Gardening

Factors to Consider:
.Food and money requirements
The income you receive will depend on what you choose to grow, on how well you follow through in the growing process, and on how well you handle the financial and marketing aspects of the job.

Consider carefully a) your family size, b) the standard of living expected, and c) the debt load you expect the garden to carry. A home mortgage plus car and credit card payments of $3,000 per month requires a much greater effort to cover than if you’re debt-free.
.Location
Warm climates may require lots of water and even a little shade at the hottest times, while cold climates often require more greenhouse seedling production and the covering of garden crops in spring and fall to extend the growing season.

You will improve your garden’s production in any location or climate using the Mittleider method.
.Commitment
You must understand the commitment involved with market gardening, and be willing to do it right. Our grandparents grew gardens, and often owned animals. They had to work every day to feed, water, and care for their animals and plants.

There is very little time available for vacations, etc. during the growing season. A successful market garden requires your attention on a daily basis!
.Technology

A hundred years ago, most growers used manure, and it was a fairly level playing field between the family gardener and the market farmer. Not so today! Your competition includes hydroponic growers with over $1,000,000 per acre in buildings and equipment, and paid employees doing the work. And by feeding and watering their plants many times a day they’re growing 330 tons of tomatoes per acre each year!

Tips for Getting Started

1.Start small! Don’t plant more than you can care for properly, and sell or use.
2.Determine the market or markets you will sell to: a) Wholesalers, b) small grocery stores, c) restaurants, d) farmers’ market, e) roadside stand, or f) home delivery.
3.Learn what vegetables you should grow by determining those that: a) you can grow readily, b) sell well, and c) at a good price.
4.Build proper facilities including a) a seedling greenhouse with tables, b) T-Frames for growing vertically, and c) a good watering system. These all are essential for success at this level.
5.Set up a formal accounting system, including account names and numbers for every category of asset, liability, equity, income, and expense. Get help from your CPA or other competent accountant.
6.Stock up on tools, seeds, fertilizers, and provide for pest and disease control.
7.And be sure to include all those costs, as well as your labor, in figuring your market prices and your expected net return.

You may have to beat the competition to sell your produce at the beginning. However, by growing more, bigger, fresher, tastier, and healthier produce than others, you will develop a loyal customer base, and then you can adjust your prices as needed.
Choosing What to Grow

In choosing what to grow, consider a) the ease of growing, b) the cost and risk of loss, and c) the value of the crop. Let’s look at some scenarios of what could be grown and sold from one acre of ground with good care and decent weather, with minimal losses from bugs and diseases that are achievable by strictly following the Mittleider Method:

Estimated Yields and Income at wholesale of a single crop from a One Acre Mittleider Market Garden of 250 30-foot-long by 18 inch-wide soil beds

Pole Beans:
150 plants/bed, 1.5#/plant, $.60/# = $33,750

Cabbage:
61 plants/bed, 2#/plant, 2 crops, $.20/# = $12,200

Corn:
92 plants/bed, 1.5 ear/plant, $.20/ear = $6,900

Cucumbers:
46 plants/bed, 8 lb/plant, $.35/lb = $32,200

Potatoes:
92 plants/bed, 2.5 lb /plant, $.20/lb = $11,500

Tomatoes:
41 plants/bed, 10 lb/plant, $.50/lb = $51,250

The above examples are estimates only, and actual results have been much higher or lower, depending on many factors including experience, weather, direct retail marketing vs. wholesale sales, etc.

If you are growing for the retail market using a roadside stand or farmers’ market booth, you will probably want a fairly wide variety of produce in order to attract customers.

While corn has a low yield for the space required, it is very popular with customers when it’s fresh, so you may decide to treat it as a Loss Leader and have it available.

A Word of Caution
Don’t try to plant too many vegetable varieties. Ten or twelve are far easier to handle than twenty to thirty. And three varieties of tomatoes are usually enough. I like Big Beef, Italia Mia, and Grape tomatoes. One planting of Blue Lake pole beans will allow you to sell beans all season long, but bush beans will give you an earlier single crop.

If you sell to restaurants, you’ll need to grow the specific things they use, such as specialty lettuces, tomatoes, Ichiban eggplant, small red potatoes, etc. And you may need to plant a few beds of single-crop varieties every week, to have them maturing throughout the season.

If your primary market is large grocery stores or wholesale suppliers, they will usually want a large steady supply of a few things, so you may be able to plant everything to the money crops of beans, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, and tomatoes, or multiple plantings of lettuces and other quick-growing crops.

Remember: You have a big advantage over others!
By following the Mittleider Method accurately and consistently you can produce much more in less space than other small market growers are doing, and be successful!

The books, CD’s and videos available from the Food for Everyone Foundation will teach you the gardening principles, procedures, and techniques you need to grow your own successful market garden. In studying these things, remember that this unique gardening method has been proven highly effective in thousands of situations, in dozens of countries all around the world. It’s a recipe! It WILL work to give you a great garden in any soil and in virtually any climate but you MUST follow the recipe.

Happy Gardening!

Home Improvement

If you go by the home improvement store and take a look at the selection of home and commercial LED lights you might be a bit confused. The truth is that the two lighting systems really dont look all that different if you have such a limited selection from which to choose. To really get a comprehensive view of what is available and why you should invest in such lighting, you need to go online.

Bulbs for the Home

The real goal of bulbs that are designed for home use is that they be entirely interchangeable with bulbs currently in use incandescent bulbs and compact fluorescent bulbs. The selection is still small, but you can get A style bulbs, flood lights and C style bulbs. A bulbs are those that fit in your regular fixture and C7 bulbs go in chandeliers.

If you have a chandelier that uses standard screw bases there are adapters you can use which allow C7 bulbs to fit your fixture. One thing you wont find in your average home supply store yet is a tube light. Those are available online but are very pricey at this point, and since those fixtures use fluorescent bulbs already, the savings wont be as dramatic.

In the Commercial Setting

Commercial settings can be defined in a variety of ways. Some consider this application to relate specifically to office function, while others would include city wide lighting. Bulbs for these applications are available predominantly online through manufacturers. Lets look at both.

In the office, restaurant or store-based setting, fluorescent lights have been in use for quite some time. 2 x 2 foot panel lighting, traditional ballast lights and flood light cans are all replaceable with LED lamps at this time, but the initial investment is significant. Of course, the savings are just as significant, and in general, fixtures wont need to be changed. The exception is that if you have a ballast dependent fluorescent fixture, the ballast will probably have to be removed for the LED to work properly.

City lighting, such as that found in traffic lights and street lights offer some unique challenges. As part of the current stimulus package cities are switching over to LED lamps for the energy savings. What they have found, especially in cold climates, is that LED bulbs dont generate enough heat in traffic lights to melt off snow and ice, something the old incandescent bulbs would do. This means that during cold weather traffic lights get obscured. LED manufacturers are looking at ways to solve the problem.

On the other hand, cities that have invested in LED lighting for crosswalk signs, street lighting and architectural lighting report significant reductions in their energy bills. Some cities are saving 50-90% over their previous costs.

Flood Lights

Unlike many of the other bulbs and applications, flood lights and their cans are essentially identical, whether they are employed in commercial or residential settings. Flood lights can be used inside or out, as long as the appropriate fixture is chosen. LED bulbs light instantly and can cycle frequently making them much more appropriate for security lighting than CFL bulbs.

Buying Supplies

While commercial applications are best served by online sellers or directly from the manufacturers, the homeowner has another option. LED bulbs are beginning to show up in home supply stores. The prices are high, though, and a gradual replacement policy is probably best for most individuals.

Among the advantages homeowners will note a decrease in energy costs, little need to change bulbs regularly and less heat build up during hot months. This translates into a secondary benefit when you dont need to cool your house quite as much.

Expect to pay about $20-$30 for a bulb designed to replace your standard 60w light. Some bulbs are dimmable, so if that is important in the setting you have in mind, make sure that you check for that feature. Also, take some time to learn about lumens, which is the most appropriate replacement wattage and so forth.

I planted my lettuce this year and it grew wonderfully, until I picked them and there were slugs insides. So I had to find a tried and true way to get rid of slugs in my garden naturally, without using harm chemicals and pesticides.

Slugs are those slimy creatures that come out at night and leave a trail of shiny slime behind them. Slugs will devour your vegetables, like my lettuce and they also like some plants.

There are some that like to keep slugs as pets, yes….well to each his own, right?

Getting rid of slugs can be as easy as crushing up egg shells and adding the crushed egg shells to your soil. Egg shells are also a great addition to help compost the soil. My mom used egg shells in all her house plants.

Crush the egg shells into small pieces, till or mix into your soil or place around the bottom of your plant

The egg shells act as shards of glass and the slugs will avoid attacking your lettuce and plants. I recommend adding the crushed egg shells to the soil and till before you plant.

Give the slimy creatures a Beer to help get rid of slugs in your garden. Yes, it really does work. There was a study done at Colorado State University , yep a study, on the best brand of beer that slugs like the most. Kingsbury Malt and Budweiser came out on top, but you can use any beer.

My slugs like Bud Light, it’s what we drink in our home and we like to share. Don’t use stale beer, the slugs like it just as much as we do! Wait until dusk and fill an old margarine tub top with beer and place on top of the soil as close to the damaged plants as possible. The next morning they should be filled with dead drunken slugs.

If you are not a beer drinker and don’t want to spend money on beer for your slimy friends. Spritz your slugs with some coffee. Research has found caffeine to be very effective at deterring slugs. Save your old coffee from the morning and spray them full strength directly on the beasts in the evening. You can even place your coffee grounds around your plants to deter the slugs.

Slugs get shocked when they touch copper. You can buy ready made copper guards or use pennies to get rid of slugs in your garden. Place pennies around your plants to keep our slimy friends from a feast on your garden.

Place some old wooden planks between your garden beds. Our slimy slugs will crawl underneath to hide from the sun. In the morning lift the boards and the slugs will be on the boards. Scrape the slimy slugs from the board into a bucket and dispose of.

Even better is placing a newspaper wet with sugar water to even further lure our slimy creatures. This will keep the slugs our to your garden

According to observers and analysts of psychic phenomena, each one of us has some form of psychic ability, however only a few people are able to harness, and fully utilise these talents. If the individual has the will and determination to harness it, with the right training and mindset, the person will truly be able to enhance his or her psychic powers. Here are a number of helpful hints on how to unlock your spiritual psychic abilities.

Accept Your Abilities, And Direct Your Intuition
One of the first steps towards enhancing your spiritual psychic skills is by affirming, and accepting that you have one. The reason why more than 90 percent of us fail to unleash our psychic abilities is because we do not believe we have one, and we do not show any interest as well in enhancing it. However, if you truly accept and affirm that you are psychic, this will be the first step towards fully achieving your objectives.

Sharpen Your Meditation Skills
The next step in enhancing your psychic abilities, is by learning to meditate. Meditation offers a wide array of physical and psychological benefits. It helps ease stress, improves concentration and focus, and enables the individual to reach deeper into his subconscious, and sharpen his intuition. Meditation also strengthens the bond between mind, body and spirit, enabling the person to achieve awareness of psychic spirituality. To effectively meditate, reserve a room or location at home for daily meditation. Ensure that the room is free from any clutter or noise, and far from outside distractions. Next, sit comfortably on the floor, close your eyes, and allow your thoughts to relax. Next, focus on a person, place or object, and thoroughly observe that thing or place. Remember that there is no right or wrong way to meditate, the important thing is that as long as you’re able to relax and focus your mind, then you’re doing it the right way.

Be More Aware Of Your Surroundings
Another way for enhancing your psychic spirituality is being more aware of your surroundings. One nice exercise would be to lie still in bed for a few minutes each time you wake up in the morning. And while you’re lying in bed with your eyes closed, try to notice as many sounds, textures and smells. Breathe deeply each time you sense or smell the things around you, and after a few minutes pen your eyes.

As you continue meditating and increasing your awareness and perception levels, you will slowly realize a discernible improvement in your spiritual psychic abilities. As you continue with the meditation and awareness exercises, you will also discover that intuitive information will be made available to you, in bit and pieces. Thus, you need to pay constant attention to any random feelings and thoughts that suddenly race across your mind. Soon however, you will notice a pattern will emerge from all those randoms ideas or thoughts, which will begin to form into a recognizable idea.

Landscaping

By definition, landscape gardening, or garden landscaping is the design of public and outdoor environments to meet specific requirements or objectives. These objectives may involve, in the instance of a public park for example, the landscaping of an area to include seating for park users, lighting, and a playground for children. Landscape gardening is also known as landscape architecture, which is perhaps a more descriptive term, since landscape gardeners will typically design, plan, construct, and oversee the development of an area of landscape that they have been contracted to work on. Many additional services are often offered by landscapers due to the nature of the work, which can include construction, carpentry, tree surgery, fencing, and ground working.
The history of landscape gardening unsurprisingly derives from the design, planning and management of large estates, manors, royal palaces and residencies. During the 18th and 19th centuries, demand grew for the design of increasingly lavish and decadent gardens among the royal palaces and noble residencies. It is thanks to these commissions that we can now enjoy such delights as the gardens of the Palace of Versailles in France, designed by the famous Andr Le Ntre, and the beautiful gardens of Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, England.
Throughout the 19th century, the need for urban planning grew with the rapid development and growth of many cities. The term -landscape architect’ first began to be used by professionals in 1863 when Frederick Law Olmsted adopted the term. Olmsted was in fact responsible for defining many early practises of American landscape architecture in some of his great commissions, which include the famous Central Park in New York City.
Today in the UK, the Landscape Institute (LI) is responsible for promoting and regulating the profession of landscape gardening and landscape architecture. It currently has approximately 6,000 members.
RVDM Landscaping offers a comprehensive range of expert landscape gardening services including ground working and construction services.

Home Improvement

The sun has been with us from the beginning. Because of the high cost of energy bills, the interest in discovering alternative energy has grown. Solar energy is a great option for several nations that get a lot of sunshine. With every technological improvement and the fall in price, thousands of households today are switching over to solar energy. Your home can produce quite a bit of electrical energy even if you just have a couple of solar panels and very little sunlight. Incorporate to this the fact the money necessary for a normal pv panels installment is now substantially less than it had been not too long ago then this absolutely does become a practical electrical power alternative like never before.

One problem is that most households are not situated right for taking advantage of the sun. More efficient designs today, however, have made it easier to generate electricity without requiring a lot of sunlight. The contemporary solar panel system are set up at a more steeper angle so homes that are not positioned to obtain a lot of sunlight can still create electricity. Many systems these days use a rail system which allows the solar batteries to be set for optimal exposure. Moreover, the design of the system is set up for easy expansion and growth.

Before setting up a solar energy system, you must know your electricity requirements. Once you have worked out your household electricity consumption, you will know how big a system you will need. If you have a limited budget, you can start small and see if you need to expand later on. Using this system as an alternative, in the coming months, you should be able to lower your expenses by 85%. You can start out with a solar panel system that runs the outdoor lights then gradually have it setup to power the electricity in your house. However ultimately as a consequence of the total that solar panels now have decreased in selling price in recent times well then, your recommended looking for a full installment to truly employ the potential for your own home .

The inverter is the most crucial thing to consider when you are putting in your solar panel system. You have to make sure that you have the right size because the inverter will convert DC to AC. If you pick the wrong size, your system will be unable to meet your power needs. Even with a smaller solar panel system, it is advisable to have a larger inverter, so you will only need to wire them in, when you expand your system. Don’t try to install the inverter yourself, but hire a certified electrician to put it in for you. The danger comes when the solar panel system has to be connected to the electrical system of the house. Don’t try this on your own unless you are a certified electrician.

If you want a reason to get a solar energy system, the state and federal governments are giving homeowners incentives to install their own system. You can install your own clean energy system without spending much of your own money. This is a fantastic beginning to trying to live a green lifestyle. It can be this kind of endeavours that this is hoped will look to make use of the solar pv panels and alternative energy in most cases into the general audience a lot more than previously.

Remove Carpet Stains & Clean Carpet

Throughout the year, carpets can take a toll. Everyday life can leave a mark on your carpets. Spilled food and drinks, art and craft projects, smudged makeup, spilled paint, muddy boots and pets can leave your carpet unsightly and embarrassing. In addition to the visible stains, there is also buildup in carpet. From dander to pollen, unseen particles can cause health related issues which aggravate allergies and skin conditions. Even further below the carpet, bacteria can promote mold growth which can cause respiratory issues and destroy your carpet.

Keeping carpet clean is an important task and should be done not just to keep your house looking presentable, but also to reduce factors that can contribute to poor health. Spring and Fall are the best times to give your carpet a thorough cleaning to remove any buildup which has settled into the carpet over the seasons. However it always seems the carpet needs to be cleaned when it is most inconvenient. An unexpected spill often triggers the urge to clean before the stain sets in. Because of this, people typically grab the most convenient cleaner and start scrubbing away.

Unfortunately, many of these cleaners are unsafe. Many contain harsh chemicals that can impose health risks. Simple Green contains 2-buthoxyethanol, which can damage red blood cells and irritate the eyes. Spot Shot may be fatal if inhaled. Febreeze, 409 and other ammonium or ethonalamine based can cause and trigger asthma. Some of these cleaners have been cited as releasing up to 89 air contaminants. The Environmental Working Group has composed a list of products on their Hall Of Shame. This list outlines the dangers in a number cleaning products.

In addition to being unsafe, many household cleaners do not properly remove stains. Many of these cleaners contain toxins which will alter the carpet. A proper cleaner can safely break down the stain. Genesis 950 is a safe, green cleaner which uses water as it’s primary mode to remove stains. Genesis 950 is a surfactant based cleaner. A surfactant based cleaner uses water to make a stained area water soluble. When a stain becomes water soluble, it’s bonds are broken. Once the bonds of a stain are broken, it loses it’s adherence to the surface it has been attached to. It can then be rinsed from the surface.

Genesis 950 can be used as a spot cleaner to target specific stains, or it can be used in a machine to clean entire carpets. Either way, it is the best cleaner for a number of reasons. First and foremost, it is safe. It does not contain any regulated chemicals like other cleaners. There is no 2-buthoxyethanol, ammonium or ethonalamine. Genesis 950 will not provoke asthma, respiratory issues, or fatal reactions. It is a green product, designed with the safety of the environment, pets, children and families in mind.

Genesis 950 can handle all types of stains. Initially designed in the early 80’s, it has been used for decades to remove industrial ink from printing presses. In 2011 it was made available to the public as a general all purpose cleaner. Because of it’s ability to break down food stains, makeup stains, paint stains, and even pet stains, it has become one of the most popular carpet cleaners on the market.

Pet owners love Genesis 950 because it can remove vomit and urine stains as well as odors. It does so without harming the surface being cleaned, or the pet. In addition to removing stains, it also removes odors.

Remove Pet Stains & Odors From Carpet

Pet urine and vomit can make carpet unsightly. It can also cause a great deal of frustration when it comes to cleaning them. If not properly cleaned, it can also cause a shift in the bathroom patterns of pets. Animals, both cats and dogs, urinate where they smell they have gone before. If an area is not properly cleaned, they will be drawn to that spot repeatedly. Unfortunately, some people follow some terrible advice in regards to cleaning pet stains and find themselves with an animal that keeps going in that spot.

The worst advice by far is the recommendation of vinegar as a solution to clean pet stains. Vinegar, as well as ammonia, has a pH level with an acidic base. This pH level is comparable of that found in urine. As a result, the acidic odor confuses your pet into thinking that is the spot to go to the bathroom. Even the Humane Society advises to stay away from vinegar and ammonia. Likewise, cleaning products containing ammonium compounds have the same effect. It is for this reason you see so many people baffled that their pets won’t stop going in the house. More often than not, it is not a housebreaking issue, but an issue revolving around cleaners used that draw animals to urinate in the spot they were used.

Another issue in dealing with pets is the odor below the carpet surface. When an animal urinates on carpet, the urine travels downward. It becomes infused in the padding and the fibers of the carpet. Surface cleaning a spot will not remove the odor underlying the carpet. While you might not be able to smell it, you pet can. As they sniff about the carpet, when they come across the section with an old stain in the padding, they are likely to go to the bathroom there again.

Another huge misconception is that baking soda or air fresheners will remove the odor. This is false. Baking soda is a neutralizer when introduced to an acidic component. Neutralizing and odor is not the same as deodorizing. To remove pet odors, the bacteria causing them needs to be destroyed. Air fresheners, in addition to releasing contaminants and asthma inducing chemicals, only mask odors. They do not neutralize or deodorize them. Genesis 950 kills the bacteria in the carpet and completely removes the odor . . . safely!

This carpet was full of pet stains. It was cleaned with traditional cleaners over the course of several years. The cleaners themselves created more staining and left discolored blotches throughout the carpet. Typically, these cleaners are soap based. As soap attracts dirt, the marks left behind by those cleaners only became more prominent as time went on.

Because the cleaners used did not deodorize the area, the pets repeatedly went to the bathroom throughout the carpet. This was not a housebreaking issue. It was an issue caused by the odor not being properly removed and the animals being drawn back to that spot as their bathroom.

Pet stains, as well as other stains, should be cleaned using a steam cleaning or carpet cleaning machine. There are a number of machines available for retail consumers. They are great investments, as they can restore carpet and keep your home clean. For those who prefer, these machines can be rented from local grocery and hardware stores. Genesis 950 is compatible with all types of cleaning machines.

To remove pet stains, and the associated odors, Genesis 950 should be used at a mixing ratio of 1/3 Genesis 950 to 2/3 water. Typical cleaning recommendations for general cleaning are 1 part Genesis 950 to 7 parts water, however pet stains can be more persistent and for this reason, the ration can be increased. In extreme cases, Genesis 950 can be mixed with water at a 50/50 ratio. There should not be more water than Genesis 950 though as it is the water which activates it and enables the stain to be broken down.

After being cleaned in a machine at a ratio of 1/3 Genesis 950 to 2/3 water, the pet stains and odor were completely removed, as were the marks left behind from other cleaners.

Genesis 950 can also tackle surface stains. Whether it’s food, make up or unknown stains, use Genesis 950 in a spray bottle with water at the general cleaning ratio of 1 part Genesis 950 to 7 parts water. Spray the area, then rinse clean with water and allow to dry.

In addition to pet stains, Genesis 950 removes many other types of stains.

Kitchen appliances – New appliances attracts prospective buyers. This is because they won’t spend time on purchasing kitchen appliances anymore as this is available in your remodeled kitchen.

Sinks made of stainless steel – If the sinks appear shiny and new, then it adds attractiveness to your kitchen appearance.

Floor Tiles and backsplash – Freeing them from any stain or molds and making them shiny as new can also attract prospective buyers.

The bathroom can be the smallest place in the house and yet can really add a huge return on investment when it is improved to look as brand new. Here are few fixtures that may need improvement:

* Bathroom Cabinets
* Bathroom sinks
* Toilet bowls
* Bath tubs
* Towel rack
* Tissue and toothbrush holders
* Mirrors
* Bathroom tiles and flooring
* Bathroom windows and shades

Gardening

Hydroponics is becoming more popular throughout the world. This is one way of growing plants without using soil. Many people who love gardening such as horticulturists prefer to incorporate hydroponic growing methods for their gardens because of the higher yields and plants grow faster in this method. There are still some benefits and drawbacks, although hydroponics can be used on both outdoor and indoor areas. If you decide to make a hydroponic garden within your home, it would make logic to study both surroundings in order to determine which spot would be the most suitable place to set up your hydroponic system.

When it comes to outdoor surroundings, the major advantage of outdoor surroundings for growing plants hydroponically is that you will have more space to create your garden in. aside from bigger freedom of space, garden frequently benefit from exposure to natural sunlight. But, creating a garden outdoors can come with a lot of disputes that may be annoying and time-consuming. Outdoor gardens have an inclination to attract a number of various pests such as aphids or mites, together of which can tear down your plants and cause a frustrating barrier to their healthy growth. Moreover, diverse plants have diverse light and temperature necessities. Some plants merely grow in definite seasons and under precise conditions which may not be characteristic of your definite type of weather.

In an indoor environment, making a garden inside your household or inside some sort of closed-in construction offers numerous possibilities for creating a thriving growth space that you can directly manipulate and have much greater control over than if you were to grow your plants outdoors. On the other hand, you must remember that establishing an indoor garden can cost a lot of money.
