In 2021 im rebooting Tea Jay's Garden with a keen focus on providing evidence based information, free culture, and delving into organizing and mutual aid. It starts with:

No productive #gardening happened last summer, as I was distracted minding elderly parents through wildfire smoke events in a pandemic.

I'd like this summer to be different. A sunflower patch. The cardoon was recommended by a chef who lives on my street as better for this area. I want to see if these purple-pod peas grow as well as a previous varietal. I may save the beans for summer sowing to avoid slugs. My fave kale to make chips. And trying a new broccoli.

Every billionaire is a policy failure. Nearly every millionaire is a policy failure (selling a million books is not a policy failure). Every casino industry millionaire, though?

Definitely a policy failure.

Take Rodney Baker, who made $10.6m in 2019 as the CEO of the Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, a national racetrack and casino operator. Baker resigned on Sunday, because he did something despicable even by the standards of the casino industry.


Any know of a good way to handle callers? Im thinking of doing a call in show (like old school talk radio) but have no clue how to make that happen.

Im bored, think its time to start a late night chat show about @plants sex...

Just got back the results of a soil test and thought the results didnt make sense. Most of the micronutrients are a bit low and iron is really low, but the NPK, C, and S are off the charts.

It looks like a ridiculous case of over-fertilizing but nobodies done anything with that patch for 10 or more years...

Then i remembered, the dogs used that area as a restroom for years before i decided to clean it up and garden.

So a little iron chelate and nothing else for a while.

@plants 2020 is over but they will still happily take donations.

So I've set myself the goal this year of writing a book. I have zero clue what im doing but figured I'd give it a go. Im thinking a book on evaluating advice. Gardeners are generally keen experimenters but not especially great at good experimental design, evaluating studies, etc.,
