Glad hearing. We spent a fair amount of effort experimenting with micro greens, it made sense to the rest but not really to me, and only in the recent weeks did we decide that we would go back planting what offers bigger leaves and hence more filling in our tummies. Had some home grown vegetables as a soup with anchovies this week too, helps with the digestion when we eat less meat. ^_^

well harvest is continuing with bushels of tomaotos and cukes and plenty of weeds.  winter squashes and melons are started.  plenty of spaghettis sauce and pickles are put up.  but the heat is slowing some stuff down - need to get more planted for fall but no time and has been over 100 with 75% humidity.  sucks.  still a few more potatoes to pick. grapes - damn squirrels and birds despite the nets have gotten some and some have been ready to pick and the rest are almost there but they are starting to raisin and rot so harvest this year is the most touch and go i have ever had.  trying to let them hang but may have to pick earlier to save and get what i can.  and many days of storms on the way too again with heat and humidity.  man the last 4 years i have had a tough time getting a decent amount of harvest for wine.  frustrated.  was able to get new nets for next year,  need to salvage again what i can but will have new for when i need them.

could use one more person like myself  to help out here.  Maybe Jeff can do a app for a Bodhi clone so i can get the help i need.

used tannoys for mixing

Sorry to stir up an old topic....but I just picked up a pair of old, blue, active Tannoys for cheap - a buddy had the red, passive versions back when they were new...I'm happy with them...that said, the Cantons and Genelecs that I have heard are definitely next level :)

 

Gardening, harvesting, beer/wine, code, metal - what's not to love here?!

Great to read you had a good harvest.

We had a good harvest too, not much, we have a small garden.

This year we have beets, parsnip, turnip, spinash, vigs, raspberries, strawberries, prunes, tomatoes (3 different kinds), courgette, cucumber and herbs: sage, oregano, mint (5 kinds), thyme, lemon balm etc...

Lots of peppers jalapegnos and habaneros, we make our own sambal and pica (habanero peppers with unions in vinegar).

And prune jam: http://www.smartduck.nl/index.php?controller=post&action=view&id_post=5

tannoys are super and the canton karat series are so great too so clean you can and i have mixed and recorded stuff with them too.  before i bought the tannoys.

 

sounds like you had a great harvest too.  small garden yet done compactly can produce great stuff with decent soil.

jams are great - esp. in the winter with fresh baked jams and fresh eggs.

 

:-)))

Am handling compost in recent weeks as the neighbours started planting papaya trees that are a South East Asian solution for constipation. In general, reducing food waste whilst recycling organic materials from coffee powder till watermelon peels. The rotting stench can get quite pungent when decomposition is complete, nonetheless a cheap and effective eco-friendly approach in favour of Climate Action.

Off topic... but I know Tannoys and Cantons sound great.... but if you have the skills try to build your own monitors. I use Tang Band full range units, they sound amazing, very life like, like if the band sits in your room and lots of fine details.
