there's a jar in our fridge
from twenty fifteen!
the label says cherries
but the contents are green!

Thing is with giving artists unsolicited critique on their work is you have no idea the motivation behind their doing it and no idea what their desired outcome is.

Whatever you think they could have done to improve on it is often going to be wrong, even if you believe it's correct. Rarely are views and motivations on art going to align, and by giving unsolicited advice on how it could be done "better" you're just straight up being a dick.

mud, muck, filth, and grime. the 4 elements.

Can I keep my basil seedlings alive until it's warm enough to plant them out? I had six at the beginning of the winter. Four have mysteriously shrivelled up and died overnight. (Over a series of nights - they didn't all die together. It's been random and unexpected.)

I quickly googled and found out that I might be watering them too much, or I might be watering them too little, or I might be watering them too irregularly. So it's really in the lap of the gods.

There are beautiful basil plants available in the local supermarket for £3.50, but it's become a point of principle by now.

Watch this space for the thrilling outcome.

Good morning moonbeams.
No matter how small and insignificant you feel against the tapestry of our universe, there will always be someone or something that benefits from your existence.

#Florespondence: January Daisies. There have been only a few days of frost so far this year, so some things are blooming that... shouldn't be blooming, really. Even if they're cute.

This I'm working on my crop rotation plans. Will post about it in a bit of detail in the next week.

Food Not Bombs Manila really opened my eyes to just how much can be provided by mutual aid societies.

They serve not only free food, but an entire free market, a free school and even a free barbershop, it's so cool. :foodnotbombs:

Really enjoying "Restoration Agriculture" (Real world for farmers) by Mark Shepard.

Even if you're not a farmer, it's very interesting and helpful to get your head around how to design an inter-related garden system.

Also for some reason as I was cycling home today - trying to go across a junction - a car with the grim reaper sitting in the passenger seat let me cut in front of them.

Which was... nice?

I mean it may have just been a random person dressed all in black with a skull for a face. I was far too cool to react to the sight in any way and hopefully I won't find out for sure for years.

I got some compost worms shortly before the weather turned icy, and the food I had put in for them was not going down, so I was afraid I'd killed them by putting them in a worm tower in the garden.

But fortunately today now the weather is milder again half the food has disappeared, which I think means they're active and chomping down there.

Hurray! My worms are alive :)
