How To Optimize Your Garden for Drought or Water Conservation

Being a gardener and based in Colorado, it has been stressful for me because this state has been experiencing a severe drought for years. Because of water scarce, the local government imposed prohibition to limit water consumption for plants and lawn. However, because I am implementing some effective strategies, My house is the only one that is in green in our neighborhood. So, for those who have lived in areas similar to us, do not be worry because it is just a matter of finding effective strategy to grow plants having poor water supply as its constraint.


Below are some techniques that I have implemented with my garden. You can apply these, too.


First, if the soil you have does not retain water very well, you can make a water conservation by adding with lots of compost. That process does not only prevent water from escaping but can make your plants to grow healthy and to survive.


Not all plants really require that much of water so one best effective way to save water is to segregate them according to their water needs. So place in one area the ones that do not need much water and in the other area, those that need more water. By segregating them, you can focus watering to plants that need it.


Drip irrigation system installation is also important to put in your garden because this allows every single drop to be absorbed by plans, no single drop is wasted. More often,roots are overwhelmed with the mere amount of water in the soil and drip irrigation system manages that.


And if you still need to have more water for your garden and you do not have enough, you may consider of replacing some plants with the ones that need less water. If you need shrub that need less water, you may plant heavenly bamboo. It’s not only tolerant in drought but also, a offer unique decorative design for your garden. For herbs, you may use rosemary, this is rarely thirsty.


For flowering plants that do not require that much of water, find for varieties for penstemon like Apple Blossom, Midnight, Garnet, and Moon bean. You can, in fact, attract hummingbirds and butterflies. And the best feature about this plant is that they do not look rugged.


Lavender is also one of the best drought resistant plant and the group of these really make your garden standout of others. Another is the use of pineapple sage and it is a major attractor for humming birds.


So, if you are dealing with garden positioned in dry area, you can still make it productive, bloom, if only you implement effective strategy on how to do it.

Do You Think You Are Overly Fatigued? Check Out Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Explained For Everyone

Chronic fatigue syndrome, or CFS, is a debilitating and complex disorder characterized by profound fatigue that is not improved by bed rest and that may be yet even worsened by physical or mental activity. People with CFS most often function at a substantially lower level of activity than they were capable of before the onset of the illness.

In addition to these key defining characteristics, those who have CFS also report various nonspecific symptoms, including weakness, muscle pain, impaired memory and/or mental concentration, insomnia, and post-exertional fatigue which can last for more than 24 hours. In some cases, CFS can persist for years. Read more…

GOP Led House Passes Cut Version Of Obama’s Energy Bill By $6 Billion

GOP Led House Passes Cut Version Of Obama's Energy Bill By $6 Billion

On Friday, the Republican led House passed a 30.6 billion dollar energy bill covering the Energy Department and the Army Corps of Engineers programs. The final cost was $1 billion less than this years budget, and $6 billion less the President Barack Obama’s request for the energy and water projects. The Republican leaders called it a model of restraint, but White House officials claimed that it jeopardized economic growth and clean energy projects.

The bill included an amendment that allows companies to continue to make and sell old-school 100 watt light bulbs after January 1, 2012, when they were originally scheduled to be phased out. Previously, Republicans have tried to overturn a 2007 law requiring light bulbs to be more energy efficient starting in 2012, but all previous attempts have failed. The new House bill also blocks the Obama Administration from closing the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste project in Nevada. The government has already spent $15 billion on the project, but it still not open for business, which is storing spent nuclear fuel from power plants. President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada both want to end the program. Read more…

Dolphin Killing in Denmark Faroe Islands

Dolphin killing in Denmark is a ritual requirement for teen passage to manhood, at least in the Faroe Islands. The whole town comes down to the shores, including children whom are kept out of school for the event so they can watch the ritual slaughter of the Calderon Dolphins. They all gather at the bloody shores and watch the bloodbath and listen to the cries of wounded and suffering dolphins like it was a festival of which the local residents proudly claim as their heritage and culture.

ritual on shores

Ritual oh shore

Before you go starting a vigil against Denmark, let me set the record straight first of all. The Faroe Islands is an island group and are located between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean. The islands are a self-governing territory within the Kingdom of Denmark, along with Denmark proper and Greenland since 1948 and are not a part of the European Union nor are its citizens members of the EU even if they are Danish citizens living in the Faroe Islands. They are not regulated by the International Whaling Commission for that matter either. Read more…

Bears Packers Time Football Games Today

Are you ready for some football? Watch the Football Games Today!

The Bears Packers time is officially set for 3 PM EST and the Jets Steelers game time is 6:30 PM EST. Both games are big and competition will be high this year as all the teams match up fairly well, so it is a toss up as to whom will win. The over/under for the NFC game are 3 to 3.5 and the AFC game is 3 to 4 for the spreads.

The Bears Packers rivarly is the oldest in the league, and this will be the 182nd game between the two teams. The rivarly is always intense, and this being the NFC Championship game, it will make the intensity even more extreme. The matchup promises to bode well for the defenses, as the temperature will be at 21 degrees and the turf questionable, as Chicago decided against replacing the mid field turf that was a little scruffy according to some sources. The Packers won the last outing 10 – 3 on January 2nd at Lambeau field, with similar weather conditions to today. The PAckers are favored by 3 1/2 points going into the classic battle of the black and blue division, to which it has been referred to in the past, but not so much anymore. Read more…

Safe Home Pest Control

Safe pest control, prevention is far easier than termination and safer!

Safe home pest control, and preventing an insect infestation is far easier than eradicating one. Here are some ideas on how to keep insect pests from invading your home.

1. Stagnant water is a haven for mosquitoes. Adults lay their eggs on the water’s surface, and the larvae hatch out and live in the water. Then they mature and fly out of their watery home and bite warm-blooded creatures of all sorts, especially humans! And mosquitoes can carry deadly diseases, too, such as West Nile virus and encephalitis.

It takes only a teaspoon or so of stagnant water to harbor dozens of mosquito larvae. So, check thoroughly for pools of water of all sizes around your home. Spread out and dry plastic tarps (their wrinkles and ridges hold pools of water), dump water out of potted plants and their trays, empty your watering can after each use and store it and other empty containers out of the rain.
