Maybe it's just me, @kewgardens, but I would have expected an article about interesting lettuces with lots of photos to at least tell me the names of the varieties pictured. https://www.kew.org/read-and-watch/lettuce-season-kew-kitchen-garden

Henrik Carlsson took the trouble to record a microcast in reply to my Eating Alone episode and raised a completely new reason for wanting to eat alone: because cooking for and eating with picky children can be a bit of a trial. Good luck with future meals.

Just published the latest Eat This Newsletter at https://www.eatthispodcast.com/eat-this-newsletter-104/ and need to test this new Twitter plugin too.

So here goes.

Just upgraded my WithKnown site to the latest master. Slightly hair raising, but excellent help from @mapkyca got me over the hurdles. Only downside, currently, seems to be the plugin that syndicates to Twitter.

I’m being hit by a wave of spam to sign-up forms, rather than comments, and I cannot fathom what’s in it for the spammers. No clue.

I like the idea of a "tryout" tag for new websites that seem interesting enough to subscribe to, so I am promptly starting to do just that.

It worked! Well done. Are you also in the IndieWeb IRC/Slack?

Thanks for the link; will read. @NPRDanCharles had a good piece about the paper too.

The farmers who benefit from Fair Trade don't pass the benefits on to their workers. New paper https://www.nature.com/articles/s41893-019-0311-5 @LB_Naylor first alerted me to this in my episode on Fair Trade https://www.eatthispodcast.com/pushing-good-coffee/

Frustrated attempt to create my first EC2 instance AND connect to it. Launching it with defaults went fine, but connecting kept timing out, and after going through all the troubleshooting it is still timing out. Stopped, for now.
