Great post, as always!

For those in no-frost zones yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius) is a great perennial root veggie. In my zone 6 I have to overwinter it in a cellar, but still worth it.

Ramsons (Allium ursinum) bulbs are great as well, initially I was collecting only leaves but they become abundant enough to use their bulbs as well.

These spoons made me speechless ...

A passive solar thermal battery under the house, along with conservatory attached to the south side of the house is my biggest wish.

As pure fantasy, I would love to have a house by the lake, with fishing boat parked in the garrage that is a part of the house :D
Some sites do not accept excessively edited pictures, so it all depends where you post them.

I grow microgreens for couple of seasons already. I was growing in large trays, but recently I grow them in small ones, just for my family use. I prefer to have several small trays with different plant in each rather than a large tray of one variety.
Recently friends have asked me to make a video on this topic, so I made one, text is in Polish but I hope it is quite self-explanatory.

Good luck and please let us know how it goes!

If I could make 10$ a day it would be enough to make a living here, Gert style ;)

I have my pics sorted, filed, divided by places, topics and years they have been taken. Underwater photos separately, garden separately, etc. The only thing unsorted is related to camera evolution - the older the picture the smaller size obviously. I doubt a bulk upload makes sense, as your chance to sell any is as good as keywords you add to each picture. And that might be time consuming.

On the other hand, while posting here I could upload a pic or two, and then, who knows ....

Well, that's exactly what I'm looking for - not one pay-out but rather a steady trickling small income. But I kinda doubt it. My friend who is talented photographer with a record of some award winning pictures is not making any substantial money from stock photos, so how an averege Joe the Amateur Photographer can make it? I might be entirely wrong here I don't know ...
I have dozens of thousands of pics but I have never tried to sell any. With billions of photos on the Internet it was always quite questionable to me that my photo will be found, chosen, and purchased. Unless you are extremaly lucky and your photo will be chosen by a huge corporation, I'm quite skeptic that it is worth time spent. On the other hand, I will never know until I try it.... I would gladly learn from someone who actually has done that, how many photos were uploaded, and what passive income they generate per year.
There is no spoon ... so let's make one ;)
