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?
Same thing is to be said about Australia. How will it handle refugee crises, since it's heading more and more in the South East Asia direction?
I can also see how America is getting closer to Russia, while the relationship with Europe are, how to say, divergent. But that's temporary: I'm sure the two will get united again.
With some friends we are setting up a local informal environmentalist group, with the aim of pushing forward good practices, spread sustainability, ecological awareness, and this kind of #solarpunk. stuff.
So far we are planning of doing #permaculture , #food production, #composting workshops, #Seed library, #GuerrillaGardening, collective purchase from #RegenerativeAgriculture farms, but we'd like to have more on the todo list.
Help me get out of our echo chamber, and give me your ideas about more activities we could engage ourselves and the local communities in.
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
It is quite difficult to explain evolutionary stable strategies (and their relation to the environmental situation) to people without getting your hands dirty with long #GameTheory examples.
I found this really neat online interactive guide that really, feels a lot like a game and is very enjoyable.
Give it a try!

This is a photograph of Earth and the Moon taken from 1.44 billion km away, on July 19 2013.
Everyone you've ever known is living out their life here, on this little blue jewel, glittering faintly in the sunlight.
This tiny, delicate planet is all we have in the vastness of the Universe. Every living thing on it is part of our extended family.
All of us together, against a backdrop of unending darkness.

I've seen the #avangers infinity wars twice now, but I still don't get #Thanos plan. Maybe someone who read the comics could help? Show more
I understand he wants to kill half of the population in each planet, but:
* Are the lifeforms going to be like half of each species by individual, by the kilo..?
* Or will it be half of the total life, so it wouldn't matter how much of each species is present?
* Is he considering viruses a form of life?
* Will be half of each age, for example half of kids, half of adults, half of old people..?
* Will it be randomized in terms of location? For example, half every x square meters?
So many questions...

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.
