    Got this as a culinary bunch with roots and decided to cultivate it. Divided into two pots to give it room. Potting soil is cheap garbage without sand, so drainage is not great. I just now put crushed stone in the bottom of the pot to help, but I need sand. It has grown root structure. I notice it wilts easily, even though the soil is still moist. It has also produced small flowers which I have pinched off. Can bolting be reversed, given it is April? I could conceivably put them outside on a table, with some risk. How do I get good results?I seem to be limping along.

  • Is it normal for a clothes drier to steam up a small room?

    I have looked outside and the exhaust duct blades are opening. But it am not sure the drier is perfectly aligned with the duct. Hence my question, is it normal for the room to heat up? Or should the duct conduct all that away?

  • Is Long John Silver's generally a good fish experience?

    For me fried fish is a rare indulgence. But nothing frozen contains any flaky fish flesh. Instead it is like dissolved fish inside a batter. Now if I plunk down 10-15 dollars at LJS will I get real fish or more junk?

  • About cleaning refrigerator coils?

    I don't have exposed coils but in the back there is the compressor on one side and a box with a fan on the other. Is this the radiator that I want to clean of dust? Id so, I do so with a steam wand. But I am wondering what is the best way to clean the back of the fridge to get the best efficiency.

  • Have you reduced sodium to reduce blood pressure?

    I have and it seems tohave worked great. A month ago I was 154, this month after reduced salt 124, near perfect. And this did not eliminate all salty condiments etc., basuically no added salt by me. I can't believe how easy it was to reduce the HP!
