Posted: 15 Days 23 Hours ago by: Gary WoodsI have a tuberous begonia overwintered in a hanging planter; grown from seed last spring. It shared the planter with a bunch of Impatiens. The single thick stem had foliage on the end, so I cut the stem below the foliage to root...I've ha

Posted: 18 Days 12 Hours ago by: Michael TrewMy grandparents always used potassium in their water softener, instead of salt.

Posted: 21 Days 22 Hours ago by: FrankI am fighting weeds an banks but do not want to kill the stuff that belongs there and have been trying Preen. I put it on before using premerg on the lawn as some weeds come in early.

Posted: 23 Days 17 Hours ago by: SnagI don't think so . If I run the pump at 7.5 GPM for an hour it doesn't matter if that 450 gallons goes directly to the plants or if it makes a trip through a holding tank . My first task in either case will be to regulate flow so I'

Posted: 23 Days 22 Hours ago by: SnagBits and pieces are heading my way . I've ordered everything but the hardware to hook my pump outlet pipe to a faucet for a garden hose . That will be purchased locally . I've decided to try throttled flow from the pump instead of u
Posted: 24 Days 3 Hours ago by: SnagIt's a 1 hp pump, I figure I can fill a 275 gallon tank in about 30 minutes at 10 gpm so at .11 per kw/hr that's about $.08 per day . The pump running unrestricted moves around 25-30 gpm but the well won't sustain that rate for more

Posted: 24 Days 11 Hours ago by: hubopsMaybe less electricity than you think ? ... not sure of my maths here .. : 10 minutes per day to fill the tank x 30 days = 300 min = 5 hours : 1/3 HP pump <?> 300 watts x 5 hours = 1500 watt hrs = 1.5
Posted: 24 Days 12 Hours ago by: SnagThere's no time like right now to make sure the garden does well this year ... So I've installed a submersible pump in our well (was here when we bought 20 years ago) and I'm in the process of designing a drip irrigation system . T

Posted: 24 Days 13 Hours ago by: Michael TrewYes, I have lots of whiskey weed (knotwood?) popping up again. I've been very hesitant to use Roundup, but I'm seriously consider it, because I'm absolutely sick of the stuff taking over my hillside every year, no matter how often I s
