Fruit Trees In Pots

Image
We decided three years ago that we wanted a fig tree in our yard and I bought one for my wife. This year we picked the first decent figs at the beginning of February and they were heavenly. The tree came in a pot from Goodies4Gardens, originally supplied by RJE Distributors. I didn’t know it at the time because I only met the people from RJE Distributors recently and discovered that they are the suppliers of garden pots and other hardware to Goodies4Gardens.

Last Sunday we visited Goodies again to find out whether they had any more fruit trees in the nursery section. The man who runs the nursery took us to the trees they had and showed us grape vines, mangoes, peaches, apricots, and pomegranate trees. That was a big surprise because we always wanted to have those in our garden as well.

It only occurred to me afterward that they also grew in pots so that they were portable. I find this encouraging because one could transfer them into larger pots at home if you didn’t have space in you…

Garden Pots And Hardware

My wife, Maggie, has a natural gift for growing plants. She manages to grow just about anything. I’m not so fortunate. For some reason, I struggle. A while ago I decided to grow tomatoes in pots and they started out okay but died after some time making me disappointed.

I became interested in growing vegetables in pots when I came across amazing pins on Pinterest on the subject. Avid gardeners usually blog about their hobby or pastime and then promote them on Pinterest for the world to see. I’m looking at one of these articles as I’m typing and there’s a photo of a big plastic pot with about twenty carrots growing in it. The photo also shows the grower’s hand holding ten healthy looking carrots next to the plastic flower pot. The article reads, “Container Gardening for Vegetables.”

It would have been wiser if I did some reading on the subject of growing my plants in containers like plastic pots before I started. Already, as I’m reading the article, I can see where things went wrong fo…

Pool Nets And Covers - Water Safety

Image
Whenever we hear of people drowning in swimming pools we feel devastated for those affected by it, especially when it’s a child. I recently read a story on Facebook about such a tragic drowning related by a father. They were just distracted for a moment. Then his son asked where his younger brother was and it ended up with the horror of finding him drowned in the swimming pool. I can’t even begin to imagine how that family felt after that tragic accident. Something like that probably fills them with regret for the rest of their lives. If only!

Water safety is of utmost importance. This is a profound statement that should never be taken lightly.

Global Nets & Covers manufacture and install pool covers that protect kids that can't swim and offer considerable savings to you in terms of running costs and pool maintenance. They install pool covers in many shapes and sizes to clients' satisfaction.

There is a video where a child manages to climb on the fence surrounding the pool…

The Anatomy of a Safety Shoe

Image
The Anatomy of a Safety Shoe Safety shoes are in a league of their own. Their primary purpose is to allow you to be comfortable while being productive and protected at the same time.

When I look at the magnificent range of protective footwear in the BOVA catalogue on the Workmaster website I can get a pretty good picture of how complex these shoes are and how packed they are with features that benefit the wearer.
