Imaginary Realities submission deadline

If you want to get your article in for the November issue of Imaginary Realities (volume 5, issue 1), you have 10 days left. If you did not run your article idea by me, and are working on an article, then please do so to ensure you're not wasting your time. The next issue will be published in February 2014, so you can always submit your article for that. But keep in mind the plan previously discussed by the various interested people was to expand the focus to other forms of text games, like interactive fiction, roguelikes and some other weird shit I've never used myself. February 2014 is a long time away!

Old bridge pilings

I bought a bag of orchard ley from Koanga nursery. On the instructions, it mentions mixing it with sand and raking it into the ground. So, passing a local river, I stopped to appropriate some sand.

The ley is a 1 kg bag of seeds.  I've yet to plant it, mainly because I am a little confused.  Do I remove the grass and rake the seed and sand mixture into the soil?  Or do I just rake it into the grass?  As the raking is intended to prevent the birds from getting the seeds, and sweet Jesus do I have lots of birds here, I'm probably going to leave the grass and make them work for the seeds.
