I originally purchased this as a gift for my sister but decided to keep it for myself! I love the health features – step count, calories burned, heart rate. But I’m surprised how many features it has for the price. I was planning on replacing my fitbit anyway but this is leaps and bounds above the fitbit functions. It’s basically an affordable apple watch! I just got everything synced up and am pleasantly surprised by the call and message alerts – bonus that I don’t have to look at my phone all the time to decide if I’m going to answer/reply. Definitely happy with this purchase.
I run a large organic community garden. We grow several tons of produce for our local food pantry. One of the biggest problems that we have is rot on our green leafy plants and rust on our tomatoes. I bought Garden Magic from Terra Nova to help combat that. Garden Magic helps break down matter in the soil to make it more beneficial to the plants. With a stronger internal structure the plants can’t withstand more stresses from the environment. This is a great product for the casual home gardener as well as larger scale farmers like myself.
Mushroom Growing 4 You
The basics of mushroom growingMany people don’t realize that mushroom growing is something that can be done right in their own greenhouse. And since mushrooms are such a wonderful food, this can be a superb addition to one’s diet. However, you may need to change things about in your greenhouse if you want to grow mushrooms, because the one thing these edible fungi cannot stand is too much light. Yes, they can tolerate a little light, but perhaps I should modify that statement and say that they can tolerate a VERY little light.Better than even a little light is no light at all. They also like a stable temperature range, so make sure that stays within the range of between fifty and sixty degrees Fahrenheit – anything more than that will cause problems for your mushrooms. You need to be careful to keep out any draughts. The air needs to be moist, because that’s just how mushrooms like it. If you’ve looked at any mushrooms growing in the woods, you’ll have noticed that they don’t exactly grow in the soil. Similarly, when you grow them in your greenhouse, or even in a garden shed, you’re going to have to arrange (or buy) a special growing medium for them.There are two ways of going about mushroom growing, and the method that you choose will depend upon just how many of these fungi you plan to grow. If you’re starting out on the very smallest scale, a log of wood should do just fine for a growing medium. Yes, that’s absolutely right, you can grow mushrooms on a log of wood. And why should that surprise you – haven’t you seen them growing around tree stumps in the woods? All you need is a good log of some reasonably hard type of wood – oak does just fine.Take that log and make a few reasonable holes in it, and fill each of them with some mushroom spawn. Then let nature take its course. If, on the other hand, you intend to grow mushrooms on a larger scale, you’re going to need to bed them down in trays filled with a special mushroom growing medium. Well, I did tell you before that they won’t grow in soil. What you’re going to need is some compost mixed up with straw or a mixture of straw and horse manure. You can plant the mushroom spawn in this, and your mushrooms will grow just fine. If you need to grow more mushrooms, you’ll just have to set out more trays and set aside more space for your mushroom growing.
I’ve been using Advanced Nutes for over three years now, I was buying it today when I decided to read some reviews for this product. I’ve found this was perfect for me as a beginner hydro grower, now I still use it out of the convenience for no ph monitoring. From the reviews I’ve read, perhaps I can give some tips:
PH perfect variations: Following the instructions means you’re using this in a hydro base; water, coco, etc. I’ve had 0 variations oh ph no matter what water I use. It’s always 5.4, which is perfect for what I grow.
It works! Be patient. In my case, the mushrooms appeared on day 7. Oyster mushrooms, in my opinion, have the best taste, very potent and clean flavor. They are perfect for soups, sauces, and sauté well with other veggies and meats. There’s no earthy taste to them at all. A word of caution, when ready to harvest, collect the entire batch. I made a mistake of cutting three mushrooms only, leaving the rest until the next day. Unfortunately, the bunch dried out completely over night. They were bone dry and hard. When I tried to get them going again by using the back of the package, I had no luck. Overall, a decent product,my it it does need more clear instructions.
This coconut oil is amazing. I’ve tried others and always go back to this one. I use it to wash makeup off, condition my hair, as a body moisturizer & internally by adding teaspoon with my oatmeal daily..I have had psoriasis for a number of years, with prescription steroid ointments. This has truly help control my psoriasis scalp & body. I use this everyday and can’t go without it. Highly recommended.
