Recommendations for tree watering during drought conditions

DES MOINES– As drought conditions continue, Iowans are concerned about the amount of water their yard trees need. Drought conditions can lead to tree decline, pest problems and, in extreme cases, tree mortality. Supplemental watering for mature trees will help maintain tree health during drought.
The best way to provide supplemental water to trees during a drought is manually. A bucket to measure how many gallons is best, but a garden hose, moved often, can provide a good soil soaking. Sprinklers are less efficient.

Rockets: from backyard to outer space Saturday, August 4, 7 until 8 p.m.

Professor Randall McEntaffer, Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, UI, will introduce how rockets work and discuss some of their many applications. At the end of the presentation there will be actual launches of several model rockets. All campground programs are presented at the Sugar Bottom Campground Amphitheatre. Sugar Bottom Campground is located north of North Liberty on Mehaffey Bridge Road on the north side of the bridge.

Walkin'

(Note: This is one of a series about our recent trip to the southwest.)

An ancient Pueblo community exists a mile outside of Taos much as it has for the past thousand years.

Food For Thought

I was born into a family of picnickers. This was probably due to several conditions– one being the fact that the Great Depression made it necessary to seek out inexpensive family entertainment. A picnic was easy. You’re going to eat anyway, right? So, if you can pack up your food and eat it outdoors, it becomes an event, not just another meal.
