Growing ? It's time to check if you have any garlic scapes, because if you don't take them off, you'll end up with small bulbs in the ground.

Hi! I'm Alison, a PhD student in at University of . I'm finding a way to calculate ages of stars that are small, cool, and too old for us to currently measure — which will help teach us about the history of the Milky Way 🌌, the stars of "habitable" planets 🪐, and the physics of magnetic dynamos (ie the source of Earth's magnetic poles) 🧭.

I also love , , and working towards a safer, greener, and more just world 😊✊

Ask me space questions!


Today I managed to harvest the first of the Broad Beans. I didn't have quite enough fresh beans for the recipe, so I threw in some frozen ones with french beans and broccoli too.

I made a simple Broad Bean, Bacon and Potato dish, with scapes and mint from the garden too. It tasted delish. And we have enough for tomorrow night - yay!


Got some cilantro and basil started today, as the last thing I'll do before my surgery. I harvested a bunch of arugula that wanted to bolt; there is one flower each on the tomato and pepper; the calendulas are coming along; five of my walking onion bulbils did in fact sprout and are eagerly putting on inches.


I spot 1 cm worth of corn stalk!!
