I found this spider long time a go and I can't figure out what it is called. I found it Colorado.

Bentonite for very small ponds?

I wish to put in a very small pond in my garden. 5-6ft across and 3-4ft deep. We have the common clay soil of Boone Co. I want a more natural water feature, and would prefer not to use a membrane liner, if possible.

Would Bentonite work for this application, or does a pond need to be much larger for Bentonite to work?

If this isn't practical, could you suggest the best way for me to accomplish what I am aiming for? A natural pool that I can plant into and that will become biologically active and (mostly) self-sustaining?

Fact Sheet no. 9.311 - Colorado State University Ext

Need some clarification with regards to this fact sheet. Is it required to pre-cook the meat we are preparing for jerky or will just placing the marinated meat into a pre-heated dehydrater that can reach 155-160 degrees be safe? And are the only acceptable marinates the brine or the vinegar dip mentioned in the article or can we use other marinate recipes?

While the article does mention that it is recommended to pre-cook by the USDA, it also states that final product would not be a "traditional" jerky. It also provides two jerky prep methods, neither one says to pre-cook the meat. Both directions are prepare in the brine or marinate for a certain length of time then place the raw/marinated meat in a pre-heated dehydrater.

I think the posted article is confusing as it says one thing then does something else.

Hummingbirds and Cannabis?

Hi! After reading this article,
http://basementsugar.co.uk/hummingbirds-on-cannabis-buds/

I wondered if anyone knew why hummingbirds seem willing to feed from Cannabis?

Based on this article:
http://www.extension.org/pages/44129/are-there-plants-that-produce-nectar-that-is-poisonous-to-eithe...
I get the idea that it might be possible that the nectar of Cannabis contains some of the active ingredients that humans seek it out for? But I was not aware that Cannabis produces any nectar at all, since it is wind pollinated it has no need to entice pollinators, right? Or are we misreading the image and is it possible that the bummers are in fact hunting wee insects like mites or thrips among the flowers and not the THC crystals or nectar?

So I guess this is really three questions - does cannabis have nectar and if so, does it contain the active ingredient THC, and are hummingbirds after that, or could they possibly be after other nutrients/vitamins/lipids/etc. that can be found in flower nectar?

Thanks!
