Plant Pollination – Encouraging Other Pollinators In The Garden

Plant Pollination – Encouraging Other Pollinators In The Garden
Honeybee Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is a hot topic, along with all the other factors contributing to our decline of bee population, so serious focus on pollinators and their health has to be in the conversation. While I love bees (just not the mean ones like yellow jackets), there are other pollinators upon which we can focus. Creating habitat and food for these good guys will help sustain our crops and plants to ensure the future of our food supply. Encouraging “Other” Pollinators in the Garden I am mildly allergic to bee stings. Plus, I am like a four-year-old and terrified of being stung. This doesn’t prevent me from appreciating bees and all the work they do, but it does remind me that they aren’t the only pollinators in the garden. There are daytime and nighttime pollinating insects, most of which don’t bother a fly. They just move around … Read More

Furnishing Kitchens have conventionally been used to arrange household meals, store meals and organise utensils and crockery. Simply understood representations of the Moor” had been imprecise, different, inconsistent, and contradictory. The time period ‘Moor’ referred to darkish-skinned folks usually, used interchangeably with phrases similar to ‘African’, ‘Somali’, ‘Ethiopian’, ‘Negro’, ‘Arab’, ‘Berber’, and even ‘Indian’ to designate a figure from Africa (or past).” Varied uses of the phrase Black (for example, Haply for I’m Black”) are insufficient proof for any accurate racial classification, students argue, (an attempt at Whitewashing” Blackness?) since Black might simply imply swarthy to Elizabethans. Iago twice makes use of the word Barbary” or Barbarian” to consult with Othello, seemingly referring to the Barbary coast inhabited by Berbers. Roderigo calls Othello The Thicklips”, which seems to discuss with Sub-Saharan African physiognomy; all meant as insults. Rated 3 out of 5 by Rich4 of thirteen from It’s okay. Simply... Read More

Growing Herbs In Containers – Storing Harvested Herbs From The Garden

Growing Herbs In Containers – Storing Harvested Herbs From The Garden
I have tried over the years to grow vegetables, with some success and a lot of failures. What I love growing the most, however, is herbs. They’re easier to grow, require less maintenance, have fewer pests, and allow for an ongoing harvest. Here’s how I grow, harvest and store all my favorite herbs. Growing Herbs in Containers My herb garden is potted. For some herbs, like mint, this prevents them from growing out of control and taking over beds. For others, like lavender and rosemary, it allows me to move them into the sun as needed, a commodity limited in my yard. Aside from those Mediterranean herbs, many types will tolerate some shade, which makes growing them a little easier. I simply start with a good, rich potting soil and transplant small herb plants I get from the local nursery. Watering regularly is particularly important with … Read More

Harvesting Bell Peppers – Things To Do With That Bell Pepper Harvest

Harvesting Bell Peppers – Things To Do With That Bell Pepper Harvest
Picking sweet peppers from the garden is one of my favorite tasks. I always plant several varieties which produce an array of vibrantly colored bell peppers. Not only does my bell pepper harvest look stunning in a bowl on my kitchen counter, the various colors of mature peppers add eye appeal to my meals. Unfortunately, harvesting sweet peppers in a multitude of bright colors creates a huge problem for me. I always choose my favorite varieties like Big Bertha, Red Knight, Golden Summer and Orange Sun. Then I add a few packs of hybrid mix peppers to get those desirable purple and chocolate-brown colors. I want my bell pepper harvest to include every color available, so I keep buying those teeny-tiny seed packets. They take up so little room in my seed box. And peppers are the first veggie plants I start, so I hardly notice as the space … Read More

Memories Of Summer Wheat Harvest Days

Memories Of Summer Wheat Harvest Days
I don’t grow many vegetables. Instead, I rely on generous gardening friends and neighbors to gift me with some of their bounty, and they usually do. I’d rather grow flowers. When I think of harvest time, I think back on the harvests of my childhood – on my family’s wheat ranch in Eastern Oregon. Remembering the Wheat Harvest Summer was (and still is) my favorite time of year. We would watch the growing wheat ripen, gradually turning from emerald green to gold (“amber waves of grain” is an apt description). My Dad would pray for wheat in May and June, which could make the difference between a good harvest and a poor one. Wheat can’t be harvested until it has a low water content, which we would determine by taking a bucket of grain into town to be tested. Once the wheat was ready, usually in late July or early...

Gardening Learn to backyard like a pro with data and recommendation from the consultants. Design particulars, equivalent to built-in wine racks and sink cabinet storage, give flexibility and benefit from house. As a pleasurable and aim-oriented out of doors activity, gardening has another benefit over different forms of exercise: People are more prone to keep it up and do it often. Upkeep – This is the on-going, and typically most challenging a part of gardening! Weeding and watering, in addition to fighting off bugs and pests is usually a fixed battle, however can be vastly satisfying. There are also tasks to do in useless-heading flowers like roses, or in scaling down of plants. Give a constant and ample amount of water,” says Sullivan. ‘Constant’ means you are doing it frequently and ‘ample’ means enough, which varies from plant to plant. Ensure the water penetrates the soil as opposed to just... Read More

Growing Veggies On A Fence – Vertical Gardening Helps With Harvesting

Growing Veggies On A Fence – Vertical Gardening Helps With Harvesting
Every year we plan a vegetable garden but until fairly recently it was plotted out in a standard rectangular garden plot. Then two things happened… Making the “Move” to Vertical Gardening The first thing to happen was we moved. That’ll shake things up in the gardening department. We no longer had the type of space for a large garden plot as we had before and, yet we still wanted the pleasure of growing our own produce. Although we had less room for a veggie garden, what we did have was sun, and lots of it, and the second thing that happened – an extremely ugly chain-link fence that extended up 8 feet. Having had the pleasure of writing several articles on vertical gardening, I knew exactly what to do with that unsightly fence, at least in the interim. Growing Veggies on a Fence That was almost three years ago … Read More
