I guess with the influx of new users to the Fediverse, we're doing introductions now, so here's mine:

So this whole # # experiment has been a smashing success. This will be the last post I boost from my legacy accounts, and I'll be checking them with less frequency. If you've not followed the new account, now would be a good time.

I want to extend a special thanks to opencube and fosstodon for giving me my first taste of the #.

Day 59


The heat's really been taking a toll. Lost one of the pepper plants, and the peas aren't looking good. I'm trying to step up the watering to compensate, but we'll see how that goes.

On the plus side, the remaining two pepper plants seem to be thriving.

Day 61


In a promising turn of events, I noticed the beginnings of our first pea pod today while watering the plants.

Day 12


So, one of my lettuce plants seems to have recovered like nothing even happened yesterday. One of the others appear to have some green developing again as well, which is surprising since I was sure it was dead.

Day 25


Nothing major to report today.

Day 26


One of my pea plants has been kibda flopping around in the wind. I winder if I should reinforelce it somehow?

peas need to cling to something as far as I know. With my tomatoes of that size I use BBQ skewers as their initial supports and then later when they're planted in their big pots they get bamboo or other wooden sticks.

Day 27


Plants are growing nicely. I'm hoping to pick up something that I can use to prop up the pea plants today. They're getting a little out of control.

Day 28


With all the running around yesterday, I wasn't able to pick up anything to act as a trellace for the peas. One of the pea plants has started clinging to the other now. I should probably do something about that.

Day 29


Finally managed to find something to prop up the pea plants.

Day 30


Still having a bit of trouble getting the pea plants to cling to the "trellace" I made for them. Coming along nicely otherwise.

Maybe the plastic straws are too smooth, so the tentacles ignore them or slide off. Try using some twigs instead.
@๐’€ญRalf Muschall๐Ÿ™- Possible, but the one on the left has grabbed on. It's kind of wrapped a tendril around it.

Day 31


The pea plants are doing a little better now.

Day 32


A tomato and poblano pepper plant have sprouted, but something's been eating at one of my orange sun pepper plants.

Day 40


I've been otherwise occupied lately, and haven't paid my garden much heed for the past few days. On top of that, it's been crazy hot lately. My poor pea plants seem to have suffered the worst from my neglect.

Hopefully I'll be able to nurse them back to health.
