re: Indian Hawthorn alternative? - shell01
Walter's Viburnum (Viburnum obovatum). It's native to much of the Southeast, grows in full sun to part shade. Very low maintenance. White flowers in the spring/early summer, and we haven't had any problems with pest or disease. ...

re: Am I expecting too much from my lab puppy? - shell01
SO much bad advice posted here. First off, NO running the dog at this age. Way too young. Let him play at his own pace, but no structured running until fully developed which is 1yr+ Training wise... when you say "with rewards", does he know the reward is there? Are you broadcasting that? Sh...

re: Anyone here have a rottweiler? - shell01
[quote]Tbh I thought anything with decent papers was 1500-2k[/quote] It's not "papers" that drive the price, a responsible breeder will not only breed registered dogs that meet the breed standard, they also conduct extensive health testing. Insist on it. Rottweilers should have hip and elbow ...

re: Frightening cave diving documentary - shell01
The video in the OP is old school British sump diving. Not representative of all cave diving, more of a specialized subset. Here in FL we have some small mucky stuff, but also many huge cavernous spaces with white walls and crystal clear water. And in some places, like Mexico, Belize, and the Bah...

re: 4 Year Old Mutt Recently Getting Aggressive - shell01
You're going to make this worse. Multiple people have suggested getting the dog checked out by a vet (need to check bloodwork including thyroid levels and look for any signs of pain.) And yet you jump to shock collar. SMH From the sounds of it your dog is not aggressive, she is fearful and reac...

re: 4 Year Old Mutt Recently Getting Aggressive - shell01
A thorough vet check is in order. Could be hormonal or metabolic, she could be in pain. Just manage the situation (keep her away from others) until you can determine whether this is medical or strictly behavioral. ...

re: Pecan wood - shell01
[quote]Still I think there would be a niche market for such lumber, somewhat certifiably sustainable in available quantities due to it being destroyed anyway. A lot of folks might be willing to pay substantially more for such lumber.[/quote] Indeed there is. Got our floors from [link=(https://ww...

re: Need advice on a herbicide for killing vines and larger plants - shell01
I finally decided to wage war on poison ivy this year and have been successful with just RoundUp. I wanted a very targeted application and did not want any residual killing or root uptake so steered clear of the other herbicides. At first I wasn't sure if it was working but I just needed some ...

re: I have Brown hot water - shell01
[quote]I have 2 water heaters. Can I convert to 1 big tankless?[/quote] Yes, but whether it's a good idea or not depends on your plumbing set up and just how much hot water you may need at one time. Our house was originally plumbed for two water heaters, one upstairs and one downstairs. We ...

re: other than sitting outside with a pellet gun, any way to get rid of blackbirds? - shell01
Depending on what you are calling a "blackbird", there's a really good chance it is a protected species under the migratory bird act. Your "outdoor cat" on the other hand is an invasive species that kills a ridiculous amount of native wildlife. Bring the cats inside and leave the birds alone. ...

re: Lab puppies - shell01
Just to add, expected health tests in a lab are listed [link=(https://thelabradorclub.com/health-training/health-issues/recommended-health-clearances/)]here[/link] I simply will not pay for a dog (regardless of breed) that doesn't come from health tested parentage. Of course you might want hunt ...

Why can't you put it back? If the nest is in bad shape sometimes you can rug a support, like a yogurt cup or basket or something and put the nest in it. Baby has no chance at that age outside of the nest....

re: Building a home with treated wood instead of untreated wood - shell01
Boracare with Moldcare is the way to go. It's not that expensive (relatively speaking), or hard to use. We DIY'd it while our house was opened to the studs for renovations. ...
