#introduction
Hi! I'm K4.
I took up hobby gardening and amateur botany as a way to put my open-source software job down sometimes... until I noticed that those things could go together in new and interesting ways. I've been building an open, highly-queryable plant/growing database that anyone can edit or help curate. Nothing really to show off yet (I'm up to my eyeballs in initial data imports rn), but there is a blog up at blog.plantdata.io with project updates.

/me waves enthusiastically

@K4_713 hi! Best wishes! Already heard about growstuff.org/ ? (Am on the go - sorry if you address this elsewhere and I did not see.)

@brainwane Sumana! Long time no type! Yeah, I've looked at growstuff.org a little. There's definitely a lot of overlap, but their approach seems to be rooted(<--ha) in user data and individual experiences with plants, and I *think* that's probably going to remain adjacent territory, project-wise...
Nice to see you around!

@K4_713 Oh hi it's YOU! Glad to see you. Thanks for the kind reply!
