I'm considering putting together a garden-related online workshop over the winter. I'd love to know which of these topics would interest folks the most.

@jlk @plants we have loads of these trees around our neighborhood. They're beautiful! I'm impressed that you're starting from seed. Did you harvest directly from the pods?

When you don’t create things, you become defined by your tastes rather than ability. Your tastes only narrow and exclude people. so create.

— Why the Lucky Stiff

@bart you know when they're not happy with something... the all crawl up the sides and on inside of the lid. They like a balanced pH which is why you offer a combination of food waste and carbon. We cut up toilet paper rolls and soak them in water, which they seem to really love. They love wet foods like cucumber, melon rinds, sweet peppers as well, but will eat about anything (not onions, garlic, meats, or citrus). We also give them ground eggshells for grit, which is how they digest.

@bart yes, you could starve them but I would think it would be difficult to do. I check on them daily, but generally only offer food scraps or carbon (brown paper, leaves, etc.) once a week or so... just as they need it. They like a bit of moisture too so I'll spritz them if it all seems to be getting dry. And yes, there are holes in the bottom of 2 of the bins so they can travel up and down (which is how you collect the castings). The instructions for the build: msurecycling.com/recycling-new

@bart here's how we started our worms. We've had it a couple of months now and it's been great.

My first #uxn project! A moon phase tracker (more novelty than accurate).

I wrote a little script to get your large indexed images out of GIMP and into uxn: gemini://gemini.sensorstation.

Special thanks to @brendan and @alderwick for the math help!

@RadioAngel I just cut back most of the basil as the creatures hadn't seemed interested in the lethargic blooms anymore. A lot of what we cut back (we always leave roots in place) has started to regrow so now we have really nice fresh basil until the frost comes in :)

@metawish you could put them in a tightly sealed container (we use an ammo-type box) and keep them in the back of the refrigerator. There's lots of debate around this, but after 3 years of doing it I've had zero issues with germination, spoilage, etc.

@absinthe they may turn if you put them in a paper bag with a banana.

Two beautifully simple bread loaves, fresh from the oven, with no place to be except in my grateful little mouth. 🤤
