From the Solarpunk Aesthetic tumblr:

Biotechnologist Marin Sawa and her University of London research group have created a proof-of-concept for printing solar cells onto paper using carbon nanotubes and cyanobacteria.

This technology is "[...] capable of generating a sustained electrical current both in the dark (as a ‘solar bio-battery’) and in response to light (as a ‘bio-solar-panel’) with potential applications in low-power devices."

Finally, here's a big sluggo. A big slimy boy!

Damn was this trip good though. Guzzled down about a quarter gallon of water. Learned to identify a new plant. Saw gorgeous scenery!

Parks are great y'all. 💚

Half a mile uphill, then another half a mile through hilly terrain gets me to the falls. On the way back I detour slightly to check out the remnants of one of the old water dams as well. 💙

This trail used to be coal mining territory; signage tells you to be careful of collapsed tunnels! Thankfully I am not a truck and not too worried about the 5000 lb limit.

The trailhead had pictures of flowers, so I decided to play a little scavenger hunt. I never found wild rose, but I did find some lovely foxglove 🦊! Also found what look remarkably similar to raspberries!

I'd seen mention of other gardeners using plastic bottles and plastic bottle components as makeshift greenhouses for seedlings, so I thought I'd try it out with the basil. We'll see how it goes :]

Baby greens from the garden! If I've done this correctly, the plants should keep producing new leaves, ensuring more salads to come 🍃

We have all 🎵

A device that uses clay soil and tiny grass seeds to 3D print structures that will later grow grass and become green.

-Not pictured: basil plants (still sprouting)

I'm still a fledgling gardener, so tips for further expansion into growing food at home are appreciated!
