Springtime snack

first_imgIf you want to fertilize shade trees individually, Crawford suggests applying 5 pounds per thousand square feet of canopy now and again in June. “I can put a bucket under my arm and throw it out just about as fast as I can walk, estimating height as I go,” Crawford said. Special plants, special blendsAzaleas and specialty plants require specific fertilizer with micro-nutrients added, he said. For more information on how to care for your landscape plants, contact your local UGA Extension agent at 1-800-ASK-UGA1. By Sharon OmahenUniversity of GeorgiaWhether your landscape has fruit trees, shade trees, ornamentals or a blend, a University of Georgia expert says now is the time to fertilize. “Unfortunately for homeowners, finding a fertilizer to use all over the landscape can be challenging,” said Jim Crawford, a University of Georgia Cooperative Extension agent in Jefferson County. For ornamental bulbs, use 3 pounds of fertilizer per 100 square feet of bed. “Just be sure you have the fertilizer down by the time the plants bud out,” he said. Fertilize a pear tree at a rate of 1 cup per year of age, up to 12 cups. Apply half before the tree buds out and the other half after fruiting. For plum and peach trees, apply 1 cup of 10-10-10 fertilizer per year of age, up to 12 cups for mature trees. After harvest, apply 1 pound per inch of trunk diameter up to 5 pounds.center_img Figs should be fertilized in late winter, mid-June and mid-July. Apply one-third pound per foot of tree height each time. “Just like farmers, homeowners will be paying more for fertilizer this year,” he said. “You don’t want to purchase a lot of bags just to use a few pounds of each.”One stop shoppingTo avoid extra expense, Crawford recommends using “good ol’ 10-10-10 fertilizer.” The number pattern on the bag means the mix contains 10 percent nitrogen, 10 percent phosphorus and 10 percent potassium. “This fertilizer will be sufficient for all your needs,” he said. Ornamental shrubs should receive 1 tablespoon per foot of height or 3 tablespoons per 10 square feet, he said. This should be applied in March and repeated in May and July. Old, established muscadine vines need 3 to 5 pounds of fertilizer now and half of a pound in early June. To make sure newly planted vines get what they need, give each one-fourth pound of fertilizer now. Do it again in late May and again in early July. Two-year-old vines need the same as the newly planted ones. However, three-year-old vines like 2 pounds in March and 1 pound in May.Shade trees okayCrawford said most shade trees get enough residual fertilizer when you fertilize your home lawn. “If you are fertilizing the lawn under shade trees, they can get enough from that and no extra is needed,” he said. Different plants need different fertilizer recipes to meet their individual needs, he said. last_img read more

Whicker: Clippers, Lakers can’t just have eyes for each other

first_imgA quick survey among 28 NBA teams indicated they still plan to participate in the 2019-20 season.It will not be the El Segundo City Championship, not automatically.The Denver Nuggets return intact, with Nikola Jokic ready to carry forward his playoff averages of 25 points, 13.8 rebounds and 8.4 assists. No introductions and adjustments are necessary. The Nuggets should fly out of the gate.Portland will be just as good, Utah markedly better. Philadelphia tilted the Eastern Conference by signing Al Horford, a Renaissance player who in Boston was an insoluble riddle for Joel Embiid. Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters Oklahoma City will be formidable if it can resist the urge to trade Russell Westbrook. Paul George was an MVP Finalist there (unlike Kawhi Leonard) but Danilo Gallinari is a 19-20-point constant and young guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has All-Star stuff within him.Milwaukee isn’t going anywhere. And note that Toronto was 17-5 when Leonard sat in the regular season.But one can’t overstate the tectonic effect of the Clippers signing Leonard and trading for Paul George, the one scenario that a week of towering babble never anticipated.The Lakers quickly activated Plan B. It was barely midnight when they agreed to terms with Danny Green. On Saturday they brought in Quinn Cook and welcomed back Rajon Rondo and JaVale McGee. Then the Lakers signed DeMarcus Cousins for one year, a well-managed risk.With Davis and LeBron James and Kyle Kuzma, the terms will be clear. Leonard’s appeal was based on the historic defensive possibilities that he, Davis and James could fashion. But the Lakers can’t miss the man they never had, and they risked an offense with too many cooks.Related Articles Portland star Damian Lillard (knee) to miss Game 5 vs. Lakers For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Video: What LeBron James said about Jacob Blake … ‘Black people in America are scared’ Meanwhile, the Clippers drew a painstaking map and followed it. It’s the basketball equivalent of Manchester City moving alongside Manchester United.While the Lakers were undercutting Mitch Kupchak, tying themselves to Magic Johnson’s people skills and hiring Rob Pelinka to bring his agent’s portfolio to the contradictory process of team-building, the Clippers had Jerry West.They also had Doc Rivers coaching and Michael Winger, Lawrence Frank and Lee Jenkins in the front office.Methodically they vaporized decades of poor decision-making. Only three years ago they seemed destined for the abyss as Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan were nearing a breakup. But they acquired Pat Beverley, Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell, basically their core, for Paul, and they got Tobias Harris for Griffin and then traded him to make room for Leonard. They farmed out Jordan’s salary, and he’s been with three teams since.The Clippers did all this detailing without suffering as much as one losing season, and missed the playoffs only once, while the Lakers dwelt in a septic tank for six years. The Clippers also tailored a communal, no-frills personality that fits Leonard’s.All of this was rooted in 2012 when then-Commissioner and New Orleans steward David Stern inexplicably prohibited the Lakers from trading for Paul but allowed the Clippers to do so.But it also can be traced to 2014. Adam Silver had just succeeded Stern and was charged with cutting out the cancer of Donald T. Sterling. He did so with ruthless precision and won over a whole league of players. Then the impossibly rich and ambitious Steve Ballmer bought the club, hired smart guys and let them work.Leonard had no bad options. Re-signing with Toronto would have been a punishing tax decision, but he is, or was, a national hero and could have won at least one more championship. Signing with the Lakers would have created a Blind Faith-style supergroup and, just with Leonard, Davis and James, a team of historic defensive possibilities.And who can psychoanalyze Leonard? But the Clippers offered something he’d never had: Control.He was under-recruited in Riverside and wound up at San Diego State, in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. He was under-drafted, going No. 15 to San Antonio which traded George Hill for the pick, and was an NBA Finals MVP. He was under-valued when he and the Spurs clashed over his quadriceps injury, and most of the intelligentsia thought Toronto gave up too much, in DeMar DeRozan, to get him. Then he won another NBA Finals MVP.Just this once, Leonard had a chance to set the agenda, to find a Sundance Kid and ride with him.Still, Los Angeles will be the home of intra-city Christmas Night games for the next four years. Staples Center garages will add $20 to park. The courtside seats will be everyone’s red carpet.Using an earthquake as their drum roll, the Clippers and Lakers became the NBA’s best rivalry on Friday night. That will mean something special, as long as they remember they’re not in a league of their own. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

He spoke highly of the team’s efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.MORE: List of MLB players who have opted out”I don’t think we’ve had any positives other than a couple early.

We just have to pick it up and stay on it when we’re on the road,” Trout said, per MLB.com.Trout is especially sensitive to the coronavirus threat because he and his wife, Jessica, are expecting their first child. He said he would leave the team to witness the birth.”I think the biggest concern the whole time was if there’s an outbreak,” the reigning American League MVP said, per MLB.com. “There hasn’t been one yet. If there was, we would have to evaluate the situation, do what’s right for our family. But everything has been great so far. I’ve been locked in on baseball.” Los Angeles will open its 60-game season Friday in Oakland vs. the Athletics. Trout made his announcement around the time it was being reported that the rival Dodgers had agreed with MVP outfielder Mookie Betts on a $365 million contract extension that exceeds the $360 million extension Trout signed last year.”I’m happy for him,” Trout said, per MLB.com “Being so close to him now, it’s pretty cool to have him out here.
