Things I like:

- growing stuff and helping people grow stuff is my passion and way I connect with the greater world

- part of my interest in emergent technology lay in exploring the applications of automation

- I have a philosophical underpinning, including the 4 fundamental software freedoms, that puts free and open source software at the heart of free and open thought.

- the more we integrate with the natural world the better.

Legal 🍍Cannabis🍍 Garden Penultimate Update:
I've never grown a strain that wanted to live so damned long. Starting week 9 and there is just a shade of ripening trichomes, just visible to the naked eye but under 30x mag they turn into little crystal mushroom forests that I watch turn from clear->cloudy->orange, indicating ripeness.

It's hard to get a good photo of at this point; I've been beating them up with high nutrients and lighting.

and a cheeky tag.💚

Like beasts from the unfathomable deep
They emerge, hungry, from their sleep.

I wish there was more uptake of Mastodon and the Fediverse by activists like the author of this article:
medium.com/@DeoTasDevil/the-rh

What sort of solution do we have for long format blogs with high quality writing like Medium has managed to capture?

@rgo You may want to follow this coming series of post on comparing #friendica and #hubzilla: diasp.eu/posts/962c3e10-585c-c
(I found the post on diaspora and I see the author is also on mastodon but I didn’t find the same detailed post: @danie10).

@rgo I use both - Friendica probably has an edge over Hubzilla in terms of functionality and connectivity to other networks, but to install it to host your own node may find Hubzilla a shade easier (Softaculous has an easy script install for Hubzilla).

Has anyone evaluated the other Fediverse offerings? Realitically, I'm considering a Hubzilla or Friendica node.

I want a longer format post and control over media.

Oh yeah. I know it's not everyone cup of tea, but we honestly get excited when the Google street view gets updated.

I'm honestly surprised that our little, privacy obsessed, valley wasn't abuzz when they came through last fall.

Latest chapter of ‘Radical Gardening’ is an uncomfortable one, charting the links between organic gardening and right wing politics, even Nazi ideology, in the 20th century. I’ve always seen it as such a ‘lefty’ thing.

Watched the "Suits" episode of Love Death & Robots. Lose the guns, replace an exoplanet with restricted access prairie and replace the cows with woolly mammoth and you have my fantasy job.

Personal 🍍Cannabis🍍 Garden Week #4 of Flowering:
This is when you start to see the flower production go into overdrive. White hairs are apparent on almost every budding site and if they are not you should consider pruning back harder the growth that isn't maturing. This has to do with the hormones

The odour of cannabis is getting stronger and extra pungent when you handle the plants.

32000 years ago, during the last ice age, an Arctic ground squirrel was gathering food, which it took back to its burrow. That squirrel never ate all of the fruit and seeds it stashed, and so they stayed there, buried under the Arctic permafrost. Forgotten.

Until the squirrel's ancient home was discovered by a group of Russian scientists. The research team managed to grow 36 plants from those ancient seeds. Here's one of them – an ancient type of campion (Silene stenophylla).

How did I miss this in the news cycle? Potential for life on Mars? Such a game changer:

Absolutely incredible if true.

Personal 🍍 Cannabis 🍍 Garden Week 3 of Flowering. Ballast set @ 1000w , and the new exhaust system is humming along tied to existing timer for lamp.

✂️ This is the week you aggressively prune the lower growth and start to really turn up the nutrients EC.

If you don't have a space for gardening, sprouts are easy to grow indoors any time of the year.

To this chart I would add soybean sprouts, which have have a nice texture and are a good source of protein. Sprouting also makes them easily digestable.

It's been so long since i've posted stuff I've lost track a bit - but I don't think i've posted any #patreon stuff for a while. Here's the process gif for this one! It's
uncharacteristically decisive in it's realisation, by my own standards.
