sorry that a lot of my posts for at least the next 2 months are going to be "top surgery +++ [show more]" but you know how it is

party for socialism and liberation's Milwaukee branch put together a seriously solid black power reading list!

it blows my mind that in other countries you dont file taxes, its just done automatically, and you have to file in the US because a software company specializing in selling you tax filing software has lobbied Congress enough to enshrine the entire industry.

Another #gardening question: On my zucchini plant, the blossoms keep getting removed. It looks like cuts. I don't think anyone is cutting my zucchini plants, do some animals do that? Sometimes they lay beneath the plant but soemtimes they are gone completely. That was my strongest zucc plant but it doesn't look so good anymore. :/

and finally!!! my newest bed, just finished today. this time I didn't want to wait for the grass to decompose soooo I ripped it out with my bare hands and a shovel. whew.

I started to pile all the grass up next to my compost bin in the background, but the wheelbarrow broke halfway through. gotta drag the rest over there soon. it's amazingly heavy. no wonder it took forever for my earlier plantings to break through.

anyway, this bed will have more beetroots, turnips, cabbages & some rutabagas!

lots going on here. the front third of the bed has one happy cabbage, one sad cabbage and a few more radishes. middle third is turnips which are doing nicely. uncovered in back are beetroots and carrots!

and here's my potato bed. holy smokes. big bastards. I love them. these were sowed later and by this point I had figured out that it's all about More Compost. the organic compost I've been buying is 5€ for a 45 liter bag, which isn't too bad but it does add up. the biggest investment in all this for sure.

the plan of course is to make as much compost myself as I can, which I've taken steps toward doing. I already compost all kitchen scraps and suitable paper but it's going to take way more...

second bed. with all the warmth lately, the peas seem to be undergoing a massive growth spurt one by one. one day they're shrimpy like the three in the foreground right, and then practically overnight they hulk out.

more onions to their left, and then a few potatoes that I'm not expecting too much from. I had extra potatoes and extra bed space, but the compost layer isn't nearly as thick as the bed I made specifically for potatoes, and it's made a big difference in the growth of the plants.

here's the first bed I planted out. broad beans on the right, onions back left, and my second crop of radishes under the bug net due to flea beetles.

some yellowing on the broad beans is bc I didn't use enough compost originally. it's a new no-dig bed, built on top of grass. until recently, the grass hadn't decomposed enough to allow access to the soil below, so the plants were limited to what I spread on top.

simply adding more compost has perked them up and allowed them to continue growing.
