re: Is a hammer drill necessary for drilling into brick? - jyoung1
If you're just drilling like 5 holes or less, then a regular drill will be fine with a masonry bit. Drilled 3 holes to hang up flag and took probably 20 seconds per hole....

re: Smart light switches- color - jyoung1
[quote]home assistant[/quote] Using z-wave devices definitely sounds more reliable. I'm intrigued by Home Assistant, as it sounds like the cheapest option. I have an old arduino from college, but I'm sure it would be better to just get a raspberry pi. Also the smartthings hub only cost $70 wh...

re: Biggest sigh of relief: Chase TD vs Bama, or 1st Chase TD vs Clemson - jyoung1
[quote]It was actually the Chase catch down the far sideline vs Bama prior to the TD catch. When Burrow fit it in that window and Chase just took it out of bounds with what looked like minimal effort, I knew Bama was in for a long day. [/quote] The 2 plays immediately following that was a firs...

So has anyone made spaghetti sauce with your tomatoes? I had too much to eat fresh, so i peeled a bunch and crushed them with my hands. But it comes out to be really watery, doesn’t seem like it’ll be good to make sauce out of. Maybe once it cooks down, or if i add canned paste to it. ...

re: Cucumber health question - jyoung1
I was wondering same thing about my cucumbers today. Hard to tell from pic but some of the newer leaves are more yellow than the rest. I think it might be a combination of slightly overwatering and they needed to be fed. My tomatoes in containers were needing water everyday so the cucumbers in b...

re: 2020 Garden Thread - jyoung1
Also, saw something interesting in one of my “wild” tomato plants that sprouted up around my garden area presumably from last fall’s fallen fruit. I know it’s a deficiency of some sort (the leaf yellowing in new growth around base of leaf), and I googled and I’m guessing it is nitrogen or an ir...

Trying to get familiar with plant diseases. Is this blight? Most of the pics i googled showed big brown/dying spots. But on my leaves the edges are browning only, and then small spots are showing in middle of leaf. Not a problem or anything yet, just curious. [img]https://i.postimg.cc/gkf...
