@Gina Wow, so many! Here's my full garden harvest for the year. I'm getting close to being self sufficient..

@hund First picture, "tabs" with the icon missing, making it look like a header.


Holy shit, thats a lot of "advertising partners" in the consent form.

708 across three tabs, many you have to "manage your choices" directly with them.

@daz Great, thanks! None of these came up with a search for "GitHub pages alternatives", it was all azure pages and such. I'll probably go for surge, looks about the feature set I need.

@Gina If you're buying the paint from Gamma, some of the Histor machines have illicit Farrow & Ball copies programmed in, and they'll have swatches under the counter. F&B have some really nice blue / greens.

I'd also recommend the Histor extra matt paint, but I've found it's better to water it down a little.

This tiny vice perfectly rides the line of cheap piece of crap, and really useful.

The same day I planted these, I had a salad with sprouting chickpeas in it. Decided to plant one also, but didn't think it would survive the dressing. Doesn't seem to have harmed it through, as it's growing really well.

Seed update:

Rocket is really starting to grow, will have to put them in soil soon.

Seeds update; they've both started spouting and already have leaves! The Rocket seeds seem to clump together, hopefully they'll separate as they grow.

Yeah, this is the finest stuff I had, I'll probably have to drain it through a cloth.

A friend mentioned I should keep them in the dark until they have leaves so it's more like being in soil (last time I just had it on the window sill). Did you do that? I'm more likely to forget they exist if they're not in front of me.

My other seeds seem to be non-starters. I think they got too hot, as I had them in a greenhouse made from a storage crate, and it was unusually hot weather.

Thought I would try sprouting the remaining broccoli and rocket seeds in the same way as the lentils, see how it goes.

Before I ate them, I transferred a few to some seeding pots, and they're growing really well.

Not sure what a lentil plant looks like or if they will survive the Dutch climate, but will be fun to find out.

About a month ago, I watched Atomic Shrimp's video on "bio snacky", that's basically a jar with mesh on it for sprouting beans (Video here: youtu.be/30CIZyAIsFk ) and decided to try myself.

I didn't have any mung beans so I used lentils. It went really well, and pretty much all sprouted. Ate them in a salad, just tasted like bean sprouts.
