Question of The Day June 5 2009
Due to the curvature of Earth, assuming a flat plain (such as the ocean), can you tell me the distance to what we see as the horizon?
The distance depends on the height of your eyes. Measure the distance to eye level in feet, multiply by three, divide by two, and take the square root of the answer. The result is the number of miles to the horizon. For example, if your eyes are about six feet above the ground or water level of a flat plain, the horizon is almost three miles away. If your eyes were exactly at ground or water level, there would be no distance at all; the horizon would be directly in front of you.
Gardening Question of the Day June 5 2009
What is leaf mold and how is it best used?
Leaf mold is a special kind of compost that is solely made up of decomposed leaves. It decomposes through a fungus, rather than the bacteria that is responsible for the development of regular compost. Leaf mold composting creates a very nutrient and mineral rich addition to your soil and is great for mixing in with your potting soil to improve fertility, or to use as a top dressing on planting beds. Made into a tea or a foliar spray, it can help develop robust plants. It can take quite a while to create a large supply of leaf mold, from 9 months to 3 years depending upon moisture conditions. Just pile up the leaves and leave them alone. Most folks use a wire mesh holding bin.
