first_imgBy George Boyhan Georgia Extension Service Volume XXVII Number 1 Page 9 Transplants can make your garden more successful. And they’ve been around for a long time, although they haven’t always been available in nice, easy-to-handle six-packs.Some backgroundAt first, vegetable transplants were field-grown, pulled, wrapped in bundles bare-root and sold to growers and homeowners. Large numbers of transplants were handled this way both for commercial growers and serious gardeners.In fact, your local feed-and-seed probably still handles many transplants this way. Most of your cool-season crops — onions, collards, broccoli, etc. — are still available this way.These transplants are great because they’re relatively cheap, and you can get them in fairly large quantities for bigger gardens.Transplants have come a long way, however, and many more are available in small plastic packs of three to 12 plants. These packs are sold separately or in a tray called a flat.The plants are grown in peat-based media in greenhouses. They used to be available only in the spring and early summer. But more and more can be found at other times of the year and suitable for the particular season.Transplant advantagesTransplants have some real advantages over direct seeding. You’re guaranteed a perfect stand, since you’ll be putting a transplant everywhere you want a plant — no more skips or overseeding.Your crop will be ready earlier, too. If you can’t wait for that red-ripe tomato, fresh bell pepper or head of cauliflower, with transplants the wait is much shorter.When seeds germinate, they’re very susceptible to diseases and insects, which can be devastating. Transplants are tougher and better able to withstand such onslaughts.If you’re really ambitious, you might want to try growing your own. You can buy ready-made potting soil from many outlets, and flats with the pack inserts are also available. Plant seeds at a depth that’s about twice the diameter of the seed.Larger seeds are easier to handle and would be best for beginners. Watermelon, cantaloupe and squash are good choices.Don’t try everythingSome root crops such as carrots aren’t suitable for transplanting. The large taproot can become damaged in the transplanting process.Corn and potatoes can’t be transplanted well, either. With corn, disturbing the roots dramatically affects the plants’ growth. And since potatoes are grown from seed pieces (potato pieces), they don’t require transplanting.last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Ex-Molde defender Toivo: What Man Utd players can expect from Dempseyby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Molde defender Joona Toivo is happy for Mark Dempsey over his return to Manchester United.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s long-time assistant has followed the Norwegian to Old Trafford and was back helping out at Carrington for the first time this week alongside Mike Phelan, Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.”He was really enthusiastic in his coaching. As a person, he has this fire in him – everything is done to the full,” Finland international Toivo told the Manchester Evening News.”I think he is great at creating fighting spirit in the team and encouraging players to be the best they can be. He has a lot of knowledge about football and understands the game really well.”There was a lot of concentration on first touches and observing the play with Mark in training: where and how you took the first touch. He played as a midfielder when he was a player and he often said ‘play what you see’. By that, he also meant to keep it simple and to not try difficult stuff.”He was really like a friend. He’s a guy who loves to tell stories and jokes and loves to make people laugh and play pranks.” last_img read more

first_imgCALGARY – The association that represents Canadian oil and gas drilling companies says it expects “muted stability” for the industry in 2018 despite recent strengthening in oil prices.The Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors is calling for 6,138 wells to be drilled in its 2018 forecast, an increase of just 107 from the number expected to be drilled this year.It says the Canadian rig fleet is expected to shrink by 19 to a total of 615 next year as drilling contractors continue to struggle to find capital needed to keep older equipment running and reinvest in replacement rigs.Last month, the Petroleum Services Association of Canada said it also expects a slight recovery in drilling in Canada in 2018 versus this year but the count will still be 30 per cent lower than in 2014 when oil prices peaked at more than US$100 per barrel.New York-traded crude closed at US$56.42 per barrel on Monday, up from lows of less than US$43 in June.Alberta government-owned lender ATB Financial said Monday the energy sector has “stabilized” and will enjoy a modest rebound in activity next year, helping fuel 3.9 per cent provincial economic growth.last_img read more

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – When it came to the weather in Fort St. John, the month of September was considered to be quite on average.According to Environment Canada Meteorologist, Doug Lindquist, Fort St. John’s weather was right on average during September when it came to temperature and precipitation.Lindquist says the average temperature during September was 10.1°C, which hit right on the mark to the expected average. The same can be said for the amount of precipitation during September, as Fort St. John received a total of 43 mm compared to the average of 45 mm.As for what to expect for the month of October, Lindquist says the outlook is showing uncertainty and is fluctuating so much that it is hard to determine if it will be above or below the seasonal average.This weekend, Environment Canada is calling for mostly sunny with temperatures hovering around 13°C.last_img read more

first_imgGeneva: Climate change may threaten the survival of of marine mammals such as dolphins, and have more far-reaching consequences for their conservation than previously thought, according to a study. In early 2011, a heatwave caused the water temperatures to rise to more than four degrees above the annual average, said researchers from the University of Zurich (UZH) in Switzerland. The extended period caused a substantial loss of seagrass, which drives the Shark Bay ecosystem, a UNESCO world heritage site in Western Australia. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USResearchers from UZH have now investigated how this environmental damage has affected survival and reproduction of dolphins. They used long-term data on hundreds of animals collected over a ten-year period from 2007 to 2017. Their analyses revealed that the dolphins’ survival rate had fallen by 12 per cent following the heatwave of 2011. Moreover, female dolphins were giving birth to fewer calves — a phenomenon that lasted at least until 2017, researchers said. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls”The extent of the negative influence of the heatwave surprised us,” said Sonja Wild, a former PhD candidate at the University of Leeds in the UK. “It is particularly unusual that the reproductive success of females appears to have not returned to normal levels, even after six years,” Wild said in a statement. There are several possible explanations for this phenomenon, for instance neglect of calves, increased newborn mortality, delayed sexual maturity or a combination thereof, but researchers have not yet been able to investigate them in detail. Interestingly, the heatwave did not have the same effect on all dolphin groups, researchers said. Dolphins that use sponges as tools — a socially learned foraging technique that helps dolphins to locate food in deep water — were not as badly affected as those that do not use this technique. “Nevertheless, our work raises concerns that such sudden events might have quite negative long-term effects even in groups of marine mammals that are known to adapt usually well to novel environmental conditions,” said Wild. The study shows for the first time that marine heatwaves not only affect organisms at lower levels of the food chain, but also might have considerable long-term consequences for the animals at the top, such as dolphins. “Marine heatwaves are likely to occur more frequently in the future due to climate change,” said study leader Michael Krutzen, professor at the Department of Anthropology at UZH. “This is worrying not only for the long-term prospects of marine mammal populations, but also for the entire oceanic ecosystems,” Krutzen said.last_img read more

first_imgLiving with a smoker after age 20 is associated with a 15 per cent greater risk of developing high blood pressure, warn researchers, adding that avoiding smoky environments can reduce the risk of hypertension. Passive smoking at home or work was linked with a 13 per cent increased risk of hypertension. Exposure to passive smoking for 10 years or more was related to a 17 per cent increased risk of hypertension and men and women were equally affected, said the researchers at “EuroHeartCare 2019″, a scientific congress of the European Society of Cardiology, in Milan, Italy on Friday. Also Read – The Puja carnival”Avoid exposure to secondhand smoke regardless of whether the smoker is still in the room,” said study author Professor Byung Jin Kim from Sungkyunkwan University, Seoul, Korea. “Our study in non-smokers shows that the risk of high blood pressure (hypertension) is higher with longer duration of passive smoking – but even the lowest amounts are dangerous,” Kim added. This is the first large study to assess the association between secondhand smoke and hypertension in never-smokers verified by urinary levels of cotinine, the principal metabolite of nicotine. Also Read – Wave City brings special offers this NavratraIt included 131,739 never-smokers, one-third men, and an average age of 35 years. Participants with hypertension were significantly more likely to be exposed to secondhand smoke at home or work (27.9 per cent) than those with normal blood pressure (22.6 per cent). Hypertension was significantly more common in people exposed to passive smoke at home or work (7.2 per cent) compared to no exposure (5.5 per cent). “The results suggest that it is necessary to keep completely away from secondhand smoke, not just reduce exposure, to protect against hypertension,” said Professor Kim.last_img read more
