Serious Monday energy today: flat tire on the bike, 8-hour power outage, and starting the day without coffee. BUT, there’s a bright side! The guaranteed solution to Monday is on the way. It’s called Tuesday 😂

This is a special one: First blossom of my first garden!

But can also feel heartbreaking. I’m at war with the squirrels and slugs now.

@crcollins My condolences about that. My garden isn’t even mature enough to have aphids, but I’m afraid of what happens once the 10 or so tomato plants start filling out. It’s nerve-wracking!

@mosttoast I hear they enjoy beer…

@anomalon I tried this and it does seem to work. Just didn’t have enough grounds to protect everything.

Must drink more coffee :blobupsidedown:

@anomalon Ohhhh interesting idea! I was under the impression it needed to be used grounds. Not the case?

GARDEN UPDATE: Less than two weeks ago I potted up the little tomato seedlings. 12 days later, they are THRIVING!

... gonna have to learn how to preserve tomatoes, make tomato sauce, make salsa...

Six potted tomato plants with young green seedlings on a cloth-covered surface near a window.

@thepoliticalcat And next year, I will probably wait until mid April as well. I jumped the gun with a bunch of seeds and then we got a cold snap. But… I love learning and discovering all this stuff as I go.

@thepoliticalcat Thank you! I've been hardening everything that I potted up (like the tomatoes) but it's not the cold that's decimating the garden. It's the squirrels and slugs.

@thepoliticalcat Is Sluggo organic, though?
GREAT tip for the tomatoes, thank you!

@thepoliticalcat That’s reassuring. Thanks for the knowledge.

"Consent Mode is off by default" should be the unofficial motto of the tech industry. https://www.theverge.com/2024/4/15/24130832/limitless-ai-pendant-wearable-meetings

@andybaio “it’ll be about AI agents that actually do stuff on your behalf, so Limitless can know everything about you and do everything for you and everything will be amazing.”

Nope. Don’t like that.

I think my garden is turning into a nursery…

(This all started with just one basil plant a few months ago. At this rate I’ll be starting a homestead by next year … 🤣)

@pitch Ah! Those are fabric “grow bags.” Portable, lots of sizes, and great drainage. (A baby blueberry plant is inside)

@deepmud Sometimes I need to thin out seedlings, and I don’t feel good about it. (They do go to the small compost pile, but still…)

@jnv I think I LIKE getting old, dammit.

Started playing Fallout Shelter again. It is addictive being free on many platforms.

@jnv I’m so mad that you reminded me of that game’s existence. Goodbye, productivity.

There isn't a single YouTuber covering the Fallout TV series who knows how to properly pronounce "nuclear." Not one.

How is the Fallout TV show this good? I thought video game adaptations (excluding The Last of Us) were supposed to be shit 🤣

@BigAngBlack and who actually are fans of the source material. What an amazing motivator…

Nature is ridiculous! This transformation of the strawberry runners I ordered happened within ONE WEEK. They arrived after being in the mail for 6 days. I just stuck the roots in water for a couple hours, planted them, and voila. Thriving. This will never stop blowing my mind.

@Annekin Heh, I know exactly what you mean! When you walk out one morning and see those first sprouts, it’s magical. When you walk out a few days later and see that little sunflower sprout climb to an inch or two, it’s unreal.
