@wait_sasha I originally learned the basics of gardening in Canada and found that there are very different challenges in the tropical climate where I live now.

This video talked about some really helpful ideas, in particular "STUN - Sheer Total Utter Neglect", an approach to select for plants that are productive without maintenance by leveraging high genetic diversity and natural selection.

@wait_sasha personally I've been experimenting with "hugelkultur" lately, to try and get more plants growing from less soil.

@wait_sasha I mostly intended this post as snark aimed at some people talking about "decentralization" in the context of blockchain or the american individualist flavour of "prepping".

It's cool to hear that you're getting into growing, though! The fediverse has lots of people sharing their experience via and

oh you like decentralization? my friend, what vegetables are growing in your garden? my brother, how is your soil produced? dearest comrade, how many worms live in your compost?

@cyberministry @Gargron it's easy to forget this, bu ttwitter was around for a long time before the general public knew or cared. based on their total numbers even now that's probably still true

the watermelon seeds I planted about a week ago have sprouted 😍

what if instead of 'artificial' intelligence we call them 'superficial' intelligence, because they only give off the appearance of intelligence at this point

@Seirdy I set up gogs on one of my servers around an hour ago to give it a spin. It worked well on my dev machine but in production it's horribly slow.

@_astronoMay your previous threads were super interesting!

...that said, the fediverse is typically slower than twitter and people will still be here to listen/read whenever you have the energy/motivation to post cool space stuff 😁

@rgegriff I pulled this with some coiner last week

..sometimes theft is good, actually

we agreed to disagree

cohost seems like a silly waste of time and I for one don't mind that the sort of people who think it's a good idea continue to exist somewhere other than on my timeline

@nev @whiskeysailor I worked at the Toronto castle for a few years in my early 20s and can confirm the work is super dangerous.

@ifixcoinops totally agree, but I'd like to add another reason to the pile.

They made a conscious decision to buy into a system that has no future and can only provide value at other people's expense. Even if the gear was in perfect condition I would find it both ethical and hilarious to ostracize them and prevent them from recuperating as much of their investment as possible.
