Awesome! Interested to see your setup. I currently have a problem with my two worm boxes. They are full of pillbugs (which love to eat seedlings). I probably need to start over by picking out all of the worms and providing fresh bedding + food. This chore will take several hours, even if I manage to persuade my children to assist, so I've been putting it off. Is it worth the effort? Aak! Also I just started another general gardening channel (before seeing yours). So maybe I should delete and we grow one channel together? Let me know what you think. :)

Art imitates life. This is the dark corner of the kitchen. As you can see I've barely made a dent in the piles of pears.

Throwback doodle. Because it's that time of year when *somebody* is fortunate enough to deal with all of the Asian pears, two trees' worth. If they are not picked, bears will visit. They are nice pears, but roughly golf ball-sized. Some are riper than others. If you wait too long to pick them, they get bugs in the cores. So this year I picked *all of them* a week or two earlier than usual, and after a couple of hours of peeling and chopping this afternoon, my right hand was a bit cramped like a claw. The rough length of time it took to process and can the first batch of ginger pears and dark ginger pear syrup is the time it took to listen to three episodes of CoinGeek Conversations: 1) Sheila Warren: Using blockchain to stop corruption and improve school meals | CoinGeek Conversations https://youtu.be/M-2MT7ynL1E 2) Lee Rainie: Can blockchain restore trust in technology? | CoinGeek Conversations | https://youtu.be/3jUG_w-PgVQ 3) Eric Bernhard: COVID-19 Preventative Tokens Built on BSV | CoinGeek Conversations | https://youtu.be/dgFvJPiTpq4 If you also have a lot of pears, for whatever reason, this is the recipe I used: https://www.foodiewithfamily.com/two-in-one-pears-canning-ginger-pears-dark-ginger-pear-syrup-and-ginger-pear-juice-make-ahead-monday/ The dark ginger pear syrup is delicious. To be drizzled on ice cream or mixed with soda water, etc.

"The way of truthfulness". p.s. I'm making a SD calendar for 2021! This will probably be the cover image. Stay tuned ... This doodle is inspired by: https://craigwright.net/blog/bitcoin-blockchain-tech/satoshi-or-the-solution-to-nakamotos-dilemma/

Un-illustrated garden notes: -after years of reading about beer traps for slugs, I've finally discovered that using grapefruit halves/rinds face down on the soil works well in a West/Wet Coast garden where it rains constantly (too much work and waste to refill with beer after every rain). The slugs crawl under the grapefruit rinds in the early morning and you can collect them to remove from the area with tender growing plants. -pill bugs, roly poly bugs, sow bugs... HOW DOES ONE GET RID OF THESE? I think they came from the worm compost bin. And fall leaves that were used as mulch. They ate all of the bush bean tips in one bed. They are everywhere. Boo.

One of my favourite annuals, nasturtiums. Their seed pods can be used to make a capers-like pickle. These are taking over a corner of the herb garden. The flowers are edible too.

The right plants do well in the right conditions. These black eyed Susans are coming back nicely in a location that gets afternoon sun, although slugs were an issue in the spring. I planted three clumps last year and they're between a row of sunflowers (behind) and a row of bush beans (in front). I'm expecting that the mobs will be coming soon to rename these flowers (Rudbeckia hirta) which have a bit of a hideous common name (the black eyed part).

Cherry tomatoes, pretty self explanatory. We had quite a cold and wet June and I didn't have the potted tomatoes sheltered from the rain, so a lot of the lower leaves looked unhappy. I hacked/pruned all of the lower branches off of the bottom foot of the vine or so. We'll see what happens.

Arctic lupins, no longer flowering. I transplanted five clumps from my late mother's garden (back in March) where they were taking over the pathways. Even though these plants have long taproots (not recommended for transplanting), I managed to dig and yank them out, dunk them into a bucket of water for the five minute drive home, and relocate them into my current garden. Four of the five clumps survived the relocation. The young plants were severely challenged by slugs. They eventually flowered, although the stalks of purple flowers looked a bit wimpier than usual. I propagated a couple of extra plants by taking cuttings (tried that for the first time) and rooted them in pots to make new plants. Plastic bags propped over the pots helped for extra humidity during the first couple of weeks while the cuttings grew their roots.

Basil is starting to grow in the balcony box, from a random assortment of herb seeds shaped like blocks of chocolate, direct sown.

Red shiso is a Japanese herb that has a growth habit like basil. This year, I've used it as a basil substitute in salads and pasta dishes, since the very old basil seeds I tried to germinate did not happen this year.

Posting some garden notes for 2020. (p.s. Regular doodles will be back soon. I needed a minute to think.) Leafcutter bees were visiting again. Last year they cut little circles out of the leaves from the Creeping Jenny groundcover. The bees use the leaf material in their nests. This year they are using leaves of the St. John's wort shrub that flowers in late June (around the time of Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day). I need to move this shrub because it grew since I planted it last year. I forgot that small plants usually fill out to be bigger than you imagined. It is spilling out onto the path right now and tied back with a string, which recently got caught on someone's bike and mangled the elaborate web of a support structure that was ready for a second crop of peas.

Limited time + network effects. People will hang out where the people they want to interact with also/already hang out. This is why most of my GenX friends and acquaintances still use Facebook. :(

I was busy sewing (a secret project) today. So I'm sharing an oldie, originally posted on May 24, 2018.
