I love reading and crafting (you name it, I've probably done a project on it). What do you like to do to relax and unwind?

@mellowbeing @thesethkerr what kind of plants are you growing? Are they indoor? :)
Share
CTO @ Oak Development Technologies
@mellowbeing @sarahloertscher they are seasonally outdoor/indoor plants. I grow coffee, bananas, avocados, blood oranges, peaches, nectarines, grapes, and some flowers too 😄

@thesethkerr So cool! I'm in upstate NY where we have hot summers but really cold, low light winters - I haven't figured out what fruit trees to try that might be okay with both. 🍋

CTO @ Oak Development Technologies
@sarahloertscher fruit trees are a challenge but there are some that are more resilient than others. Potted fruit trees is also a huge hurdle especially during winter. I suggest looking for dwarf or columnar trees. Gurneys.com has some. You can email me (thesethkerr at gmail) if you have other Qs 👍🏻

@mellowbeing @sarahloertscher With dance, I've done most genres but these days I'm doing a lot of hip hop and musical theater jazz! Crafting - I love knitting and hand lettering and have been wanting to try a pottery class.

@thatbberg @sarahloertscher I second Sarah's question! :)
@mellowbeing @thatbberg Cool! I love ceramics. Never done any hand lettering but I feel like I would love it

@mellowbeing @anna_panchenko Playing piano sounds great. What kind of piano / keyboard do you have?
Share
@mellowbeing @anna_panchenko Hey kudos on both of those :) What kind of music do you play?
@mellowbeing @0xmtn classic and I love to play different soundtracks. Amazing thigh from matrix, interstellar, 28 weeks late. Do you play any musical instrument?
@mellowbeing @abadesi old acoustic piano, I tried a lot of electrics if the sound is great the price will be too great as well :-)
@mellowbeing @anna_panchenko Cool :) I play guitar a little. I'm more into music production though.

@mellowbeing mechanical watches!
Share
@mellowbeing @marcaime sounds cool - what do you do with them? are you learning how they work? watchmaking is a super cool trade
Founder, Toolwatch.io
@mellowbeing @sarahloertscher I collect them, learn about them, discuss them with friends and even build products around watches (Toolwatch on ProductHunt!)
@marcaime rad! mechanical watches are fascinating. I'm a jeweler by trade and watchmaking is a closely-linked branch off of that tradition. I've never done anything with watches besides change a battery but just watching them work is mesmerizing.

@sarahloertscher I can easily relate :)

@mellowbeing I’m actually re-reading ‘Hooked’. Are you reading anything?
Share
@khayamonline I keep meaning to read that one! I guess it's good enough to reread? I'm currently reading "Less" which is ok and up next is a Rainbow Rowell book. I've been doing some light summer reading after "Lies My Teacher Told Me" and "Becoming" prior to these. haha

@mellowbeing Love this question! This year I've really gotten into Yin Yoga, its a very slow, deep restorative practice that leaves me feeling so zen. I also like painting and exploring the outdoors.
Share
@mellowbeing @abadesi I really have liked Yin when I've done it - just taken a few classes. What kind of painting?
Founder & CEO, Hustle Crew
@mellowbeing @sarahloertscher usually watercolors but also acrylic and I recently picked up some oils I can't wait to play with.
@abadesi very cool! I love watercolors. Have you ever sprinkled salt on drying watercolors? It may be a super basic trick everyone knows, but the drying salt leaves crystalline patterns in the paint, and depending on the dryness when you add the salt it can leave really billowy crystal patterns (more wet) or really pinpointed crystal patterns (more dry). ✨

@sarahloertscher yes i love playing around with different materials! I'll try this next time 😊
@sarahloertscher @abadesi thanks so much! I thought it'd be a fun question to get to know people a bit better. :) I just learned you can create sugar water (boiling sugar in water) and that also affects your watercolors.
