Strawberry Pot Project Update

Image
A while ago I decided to try growing strawberries in pots. Today I decided to photograph the progress so far with this project

My strawberry plant is already producing some fruit in the round plastic plant pot with saucer from RJE Distributors (they supply nurseries and gardening shops).

About two years ago I bought a pot of strawberry plants from Goodies4Gardens. Since then the strawberry patch has grown and spread out over a whole section of our little backyard garden. Those strawberry plants have been branching out like crazy. My wife, Maggie, said we must get some pots for the young plants.

Growing our own strawberries have been so pleasant because we get fresh strawberries from our garden and we eat them just after picking them - you don't get fresher than that. The strawberry plants in the back yard are still producing fruit that we enjoy on a regular basis.

So, my "strawberry plant in a pot" project is doing well. The latest photograph is a testimony to that. All I m…

Each year the flu virus changes. In the winter of 2018, there was an intense outbreak of influenza in the northern hemisphere, evidently the deadliest in a number of decades, resulting in as much as 80 000 deaths (according to the US Centers for Disease Control & Prevention).
Complications related to flu can be very serious often weakening heart conditions. They can also lead to pneumonia and be life-threatening. So there are a few suggestions that will help keep you safer and healthier during this winter.
Eat Healthier Eat fruit and vegetables containing Vitamin C and Zinc. Make sure that you regularly include citrus fruit (like oranges), peppers and broccoli for your Vitamin C i…

Workmaster always has something for their clients. This time they are introducing a special Conti Suit that is unique. It’s called a Come n Go Conti Suit. The reason for this is that when viewed from the front you will see a highly visible green upper half, but when you view from behind the upper half is hi-viz orange. This has a security aspect to the suit because you can see what’s happening at a distance and you will know who is facing you and who is standing with their backs to you. I think this is a handy workwear item.

This unique feature could be of benefit if you had two departments and you outfitted one department in normal Conti Suits and the other department in Come n Go Conti Suits. Then you would be able to distinguish between the two immediately.

Besides these differences, it’s vital to protect your workforce with high visibility workwear. It gives them the perception of wearing a uniform and is highly noticeable in the dark. It’s also good for avoiding accidents.

School Photography - Gauteng

Image
School photographs get taken every year of pupils in their school uniforms to create a lasting memory. The high performers usually line up with their collection of certificates, cups, and medals. It is a proud moment for them. Some of the pupils do so well academically and in sports that there's sometimes hardly any room for all their awards.

Other pupils, without the accolades, also proudly pose for their school pictures to be taken. They know that their parents want to see them at their best in their uniforms. The photos will be shown to grandparents, family, and friends.

For the photographer, it is a very busy occasion. The lighting has to be just right and an appropriate backdrop has to be set up. Not all the children are always in the mood for photographs so the school photographer has to get them to smile. Then there's a shirt to be tucked in or a tie to be straightened - which could spoil the photo. Or their hair isn't combed nicely. So attention to detail is impor…

Spades - Gardening Hardware (RJE Distributors)

Image
A spade is one of the main tools used for digging holes in the garden. Without a decent spade, I normally battle. This spade from RJE Distributors has been added recently to my arsenal of tools I will be using to get my garden looking the way I want it.
During the winter months, we will be making some changes to our garden to make it more organized and looking much better. So far we have successfully grown granadillas, fig trees, and avocado trees in our front yard. However, there are patches of sand where the grass has refused to grow and in other places, wild grass has taken over where there once was grass. I suppose I am to blame because I have been too busy with work.
We plan to turn things around so that we can enjoy our garden again. The recent drought also played a major part in destroying much of its former glory. A fresh start can change that. So we are already removing unwanted weeds and wild grass. In the meantime, we have the trees and granadillas and some succulents that…
