Pinned toot

Re food posts/recipes, I post unCWed toots, as I am on a cooking instance!

However, I am also trying to remember to write a separate CWed post that links back for recipes, for people who would prefer to see/boost food CWed.

I'm also trying to remember to add the hashtags and , so that you can mute these if you don't want them in your timeline at all.

Lots of pics on the blog. The photos posted here are the before (when we moved in, Nov 2017) and May 2020, to give you an idea of how it's changed.

Growing ? It's time to check if you have any garlic scapes, because if you don't take them off, you'll end up with small bulbs in the ground.

Short blogpost with detailed pictures on what to do.

I realise I've never stated this clearly, so I will now. Please call me out/let me know, if I've said or inferred anything that is racist, ableist, anti-trans etc. I'm trying really hard to unlearn white supremacy, stop using ableist language etc, but I'm going to make mistakes. I'd rather know, so I can change that language/behaviour.

Time like an update on our Absynnian banana plant.

It’s grown 40cm in 3 weeks.

It seems prone to aphids and bugs. I’ve taken outside and given it a gentle hose down a couple of times which it seems to like.


question of the day: what's the best pastry you ever ate? what's your memory of it? 🥐

@Paul Sounds great. Am picturing gangs of squirrels loitering around the boxes waiting to make off with the collection but I'm in favour either way.

council is asking citizens to collect seeds for growing new areas of woodland. They'll be adding collection boxes to local parks for people to deposit acorns, beech nuts, chestnuts and conkers.

I think this is a very cool project.

Your regular reminder, as we head into US politics season once again, that CWs are good and anxiety isn’t praxis.

If reading a book is a creative endeavor (and it is. We create the characters in our minds, we run experiments with the situations described in our head, we assimilate arguments and reject or accept them) then all the more so is playing a video game, where you create the story piece by piece, choice by choice, movement by movement.

The only tomato to grow from 4 plants has finally ripened!

It survived fickle weather and a flat move. So although not the best outcome for my first growing season, I hope I learned enough for next time.

The taste, by the way, was great!

I've been learning about techniques such as blending and layering and this is my 1st proper attempt. I kept it to a limited palette of 4 types of pinks and greens, and played with blending and layering with those.

I enjoyed doing this. It's still rough, but I'm still a beginner at this, and enjoying it is the important thing :)

Can anyone tell how long I can store string bean without a fridge? And what's the proper way?

(I tried searching for this info on the internet already)

Ported what I have so far for a 'moderation resource' sheet on SBC's Wiki. Will update as I can!
