Your Questions About Gardening

John asks…

Is this a normal situation for this day of age?

Well, went to school right. My goal was to get a degree, learn as much as I can, and apply it to life.
At first I didn’t know what I wanted to do, so i learned about everything there was to do.

I found my path and got my degree. I almost double majored, but I just wanted to graduated and get it out of the way.

I find I use my degree in every day life, it helps me make more efficient decisions, and better ones.

Worked multiple jobs to get by and make it through, and learned many skills and trades along the way, like carpentry, landscaping, electrical, plumbing, drywall, painting, you name it….

So after graduating, and living frugally through college (One meal a day for years frugal…), I realized there’s a lot more to life than I thought.

To see all the nice houses and nice cars, and nice landscapes, and wonder, man they sure do make it look easy……

So since college was a pretty penny, made a decision to take my parents up on an offer to rent out their “apartment space” in their house, which is a nice space, and allows me to come and go as I please.

They don’t mind me, since I’m a clean/neat/organize freak. I help them out a lot, and always clean up after myself, and sometimes my younger siblings.

I also apply my skills to maintain their house and large property. I put in gardens, green the grass up greener than all the neighbors, install motion sensor lights, fans, change outlets, paint the house inside and out, caulk, seal, move furniture, dishes, trash, you name it.

Anything I can, so my parents don’t have to lift a finger. Sometimes it’s a lot especially during the busy months, and can seem overwhelming, but that’s when I just take some deep breaths, and it all sorts out.

I’d always dreamed of getting my own place, and I guess at some point that will be my ultimate goal, but sometimes I wonder about life.

My parents took care of me, so maybe one day i’ll need to take care of them! And now they’re getting old, and all that property stuff like gutters and power washing needs to be done….

With going from job to job, and making ends meet by paying bills, maintenance, food, living expenses, rent, gas, toiletries, etc….getting my own place seems like a stretch!! And hard to justify paying expensive high dollar rent around here, when I’m already around here….

I wonder about life though and wonder if i’m overstaying my welcome, my ma doesn’t seem to think so, and I’m sure my pa doesn’t since he lowered my rent a little for all my efforts around here….

Put as every year passes, the thought re-occurs…

GardenersCardiff answers:

I never understood the reasons why parents felt the need to push their kids out the door as soon as they turned 18. There are many cultures, especially Asian ones, where children live with their parents their entire lives, and sometimes three or four different generations all live under the same roof. This is especially beneficial if there are small children in the family who can benefit from living in a large family setting so that while some adults are working, other adults are at home caring for the younger ones.

I don’t see why it’s wrong or socially unacceptable. Personally I couldn’t imagine living with anyone else by my mom at the moment. Why would I want to go rent out an apartment I currently can’t afford and would end up in debt? Why get a roommate that may rip you off with the rent or bills later on?

Sure, some people may like the independence, but personally I rather like being able to take care of my mom, she took care of me after all.

Think of it as communal housing, living with other people. What better people to live with than the people you trust most?

Helen asks…

please help me with my math…please ill be very greatful for help….?

I looked streight at the assessment and started crying because it was like reading a foreign language. im not good at math and i need someone to explain in an easy way so i can get these lessons made up from two weeks ago
i need help to understand how to do the questions.
i dont need the answers just please explain how to do these so i can finish the asessment
this may take some time…. almost as much time as it is trying to type all of this.
(by the way, the x is multiplying, not a variable) (the ^2 (or whatever number) means to the _____ power ex: to the fifth power)

Find the equivalent form:

(8×10^4) + (5×10^2)

(5×10^5)+(9×10^3)+(2×10^2)

(8×10^2) – (3×10^4)+(5×10^4)- (4×19^2)

(2×10^3) – (5×10^2)

(6×10) + (4×10^3) – (3×10^2)

(1×10) + (8×10^4) – (7×10^3)

that’s the first set of questions. the next set is:
(i have no clue how to do these because i was sick.)

The thermometer reads 24°C. What is the equivalent Fahrenheit temperature? Round your answer to the nearest degree

The thermometer reads 113°F What is the equivilant celsius temperature
round if nessessary

Use the fact that 1 meter is approximately 3.28 feet to answer the question.
Jacob needed 50 feet of fencing to enclose his garden. The crate of fencing from the supply store said it contained 15 meters of fencing. How did this compare to the amount he needed?

Use the fact that 1 meter is about 1.09 yards to answer the question.

I feel really dumb.
any questions? just ask.
uck.. not good at that either. sorry.

GardenersCardiff answers:

(8 x 10^4) + (5 x 10^2) = (8 x 10 x 10 x10 x 10) + (5 x 10 x 10) = 80,000 + 500 = 80,500

10^n ==> just add ‘n’ zeros to the number that you are multiplying

(5 x 10^5) + (9 x 10^3) + (2 x 10^2) = 500000 + 9000 + 200 = 509200

(8 x 10^2) – (3 x 10^4) + (5 x 10^4) – (4x 10^2) = (8 – 4)(10^2) + (5 – 3)(10^4) = 400 + 20000 = 20400
In this case, you can combine like terms (all terms w/same facto

I believe you can finish the remaining problems in that section.

Given: temp = 24 C
Find: temp in F =( C x 1.8) + 32 = (24 x 1.8) + 32 = 43.2 + 32 = 75.2 deg F

To convert F to C==========> (F – 32)/1.8

1 liter = 1000 milliters

therefore: 964 ml = 964/1000 = .964 liters rounded = 1 liter

1mg = .001g
therefore:
1mg/.001g = .2mg/x g
x = .2 x .001 = .002 g

Use the stated conversion for the penguin problem.

1 quart = 4 cups
9 cups/ 4 cups/quart = 2.25 quarts, but since the problem asked how many quarts should she buy – the answer would be 3 – cannot buy a partial quart.

1meter = 3.28 feet
15meters x 3.28 = 49.2 feet/roll

Unfortunately, since he needs 50′ of fence, he will have to purchase 2 rolls of fencing.

1 meter = 1.09 yards

100m x 1.09 = 109 yds/10 sec

100 yd /10 sec

therefore; Whizzer ran about 9 yards farther than Flash in 10 secs

1lb = 0.45kg

10lb = .45 x 10 = 4.5kg

1 gal = 3.79 liters

1gal/3.79 liters : x gal/60 liters

60 liters (1 gal/3.79 liters) = 16.83 gal
