Sunday, October 04, 2015, 10:03:59 PM- Container Gardening Basics
Ingredients for Success
Planning: Plan your garden out on paper before you buy anything. Decide how much
space you have, what size containers you will use, and what kind and how many plants
will fit. Make a list of what you need before you shop. Be sure the plants you choose are
suitable to grow in containers.
Sun: Most fruit and vegetable plants need 6 or more hours of sun each day to grow. If
you have space where you want a container garden, make sure it gets enough sun.
Soil: Only good soil will make good plants. When container gardening, choose a good
bagged potting soil. Do not use soil you dig up from your back yard; it does not work
well for growing fruits and vegetables. Avoid bagged soils labeled “planting mix”, “soil
conditioner”, “compost” or “manure”. These will not be well balanced for your container
Water: All plants need water. Containers can dry out quickly, especially in the summer
months. To see if your plant needs water, put a finger in the soil. If the top inch of soil
feels dry, the plant needs water. Check your plants every day. Make sure your containers
have drainage holes in the bottom, so plants do not get too much water. Certain drip
systems and water conserving containers can be purchased to better ensure consistent
watering. However, these items can be costly.
Fertilizer: Plants in containers can use up the nutrients in the soil quickly. Use an
organic fertilizer once a month to ensure plants have what they need. Follow the package
directions closely when applying fertilizers. A fertilizer labeled for vegetables gardens will
work well.

Friday, October 02, 2015, 6:53:07 PM- The Nepalese-American Death Metal Rocker Who Discovered Water on Mars
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey issued a special recognition honoring Ojha, a Nepalese-American immigrant who first came to Arizona with his parents at age 15. His father started as a graduate student at the University of Arizona and is now a researcher there.

Nepalis, Nepalese Americans, Arizonans, and death metal rockers are all rushing to congratulate and claim young Lujendra "Luju" Ojha, the 25-year-old graduate student who was part of the team that helped confirm the existence of liquid flowing water on Mars, as announced by NASA this week.

"Certainly it's a great achievement for me and for the whole team as well," Ojha told NBC News. "I am receiving great messages, which is encouraging me a lot. I am really feeling grateful."

The Diary Of A 22 Year Old

In February of 2015, I was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic breast cancer. I had just turned 22 years old. Attending college, working, and engaged to my high school sweetheart. The cancer spread to my lymph nodes, chest bones, and hip bone.

Losing my hair was one of the hardest things for me. Just like any other young woman, my hair has become my identity. I hid behind my hair. How my hair was that day, was how I felt that day. I felt like I completely lost myself when I lost my hair.

I had to learn that I am not my hair.. I am not all my scars.. I am beautiful, with or without these things!

June 10th was my last session. My hair began growing. I went back to college and work. I felt my life pulling back together.

September 8th I had a lumpectomy and several lymph nodes removed. A week after the surgery, I was told that the cancer was not gone, and that I had to go back onto chemotherapy. I felt like all that I worked so hard for, was gone..

October 1st will be my first day back on chemotherapy. Go figure, for breast cancer awareness month! I've come to realize struggles make us stronger. I have to stick through the fight. When life knocks me down, I have to get back up and fight back. I may have cancer, but cancer doesn't have me.
