Oh, this looks (sounds) really wonderful.

I especially want to check out the recent episode with Duron Chavis.

And I quite like their update from this week:
Happy new year gardeners, it was a long - really long - 2020 and it will not be a short 2021 by all forseeable measures. Especially after yesterday. And that’s OK, we are Gardeners we can work with determination, patience, and faith
Lovely.

Thanks so much for posting this, spamandkimchi - I've just subscribed.

For a while I've dreamed of participating in a community garden. At my new place in central Mexico, the owner of the building was planning a rooftop garden just as I moved in.

I'm not a great gardener, but my contribution of a compost tumbler is most welcome... and guess what, I get to know my Mexican and gring@ neighbors a little bit better into the bargain.

Tl;dr: this is highly relevant to my interests.
