Adrian Tritschler's stuff
My website, an agglomerative mess, probably half-eaten by a gru
Jo started on pulling out the dead tomato plants but I'd injured my back, couldn't bend over, so didn't help!
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
the zucchini have nearly finished, there are around seven finger-sized ones still growing, about the same number smaller, yellow and starting to rot
Almost a dozen finger-size zucchini, but they just won't get any bigger, either needs more water or compost
two of the capsicum seedlings are broken and dead, we suspect the cat has walked on them, but have no proof
down to three beetroot seedlings, all with leaves eaten off, all dug up and dumped by cat digging up the soil
bought and assembled a second timber garden bed & weed-mat, the only way to keep the feral grass out is isolation!
finally assembled the timber raised garden bed and picked a spot for it – now to line it, fill it and grow something
possums have eaten off about a third of the beetroot plants at ground levelFairly sure its possums and not snails from the way it all looks eaten
Three bean seedlings good, two mediocre, two deadAs 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
bean seedlings against the garage are being eaten, despite the snail pelletsWe’re not sure what is eating them though
a cat dug up the bean garden bed to shit, I've replanted the bean seedlingsOne completely dug out and buried, another dislodged.
a punnet of beetroot seedlings and one of snake beans planted outBoth 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.
There’s not much more I can add to who I am.
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.
