Now that I'm reading so many I realised that I never introduced myself here!

I'm a researcher in applied mechanics, blogger and home baker. I'm obsessed with sourdough bread and free software and paint and knit whenever I can.

My objective for 2018 is learning to play the mandolin :D

The squash is little by little conquering the whole garden, cherry tomatoes are developing fruit and the pomegranate tree is in full bloom.

That's why I post little and spend a lot of time outside wearing my brand new straw hat.

Hay 5 microruibarbos con hojitas.

La misión ahora es mantenerlos a salvo del caracol.

Puse a germinar unas pocas semillas de ruibarbo en un papel y hoy las he trasladado a un tiesto porque ya tenían un pequeño brote.

Seguiremos informando.

Academia (-) 

One day I should tell you about my experiences in (Southern) Basque Academia but I'm afraid it'll be a very long post.

As a summary, extreme job insecurity is pretty exact.

En septiembre Ondiz cambia (involuntariamente) el escribir peipers por el cultivo del ruibarbo.

I mcgyvered a device out of a repurposed plastic container, a bean bag and a stick to protect the melon from slimmy friends and it succeeded!

I finally trasplanted all the tomato plants. I have about 30: some Rio Grande and some cherry from seed that I saved from last year harvest, and a couple blue ones from seeds of a commercial tomato, just for experimenting.

I'm looking forward to eating fresh tomatoes and testing if they're similar to their parent plant.

I thought to grow some legumes to add nitrogen to the raised bed and they're providing me with food as well.

Before writing papers, one should correct everything in due time and ...

for the first time in 5 years I've done it *hours* in advance!

I feel very accomplished. YAY for myself.

Classes of the semester finished! I love teaching but (or maybe because of it!) I'm exhausted.

Now it's time to write some papers.

The sweet potato has sprouted! After *only* 3 months and a half!

Yesterday I transplanted some of the summer vegetables.

I've been working in two new vegetable beds, so now I have plenty of space for tomatoes, herbs and cucurbits.

The next step is adding more flowers.

I was recommended the book "The Slow Professor: Challenging the Culture of Speed in the Academy" and I'm reading it during my commute.

It depics quite well the climate at work. I hope it can give as well some insight about how to change it.

Me, commuting: *carries a 500 page political essay to read during the commute*

Also me, commuting: now that I have time and an Internet connection I'll investigate how to grow broccoli.

¡El vecino ha venido a regalarme las minimacetas que dan en el Lidl!

First peas of the season harvested!

(And first peas of my vegetable adventures, as well)

I just bought two more strawberry plants because if there are plants in shops I have to buy them.

Let's go and teach 3D kinematics with its rotational matrix and stuff!
