food, vegan fritters
one of my favourite meals, grate whatever random stuff you can find (in this case potatoes, leeks, and red pepper, but so far anything gratable worked...), and whatever flavour might be nice (garlic... etc), then form into patties, (optionally) coat in breadcrumbs (made from some ancient rock hard bread lying around), and fry until crispy.
I like eating them with soy sauce and raw ginger.
We started our online hackweek for trustroots.org! 🎆
Really nice to see a bunch of new people join 🤩
Feel free to join too, we're hanging out on mumble whilst working too.
(also sad to not to be having it in person at kanthaus as it was going to be)
food, homemade pesto (vegan)
I made my first sunflower seed + wild garlic pesto (vegan), yesterday.
very cheap too. abundant wild garlic growing now, sunflower seeds are cheap, then a bit of the cheapest olive oil in the shop. it should have some lemon in it too, but we didn't have any, but some lemon-y salad dressing from the other day worked ok.
and we have no mixer, but the coffee grinder worked.
was super yummy. on bread (with sprouted seeds) or with pasta.
The "freedom to work from anywhere" slogan above was quite accurate.
A nice reminder about the United Fruit Company on the breakfast table this morning. A piece of neocolonial history sitting right there.
... and the cookies made from the pulp, yum
Now social.coop is on mastodon 2.9+ you can choose to use the single column layout. I just switched, and find it much less overwhelming to look at.

... and a little peak of ecotopia, this is a beautiful little picnic area in Snowdon national park we colonised for a couple of nights. All walkers coming through very interested and supportive. Although there was much rain, nothing a couple of tarps can't deal with. Add the fairy lights and it's paradise!
Just heading off now to join Ecotopia bike tour (https://www.ecotopiabiketour.net/). Quite excited. Also wondering how I'll be cycling with a group, I've done most of my cycle trips solo so far.
I was inspired seeing your lovely watercolour sketches on your cycle trip @distel - someone bought me a little watercolour set and I had a go!
I think last painting I did was probably 25 years ago in school :/
Any tips/advice/resources? ... I have some way to go ...
Just another wandering soul
