@atomickitties and I have been friends for over 11 years. We started making treks down south starting in 2011. In 2013 I moved to the A. Around 2 years ago she moved to Kentucky. Today mom and I had the extreme honor to visit her during the @leeinitiative residency at @curatetapasbar in Asheville. It’s incriedlbe to see how far she’s come in such a long short time. I can’t WAIT to see what she continues to do. . . . . #WCKY #LEEinitiative #foodporn #beautifulcuisines #Cheflife #chefsofinstagram #instafood #onthetable #tastingtable #epicurious #nytcooking #eater #f52 #theartofplating #bonappetitmag #jamesbeard #womenchefs #kyproud #eky #cky #eatlex #louisvilleeats #appalachianlovestory #ruralcooks #SFA #mountainvalleywater #tilitnyc #makersmark #bestfriends #bestfriendsarebest

I'm a little behind on posts... But it's been so full and busy! This is @cheffrqnk and @cire6682 and a cow. Can we just appreciate the way Eric is looking at this baby? These two are the Chefs de Cuisines for Curate and Nightbell, respectively. I got to hang out with Frank (no one calls him chef, it freaked me out) all day. He walked me through a typical morning. We took calls, answered emails, handled staff concerns, equipment needs, and went to management meetings. We got to touch base about a plan for the week and needs and concerns of the staff. We interviewed a stage, oriented a new cook, goofed around with co-workers for a minute. And I joined Eric for some basic butchery. I just cleaned scraps but it was so much fun to laugh and joke and work with them. Then I rejoined Frank and worked the cold side of dinner. It's a busy spot and Chef let me expo the majority of night (thank you, I know I just.... Took over. (I don't know any of the plates and it was too busy for it to make sense to join any other position there. I can't run tables without knowing the map, can't plate food... Might as well call tickets)) . Frank's team is about 45. 20ish of them chefs/cooks/kitchen folx. They put up 3 family meals a day for the FULL staff. No one goes hungry. Which makes sense. We work in a restaurant, and if you're still food insecure, we're doing something very wrong. Everyone works well together, his team is low drama and very happy. I'm tempted to stay forever, but I'm with Eric today and I am SO EXCITED. . Kitchens have a reputation for being dark, damp, mean, and miserable. Especially if you're good at what you do. That doesn't have to be true and the proof is in the pudding. Look at what @chefkatiebutton has done at @curatetapasbar and @thenightbell . This is @atomickitties reporting in from Asheville, NC. . #WCKY #LEEinitiative #foodporn #beautifulcuisines #Cheflife #chefsofinstagram #instafood #onthetable #tastingtable #epicurious #nytcooking #eater #f52 #theartofplating #bonappetitmag #jamesbeard #womenchefs #kyproud #eky #cky #eatlex #louisvilleeats #appalachianlovestory #ruralcooks #SFA #mountainvalleywater #tilitnyc #makersmark

About a foot away, on the same log, were these slime mold structures. It's possible they are the same kind as the others on the log, but without having the chance to go back and see how they turned out, it's impossible to say. The forest around the little stream where this little log and all its inhabitants live is threatened by logging proposed by the US Forest Service, that would remove most of the trees on very steep slopes. This little steam provides clean water for many species, including two that are endangered. Kentucky Heartwood has information on this project, and others that affect the Daniel Boone National forest, on our website. Over the next few days we will be posting images from areas threatened by intensive logging in the watershed of Laurel Fork in the South Redbird Project. The U.S. Forest Service proposal would harvest nearly all of the trees on 3,200 acres of the Daniel Boone NF on the steep slopes of the Redbird District. The proposal would eliminate some of the oldest forest in the area and risk serious impacts to the federally-threatened Kentucky arrow darter and endangered snuffbox mussel.

Such beautiful things happen on so- called "dead" logs. Here is the same log as the one posted the other day, but in another spot a few inches away, where the slime mold is growing on some algae and moss. Plus we have a very cute fly enjoying the perch provided by the slime mold fruiting body. As part of its life cycle, the slime mold plasmodium crawled up onto the moss and algae and broke into fragments. These developed into the fruiting bodies seen here (the little stalked balls). This slime mold is in the genus Physarum, possibly, P. psitticinum.

it’s the end of pride month which means it’s my last chance to be gay online! just kidding pride is every day that queer folx exist in the world. i didn’t go to a pride fest this year but i did go to the local hardware store this morning in my rainbow suspenders to get a drill bit —the local hardware store being a place that i have loved for its promise of having exactly what you need for what needs fixing since i was a child and my mama would take me to farmer’s hardware in downtown Boone. i think it’s my fear of losing spaces that feel so essential to my small town queer heart, like the local hardware store, that often keeps me from showing up as my whole self. i know that wearing rainbow suspenders to the hardware store ain’t throwing a pride parade in new market... but it is still something to exist as you are because queers need tools too and i am still counting on that promise they made to have exactly what i need to fix what needs fixing. #countryqueers #appalachianlovestory #pride

The fruiting body of a slime mold on a moss. This was observed on a wet log in Laurel fork of Bowen creek. As part of its life cycle, the slime mold plasmodium crawled up onto the moss and broke into fragments. These developed into the fruiting bodies seen here (the little stalked balls). This slime mold is in the genus Physarum, possibly, P. psitticinum. These slime mold fruiting bodies look a lot like the spore-containing capsules produced by some mosses. Thanks to the Slime Mold Identification & Appreciation Facebook group for your help in identifying this slime mold! Over the next few days we will be posting images from areas threatened by intensive logging in the watershed of Laurel Fork in the South Redbird Project. The U.S. Forest Service proposal would harvest nearly all of the trees on 3,200 acres of the Daniel Boone NF on the steep slopes of the Redbird District.

what they didn’t tell you is that in revolutionary times the mundane shit will still break your heart. yes we are in crisis. yes there are bigger forces at play calling us into action, yes we have a duty in this moment to break unjust laws because as Fannie Lou Hamer said “nobody’s free ‘til everybody’s free” ...AND i miss you AND i am disappointed in the way you and i shook out AND i haven’t wanted to dance to townes van zandt without you. the revolution is wild. the revolution is mundane. the revolution is happening.

While the Forest Service is busy planning large logging projects, our eastern hemlock trees, like these ones in the South Redbird Project area, are dying. Although the Forest Service is putting some resources toward saving hemlocks, these resources pale in comparison to those being put toward planning logging projects. Over the next few days we will be posting images from areas threatened by intensive logging in the watershed of Laurel Fork in the South Redbird Project. The U.S. Forest Service proposal would harvest nearly all of the trees on 3,200 acres of the Daniel Boone NF on the steep slopes of the Redbird District.

STAY Project is celebrating pride y’all! For many of us, showing up as our full selves in our communities is not always possible -but that don’t mean we ain’t here. When- as STAY alum Rachel Garringer said, “the places we love don’t always love us back” -leaving can be a necessary act of self-preservation just as staying can be an act of resistance. Being young and LGBTQIA+ in these mountains can be isolating and that we don’t always have access to Pride festivals or queer spaces. STAY has always been a space for young queer folx to connect and align in the struggle for queer liberation for all people. Additionally, the STAY Project believes that queerness in Appalachia is not a singular experience or aesthetic, rather that #Fabulachia is a multitude of experiences. So if you are willing and able to share we want to hear from y’all this pride month about what makes you #ProudtoSTAY?

Hey pals! We are nearly a month away from the @stayproject STAY Summer Institute and 10th anniversary celebration! STAY is a great group of young people from Central Appalachia who are working to make their home communities places where they can and want to stay or come back to. It has been a space where I have felt extremely validated and empowered and encouraged and heard. It's been a place where I can heal and laugh and be myself, and I've made so many great friends. And I want other folks to experience that as well! At STAY's summer gathering this year, there’s gonna be youth of color caucus space, queer caucus space, workshops led by fellow youths, a party, storytelling, art, and other fun stuff! If you are from Central Appalachia and between the ages of 14-30, please consider going and registering for this amazing event at the link in my bio! It's gonna be super fun and I wanna see lots of my frands there, so if you need help with things like childcare or transportation or costs, or just want more info, let me know! :-) #STAYProject #AppalachianLoveStory #WV #EKY #ETN #WNC #SWVA #Appalachia

For three days now I've been reading about indusia - the little things that look like flowers on the fertile frond of this Christmas fern. This delicate little shield is thought to protect the little sporangia balls. If you zoom in you can see the little spiral spores in the sporangia. I've never noticed indusia before, but now that I've noticed them, I will be looking for yet one more thing when I wander and look at plants. There is always more to see. (p.s. Thank you, Raymond Cranfill, for answering my questions so elegantly. I love how you described the indusium as "petunia like" in appearance. You are a fern poet). #polystichumacrostichoides #indusium #sporangia #fern #appalachianlovestory #leecounty #poetry #webs
