@mastohost no rush but it looks like integration is in the works with Keybase.io!

Going Axe Throwing at Blue Ox in Connecticut

I'm exiting the stock market right now to lock in my gains. I have too much uncertainty and I'd rather hang out on the side lines for a bit.

Happy that cutting down those trees is already paying me back. My solar production for March 2019 equals my solar production for April 2018!

I planted out the rest of my potatoes today. I also uncovered the strawberriers and put the mulch on the potato bed. It's always amusing how if you figure out the order of operations, there really isn't much waste in the garden.

This weekend, I spent about 16 hours in the garden. Filled one of my beds with soil, planted out potatoes, and moved all the rocks and stones that I found up hill to my retaining wall. I'm pooped. I hope eventually all the energy I put into my infra will pay off by making my job easier in the future.

Ironic that a computer monitor is often called a "screen". This is to say a computer monitor does not show reality, it acts only as a filter to reality.

Does your current "filter", your screen, injects images and thoughts filling your reality with misery or happiness?

I started round 1 of my garden seeds! Tomatoes and peppers and some herbs.

Chitting potatoes for spring planting. I saved all the small potatoes to act as this years seed potatoes.

Ok, I finally turned my house tinkering into another full blog post, enjoy!:

(You too could save 69% on your hot water heating bill!)

Brewing 11 gallons of hard cider.

4 gallons from frozen concentrate.

7 gallons is cider with potassium sorbate (a chemical used to prevent yeast from multiplying).

It seems to be fermenting strong, I think the trick is to start the ferment with juice that does _not_ have the preservative to get the yeast population high and like 12-24 hours later introduce the juice with the sorbates.
