my Ozark beauty hasn't put out any flowers since early June :/ this is the one that's battling red stele so I've been lenient but cmon. it put out some runners tho, and I let some of them root in order to have a hopefully disease free plant next year (and I'll be using some preventative measures for this one), but I just cut them all off just now to hopefully get the parent plant to put out flowers again
found some aphids on my carrots today. both pots had some affected leaves but I only found actual aphids on one leaf. they seem to swarm around one leaf at a time, so I just cut that one off and threw it out. I moved the pot I found them in away from everyone else and I'll keep an eye on it and the other carrots, spoons permitting
also the strawberry is still losing leaves to The Redness ™️but seems to be putting out new leaves at about the same rate? so maybe it won't survive the winter but I'm confident I will get some sort of berry harvest from it (also I plan on planting some seeds from the first fruit I harvest)
had enough time this morning to give a garden a thorough inspection for the first time in a while. the tomatoes are putting out flowers, the first strawberry fruit is nearly ripe, the carrots are coming along alright (did a bit of weeding among the in ground ones), and the lettuces are enjoying the unusually cool june weather so much that even though I just harvested two salads from them the other day, they really need to be harvested again
and I'm very happy rn c:
An exciting announcement, solarpunk
I've been keeping quiet about this, but I can finally share!
My friend and I are officially contracted for a book from the West Virginia University Press's series Salvaging the Anthropocene. Our book, Almanac for the Anthropocene: A Compendium of Solarpunk Futures, will focus primarily on collecting practical, substantive applications of #solarpunk thought. And we are currently accepting submissions/pitches!
nb solarpunk witch, trying to figure out how this works
