Definitely within the general asset system, FYI not sure if it's still there or needed, but I did leave a glass replacement stove cooktop in Dogstar under the bed when I was staying there.

What is this device called?

That's a log dolly, I bought one (assuming that's it) to use up on the lab but found it didn't work as I had planned to use it, so I just chained logs to the truck hitch to drag instead. Even on a dirt/gravel road, an inch or two of wood would be ground off hauling it back to peel, in just 1/4 or 1/2 mile. so where you can load logs on to it to absorb weight, and chain it on tight so it'll rotate during turns, it can be very handy.

Black Locust is the same as Robinia pseudo-acacia, isn't it? Because that's what I think this tree is.

Precisely that!

As far as the squash not doing well on the end of the hugel, as Ben was talking about that I noticed the sprinkler wasn't reaching that area so it could be a lack of regular water. Until a plant gets really good roots down into the mass they can need some babying if there isn't regular rain.

I don't recall if aerobic composting breaks down all or even some of the meds, but you could always have a "guest bucket" that gets composted separately and is only put on trees/plants you won't later eat.

Hmm, any chance the door was sticking due to the hinges pulling away from the frame/wall, or perhaps just swelling of the door due to spring humidity? If it's the latter, would a yearly coating of linseed oil or equivalent possibly help?

This site has a lot of plant based recipes, and that includes a number of dressings:

Here's a channel on YT I follow, which has some oil-free carrot-ginger and cilantro-lime dressings in this video:

I've been receiving email notifications for Stephen and Trace, so now it's working properly as far as I can tell!

Yup, I checked that each thread had a check mark on the watch settings. I did receive 2 notifications today for Chase and Stephen, Stephen's already was checked previously, but I wasn't getting notifications. I was wondering if anything had been done on the back end, that I now got a notification. I'll see if it continues to work on these two threads.
