This hack was used to repair my watering can better than new.

Using the green plastic lid of an orange juice screw on bottle top inset perfectly into the cup of the broken spout.

Then just a matter of drilling holes in the lid and using an exterior deck screw to fix everything together.

Works better than new!

I've attached a picture here:

So happy right now, moved the juvenile chickens into their forever home! join me on this epic journey, it's a long video but I feel like it's worth watching all the way through in one sitting. Video shot over the course of the last 3 months.

Messing with CAD software, been a long while since my last try drafting and so rather than worry about accuracy in model proportions abstract things like the difference between a 2x4 or a 4x4. As such had this work been turned into my hand drawn drafting teacher inbox, he would have failed it. He was very strict.

Needless to say the act of building this model got the process going for me, it's a rough draft designed on a free phone app, saved as a dwg file. Not so bad! Building a chicken coop.

Most #Plants Depend On A #Fungi-#Bacteria Relationship We've Been Overlooking

Agricultural scientists may have overlooked a #symbiotic relationship essential to the success of #food production. Its discovery may bring potential to supercharge it to enhance #crop growth, replacing artificial #fertilizers that come with a host of undesirable consequences.

I asked somebody in Colorado what AG Zone they were in, they didn't know so I did a search, I guess I don't know either, I think the best answer is, it depends...

A long time ago I studied for and took the CompTIA A+ certification because I thought I wanted to repair computer hardware. I had it on my resume but I don't think the process got me any jobs. That same company lobbies against citizens rights to repair any device. I stand against this.

Please help us pass the direct ballot initiative in Massachusetts. It's going to cost a lot of money but it will prevent lobbiests from stealing the vote or scaring the elected officials.

How to start leek seeds from saved seed.

I use mature leeks in soups and stir fries and any recipe which calls for onion. Leaks have a mild onion flavor and are hardy to frost.

The germination process starts the same as onions. Each tiny black seed will become a large leek if it survives.

Give it a try, all you need is a sunny south facing window and some heat (place on top boiler, refrigerator, or heat pad until seedlings emerge)
