I was adding a section of fence to my sister in laws farm today . I set posts and ran wire . When it was time to hook on to the controller, I found a bare ground wire on the lug labeled fence , this ran to the grounding rod. The ground lug had an insulated wire going to the existing section of fence. The existing fence is working is this backwards??
Not working at all, if that was the case! (Since the hot side was grounded.)
Are your mushrooms getting enough fresh air? These organisms generate a lot of CO2 so fresh oxygen and proper humidity are important at the fruiting stage. If you can describe your culture conditions and post a picture that might help.
I tried some LED replacement tubes in some older shop fixtures and they didn't work properly. It turns out you need newer electronic ballasts for this to work as plug-and-play for most of them (or LEDs that don't use a ballast at all, in which case you have to rewire the fixtures).
Potato onions (and garlic) don't like extended wet conditions - I lost several varieties to two back-to-back wet summers when they just rotted in the ground. Those of you in drier climes should not experience this issue, but it was a problem here in the mid-Atlantic.
Some of those Appalachian heirlooms take a while to get going and then take off in the Fall. (I think that's why some are called October Beans.). That's so cool that you have one that has been passed down in your family!
I also try to set aside a few of the best vines to go to seed and then pick the rest to keep them bearing for an extended harvest.
Guess you'll always remember that move (many of us have similar experiences in our past). That looks like a great piece of property and hopefully you are past your flat arrival. Be well and keep us updated (but you might want to change the title of your thread to something less concerning).
