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.

FULL TEXT Vertical Gardening Part 1 As urban gardeners, we have a limited amount of space to grow our vegetables and flowers. What I have done is I have employed verticle gardening. Right here as you can see, I have a variety of different cucumber plants. Now, a cucumber is vining crop, which means that with vertical support like this one, you can train it to grow up and the fruit, Take a look right here, can grow perfectly fine on the vine. Different types of crops that work well in a vertical garden are watermelon and pumpkin. Let us go take a look. Here, as you can see, my pumpkin plants are thriving. Pumpkin plants are also vining crops. Now, in the country, where you have a lot of space, you can just let this grow along the ground, but here in a city environment, we do not have all that space. So, what I have done here is, I put together a dog kennel. This is actually really nifty. It is exactly 4 x 4 so it fits perfectly in your raise beds. And, these vines just slough on themselves eventually. You do not have to continuously train them. Okay, so you can go vining crops on vertical supports, but there are other types of plants that also need support like my heirloom tomatoes here, this are Tiffin Mennonite tomatoes, and it grows to be a huge
