Gardening, diary 

Salads are sprouting fast due to the high temperatures of the last few days...
Took out a few of them even if they were not the size I wanted - picked some rocket salad and the first onion of the season i really need to put some little irrigation system to survive the summer :/

3 week later
(Zucchini are growing too much, I wonder if I should move a couple of them elsewhere)

Modular ActivityPub library in Elixir
This looks very interesting, I’ve not seen much ActivityPub in the Elixir space apart from Pleroma.

Just done the first of three #Sociocracy Facilitation Empowered Learning Circle Course sessions with @Gin @bernini and @mayel

Good stuff! Really useful to not just read about this, but put it into practice. I really valued being able to try strategies for when 'objections' aren't really objections, as well as three ways to integrate valid objections into modified proposals πŸ‘

Hello πŸ‘‹
we've started with the first round of beta testing πŸŽ‰
The activity consists of a video call of about 40mins in which you will be asked to perform 8 short tasks on a bonfire instance. Your feedbacks will greatly help us to catch bugs and improve the overall user experiences, as well as adding suggestions / ideas to our roadmap.
If you'd like to help us, please DM us and we'll figure out a day and time to go through it together 🀠

Ah, thanks a lot... I'm really following @bonfire to see where it's going and really like to try it. :)


excited at the idea that we're finally approaching our beta testing phase w/ @bonfire :)

@toastal @humanetech @fleshroots @bonfire makes sense! Bonfire is one of the most interesting projects RN, esp with the ValueFlows work!

update on the no-dig panel experiment:
I planted:
- 4 eggplants
- 4 peppers
- 6 zucchini
- 12 salads
probably too much for the spaces?
ah I've added a basic fence to avoid cats using it as their bathroom

my main curiosities are to check the amount of water it needs compared with a regular garden, and how it performs during dryness periods...

When I got covid I started studying about the approach to from Charles Dowding (which is sooo relaxing to listen to btw πŸ˜‚ )
Yesterday I built my first container...
I spent 49eur in total, all of them for buying 7 bags of compost (70L each), I recycled the wood and used a cardboard I preserved from ikea.
Dimensions are 115x265cm, for 490L of compost (it will likely require at least other 150L after I watered a bit)

Looking for some good resources to learn how to run proper beta testing interviews...
any hints?
