This is Merlin Sheldrake eating oyster mushrooms he's grown on his book Entangled Life. It's a good book but its given me an idea for disposing of crap books that have come into my possession.

My small space gardening system is as follows.

1. Carefully plan my little beds.
2. Ignore that and plant lots of squash anyways.
3. Realize nothing else is doing well shaded by pumpkins.
4. Fill the walkways with grow bags to grow anything else. Promising to fix it next year.

The next year fix nothing and repeat.

My favorite sandwich. Keep scrolling. 

A sliced banana, peanutbutter, and Sardine sandwich being prepared on garlic sourdough.

Got your pumpkins in the ground? I started mine a bit early this year since my partner insists on hitting pumpkin patches anyway.

Something a bit different today...

There's a really nice Fediverse admin on here called @stux who provides lots of free decentralised public services (public instances of Mastodon, PeerTube, Pixelfed, Matrix, Nitter, Invidious, Searx etc).

Stux is spending hundreds of euros a month so that these services remain free and operational.

Apparently Stux has had a tough time finding work recently, but has their own small business which provides web hosting.

If you're looking for a small indie hosting provider, this might be a really good choice as the money raised will help keep the Fedi going too:


(I'm sorry to embarass you Stux, but I think you deserve a shout-out for the good work you do!)

For a while it was Cleveland. Wonder if they all moved because my second biggest is New York.

Looked at my stats and most of my downloads are in or around Cincinnati. Which is neat... but also odd.

Finally released a new episode of the . In this one I talk about the order Hemiptera, or the "True Bugs". Hope you like it.

My small strawberry patch is producing a nice handfull a day. Still not reaching the house though. After the squash at the back of the bed finish up I think this will be my permanant strawberry patch.

Woke up a bit early for a read. The book got chewed by something in storage, but I think my paper tape repairs look pretty snazzy.

My daughter really is a fine snailhunter in the garden. It'd be a nice plate of Petit Gris if I were sure they weren't contaminated.

Garden like nobodies watching.

By which i mean propigate and grey market some patented roses.
