The Week in Botany
The translation management system now works at Botany One. If you want to see it in its early stages, you can see Spanish at I need to start replacing the automated translations with human translations where we have them. Other languages will follow in the coming months once I’m satisfied Spanish is working properly.
This week’s plans include plenty of liquids, as the weather is likely to set records for heat where I live. I don’t do well with heat so life could be interesting. However, I’m hoping the news will be more interesting so, all being well, there should be another newsletter with you at the same time next week. Until then, take care
