Moving rain water with gravity to your garden.

We all know how gravity works. Now lets make it work for us even more.  How else we can utilize this wonderful power. In a simple form, we can use it in our irrigation, and watering needs by installing a gravity watering system. Not all irrigation projects can be handled by a gravity system, but many small gardens can be watered easily without the use of expensive equipment and electricity. They are also easy to repair considering that its a lightweight system. Damaged section can be changed quickly or even the entire system can be taken apart with not much work involved.

How to water a small vegetable garden between 1600 to 2500 sqft with a gravity system utilizing a pool as a cistern.

  • Place a pool near the garden “the pool will accumulate water when it rains, additional rain can be obtained by linking your gutters to your poolslotted pipe
  • Now lets distribute the pool/cistern water to your garden with slotted-pipe systems. You will have to rely on the pressure of the water in the pool to push the water out and through the slotted pipping system.
  • Install a drain valve in the bottom of your pool/cistern. The drain valve opens to release the water into the slotted pipe system, having full control over your watering needs. cistern drain valve
  • The type of slotted pipe used for this system is sold in large rolls. The solid portion of the pipe faces downward towards the ground. The slotted portion facing upward, with the end capped off. The slotted pipe system will collect water until its full, pushing out water through the slotted areas.SlottedPipeTManifold
  • The slotted pipes should be surrounded by crushed stone and covered with a filter fabric so that the water runs through the stone, with the fabric preventing clogging. You can use any type of spikes to hold down the fabric. Also secure the pipes in place with u shaped ground spikes and make them extremely noticeable  so people wont step on them. The slotted pipe walls are thin and can be easily damaged if stepped on.

Beware of the cleaning risk with bleach.

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????As far as I can remember about my mom’s cleaning, she always use bleach cleaner as her primary cleaning choice. She used it on the floors, countertops, dishes, bathroom, anywhere the household needed cleaning. I remember the strong stinging odor, my eyes would water, a spontaneous headache would flare up, followed by difficulty breathing. Obviously she was unaware of the implications of inhaling fumes from bleach/clorox.
My question now; how can something so common in the household be allowed in the home? Bleach contains chlorine which is made mostly of sodium hypochlorite and sensitizers. It can be corrosive, and it can irritate the eyes, skin, and respiratory system. It is especially hazardous to those with heart conditions or asthma, and it can be fatal if swallowed. It can irritate your eyes and skin, as well as damage your central nervous system, kidney, and liver. It is readily absorbed through the skin and damages your body’s ability to make blood.

  • Bleach can blister your skin, cause inflammation, burning pain. Long use or exposure to bleach can cause you irritation or allergic reactions.
  • Also at low concentrations it can still cause you, tearing or mild eye irritation.
  • Concentrated bleach can immediately cause severe health problems, eye damage/injuries, clouded vision, rapid inflammation, cataracts, middle ear swelling, regular strong bleach exposure can potentially cause permanent eye, lung, respiratory damage.
Substitute bleach with Vinegar! You will be amazed, how effective vinegar is for disinfecting, washing, softening fabrics, removing odor or stains, removing mineral deposits, and the list goes on….

How to plant your tree?

Newly planted trees need special attention, and the right steps need to be followed to ensure a great start. Upon planting the tree, it will begin extending its roots into the soil. Its crucial that it gets the right attention to thrive.

Tree are sold different ways; Bare Root Trees

Bare-root /deciduous trees; Bare root trees look like witches broom ready for halloween, they preferably available for planting after the fall season, winter the dormant season.

Balled and burlapped trees; These trees are duged up bulapped treeswith the roots holding the soil, and wrapped up with burlap for distribution. Be careful to check for cracks or breaks in the root ball. Make sure the trunk doesn’t rock or move in the soil ball.

Container grown trees; Container grown trees are familiar plants container grown treesyou always see at the lawn and garden retail stores. One thing to note about these trees is to check for circling or densely matted roots as it is a sign that the plant has been in the pot for to long, and will not grow very well in the soil because of the tree farmers negligence.

Once you have chosen your tree; follow these steps ensure that your tree gets everything it needs to thrive.

  1. Dig the appropriate hole; the hole should be deep enough to accommodate the roots (use a stick to determine depth) and two to three time as wide as the root ball. The soil must be loose around the trees root making it easier for the tree to sink in its roots. Slant the wall of the hoe outward and loosen them with a shovel or garden for to allow easy root penetration; if your soil is poor, mucky clay or gravel through, work compost or organic matter such as composted fir bark into the backfill soil. You can also build a raised bed that can provide a more expansive rooting area.
  2. Now plant the tree into the hole; Balled-root trees; these can come one of two ways – with a single, thick taproot that extends directly down from the trunk or a fibrous, branched-root system. Tap rooted trees are placed in the hole so the trees’ nursery soil line (you’ll see a color change from light to dark along the trunk) is even with the surface of the soil and the hole is filled. For fibrous rooted trees, set the base of the roots on a cone of soil in the middle of the hole, adjusting the cone height so that the plant’s nursery soil line is even with the surrounding soil. Spread the roots in different and then refill the hole.Container-grown trees: Loosen any roots that have become tangled inside the pot by spraying off the soil from the outer inch or two of the rootball. Cut off roots that are broken or permanently damaged. Balled and burlapped trees: remove the burlap, nails, and any twine or wire used for wrapping after setting the ball in place in the hole (very gently so the root ball doesn’t break). If you dont do this, the burlap, nails, and twine may interfere with future growth or strangle the trunk. soil water basin
  3. Water the tree: to help direct irrigation and rainwater to new roots, create a soil watering basin at least 4 to 6 inches high just outside the rootball. Water the tree continuously, don’t let the soil completely dry out for six months to a year – even longer where summers are hot and dry. Proper-tree-stakes
  4. Stake and mulch; drive two tree stakes in the soil behind the root. Attached tree ties to the tree at the lowest point at which the tree stays upright. Tie loosely so the trunk can move in the wind and gain trunk strength. A tree with a strong trunk stands on its own without staking. However, if the tree was staked in the nursery or if your planting in a windy location, proper staking will help support the tree during its first years in the ground. After that, stakes must be removed.

Measuring your well water reserve?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHow to measure how much you have?

  • Take a piece of jute cord, or some similar string, and tie a small item with weight on it, acting as a fishing pole weight. Your cord length will depend on the length of your well.
  • Uncover your well. Drop in your weighted string down the well until you hit the bottom, or until you see/feel the string is developing slack.
  • Pull back your string. Pay close attention to where the wet comes together with the dry section.
  • Mark your dry and wet intersection with a knot. Measure the length of the string that is wet. Measure 1
  • Measure the diameter of the well – “Drilled wells are typically four inches wide, dug wells are about three feet wide” Measure 2
  • Now with your two measurements “Measure 1 & Measure 2” Contact a well dealer, with these two measurements. A pump dealer can calculate the number of gallons of water available in the well. – Example a shallow well with a diameter of 3 feet and a water reserve of 7 feet contains approximately 371 gallons of water.
