    Is it possible to adjust the power of blowing/suction on a garden tool ?

    Sunday, July 31st, 2011

    I have a combo tool. It blows the dirt, leaves etc. to create a pile with certain attachment. With a different attachments it sucks the pile of dry leaves into the bag attached that could be emptied in a waste can. Lately, it blows so hard (even after turtle/hare adjustment), that it really blows out mulch(naturally hardened over 18 months) from the flowerbed along with the dry leaves. On the other hand, its suction has gotten so weak, that the nozzle has to be held steady within an inch of the surface (say driveway, steps), to pickup the dry leaves.
    I would like to increase the suction power, so I can walk around sweeping the area. At the same time, I would like to reduce the blowing power, so I can slowly move the dry leaves in a nice pile in a corner.
    Thanks in advance.

      Japanese house # 9

      Sunday, July 31st, 2011

      Yard work and the installation of a Japanese door intercom or door phone as they say. 20000 yen for the unit and its got a camera and night lights with a big color screen inside. 8000 yen more for the wire and stuff to install it. I cleared the overgrown front yard and then dug a ditch and ran the cables for the camera. I had my first experience working with Japanese PVC conduit and it was a breeze. These things are awesome! It will save a snapshot of the person who rang the doorbell when you are not home and it has led lights to illuminate the person at night. It has an adjustable camera and it can be integrated with your home phone and smoke detectors etc. With some units you can get an extra handset like a phone but it has a screen on it so you can carry it with you around the house and not miss a delivery or friend stopping by.

          Indoor garden help/Pacific Northwest in January?

          Saturday, July 30th, 2011

          I would like to start an indoor container garden in my apartment and I need some assistance. I live in Oregon and we don’t get much sun light in winter months. I would put the plants in front of the window obviously, and my apartment is about 62f degrees.

          Would vegetables grow under these conditions?

          Listed below are the types of veggies I want to grow from seeds. Any help with the size of container, or anything at all would be a great help. Ive never gardened anything before, so consider you are talking to an idiot.

          cherry tomatoes
          leaf lettuce
          radishes
          beans
          oregano

          Any other easy to grow vegetable options or any other tips at all would be awesome. Thank you.

              How many out there consider a firearm a garden tool like a rake or shovel?

              Saturday, July 30th, 2011

              I just nailed two of the cutest little bunnies with an old clap-trap single shot 22 that was in my potting shed when I bought the place. They should be tasty considering they are flavored with a whole row of my cabbage.
              Geeze, people what did you think I was doing, shooting neighborhood kids out of my apple trees?
              I seem to have found a mole in my garden. Cute in a hedgehog sort of way. I find them good for the yard and garden and amazing to watch tunnel at full throttle. I also find it therapeutic to kick and stomp down the fresh soil with bare feet. Welcome Moley – RScott
              Spectre – The term "gun" works for me and I’m ‘scary’ good with them rifled or not. Yes, I enjoy hunting it’s challenging, relaxing, healthy and even FUN but it does involve killing. I’m a rancher and I am amazed that 50% of kids in school think we grow hamburger in Styrofoam trays sitting on diapers covered in a Saran Wrap uterus. I am am pro hand gun laws and have my concealed weapons permit, it’s who I am. RScott
              Sheila G – sorry. RScott

                  What is that garden tool called that helps loosens the soil?

                  Friday, July 29th, 2011

                  It has for big spikes on the bottom in a circle and a handle you grab with both hands. You punch the stakes into the ground and rotate to loosen the soil? Not sure if it’s considered a tiller or a cultivator or something else?
