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


Arch broke but I learned to connect to wifi from TTY.

While I reinstall I'm cooking a fig and apple crumble to use the excess harvest.

A good Sunday!

10 years of engineering successfully avoiding to learn to use a propietary CAD software and now I have to teach it 😀

I built paper umbrellas with recycled material to protect the little plants from the sun.

Hope it works!

We had one day over 30ºC and 5 above 25ºC during july and august but now that I started the fall vegetables we will have a minisummer with more than 35ºC

Food, story 

The figs in the previous post come from a descendent of a very big fig tree that was here before the house was built. I was a child at that time but I remember it.

It was cut down during the works but several sprouts appeared some time after and now there are three figs trees in the garden that provide food to the neighbourhood.

Courgette independence!

"Aprender a dividir entre los que somos ayuda a pensar en qué vida puede ser esa en la que quepamos todas y no dejamos a nadie atrás. Cuánto queda, si hay para todas y a cuánto tocamos, son preguntas políticas centrales."

Last summer I discovered a little apricot tree in the garden; today, I found a fig tree in the middle of the roses.

I should put all these spontaneous trees in a piece of land and make a forest.

Me: I have always sore arms, I wonder why since I haven't worked out recently.

Also me: *carries a 10 kg pot several times a day so baby brassicas don't suffer from the sun too much*


Current status: making watermelon sorbet.

The drawing course ended finally. I had a lot of fun and gained confidence about my work.

My fellows were very nice and we helped and encouraged each other all the time.

It was a fantastic experience in a beautiful place.

The drawing course is in an archaeological site 😍

Now that the summer garden is going nicely, I'm planning the fall and winter one.

I'm thinking of keep growing beetroot, since the results were fantastic in this climate, and add some greens and some more roots.

What do you grow during the coldest part of the year, dear fellows? I'm curious!

I wrote an article about the need for low-carbon and #sustainable #computing and the path towards zero-carbon computing.

In short, we need to dramatically limit the growth in emissions from computing, or by 2040 emissions from computing alone will be close to half the emissions level acceptable to keep global warming below 2°C.

And it is possible to do this.
