Re: How is the COVID-19 pandemic affecting you?

In places with poor healthcare, people tend to stay home to die. So death tolls from outbreaks like this can only be measured looking backward and comparing mortality rates.

Canning jars are nowhere to be found. I have heard they are going for $50 per dozen on Amazon.

If we can let prisoners out of jail to fight fires, we should be able to let them volunteer to be vaccine Guinea pigs, in exchange for a reduced sentence.

Re: How is the COVID-19 pandemic affecting you?

How on earth do these people get this information to even try to scam. Maybe its Google tracking them on their phones then giving out information. I worked at a giant truck tire shop putting in a security system and got an email asking me how I liked my experience at the tire shop. All I did was lo...

Re: Israeli Tomato Hydroponics

Fwiw if anyone is building a system like that, coco peat is an alternative to rockwool that is much more user and earth friendly. It may not be worthwhile on a commercial scale, but on a home garden level the cost difference is not significant. On that note, there are also a lot of more efficient wa...

Re: How is the COVID-19 pandemic affecting you?

It could have been the state's legal consultants, in that it is easier to defend in court if you are just fining someone. The burden of proof switches from the 99% beyond a reasonable doubt standard to the civil standard which is preponderance of the evidence, roughly 51% chance the accused is guilt...

They still let them buy food. So they can show up with an expensive catered buffet, but they can't give you a pencil.

I remembered when we didn't let drug companies advertise on TV. Those were the days.

Re: How is the COVID-19 pandemic affecting you?

Runny nose is actually a quite common symptom. A family member of mine is a contact tracer and deals with positive people daily, which is my source for that info. I don't know if it has been reported in cdc or official sources.

Re: Seeds reconditioning

I don't think a quick soak in an oxidizer would do any harm. They dry faster than they germinate. You could try it with just a few seeds first to make sure. Sorry guys, I may not phrase my question correctly. I don't care about aesthetics but I do care about seeds health. I afraid that soaking seeds...

Re: Reducing heat in hot peppers

And in regard to the original question, other posters mentioned moisture. I agree. I would probably make a grow mix with a lot of perlite and experiment with keeping the pots in a shallow bin of water all the time, at least in hot weather. Roots can stay wet all the time if oxygen levels are high en...

Re: How is the COVID-19 pandemic affecting you?

5 months immunity is my guess based on the family I know of in Italy that took that long to catch it again. On the bright side, if you catch it, you can plan your dream vacation for after you recover and enjoy some low priced travel. The very best case scenario would be to get a vaccine through phas...

Re: How is the COVID-19 pandemic affecting you?

If there is an ice maker line to attach, I would make sure to double check their work. I like to wrap a piece of dry paper towel around a new plumbing connection. Leaks can be insidiously hard to spot, but they don't get past the paper towel. If it is dry the next day, you are good.

Re: Seeds reconditioning

Oxy Clean! Wow, thanks. Use it for washing prior to drying seeds, or do you soak them in it just prior to sowing? Mix freshly squeezed seeds with one cup water and one tbsp of oxy clean. It eats the gel off the outside. I'm not sure it matters how long you let it sit. 30 to 45 minutes is enough, bu...

Re: Tomato Knife Show and Tell

From what I understand, there are samurai swords that are many hundreds of years old, yet contain steel that is superior to anything in the modern world.

I like to browse the antiques at this site:

Oxy clean is the oxidation product. It is similar to peroxide.

Re: How is the COVID-19 pandemic affecting you?

A friend of mine had what turned out to be a heart attack earlier this week. He is in his late 40s. He has health insurance and lives next to a hospital, but almost did not go get treatment, because the deductible on his insurance is about $4,000. He spoke with his sister on the phone who is a nurse...
