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.

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!

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

The cool mornings, shorter days, and crescendo of evening cricket songs all remind me that the time to preserve and plan for our winter food supply is upon us. This weekend we made and canned salsa, froze fresh basil pesto, sweet peppers, eggplant medallions, basil leaves, and @winduptoy made some remarkably impressive hot sauce.

I've been working over the summer to document everything I've been able to pull off with Ledger to run a business and survive the US tax system. Basically picking up where the Ledger manual left off. It's completely free and open, uses only plaintext files.

I still need a trained accountant to fill out the damn forms for me, but I can at least provide all the right numbers with minimal effort!

#SeedSaving is not just food saving ... it is in the very heart of the centuries-old tradition and art of plant cultivation.

Next Tuesday, September 7 at 18:00 CEST (UTC+2), we put the culture back into agriculture with our first #OpenSource #Seed saving #workshop 2021 offered by Aimee Fenech. The workshop will be in English and online in a Big Blue Button (BBB) room, more information here:

The session is interactive, bring your questions and let us all learn together.

We've been elated to see so many male and female Goldfinch in our garden this week. In-between singing lovely little songs they frequent the sunflowers, pulling seeds from the aging heads. @plants

Something I found on Tumblr today:

' Kindness is often mistaken for softness and let me tell you, friends….that is a mistake you don’t want to make.

Kind people are not born that way, they do not stumble into it, kind people are forged in fire and darkness and imploding stars…they have steel cores. Throw a punch and you’re going to break your hand. '
