I found this little guy in my garden and he made me wonder: Are dragonflies good for a garden or are they a pest.
The verdict is in, dragonflies are very beneficial to gardens. They fead on mosquitoes, aphids, and other garden pests.
and now... here are some dragonfly pictures of a dragonfly in my Garden. In these pictures I was playing around with a very low aperture to create a really shallow depth of field.

Gone are the days of killing plants because you forgot to water them. Below is a fun and easy weekend how to DIY project: a home irrigation system.
-1/2 in. poly tubing
-connector to connect tubing to timer
-cleanable drip heads 4 gallon/hr (number of drip heads depend on the number of plants and amount of water needed)
Step 1:Connect the timer to the water source and the tubing to the timer.
Step 2:Lay out the 1/2 in. tubing where you would like to water.
Step 3:Use a puncher which punches a clean hole in the poly tubing so you can insert the drip head. With a little force push the drip head into the tubing.
Step 4:Set the timer for the amount of water the particular plants you are watering need. I started seeds in this lineup. At first I gave them an hours worth of water a day per plant. I realized that was way to much water for the seeds. I then reduced it to 2 minutes four times a day.
This method works flawlessly if it doesn't you fucked it up. Feel free to comment below if what you are using your irrigation system to grow.
