Johnny St. Veren – 36 buildings in the United States; And grass and garden irrigation tips

Dear Johnny: So, with the occasional exit, we headed to Etes, where a new small building was built with 36. What is its purpose? – Diana

Dear Diana: In fact, there are two new small buildings leading to Estes Park via US 36.

I recently noticed them descending from the bottom to Craiger Rock. So when I got my hands on it, I knew how to explain it to the spokesman for the CD, Jared Phil.

“It’s currently a fiber optic project that connects the fiber optic line from Lyon to Estes,” Fiel said in an email. As part of the project, ITS will allow the Crown Palace in Gold to install two network hubs along the corridor.

One building is about four miles northwest of Lyon. The other is two or three miles northwest of Pinewood Springs.

I underestimated the size of the driveway. When I stepped back to step on one of them, I found that the prefabricated concrete panels were about 12 feet by 40 feet.

“Once completed, those buildings will be guarded by train,” says Fiel. “There are a lot of these buildings around the state.

“The fiber line is partially used by cameras for cameras, but is being used by private companies (for a fee) to improve cell coverage in the area and ultimately improve internet service in general.

Look for construction in the area until the work is completed.

Johnny: What is the most effective way to save water and save all my grass, plants and vegetables?

During extended summers, do we need to water, knowing the temperature of the day? Or does the heat of the day already make them even more thirsty, knowing that it will sink deeper into the soil?

Also, is the timer setting indicated for each / both?

thanks you. – Burned

It burned Let’s start with your morning / afternoon question. Or it works.

“The key is not to water during the summer,” said Derry Davidson, CSU’s horticultural extension agent. That restricts evaporation and gives plants water when they are most in use.

If you have a spray system, it works well for lawns overnight. Check during the day to make sure your spray heads cover the area you want. Helping your lawn with summer heat I recommend reading the Carol Omera July 27 column.

Regarding efficiency, “one of the biggest issues is how you apply (water),” Davidson said.

Garden plants, such as vegetables, prefer a steady stream of water, which is given to the roots. (Johnny St. Viren / Longmont Times-Call)

One drop is very good and very effective for flower gardens and orchards. Apply the water to the soil, the root zone; She says. With vegetables, (spraying) can actually be harmful. Most do not want their leaves to get wet. Apply water directly to the root zone.

Davidson said dripping systems are not difficult to install. In fact, you can buy them at local home improvement stores.

Burn, If you choose to water your vegetables and your age, focus on the roots, not the leaves.

“They really need consistent water,” said Davidson. This is necessary to obtain a uniform yield from those plants. Do not wait until you see water before you water it. (Note: Some waterlogged plants, such as pumpkins and squash, die during the day, but survive until the evening.)

“They can make the lawn and the gardens dry for a while,” she said. “Some plants are resilient and can be easily absorbed. Not with vegetables. It affects the product. It takes a lot of water to produce. ”

Regarding the suggested timer setting – you need to check that because the answer is different for each plant.

“Look for any crop,” Davidson said. Each plant has different requirements.
