Adrian Tritschler's stuff
My website, an agglomerative mess, probably half-eaten by a grue
The three tiny pumpkins all died, rotted and fell off so we've pulled out the plant – so much for the pumpkin crop
the 2023 eggplant crop consist of one small purple eggplant, ripening nicely, but only a bit bigger than a golf ball
there are still a few green tomatoes in the garden, I suspect nothing more will ripen now that its getting cooler
builders had turned off the watering system tap so the vege. garden is all dried up, but harvested some toms
I have harvested the second tomato! Fingers crossed that the weather stays warm for long enough that the rest ripen up
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
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.
