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.

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.

donation post, mutual aid, death 

I’m struggling to get by. I’m behind on rent and utilities, and I still owe my roommate, who’s planning to move, for paying our shares some months ago. I mainly do postmates deliveries on my bike for extra cash. Any help is appreciated. I need to be there by Thursday for the funeral service. Please help by donating or sharing.

Heyoh, all around fermentationist here.

I ferment far and wide,
From the dumpsters I save food
and I (try) to make it good
all this in my toot (s)!

A hybrid sourdough/kefir bread to start my thread!

Marble sourdough turmeric-chocolate bread for a colourful breakfast.

Slightly overproofed tho :(

My Hibiscus seems to bloom better inside during the winter than outdoors in the summer.

A strange thing has happened: the sweet pea seeds I saved in the fall seem to have sprouted all on their own. (And then died, I guess.) I left them on indoor shelves, all spread out, which is what I’ve been doing with saved seeds for years. What the heck?

I'm torn between having FOMO with the lack of snow, and being pleased as tomorrow is meant to be sunny and I want to get started on pruning the Quince and Apple trees. 🤷‍♀️

I read that I could put the whole garlic head in the soil if I wanted to harvest green garlic, so I tried that as an experiment.

They're growing well for the moment. I'm very happy!

Now that the friend I sent this to has received it I can post this card I made 😁 mutuals: do you have a favourite flower or plant you would like to see done in watercolour? (no promises but I wanna do 1 quick painting/wk)

It's a TREE. You're trying to reinvent the tree. Just plant trees and stop fucking polluting.

PLEASE caption your images so I know what on earth your Bernie meme is referencing

meta, kolektiva 

The size of a community is really a big issue with a lot of moderation, especially with federation.

A lot of the popular instances on here aren't actually that big, you'll often find that their active users don't reach much higher than 150. Once they do, registrations are usually closed, so moderators can focus on providing a good service for their existing community and ensuring bad actors are dealt with ASAP.

This same service just cannot work as effectively with larger instances. It's why so many people have defederated from mastodon.social, why mastodon.online was completely unable to deal with its recent massive influx.

Kolektiva now has over 2,000 active users, with registrations still open, and its small mod team has proven incapable of dealing with its explosive growth. When you only have a handful of people modding at any one time, bad actors just aren't going to get dealt with at the rate they need to be to ensure a healthy community.

(This is not to say small instances are inherently good, there's a bunch of small instances that are utterly horrendous parts of the network, just that smaller instances are more manageable)

This is a postcard that I've stuck onto a blank card to turn it into a nice card to send a friend. He is a cyclist so I've used a glitter gel pen to go over the bike outline so it sparkles depending on the angle and light.

First attempt at freestyle(?) grass, which isn't too bad. Overall, fairly pleased with this one.

Hey there, I'm Wolfie and this is my !

I've recently moved from @veggie_wolfie and my main account is @wolfie

I'm 36 and Ive been since I turned 18 in 2002, with occasional forays into alternatives in recent years.

I would describe my cooking skill level as: can follow a recipe and switch ingredients according to preference/to make it veggie, but also often lacking spoons to make anything too complicated

Here to share and enjoy recipes and such!
