I had imagined that the best case for growing strawberries was a nice harvest of strawberries, but the reality is that even when the plant is super productive the fruit all ripen asynchronously so it yields a berry every 3 days.

Anyone got tips for keeping raccoons away from tomatoes? *I* want to eat those tomatoes.

It’s really only notable because we’re in a city, so I’m assuming these bees are part of someone’s urban hive as opposed to living in the woods or something.

My flowers get a bunch of friendly honeybee visitors - just for my own curiosity, anyone know if there’s a way to find out where they might be based? Maybe a registry of beekeepers or something? I have zero reason to know, really, but why not find out if I can?

Free product suggestion for streaming music services: let me enable a setting that excludes kids’ songs from the suggestion algorithm. Sure, my toddler wanted to hear the wheels on the bus five times, but I could live without it in my own mix.

On the very slim chance you use envoyproxy/envoy-alpine anywhere in your stack, you should know they quietly dropped support for Alpine in favor of Distroless.

To have known about this change, you'd have to have followed every commit to their repo. They sure didn't announce it anywhere else, including on dockerhub where the now-discontinued image lives on, growing increasingly out of date.
