i bought the cheapest ``organic seedling pots`` a few months ago. it was a waste o time an money. those ``pots`` where garbage and ineffective. the soil would dry up no matter what. lesson: DON'T buy cheap biodegradable pots.

 

   i planted them just to see what will happen (after all the seedings existent died) as an experiment.

important:

  • if you'll move to college next year, be traveling for a few months in a different climate or simply relocate  -buy your clothes right now.  it may seem nonsense but trust me you will stress less when you know that you will leave in one month and you  don't have to spend money on clothes after you've had so many expenses already

1 august 2018, Wednesday/woensdag

  •  at 12.01 i realized that i will start college in less than 29* days!!! then i couldn't fall asleep. thoughts i had:  i ma not ready! i haven't read enough college advice; it`s to soon; my English isn't perfect! i haven't read enough socialization books; i don't know how to budget my time and money properly; i don't have enough time to take care of my plants nor to make a worm farm .                                -_- interesting. but as a counter-argument i will never be ready for anything 100%. though i will really miss my plants 
  • later this day i got nervous and overwhelmed again and i wanted to watch an episode but i realized the paradox! i feel overwhelmed>i want to distract myself> tv series/overeating> even more overwhelmed>more tv series/distractions>and so on . but i can simply feel the neg emotions and do my  chores 

 

  • my mom thought me today how to make red lentil cream soup and a week ago how to make rice+vegetables. though all my family made comments that i added too many vegetables lol. i guess no one will say this when ill be cooking only for myself  soon
  • btw just by watching college advice videos ill be ahead of  90% of fellow students even if i wont apply all of those tips 
  • i am planning to go swimming at the beach. i am insecure of a characteristic of my body and therefore haven't swam since middle school. yap . but i started to take care of it lately. i loved swimming. therefore i want to start swimming classes at college. it would mean the world to me.

fried vegetables&chicken (half of a batch of cauliflower, 1 broccoli, a quarter of zucchini, 2 carrots, 1 parsnip,1 bell pepper + flax&hemp seeds at the end; because in the pan the seeds are wasted and burned on the bottom of the pan as Ive observed so far)

i`ve been interested of the self-hypnosis side of self-help industry since even before discovering leo but due to believing that i am to busy and poor prioritization i never really got into it. well maybe for a few months  2 years ago -it really helped me to solve the anxiety i had around a specific action. anyways resistance kicked in and my BS to do it perfectly pretty much made me quit going further

 

anyways ive been using this self-hypnosis technique for over a month before mediation/self hypnosis language learning audio/shamanic breathing. it really does relax me. you just put yourself in a mild trance:

 

 

Language Learning Success Self Hypnosis CD / MP3 Download Make learning a new language easier with the help of hypnosis! i cant recommand this enough. plus it`s very very very relaxing. it`s a quality recording meaning that it makes you feel, see and experience not like the shit i used 2 years ago.

 

i am thinking of switching my do-nothing  meditation with a guided meditation mp3 recorded version / relaxation self hypnosis. why? because my mediation practice have been slowly turning to shit. i started struggling 10 months ago after i hit a year of do-nothing mediation (witch was wonderful). in the last 4-5? months it got almost impossible to mediate without getting unbearably  bored , stressed or just intense day dreaming

InkedIMG_4_LI.jpg ants are there because those aphids create some kind of sugar that that ants need. the downside its that the ants are ``bulling`` the natural predators of aphids

 

 

How to control the leaf curl aphid

 

 

Many insects, including lady beetles, green lacewings, flower flies, and parasytic wasps, prey on leaf curl aphids.

Aphids can be removed from trees and shrubs by just washing with water. actually it rained a lot for week and 98%of aphids died. isn't this amazing?

Insecticidal soap and contact insecticides can kill many aphids, but leaf curl aphids are protected by the leaf wrapped around them. We apply systemic insecticides to kill leaf curl aphids when insect predators, washing and contact insecticides aren't enough to control your aphid infestation.

For aphids that cause leaves to curl, once aphid numbers are high and they have begun to distort leaves, it's often difficult to control these pests, because the curled leaves shelter aphids from insecticides and natural enemies.

Substantial numbers of any of these natural control factors can mean the aphid population may be reduced rapidly without the need for treatment.

Ants are often associated with aphid populations, especially on trees and shrubs, and frequently are a clue that an aphid infestation is present. If you see large numbers of ants climbing your tree trunks, check higher up the tree for aphids or other honeydew-producing insects that might be on limbs and leaves. To protect their food source, ants ward off many predators and parasites of aphids. Managing ants is a key component of aphid management. (See Cultural Control.)

Many predators also feed on aphids. The most well known are lady beetle adults and larvae, lacewing larvae, soldier beetles, and syrphid fly larvae.

Where aphid populations are localized on a few curled leaves or new shoots, the best control may be to prune out these areas and dispose of them. In large trees, some aphids thrive in the dense inner canopy; pruning out these areas can make the habitat less suitable.

When aphids can't be controlled by these natural methods, insecticides containing the active ingredients acephate, bifenthrin, and imidacloprid are effective.

This type of aphid is easily controlled, however, early treatment is recommended before damage occurs. Treatments can be done by soil injection where by making for a safer and more efficient way to treat this pest.

IMG_20180723_174601.jpg

 i didn't let the soil from the bucket to dry a little bit . when i pured it it in a pot where i planted oregano seeds it just dried up completely in a form of a solid block.  be patient. the seedlings never appeared

spiders lay eggs on leaves resulting in the damage of the leaves. use the essential oil mix or just kill them and the leafs infested 

 

InkedIMG_201807227_LI.jpg

the plants from left and right died. i assume because i planted them to late in the season or bc it rained a lot and they got burned by the fertilizer bars i put into the ground. last year i sued no man-made fertilizers
