harvested the first Pak Choi for chicken stir-fry tonight

Monday, Jul 11, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

the pak choi are growing well, might be able to harvest some of the bigger ones soon

Wednesday, Jun 29, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

planted two punnets of Pak Choi seedlings (11 plants)

Saturday, May 28, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

one last zucchini filling out, although the plants don't seem to realise winter has arrived

Friday, May 6, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

Jo started on pulling out the dead tomato plants but I'd injured my back, couldn't bend over, so didn't help!

Sunday, Apr 3, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

picked all the remaining green tomatoes

Saturday, Apr 2, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

zucchini plants are dying off, but still producing flowers

Thursday, Mar 31, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

we're getting towards the end of the tomatoes, I picked a few handfuls today and the rest will be in a race against the warm weather

Wednesday, Mar 16, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

the zucchini have nearly finished, there are around seven finger-sized ones still growing, about the same number smaller, yellow and starting to rot

Tuesday, Mar 15, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

Almost a dozen finger-size zucchini, but they just won't get any bigger, either needs more water or compost

Monday, Feb 21, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

plenty of tomatoes ripened over the weekend, the zucchini stubbornly refuse to get any bigger

Sunday, Feb 20, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

four zucchini that grew while we were away now harvested, two quite large

Thursday, Jan 20, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

picked three near perfect small tasty-looking zucchini before they escape to become zeppelins

Wednesday, Jan 12, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

I have picked the first home-grown zucchini, it suddenly got much larger after the rain

Saturday, Jan 8, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

tomato and zucchini plants growing well, the capsicums look quite small and undeveloped

Tuesday, Jan 4, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

the first of our zucchini look about ready to pick, first produce of the new garden beds

Monday, Jan 3, 2022

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

dug up the "garlic crop" and it was a complete dud, two, pea-sized bulbs from four plants

Saturday, Dec 4, 2021

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

two of the capsicum seedlings are broken and dead, we suspect the cat has walked on them, but have no proof

Thursday, Nov 11, 2021

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

planted out three punnets in the new garden beds; tomatoes, capsicum, zucchini

Saturday, Nov 6, 2021

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

A cubic metre of topsoil was delivered, many barrow-loads were moved from driveway to vege gardens

Friday, Nov 5, 2021

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

planted out eight or so bulbs of "planting garlic" between roses and citrus trees

Saturday, May 8, 2021

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

down to three beetroot seedlings, all with leaves eaten off, all dug up and dumped by cat digging up the soil

Wednesday, Mar 17, 2021

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

bought and assembled a second timber garden bed & weed-mat, the only way to keep the feral grass out is isolation!

Saturday, Feb 27, 2021

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

finally assembled the timber raised garden bed and picked a spot for it – now to line it, fill it and grow something

Saturday, Feb 20, 2021

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

planted Cam's bean seedlings out into the garden, the science experiment is over

Saturday, Sep 12, 2020

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

left-most snake bean is now a metre up the trellis work

Tuesday, Dec 19, 2017

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

snake beans are just tall enough to start touching the trellis

Monday, Dec 4, 2017

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

intended to buy tomato seedlings at Oakleigh Rotary market, but didn't go due to rain

Sunday, Nov 26, 2017

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

everything wet and green, we really should get some tomato plants

Saturday, Nov 25, 2017

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

more rain, snail pellets out around beans and beetroot, about half the beetroot gone

Thursday, Nov 23, 2017

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

three beans looking healthy, not quite reached the trellis yet, some leaf nibbles

Wednesday, Nov 22, 2017

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

possums have eaten off about a third of the beetroot plants at ground level

Fairly sure its possums and not snails from the way it all looks eaten

Wednesday, Nov 15, 2017

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

another bean seedling half eaten, we suspect possums this time. Two and a half left

Monday, Nov 13, 2017

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

Three bean seedlings good, two mediocre, two dead

As far as I can tell the two seedlings against the garage wall have died or been eaten or both, one or two of the ones along the fence are wilting, and three or look strong and are definitely growing more leave

Tuesday, Nov 7, 2017

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

bean seedlings against the garage are being eaten, despite the snail pellets

We’re not sure what is eating them though

Wednesday, Nov 1, 2017

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

the cat dug up one of the bean seedlings to shit in the vege garden again

Thursday, Oct 26, 2017

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

With 17mm of rain overnight, the bean seedlings look well established, most of the beetroot too

Wednesday, Oct 25, 2017

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

a cat dug up the bean garden bed to shit, I've replanted the bean seedlings

One completely dug out and buried, another dislodged.

Tuesday, Oct 24, 2017

@ [Adrian Tritschler]

Adrian Tritschler

a punnet of beetroot seedlings and one of snake beans planted out

Both survived their first night without devastation by possum. Seven snake bean plants, five against the back fence and two against the garage wall – probably too gloomy for them. Dozens of beetroot seedlings, some in the raised garden bed and some between the orange and lime trees.

…The Owner

There’s not much more I can add to who I am.

…The Site

Vanity site? Technology experiment? Learning tool? Blog? Journal? Diary? Photo album? I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you…

I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.

Its all been here a fairly long time. Like the papers on my desk, or the books on the bedside table, the pile just grew… and it all grew without much plan or structure. I try not to break URLs, so historical oddities abound.

Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried PHP, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on Emacs Org mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is Org mode and hugo.
