Setting up a server we plan to use to host #foss, possibly #decentralized applications like #pleroma, #matrix, #peertube, #nextcloud, independent websites and other tools.
Aim is to help local projects, #circularEconomy structures and other like-minded people and projects to get the data back in their hands.
We are doing the whole thing as a #faircoop local node atm, and part of the funds for the server were donated by faircoop. Server itself is physically hosted in Naples, at the Ex-Asilo Filangieri
I am happy to see how many veggies can grow underneath a small 6 sqm polytunnel.
Right now plants are not doing better than the outside ones, but it's a good insurance in case of bad weather.
Since I do not mulch anymore here (plants are very close), irrigation is automated and I don't have to worry about bad weather... is basically a 1 day job and don't think about it again until food is ready!
Reusable coffee cups are just a drop in the ocean for efforts to save our seas
They are easily marketable strategies to attract 'environmentally-minded' customers though
seems like the experiment of growing oyster mushrooms on simple recycled cardboard is going good, they are pinning easily... not sure how nutritious they'll come up to be though. Any idea on how the boost it?
Ok, that's my new compost bin.
The 220 l barrel is resting on those small 4 wheels, so that turning it just takes a few seconds, and inside there are 2 half pvc tubes to help mixing.
It is my first compost tumbler, so we'll see how it goes. My main concern is that it reaches the critical mass needed to trigger the composting process, and that is doesn't take long (I need quick compost).
Meanwhile it looks good, and using it is really so easy that even my 9 yo brother can do it!
(Pink lighter on the side for scale reference, I'm sure @PonderingCreek will appreciate)
Seems like my #VerticalGardening is working... spinach, cabbages, lettuce and 2 tomatoes (just to experiment). The fertility is replenish by #composting kitchen scraps from an increasing amount of neighbors, which I plan to repay in food.
That's just a test, if it works properly I expect my yard walls to be covered by fall =D
This is the Fiascone, or Re Umberto #tomato. It's native from the Amalfi coast, and is probably the father of more famous tomatoes like the San Marzano. First accounts of it is at the end of the 19th century, when was donated to King Umberto.
Was thought lost, until a few years ago some plants have been found, and now is a must have for every seed-saver in my area!
Strong plant, easy to cultivate, quite pest resistant, solid in drought.
This specific ripe fruit is quite small because it was grown in pot, but the green on the side is the same variety grown in ground.
Personal favorite tomato of mine.
I put way more effort into this one, but it may still suck.
I'd love an opinion if someone reads it, especially if you are into the environmental or psychology field.
Matters I try to understand here:
* What are the psychological effects of climate change?
* How do people cope with it?
* How do you open an eggplant with an hammer?
Right now all this complicated, carbon intense pieces of engineering that were cutting the edge of technology not long ago are used for stuff like holding my #coffee and support my #wormcomposting barrel, but I feel is not right. This lack of permanence in electronic drives me crazy =(
"You wouldn't believe it, a lot of stuff just came out from the mulch!"
"Woah, nice, I'll come to give a look"
I'm pretty sure there used to be a path below all this pumpkins...
