    Gardening - growing chiles, squash, cucumber, tomatoes, eggplant, blackberries, blueberries (not many this year), persimmons, figs, nectarines, Korean pears, and plums.

    Related to gardening, I recently purchased some stuff to put together a new raised bed, and I think I want to get into woodworking.

    D&D - I’ve been running a D&D game for the last 5 years or so that just concluded a major arc.

    Lifting weights - I recently purchased a Titan power rack, so that’s been great for squats, overhead press, and pullups. I’m trying to get back into Olympic style weightlifting, but it’s been slow going.

    Travel - we just got back from Santa Fe, NM. It’s beautiful there, and the food is fantastic.

      Also a gardener. Currently waiting for my tomatoes to start producing, we have too much rain and too little sun at the moment. Zucchini and cukes have started producing which is nice.

      In terms of fruit trees, my cherry is packed this year. I can take the kids there every day for a feast 😊

      My citrus collection is also doing rather well.

        I always wanted a cherry tree! I bet that’s really cool for the kiddos. What citrus do you have? My meyer lemon has a few fruits on it.

          I got a Meyer lemon, a classic lemon, a satsuma and a lime tree :) all in pots because our winters are too cold for most citrus trees.

          The cherry tree is amazing. My strawberries are mostly done for the season, but the cherries started ripening at the perfect time. My kids love going to the garden with me, they know they will be getting tasty treats there.

          We’re moving soon and I need to come up with a way to replace the fruit trees from the garden so I’m looking at trees in pots which appears to be possible but has some flaws.

          Is there anything you got your eye on?

            My wife currently won’t let me buy any more trees 😂 (she’s right, we have too many). I also keep my citrus in containers. I’ve got the meyer lemon, a makrut lime, and a calamondin orange. The orange tree hasn’t fruited yet, but I’m hopeful!

            Would love a cherry tree if we had room for one. I’ve started grafting different stone fruit varieties onto my plum, though, so maybe I could do that.

    I’m running multiple d&d games for both friends and family. My friends are currently playing The Curse of Strahd and loving it but it’s just by the book.

    My family just finished The Wild Beyond the Witchlight, which I had heavily modified and plan to release a boom detailing what I did and how it went. After that this group returns to my homebrew game, so…

    I need to revive a third game, also with friends, which is their heroes in the same homebrew world as I plan to bring the two groups together for a level 20 finale.

        They are, vaguely. The situation is that two worlds from parallel timelines almost collided and we’re sealed into a bubble plane to keep the catastrophe contained.

        One party from each world is unraveling the how and why. At the center is a pair of liches - the same individual from each world - whose phylacteries are each other. If you dint defeat them both in the alloted time, the other lich rises again.

        None of the players know about the liches yet, but they do know their name, Zeitounessian.

            He’s a real Narcissus. Fell in love with himself in a different world and almost destroyed two worlds so that they could be together forever.

            My players know there are two worlds and that Zeitounessian did it for love. I’m amazed they haven’t guessed the truth yet.

    Wow, you people actually have interesting hobbies. The most interesting thing I did last week, was repair a shitty Huawei p10 (which I hate, because you can’t unlock the bootloader). I’ll give it to my mom for her birthday. I know, it’s a shitty gift, but could be worse.

    Crafting, since I’m traveling again

    Huarachas - traveling again, and huarachas are my most comfortable shoes

    Stuff sacks - for cramming bulky items like jackets/sleeping bags into to maximize storage space.

    I really like making stuff, and these items are so useful and so simple to make that I make them whenever I need them

    Oh shirts. Usually the best design only comes in extra large, so I buy the style I like in any size larger than I am, then lay a shirt I know is the right size on top, cut it to size and make a bespoke t-shirt.

    Soldering some new cables for my sound system, got a big party coming up and trying to make it easier to use. Haven’t done it in a while and enjoying it!

    Practicing soldering on cheap Chinese kits. Put together a good sized LED music visualizer kit Saturday. Works good!

    Finished up my last hand wired keyboard the other day, and also the RPi powered Pokédex my daughter had wanted me to finish for her for quite a while.

    It’s a crude little thing, especially the 3D printing — it was this project that convinced me I had to move on from TinkerCAD — but the software (not mine) works perfectly, the battery is big enough to power the Pi and she’s fond of it.

    A part on my mountain bike (freehub) broke and I was going to replace it but I couldn’t get the old one out without damaging the wheel so instead I moved all the new parts from the replacement into the body of the old one which itself was in good-enough condition. Now it works again and I didn’t need to spend and extra money.
