I'm 'under investigation' because people in IT not only didn't remove my access to two other departments, they retained everything on my new ID. And for no fault of my own, I'm somehow a suspect because whoopin' 0.8 g of ephedrine went missing from a lab I didn't visit in sixteen months, from a safe box I never had access to. Not only the situation is stupid, the fact I'm anxious about the outcome is stupid.

And, gosh, presuming perfect conversion, you could make almost a full gram of free base amphetamine racemate. :V

Anyhow, just finished doing the literal groundwork for the vegetable garden, now I'll need to waterproof what's left of the dismantled gazebo to make a dog-proof fence around it. Potatoes will have to fend for themselves, though. Planted beans in pots and set them all around the house and balconies, will plant chickpea sprouts along the house fence this or next weekend. Depends on weather.

Still on the fence about hydroponic setup. I've done it a couple of times before, and it's about the same workload on 3 m2 as 20 m2, but fuckups get more severe as you scale up. If I went all-out, I may buy a fishtank and use it for nitrogen n'shit, but it'd be another complication.

Doomer prepperism? Hardly. I wanted to do that stuff for a long time, and I have a larger project in plans, where I'd like to replace most stuff that grows in the yard with edible greens. But before that, I need both practice and, really, a lot more patience than I currently have.
