The jokers' schemes essentially boil down to disrupting the control that the monolithic city of Gotham has over its' communities. Meanwhile wealthy landlord Bruce Wayne sees his properties being squatted, reclaimed and/or destroyed as direct violence against himself and uses the vigilante justice of Batman to evict and violently detain people who don't want the 85th starbucks to open in their community.

Pre-emtive missed opportunity:

The Joker movie casts Joaquin Phoenix as the anarchist anti-hero to the right wing libertarian villain of Batman.

Fundamentally failed by a public sector that doesn't care about communities and the march of gentrification, the Joker is pushed to take drastic action.

Solving a problem poorly.

1. Deny the problem. Reject solutions. Stall.

2. Wait for a crisis.

3. Implement worst available solution. We don't have time to argue about better solutions. We're in a crisis.

4. Reject better solutions. We already have a solution, what more could you want?

The smell of plants apparently reduces stress, just another reason to plant more flowers and food plants in the city :)

My herbs are looking lovely though; the thai basil is pretty much in a position to start being used in some dishes and I have plenty of regular basil too.

The Kabochas have had a bit of a rough ride; the ones in pots have been fighting some kind of mildew and wilt. I plan on re-potting them to see if that helps. Meanwhile the one that's been planted in the ground is taking over the garden!

Many fruit have shrivelled on the vine as the plant has matured, however I now have a couple that look like they're going to hang around!

Any advice welcomed on treatment.

The chillis are doing ok, I'm impressed by the flavour. I think they're suffering from not being cut back before being overwintered. Many are spindly and defoliated. The most healthy of them are the ones that got injured and cut back.

I haven't harvested anything from my serrano pepper yet, but last years' crop from the same plant was disappointingly mild in the spice department. I'm going to wait for at least one of these to turn red and see what happens.

Garden update! My tomatillos are starting to really bear fruit. The most amazing thing is how resilient these little blighters are. They've been blown over by the wind, chewed up by snails, had bit fall off as a result...

The bits that were knocked off the plants were dutifully put in water, grew roots, and were repotted meaning that from 18 seeds I've now got a yield of 20-21 healthy plants!

Hey, so I've just discovered I've missed my 1 year #MastoAnniversary. It was on 11th August last year that I joined, as part of the Aug18 Birdsite exodus.

1 year - 🎉 🎈
