I did a little urban #foraging here in #berlin this morning. Unlike the crackpot protesters a few blocks away, these nuts are very useful. The smaller nuts are from a pair of beautiful copper beach¹ trees. The almost scary looking fuzz monsters are from turkish hazel trees² – a really pretty variety that does well with the pollution, drought and alkaline soils that make urban tree life hard. I'm now pulling off the outer husks to let the nuts dry out for a few weeks.
A fediverse community for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
