Approx one half of my early season . It's not super pretty yet, alas, but I'll do some closeups over the next few days. Seeds should go out this evening, I think: ice plants in the rectangle there and as filler elsewhere, some rosemary, some catnip. ๐Ÿ˜

Just hooked up an Instagram->Mastodon IFTTT connection using @kelsonv's instructions: I'm not very prolific (1/day at most), so we'll see how this goes if I remember to take a photo of my in the morn.

It's such a relief to have some of my damn plants outside. ๐Ÿ˜ค It was a bit of after dark tonight, but I got 2/3 of the jades and tiger tooth(s/teeth?) repotted, plus the pencil trees and other misc succulents.

The cacti are waiting until daylight. ๐Ÿ˜’

They're ready to go, tho. My babies are budding: ๐Ÿ’ƒ

Told my co-worker that I don't have a Facebook account, I only have a Mastodon account.

Their reply? "Oh, I have a Mastodon account too!"

@Maenad "STEMlords" is my new favorite word. Thank you. ๐Ÿ˜

"share your story as a female in STEM"

"I get called FEMALE by a bunch of STEMlords afraid to say WOMAN"

Well, I need to add content and stuff to it, but OokTech now officially has liberapay and patreon and where you can support us (and robbie, because robbie is awesome).

@inmysocks I shall... strongly set up good clicking systems. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Also discovered Cookie Monster ( which is awesome.

o no. I really did open Cookie Clicker.

...And click it.

I haven't played this in years. *falls back in*

I learned very early in my career that the Pragmatic Programmer duo ( automated their book building process. That my first instance of "Oh, you can automate [almost] *anything*."

So now that I'm making roleplaying books in ConTeXt, I'm like, "Fuck yeah, automation." Jenkins should have no trouble with this. ๐Ÿ˜ค I'm probably write up a blog post on the nuts and bolts of it once I get it.

I'm really struggling to find garden planning tools that are suited to my scenario: primarily succulents/cacti; in containers; surfaces are the ground, two windowsills, and a small table. I can get one that represents a "patio" okay, but not one with a spread of plant sizes (pot sizes range from 3" to 12" or so).

I have a feeling I'm going to just end up with something in Google Drawing, but it'd be nice to have an inventory of pots, an inventory of plants, and the ability to mix and match.
