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.

Here, have some things I saw at Duke Gardens earlier this week. Some bees happily visiting some goldenrod, and some ironweed in bloom with some Rudbeckia in the background.

some #florespondence from this summer past

i uh, don't know the names of any of these flowers off the top of my head, but if you, the reader, recognize them, you are welcome to offer an ID in replies.

One last blast on this plant survey before I close it in a couple of days, and it'd be awesome to get more responses, but especially awesome to hear from more Jewish people - no plant knowledge/experience required, open to all!


Heyo, fellow wheelchair users!

What are your tips, solutions, and setups for anchoring your wheelchair in your car's trunk when it's too spacey to not move around when you're driving ?

I have little to no support in my trunk, but I have some room where I plan to set up custom anchors specifically for the wheelchair (to more easily load/unload it), but I don't really know how to do it yet...

Boosts appreciated 🥺

I need to weed this area so much but I'm just glad that something we planted is finally surviving the insect hordes long enough to grow this many vines.. the soil is very loose so hoping for a nonzero amount of new sweet potatoes. Was going to cut down the dead sunflower stalks but now the passionflower is climbing on them so guess we'll wait. #gardening #florescence

photo of a snail (shell only), garden 

I did manage to step outside for five minutes the other day, so here is a photo of a tiny snail sleeping in one of my dahlias.

(I got it in a swap. It was labelled "Franz Kafka" but it looks nothing like that variety. If anyone recognizes it, I'd love to know what it is.)

#florespondence from autumn. Can you help me identify the pink flower? It looks like some kind of hibiscus/mallow/cotton plant, right?

Did a #saffron check-up yesterday (dug down to look), and the corms still appear to be "asleep." They do their thing after the first full moon after the autumnal equinox, so this year that's a bit later. I topped the bed with 4 cu ft of compost. Next visit to the house, I need to give them a deep drink to help them wake up.

A Lime Butterfly (Papilio demoleus) spotted resting on a leaf in a neighbourhood garden in Hougang, Singapore, on 10 September 2022. A very common butterfly often seen around citrus, which are its host plants.

Batch cooking makes it easier for me and my partner. I prep & cook over 2 days, & then I've contributed to the household. Then they don't have to think about it, they just get a container out of the freezer on any given night, & just need to heat up & make pasta.

Food, batch cooking, result 

Threw in some ground chilli to give it an extra flavour & little kick.

All cooked. Will batch up later. Need to rest now

Probably c. 20 meals for two, just add pasta.

It's a George Michael music kinda day.

Time for an updated (re) #introduction given I’ve moved 4,700 miles :-)

I'm Dave, a #computing and #music nerd from #Cornwall, recently returned after 11 years living in the #Dallas suburbs. Ex #academic #researcher, now a #developer.

I'm most likely to post about dance music on #vinyl, some #gardening, #cycling, and #computing stuff.

Very lucky to be married to @pollywaffle !

Not quite ripe yet but a gorgeous taste. Looking forward to getting more than one next year. @plants #florespondence

I love these flowers that go all gothic when autumn comes. Other flowers die off, but this one just sticks around, puts on The Cure and tucks in. #florespondence #garden #autumn
