Studio Apt

Hi there,

Anyone know of any fairly inexpensive studios around the LS/Ravenswood neighborhood? Currently looking to move out of my 1BR @$975/mo and need something a little less expensive.
Love the neighborhood too much to leave!

Old dude outside of Windy City Movers

Anyone know anything about the old dude pounding Old Styles outside Windy City movers on Clark? He's there everyday, rain or shine. Never asking for money or bothering anybody, just drinking.

  • He is associated with the place. Lately he sits on the couch inside the front window. I've been walking past him daily for almost two years now. He used to be exclusively PBR, but lately I've noticed he's drinking Busch as well. Perhaps the moving business is falling on hard times. =)

  • I believe he owns the place. Loves kids and says hi. I'm thinking he's got circulation problems, look below the knees

Free Iris Plants

I'm splitting my Iris plants as they have grown pretty massive. I have way more than I know what to do with. Anyone interested in having some for their garden please drop me a message to arrange a time to come by for some.

    Nan, Iris Plants is (temporarily) in prison by me. I hope to free her to a life in a sunny, well-drained spot soon.

    Nan, Iris Plants is (temporarily) in prison by me. I hope to free her to a life in a sunny, well-drained spot soon.

    Damian, thank you so much. The iris rhizomes were all so beautifully prepared - clean and divided and ready to plant. I got inspired to try to beautify my weedy, dreary but sunny stretch of south-facing alley in my new digs after the gardeners who maintain the triangle at Lawrence and Magnolia offered free daylilies this June on EB. I think it's going to be a bit cheerier in my little stretch of alley next year if I can just stay on top of the broken bottles, the fly dumpers and the taggers.

    I've been sending this information to people via email, but it seems easier to just put it here once. Here is some info regarding planting and splitting Iris plants.
