#growyourown #gardens Grow your cherry tomatoes on the commute with Ex-Countryfile presenter Julia Bradbury

Family gardening or ‘community gardening’ is becoming a huge project for urban cities as they tackle the lack of accessible green space by introducing pop up gardens. That’s exactly where Julia is today thanks to a partnership between the Honest organic tea company and national charity Groundwork. She explains, “Right now I’m standing on a building site in Stratford where we’ve got a temporary garden. I’m surrounded by gorgeous railway sleepers and boxes of curly Kale and beetroot. The birds are singing while the building cranes are in the background, it’s a real juxtaposition of urban and green space.”

China's Awkward #Debt Problem

When the chairman of China’s Dongbei Special Steel Group hanged himself last year, it was clear that something at the firm was going horribly wrong. Next, the company defaulted on nine separate corporate bonds, telling creditors that it lacked the money to pay its bills. Dongbei declared bankruptcy last October.

How much does the average household that carries credit card debt owe?
The average American household carries $6,184 in credit card debt. However, this figure is somewhat misleading as not every household carries this type of debt. If we exclude households that do not carry credit card debt, and consider only those that do, how much credit card debt does the typical household carry?

We are frail species and if there is a God, then her funniest little joke on us must have been creation of mental illness and mental, social and emotional dysfunction as an inherent aspect of hard-wired, neurological makeup. If you've ever known anyone that struggles with such things then you might have noted that they smoke to self medicate. It's an attempt to cope with torment. I myself do not smoke...

I was traveling down Woodfield road in a small village toward my storage area for spent fuel rods from U.S. nuclear plants when I stopped to view a pond someone had set up with goldfish. Since I hate nature and all to do with it I went about my way.

Treating rainwater for increased buffering in garden ponds.


rainwater is too soft for a garden pond. The lack of dissolved salts reduces its pH (acid and alkali) buffering. Easy solution - add oyster shell grit, or similar, to your rainwater butts :)

pH buffering garden ponds to protect fish during heatwave!

Our recent heatwave (up to 34C) has been problematic for my pond. All the usual water quality tests are excellent, but being mainly rainwater, there are very little dissolved salts.

The recent heatwave created a burst of vegetative growth which used up the nitrate (nitrate plus water = nitrous ACID) and CO2 (CO2 plus water = carbonic ACID). The result was a very alkaline pH which is not healthy for the fish.

Fortunately, the solution is simple - add gypsum, which buffers the pH. I tried this last night, the alkalinity has decreased by 90% overnight and is just within the acceptable range.

I gave up on having fish in my pond due to the extreme winters we can have. It's expensive to keep a pond heater running constantly. My pond is deep but there still must be an air hole and the heater has to struggle keeping up against -20F temps. Now I have an aquarium with a few tropical fish and I enjoy them. Now that I know what it takes to have a successful aquarium it's no wonder my fish constantly died when I had an aquarium as a child. I didn't have a clue. :) As for my pond... it is mostly a bog with a waterfall. The frogs and toads love it. During the Spring mating season the sound they put out at night can deafen you! No sleeping with the window open! :D

Greetings sir! Douchebag Industries has just purchased Tesco. Under my personal guidance all produce at Tesco will be organically grown at one of my vast Monsanto factory farms. In another move of genius I purchased the Grand Canyon in America from my dear friend Donnie T. I shall use the giant pit as a dumping place. Landfill space in the States is getting scarce. No more. I shall make a healthy profit from the waste disposal companies. Once the canyon is full I'll purchase an ocean for dumping! My brilliance knows no bounds....Quite.

Oh dear. Trumpenstein has been taking lessons from Buffet the Buffoon - who generously rushed to the aid of the victims of sub prime housing fiasco in USA (lost their homes) and built huge trailer parks in order to trap them in rented bondage until they die - probably with a sigh of relief.

No other species concocts such evil ...

I find your comedy writing most excellent! I laughed with great gusto as Jeeves read your post as he was carrying me to view my garden. Alas,I spotted a weed and 5 of my gardeners had to be sent to the doss house. But..an upgrade from their current living conditions. I must go now...Lord Trump has contacted me regarding work camps under construction for the underclass.
