MMDVM Hotspot

MMDVM Hotspot

In an effort to play more ham radio without the cost of an HF radio I decided to dabble with DMR a bit. I have an AnyTone AT-D878UVII Plus that I got from Bridgecom Systems that is capable but I’ve only just used it for UHF and VHF. We have a local DMR repeater that I can hit just fine from home, however it times out after 10 mins, so you can’t really just sit all day and monitor a…

Baby Bonsai’s

Baby Bonsai’s

Munchkin and I have quite a few baby bonsai now. So far we’ve sprouted and moved them outside into smaller pots (easy to relocate this winter). We have grown the following: Japanese Black Pine, Buddha Tree, Giant Sequoia, Coton Easter, Trident Maple, Chinese Elm, Colorado Blue Spruce and Black Spruce.

We have sprouts!

We have sprouts!

We have grown our first sprouts! The first to come up were our Colorado Blue Spruce. We also appear to have a Japanese Black Pine sprouting! Grace is still showing interest in things.

More seeds!

More seeds!

Grace and I planted some of what we had already, although I think we should have planted much more based on what I’m reading about the rates others have had on successful sprouting. We also got a nice selection of new seeds we will look into planting. Currently I’ve got the temperatures in the sprouter where they need to be but I’m worried about the humidity in one of them being way too high. Time will tell!

Planting our first seeds!

Planting our first seeds!

We attempted our first seed planting fully accepting we don’t have a clue what we are doing and just gonna see if anything even sprouts. Made up some labels for them. It’s rather pleasant experience, it causes a perspective shift for me. Slows me down. We have a lot to learn and we know already we are doing some things wrong, I’ve decided to go with the wrong ways so that I can learn from it. We are in no…

Documenting our Bonsai Adventure

Documenting our Bonsai Adventure

I’ve decided to repurpose the blog as a way to document our adventure into all things Bonsai. For me this started simply because I’ve had an interest in owning and caring for one since I was a kid. Probably lots to do with Mr. Miyagi to be honest. Grace (my youngest) and I are excited about learning all aspects of Bonsai, starting with owning our first Chinese Elm who we have named “Li Na” and is estimated to be approximately…
