Planting Trees with Good Habits and Bad Code

My brain, as anyone who knows me well can attest, is prone to inspiration and, consequently, distraction. This means that, in order to get things done, I rely on external aides to assist me in breaking tasks down, following through on each step, and delivering the final thing. This is not unusual among STEAMy folks, therefore systems like Kanban boards have become popular in the tech industry (and would probably be helpful if adopted by other STEM).

Help Irish Endangered Wildflowers the Lazy Way

I have undertaken a project to reintroduce several endangered Irish wildflowers to my garden and some local suitable habitats, and I learned that it was easier and cheaper than I had at first imagined. The hardest part was finding suppliers. So in the spirit of inviting other willing volunteers on board, I've included a handy list of supplier links for the wildflowers I've started with. There is a clear bias toward flowering species because they are more likely to have a commercial purpose: I would like to get seeds for more of the flowerless plants if I found a good supplier.
