root vegetables in containers

Gardening is a cheap, fun, and rewarding hobby, but it can be daunting to get started. If you need more space or are still trying to figure out where to start, container gardening is a great option.

It allows you to get your hands dirty and grow various vegetables on your patio or balcony. Here are seven root vegetables that are perfect for growing in containers.

 

1. Beets

root vegetables you can grow in containers - beets

Beets are a type of root vegetable that grows well in containers. They grow best in full sun but will do well in partial shade. Beets need well-drained soil and should be watered regularly. One way to tell if your beets need water is to check the leaves.

If they’re wilting, it’s time to water your plants. When harvesting beets, leave at least two inches of the stem attached to the beetroot. This will help the plant continue to grow.

 

2. Radishes

Radishes are fast-growing root vegetables that are perfect for container gardens. They can even be grown in pots as small as six inches across. Radishes prefer full sun but will also do well in partial shade. Radishes need loose, well-drained soil and should be watered regularly—about 1-2 inches per week.

When harvesting radishes, pull them up by the greens rather than tugging on the roots so you don’t damage the plant. Radishes are best harvested when they’re about two inches in diameter, but they can be left to grow larger if you want milder-tasting radishes.

 

3. Turnips

Turnips are another type of root vegetable that grows well in containers gardeners often overlook turnips since they’re so easy to find in grocery stores.

However, freshly harvested turnips have a much sweeter flavor than store-bought ones that have been sitting around for weeks. They also happen to be very easy to grow. Turnips prefer full sun but will also tolerate partial shade. They need loose, well-drained soil and should be watered regularly.

When harvesting, turnips cut the greens off at the base of the plant leaving about two inches of stem attached.

To avoid damaging the root, it’s best to harvest turnips with a small gardening fork. You can eat turnips as soon as they’re big enough to fit in the palm of your hand, but they’ll taste sweeter if you wait until they’re three or four inches in diameter.

 

4. Carrots

Carrots are another root vegetable that’s perfect for container gardening. They do well in full sun but will also do well in partial shade. Carrots need loose, well-drained soil and should be watered regularly.

When harvesting carrots, pull them up by the greens rather than tugging on the roots. This will help prevent damage to the plant. You can harvest carrots as soon as they’re big enough to eat—usually about two inches in diameter. However, if you wait until they’re larger, they’ll be even sweeter.

 

5. Rutabagas

Rutabagas look like large turnips and belong to the same family of plants. They have a slightly bitter taste and are often used in cooked dishes rather than eaten raw. Rutabagas prefer full sun but will also tolerate partial shade. They need loose, well-drained soil and should be watered regularly.

When harvesting rutabagas, cut the greens off at the base of the plant, similar to how you would harvest turnips. However, rutabagas are much larger than turnips, so you’ll need a sharp knife rather than a gardening fork. Rutabagas can range in size from one pound to eight pounds. But for the best flavor, try to harvest them when they’re between two and three pounds.

 

Conclusion

These seven vegetables are just a few of the many types of root vegetables that can be grown in containers. With proper care and attention, most root vegetables will thrive. In addition to turnips, carrots, and radishes, consider adding potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, or garlic to your container garden. Happy planting.

New to Electric Vehicles? Read This First.

electric vehicles - the basics

Electric vehicles have gained popularity over recent years as the technology behind them converges to create an ever-improving riding experience. The costs have also come down significantly.

EVs have numerous benefits – they’re better for the environment, quieter, require minimal maintenance compared to gas-powered vehicles, and save you money in the long run. They protect you against the see-sawing gas prices.

However, before you switch to an EV, consider a few factors first. We’ll cover three key issues: range anxiety, charging infrastructure, upfront costs, and what’s being done to address these issues.

 

Range Anxiety

electric vehicle road trip

One of the biggest concerns about EVs is “range anxiety”—the fear that your car will run out of juice before you reach your destination. It’s a valid concern—after all, EVs can’t just stop at a gas station to refuel.

But you can do a few things to ease your range anxiety on a road trip with an EV or for daily commutes. First, research and buy an EV with a range that meets your needs. There are now EVs on the market that can go over 200 miles on a single charge, so you’re sure to find one that fits your lifestyle.

Second, plan your trips and map out charging stations along your route. And finally, remember that you can always charge your EV at home overnight if needed.

According to studies by the US Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Agency, the average EV can travel between 70 and 100 miles on a single charge. However, newer EVs have much higher ranges. For example, the Tesla Model S can travel up to 373 miles on a single charge, while the Chevy Bolt can go up to 259 miles. The Mercedes EQS has one of the longest ranges at 485 miles.

Of course, range varies depending on weather conditions, terrain, speed, and whether or not you’re using energy-saving features like regenerative braking.

But even in real-world driving conditions, most people will find that an EV will easily get them through their daily commute without any problems. And if you need to travel further than your EV’s range allows, most public charging stations are within easy reach of major highways.

 

Charging Infrastructure

Another important consideration when buying an EV is the charging infrastructure—or lack thereof—in your area. If you live in a major city, chances are there are plenty of public charging stations available.

But, if you live in a rural area, you may need to install a charger at home. The good news is that many EVs have home chargers included, and installing a home charger is often as easy as calling an electrician.

Furthermore, electric vehicle charging systems have developed significantly over the recent past.

Some of the latest developments in EV charging include:

 

  1. More Public Charging Stations Than Ever Before

According to a report from the US Department of Energy, more than 25,000 public charging stations were in the United States by March 2018. The number has risen to more than 140,000 in 2022.

That number will only grow in the coming years as more people purchase electric cars. And that’s good news for everyone, whether you own an electric vehicle or not!

 

  1. Faster Charging Times

One of the biggest complaints about early electric cars was that they took forever to charge. Thankfully, that’s no longer the case! With the latest generation of electric vehicles, you can expect anywhere from 100-200 miles of range after just 30 minutes of charging. And if you have access to a fast charger, some cars can even get up to 80% charged in under 30 minutes.

 

  1. More Charging Options

In addition to traditional Level 2 chargers (the kind you might find at your local grocery store), there are now several other options available for people who want to charge their car while on the go.

Level 3 DC fast chargers are becoming increasingly common, and there are even a few Level 4 chargers out there (though they’re still pretty rare).

But perhaps the most exciting development is solar-powered charging stations! These stations use solar panels to generate electricity, which is then used to charge electric cars. This is a great way to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and benefit the environment!

Upfront Costs

electric vehicle costs

The upfront cost of an EV can be significantly higher than the cost of a traditional gasoline car. However, there are several ways to offset this cost. First, many governments offer incentives for purchasing EVs, so check for any available rebates or tax credits in your area.

Second, EVs are cheaper to operate than gasoline cars—you’ll never have to pay for gas again! And finally, many employers offer workplace charging programs that can help offset the cost of owning and operating an electric vehicle.

 

How Much Do Electric Cars Cost?

According to Kelley Blue Book, the average price of a new EV in the US is just over $66,000. That’s slightly higher than the average price of a new car, which is just over $50,000.

However, remember that EVs typically have much lower running costs than petrol or diesel cars, so that they can save you money in the long run. For example, charging an EV at home costs around $2 per 100 miles, while driving the same distance in a petrol car would cost around $12 (based on current fuel prices).

 

Are Electric Car Prices Falling?

Yes, electric car prices are falling thanks to advances in battery technology and increased production scale. In fact, prices have fallen more than 35% since 2010, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. And they’re expected to continue falling over the next few years. Bloomberg New Energy Finance predicts that the average price of an EV will fall below $40,000 by 2023.

 

What’s Driving the Price falls?

One of the main factors driving down electric car prices is the falling cost of batteries. Battery costs have fallen by 89% since 2010, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. This is due to a combination of improvements in manufacturing efficiency and an increase in global production scale.

Conclusion:

Electric vehicles are becoming popular and practical—and for a good reason! They’re better for the environment than traditional gasoline cars, cheaper to operate in the long run, and come with many other great benefits.

But before you buy an EV, there are a few things you need to consider first, like range anxiety, charging infrastructure, and upfront costs. By doing your research and planning, you can confidently switch to an electric vehicle!

zero-waste thanksgiving

The holidays are a time for family, friends, and feasting. However, all that feasting comes with a lot of waste. The National Resources Defense Council estimates that Americans throw away 25% more trash during the week of Thanksgiving than at any other time of year.

However, you can make it different this year! With some planning, you can have a zero-waste Thanksgiving that is just as festive as any other. Here’s how:

 

  1. Plan ahead by making a list of what you’ll need and where you can get it

Thanksgiving is all about the food, so the first step to having a zero-waste feast is to plan your menu and make a shopping list accordingly.

When possible, buy locally-sourced and organic items to reduce your carbon footprint. You can also look for items in bulk to cut down on packaging waste. And remember to use reusable bags!

 

  1. Ditch disposables

reject single use plastic

From paper plates and plastic cups to single-use silverware and napkins, disposables are one of the biggest culprits for holiday waste. Invest in some reusable dishware and silverware that you can use year after year, and make sure to wash and reuse them instead of throwing them away.

You can also opt for cloth napkins—they’ll add a touch of style and sophistication to your dinner table while helping reduce waste.

 

  1. Make your own décor

Fall is a beautiful time of year, so take advantage of all the natural décor available outside. Gather leaves, branches, acorns, and pinecones to create centerpieces and other décor for your home—you’ll save money and help the environment simultaneously.

If you have young kids, put them to work gathering leaves and other natural items for craft projects like homemade wreaths or garlands.

 

  1. Get creative with your leftovers

One of the best things about Thanksgiving is the leftovers. But instead of letting them go bad in the fridge, get creative with how you use them! There are endless possibilities for turkey sandwiches, casseroles, soups, and more.

While some leftovers are best enjoyed cold, you can transform others into new and delicious dishes straight from the fridge.

For example, you can use leftover turkey to make a hearty soup or stew, while mashed potatoes can be repurposed into potato cakes or pancakes. Cranberry sauce can be mixed into oatmeal or yogurt or used as a topping for pancakes or waffles.

 

  1. Compost your food waste

composting

Composting is an excellent way to reduce food waste, and it’s surprisingly easy to do at home. You can either start your compost bin or sign up for a municipal composting program (if available).

Once you’ve collected all your food scraps, add them to your compost bin or drop them off at the designated location—and voila!—you’ve turned food waste into valuable nutrients for plants and gardens.

 

  1. Recycle everything else.

Forget about good old-fashioned recycling! Most communities offer recycling services for items like glass jars, aluminum cans, plastic containers, and cardboard boxes.

So before you toss something in the trash this Thanksgiving, make sure you can’t recycle it first.

 

Conclusion:

Thanksgiving is one of the most anticipated holidays of the year—and rightfully so! It’s a time for family, friends, and feasting on delicious food. However, all that feasting often generates a lot of waste.

However, you can do it differently this year! With some planning, you can have a zero-waste Thanksgiving that is just as festive (and delicious) as any other kind of holiday gathering. So try out these tips and enjoy your sustainable feast!

The Canadian Well: An Environmentally-Friendly Way to Provide Heating and Cooling

1
geothermal heat

In recent years, there has been an increased focus on finding environmentally-friendly ways to heat and cool our homes. One such method is the Canadian well, which is a type of geothermal heating and cooling system.

In this article, we discuss what a Canadian well is and why it is an environmentally-friendly way to provide heating and cooling.

 

What is a Canadian Well?

A Canadian well is a type of geothermal heating and cooling system. It works by circulating water through a buried loop of pipe in order to transfer heat from the ground into the home in winter, and from the home into the ground in summer.

In Canada, most of the country has a bedrock of igneous rock which is heated by the Earth’s hot interior. This heat is transferred to the surface through conduction. The Canadian well can take advantage of this process to generate heat for homes and businesses.

By drilling a deep hole into the ground, water can be circulated through the well and used to transfer heat from the bedrock to the surface. This water can then be used to heat buildings or can be used to generate electricity. Canadian wells can provide a sustainable and renewable source of energy that can help to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.

This process is much more efficient than traditional methods of heating and cooling, such as furnaces and air conditioners, which use large amounts of energy to generate heat or cool air.

Why is a Canadian Well Environmentally-Friendly?

There are two main reasons why Canadian wells are environmentally-friendly.

First, they require very little electricity to operate. In fact, the only electricity required is to circulate the water through the buried loop of pipe.

Second, Canadian wells do not release any greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. This is in contrast to traditional methods of heating and cooling, which often rely on fossil fuels such as natural gas or oil. As a result, Canadian wells can help reduce your carbon footprint.

 

Conclusion

Canadian wells are a type of geothermal heating and cooling system that is becoming increasingly popular due to its environmental friendliness.

If you are looking for an environmentally-friendly way to heat and cool your home, then a Canadian well may be right for you!

The Dangers of Fracking in Canadian Wells

1
fracking

Fracking is a process of drilling and injecting fluid into the ground at a high pressure in order to fracture shale rocks and release natural gas inside. Although fracking has been used in the U.S. since the 1950s, it was not until recently that this process made its way up to Canada. Currently, there is a moratorium on fracking in Quebec, but this process is still occurring in many other parts of the country.

Fracking has been shown to have a number of negative environmental impacts, including water contamination, air pollution, and noise pollution. In addition, fracking can also lead to earthquakes. For these reasons, it is important for Canadians to be aware of the dangers of fracking so that they can make informed decisions about whether or not to support this process.

 

Water Contamination

One of the most well-documented dangers of fracking is water contamination. The chemicals used in fracking fluid can seep into underground water supplies, making them unsafe for human consumption.

In addition, methane gas that is released during fracking can also contaminate water supplies. Methane gas is highly flammable and can lead to explosions if it builds up in enclosed spaces.

Air Pollution

Another danger of fracking is air pollution. The chemicals used in fracking fluid can be released into the air, where they can be breathed in by humans and animals. These chemicals can cause a number of health problems, including respiratory illness, headaches, and nausea. In addition, the methane gas released during fracking can also contribute to air pollution.

 

Noise Pollution

Fracking is a noisy process that can create significant noise pollution. The constant drilling and pumping can create loud noises that can disrupt sleep and cause stress and anxiety. In addition, the bright lights used during fracking operations can also disturb local wildlife and disrupt their natural sleep cycles.

Conclusion

Fracking is a controversial process that is currently taking place in many parts of Canada. Although there are some benefits to fracking, such as the production of natural gas, there are also many dangers associated with this process. These dangers include water contamination, air pollution, noise pollution, and earthquakes.

For these reasons, it is important for Canadians to be aware of the potential risks before deciding whether or not to support fracking operations in their areas.

The Smart Farming Technologies Shaping the Future of Agriculture

1
smart farming technologies

Humans have tilled the land and raised livestock for millennia, yet the technology behind agriculture is improving and evolving. More innovative solutions to age-old problems are being developed and deployed, so what can we expect from the future of farming?

 

The challenge

The world population just crossed the 8 billion mark and is forecast to reach 9.8 billion by 2050, and with concerns about food security on the rise, experts are asking how we will feed everyone. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) estimates that we will need to produce 60% more food by 2050 to keep up with demand.

However, climate change, natural resource depletion, and soil erosion make the task more challenging. To meet the needs of a growing population, we must rethink food production while protecting our natural resources.

How can we do that? Here are some of the smart technologies shaping agriculture and the future of food production.

 

Efficiency through vertical farming

vertical farming

Farming uses lots of land and water and consumes all sorts of other resources, such as fertilizer, to create the products we all rely on to live.

But there are more efficient approaches than this. The vertical farming movement seeks to address this by growing upwards, not outwards.

Taking farming indoors, stacking crops high, and bringing the source of food closer to urban areas means less waste and fewer harmful chemicals are needed to grow what the world’s vast population requires.

Vertical farms are also less labor-intensive since smart technologies like the internet of things (IoT) allow the modern farmer to centrally monitor and control everything, with automation reducing the need for manual input from humans.

 

Autonomous farming machines

Another aspect revolutionizing farming is the heavy autonomous machinery side of the equation.

There have been electric tractors and efficient, agriculture trucks for some time now, and the plan is for fully autonomous equipment to eventually replace traditional vehicles in the years to come.

All sorts of advantages come with automating the process of controlling large equipment, particularly during planting and harvesting. Self-driving tractors don’t need to take breaks, so people won’t be required to stay at the controls morning, noon and night when the most important seasons roll around.

In addition, there’s the question of efficiency and precision. An automated, GPS-controlled vehicle can move with near-millimeter accuracy, making better use of the available land and inputs and using less energy in the process.

Even safety is bolstered through the autonomy of movement for heavy machinery. Taking humans out of hazardous situations is appealing in agriculture and across every other industry.

It’s also worth touching on drones’ role in farming and how this will likely increase as time passes.

Unmanned aerial vehicles equipped with cameras and either controlled by human operators or piloted through automated software can survey vast swathes of farmland in a matter of minutes and transmit their findings in real-time so that farmers can act upon them as necessary. If crop infections are spotted, farmers can deal with them immediately. If animals go missing, they can be found.

 

Big data and analytics

Big data and analytics is playing an increasingly important role in agriculture. By collecting and analyzing large data sets, farmers can make more informed decisions about everything from seed selection and planting to irrigation and crop marketing.

Agricultural production has long been tied to the weather. Prolonged drought can ruin crops, while too much rain can lead to flooding and landslides. As a result, farmers have always been keenly interested in understanding and predicting the effects of changing weather patterns on their crops. 

In recent years, big data and analytics have emerged as powerful tools for agricultural production. Using data gathered from satellites, weather stations, and even individual sensors placed in fields, farmers can now get a real-time picture of conditions across their entire farm. 

Farmers can use this information to make irrigation and planting decisions optimized for the current conditions. 

In addition, by analyzing historical data, farmers can make more informed decisions about what crops to plant and when to plant them. 

 

The Internet of Things

IoT in smart agriculture

The internet of things (IoT) refers to a network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and connectivity tools to enable these objects to collect and exchange data. 

The IoT is being used in a variety of industries, including agriculture. For example, in agriculture, IoT-enabled devices are being used to track livestock, monitor crops, and manage irrigation systems. Farmers can use the data collected by these devices to improve yields, reduce costs, and manage resources more efficiently. 

By connecting sensors and devices on the farm, the internet of things can provide real-time information on conditions in the field. Farmers can then use this information to optimize irrigation schedules, predict crop yields, and make other decisions that can help improve efficiency and boost profits. 

In addition, the internet of things is also helping to improve food safety by providing traceability throughout the food supply chain.

 

Bottom line

As the climate crisis intensifies, smart farming and other climate-smart farming technologies will play an increasing role as sustainable and ecologically sound ways to feed the world.
