I was a homebrewer for years but that became difficult with 2 little ones. Now we have a couple raised beds and grow all kinds of food year round. Heres one of the watermelons from this summer.

Been getting into wood working over the past year or so. Refinished a few dressers, built a couple things, and tinkered with shou sugi ban techniques. Finally upgraded some tools very recently so I'm hoping to get into some cooler builds but here's a picture of my favorite piece so far.

That's awesome. Tried growing a few a things this year. First had to reseed 3 times because kids kept killing my seedlings. Finally, was able to transplant to outside garden in May.
Here's the results:
Cucumber - 4 plants survived. Zero fruit.
Tomato - 6 plants. 3 fruits.
Parsley, basil and cilantro did great.
Watermelon - huge vines. Tons of flowers. No fruit.
Squash - nothing

Note we have a shortage of bees, so have to manually pollinate with a brush, but to get no fruit after all that effort just really sucks.

Any tips?

Best way to get them to produce is to manually pollinate with a small paint brush or Q-Tip. We have the kids do it they love it😂 And if you have room for a compost I highly recommend its literally black gold for plants. And plant a bunch of different stuff, some years certain plants do better than others. There are also flowers that can be planted in/around vegetables that can be beneficial like marigolds and nasturtiums.

My main hobby is drowning myself in car research of any kind. I'm a big Formula 1 fan as well, too competitive with karts, and will probably buy an NB Miata to K swap when I have a garage of my own.

My only other main hobby is photography. Half of these were taken with my DSLR, and half with my phone. "The best camera is the one you've got with you", so I make sure to have a phone with a high-end camera and great imaging software (Google Pixel is killing it right now).

As for other things, I hike, love to camp, I game a bit, I enjoy building PCs, I have recently gotten into semi-high-end audio equipment, I enjoy movies and anime. Anime/manga is probably the third subject I know most about, behind cars and photography.

Thank you!
I only do RAW with my DSLR. My phone can do RAW as well, but most of a phone's photography strength comes from the software/post-processing that happens immediately after a shot, imo.

I have great luck with cherry tomato plants just rubbing the flowers together gently. Ends up growing tomatoes like a grape vine. For the plants with fewer flowers spread farther apart I agree with using a Q-tip or a cotton ball.

I can't believe that I will enjoy helping my friend modify his 2017 Ram 3500. I am currently searching for a set of dually wheels which he wants to install on his rig. He will use it to tow his RV since he loves going on an adventure with his family. I will try to take some photos of this project and share it with you guys.

Getting old. Used to go beach all the time and 10 years ago tried to do a flip over a wave and almost snapped my neck. My bmx and drift trike just sits under tarps now. No more roller rinks here anymore since the mid 80's.
