The pansy is looking a little worse for wear... I think there was too much detergent in my anti aphid spray 😓

It's still very much alive though. I also potted some ginger that had started sprouting!

Things are continuing in the garden nicely. We have our first pea flower, some strawberries are starting to form, the lemongrass is progressing nicely. And my tomatillos are starting to get nice and bushy!

Our frontman hosted his first episode of Rantbox TV on role of stories in modern culture. We had some pretty cool discussions about storytelling, capitalism, justice narratives, the portrayal of evil. All in all pretty enjoyable:

I think video from vsauce is pretty important - it highights the flaws in human reason. It also starts to touch on important ideas about our evolutional need to exist in communities:

I'm a regular guest on RantboxTV, and this time I got to share some of my knowledge on the subject of #NFT. I'm not an expert in blockchain technologies, but I think I have enough understanding to know why it doesn't gel with me. I appear in the second half to talk about some of the percieved negatives.

I intend to do research going forward on alternatives wrt smart contracts and how we value music; all input welcome!

The yuzu tree dropped leaves quite dramatically but seems to have stabilised. I haven't seen a lot of new growth yet, I'm hoping things will recover again soon.

The beets and radishes are starting to grow quite nicely, and I have placed gherkins between each row. They might be a bit packed in... I'm still learning. The peas has to be moved because of plans for the balcony, I had to leave a fair chunk of my largest plant - which is a little sad. The habaneros are all potted too!

BIIIIG GARDEN UPDATE THREAD

Most things are now potted and out of the greenhouse. I have a nice range of herbs, some veg, and a few chrysanthemums.

I'm playing the Soul Reaver/Legend of Kain series in what is basically reverse release order. How are the games getting better the further back I go? Soul Reaver 2 is the first in the series I played and has big nostalgia value, but the original sour reaver seems to clearly be a better game. It feels like the devs kept taking features out of the original game without remembering to replace them with something 🤔
