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.

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.

UK politics, Palestine action 

For UK people, the Palestine Solidarity Campaign is asking people to write to their MP, demanding that the UK stops arming Israel and bans trade with illegal settlements.

@GwenfarsGarden nope, they just keep moving the goal posts to segregate the next group that its permissible to gatekeep out.

with multisowing the harvest is spread out a bit, too. you pick the biggest roots first, freeing up space for the small ones to continue growing.

James Wong: "I am forever fascinated by how much the creative pursuit of gardening is not only incredibly constrained by our cultural beliefs, but the extent to which we are totally unaware this is even happening." In Singapore, the exotic must-have plant is...the dandelion

I don't mind dandelions anyway but this gives me a new appreciation for them! @plants #florespondence 🐘

The very first piece in the series Songs Without Words by Mendelssohn. Opus 19 No. 1 for #piano. This is a full stretch of my capabilities, but the beauty of the piece comes through.

Do people have suggestions for the best organisations to donate to in order to support Palestinians?

What others would people suggest? Any specific West Bank or Gazan orgs?

Do you have recommendations for sketchbooks which are watercolor compatible while smooth enough for ink fineliners?

Trying some grafting today using an over grown rootstock rose. If anyone whomst has done it before could tell me if this looks okay would appreciate. I know it should be cleaner than this probably but I have limited tools (I’m working with rather blunt pruners and blue tape rather than a razor and grafting tape) #gardening #plants #grafting
