys sure looks good!
Looking good there, grass!
It's really getting tall now!
You can see a bit more peeking out of the Escape key, lol.
Seven pictures: PHEW! I'm glad I get free pix messages from my phone. I'm also gonna thank Spamtheweb once more. You rock, STW!
So I'm thinking about putting more grass seeds on this to make it thicker. If you want me to, leave a comment saying so, okay? Adios!
Jajaja, Picture #69. Here's the overview.
I can see some of the grass splitting into different blades, so this thing will be very thick!
Check out those arrow keys, lol.
This shot shows a lot of the grass...
And the last picture for today.
The weather here was all rainy; hace muy mal tiempo... Because of this, I'll plant more seeds Thursday so they get more sunlight. I'm also gonna put... nevermind; you'll find out. That's all for now!
Today, oregano was added to the Keyboard Garden. It sprouts in 10-20 days, so hopefully it works! These are pictures of the construction of the oregano area:
Apparently, keyboards are filled with candy! It's like a piñata!
Now what's this popping out here?
Alright. I sealed some holes, put in some dirt, and put some seeds in. Let's hope this works!
Afterwards, I put more grass seeds in this. I hope this will make it look thicker!
There's more dirt and seeds on here now!
I want to fill in this blank spot.
A bit more in the Number Pad would be nice.
And finally I want grass here.
I'll keep you guys updated, but don't expect the oregano tomorrow!
This is a cool new angle I discovered!
I have to do something about the blank between the numberpad and the letters...
This is a place in which I think think the grass will lift up the key sooner or later.
Here as well.
And lastly, here
Man, I've noticed just how long my news post is! Maybe I should take out Days 2 - 9 or something?
You may have noticed I took out a lot of days from the newspost. Just thought I'd clean it up.
I also can't seem to get good big pictures anymore...
Look how thick it is!
Hehe, that's what she said.
The grass at the escape key is doing pretty good.
And we're closing off today's update with the side angle.
Check every other day for new pictures!
Here's the bird's eye view of the whole thing. I really wish grass would grow on the bottom corners of the letter area...
At least the grass that's already there is doing good.
The tuft at the number pad...
And finally a random closeup.
So it's been six days since I've planted the oregano and new grass seeds. The oregano should come up in a week or so, and the grass should come up in less than a week, assuming it takes eleven days like the first seeds did. I hope it all works!
Let's open up Day 2^3*5 with the overall shot. Lookin' good!
I wonder why the grass is doing so much better right above the number keys than everywhere else...
This area might be sprouting! Maybe it will fill up!
Oh my... Picture #100! Thank God Spamtheweb is a beast!
I did a whole ton of new planting yesterday.
Up here I put some trees. One is from an acorn, and one is from a helicopter. Curious indeed.
Here's a cool side shot.
You can see the tree standing tall, lol.
I even put a little something by the IBM logo!
Here's the big picture now. I did a sweet photoshop at the background, no?
I hope the trees survive. They should, just not grow to be that big.
Here's the last shot for today showing some of the grass.
Everything is still growing good, and I can't wait to see how the new plants do.
It's been awhile since the last update, lol. I'm just very lazy with the pictures now. Alright, it's been VERY hot and sunny lately, and the one day I left it outside during school was the day it got the hottest, so the little trees in the back wilted, I'll probably remove them :( I'll put something else there sooner or later.
Yeah, it definitely doesn't look to happy with me. It's not my fault!
At least it's still all green!
Nothing yet in the oregano part. It probably won't grow...
IBM is dead.
The clovers are still alive. I bet they'll get really big, lol.
Don't expect an update for a few days. I promise one before Friday!
LAST DAY OF SCHOOL JUST ENDED!!! Anyway, the weather has been more mild and it's rained finally, meaning the garden is great!
Keyboard Garden has been doing a LOT better!
Moar grass, lol.
Look at this stuff, especially the clover! Maybe I shoot 'mow' it?
Only the tree-thing to the far left of this section is growing, so I took out the others and replaced it with pines. They've been living so far...
Some of the blades look dead, but that's nature for you!
Finally! Some seeds are sprouting over here!
So much for the oregano, lol. Maybe this weed that has sprouted will flourish.
I'll try and be more consistent with my updates from now on. Every three days, okay?
I would like to thank Spamtheweb.com. Sweet uploading system!

Hey! If you want to mess with people's profiles on April Fools' Day, just post this in a comment on their page! They have to have HTML enabled, and if it's set so they have to approve comments, then they'll catch it... Otherwise, have fun! And later, you can all laugh about this and take the comment down.
