      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.

To complete this How-To you will need: A sunny garden spot A wire mesh fence Seeds or seedlings Flowers A soil test A sunny garden spot A wire mesh fence Seeds or seedlings Flowers A soil test Step 1: Decide on a garden type Decide between a raised-bed garden or an in-ground one. Raised beds, which consist of purchased topsoil that sits within a wooden frame, are ideal if your soil is stony or sandy. The main advantage of an in-ground garden is that it needs less watering. Tip: For an in-ground garden, test your soil to find out what nutrients it needs. Garden centers sell do-it-yourself kits, or you can arrange a test through the Cooperative Extension System, a national agricultural network. Find a nearby office on the USDA web site. Step 2: Pick a good spot Pick a spot that gets a lot of sun and isn’t obscured by tree or hedge shade. Step 3: Prep the land Prepare the land by building your raised bed or clearing and tilling a patch of land to a depth of about one foot. A 10 foot by 10 foot parcel is a good size for a beginner
