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.

thanksgiving psa:

colonizers don't get to make jokes about americans spreading plague as a thanksgiving tradition. i have no clue why you'd think its chill to make genocide jokes, especially at a time where indigenous populations on reservations are being decimated by C19.

give money to indigenous people and amplify their voices instead.

Further to the Stamets & fungi discussion, for anyone who like me didn't know...

The Paul Stamets character is based on a real Paul Stamets who is a mushroom expert in Canada. He is looking at how fungi can be used to "save the world" by cleaning polluted soil, replacing toxic insecticides and even treating viruses.

Read about him and the work he is doing with fungi here:

HT to @dani for sharing this originally.

Last night, at 1:30am when I couldn't sleep, I was on Pinterest looking at photos of succulents for #colouring inspiration. I got lots of ideas, but also realised I need more #Succulents in my life.

My gardening plant obsession and my colouring plant obsession are coming together 😃

Am very sad because there is a world of people out there that won't get the fungi joke :(

@GwenfarsGarden I guess that means I'm trying to get my hair to leaf out more.

OK, so it turns out lots of people say fun-gee, from different countries! How have I got to 53 and not heard it said this way before now?!!!!! Including from carbonspace friends?!
Rhetorical question ;)

My worldview is so dominated by plants, that when I think about trimming my hair, the word I use in my head, is pruning 🤣🌿

Today's #Maille: Earrings, quad 001, up on my Ko-fi shop. These are standard price, not clearance; we're still struggling but got our heads up to the surface for a quick breath. US$10 each includes shipping in contiguous USA, all others please enquire.

So, Stammers in Star Trek Discovery, keeps pronouncing fungi, as fun-gee, instead of fun-guy. I've not heard anyone ever pronounce fungi this way before, even by Americans I've, met from different parts of the US. So who pronounces it fun-gee, besides the writers on Discovery??!!

I did not know #sporespondence was a thing, but I love it!
Here's some cute fungi growing from a small piece of wood.
