Does anyone recommend getting a job with the CCC?

Working outdoors and learning new skills appeals to me but it seems oriented towards teenagers, and the mandatory schooling and communal living stuff makes it sound more like some kind of gay summer camp than a job.

What is the function of this kit?

Replace shotgun with a .410, lighter ammo means you can carry more/use the weight elsewhere. A couple hot slugs will do you just fine for claws and teeth or two legged predators, plus you can throw in a few birdshot rounds for rabbit/squirel if that is your plan. Ditch that shovel and get a one piece unit like the cold steel meme shovel. Pack a secondary fire source, because there is nothing worse than the lighters breaking/getting stuck down and bleeding out. Plus fero rods are panty droppers. Personal preference but I like those mio bottles over individual dry pouch drink mixes. Also way to many fire starters, break off chunks from one, you don't need three. I've heard mixed reviews on that hatchet, but a saw would be a nice compliment either way (maybe fill the void in weight from the .410 downgrade?). Only the one knife? Also throw in a roll of bankline, I don't see any rope and while it's not a necessity it takes up next to no space and from my personal experience a little bank line to help secure shit can be a godsend at times plus string is a source of cheap recreation if you're an easily ammused idiot like me.

Get some white light in there, turn off the purple stuff, and take another photo so the coloration can be properly identified. Normally, discoloration and leaf drop is water based, either too much or not enough. That can cause fertilizer problems or it can only be a fertilizer problem either too much or nor enough. Double check drainage and make sure the pots are still draining well after watering. Water when they need watering, by double checking your watering routine. Write down the watering times and you may get to see a pattern develop from plant to plant.

Of course, check for insects, under the leaves and damage from them. Do that during the daytime and the night time. I had a few stink bugs coming out at night and sucking on my seedlings. It was the dead of winter and they had come in for hibernation, but the warmth of the house kept them away. All the insects like wasps, lady bugs, and stink bugs ended up on my seedlings. The wasps and lady bugs ate any problem insects except the stink bugs. I killed about a dozen last season, but not before they caused some problems with the plants.

With an additional photo, color type and location can help identify nutrient deficiencies.

I might be over-watering them. There was some white fungus growing on the side of the pot recently, which could be a result of waterlogging the pot and soil. I'll start by reducing watering frequency.
>>
>>1413574
Huh, that looks just like what my basil has. I saw a few tiny unidentified white bugs, so I guess it's thrips. Might be the same with your peppers if you can find them but they are really damn tiny, almos invisible.

I was about to make a post and ask where those little bastards hide so I can get rid of them if it really is thrips damage.
>>
>>1413574
>>1413614
Yeah, that does look like thrips or white flies. Put up yellow sticky pads so that you can check for and identify pests before they reach this stage. Fungus growing in/on the soil is pretty common. It has more to do with higher humidity indoors and slow drying out of the soil than simply overwatering. You can try neem oil to help get rid of most pests. A light dusting of diatomaceous earth can also help. A reflective surface on the floor/pot reflecting light up to the undersides of the leaves can help interrupt the pest cycle, but won't get rid of them on its own.

Since it is indoor, a trap plant might help a great deal. Just get them on the trap plant after the neem oil on the main plants and cart them outdoors.

I had plants in the ground this past summer that were rather crowded, and some in pots. The ones in the ground did many times better.

Hello Friends.

I'm going to be sat on a hill everyday for the next 3 months counting birds in 0-5c weather, wind etc.

But i have to climb the hill. Whats the best system to stay warm? Obviously i'll be taking a backpack to put things in. I've just been windproof and then microfleece/layers at the moment, but its my bottom half i struggle with.

Have long johns then some trousers but they arent warm enough on their own.

No, you need a breed that is better built for traveling. If you want something smaller than a horse, get a pack goat or 3. They are browsing foragers and will eat most anything on the trail.

What are we talking for temperature? Fish stay near deep cover during the winter in the north. Weight the t rig with a 1/8 - 1/2 oz bullet weight depending on how deep you are fishing and slowly walk it over shit. A football head jig works well if you have hard bottoms.

Got one, used to be $22.

Seems OK for what it is. Sprayed with waterproofing. Setup take down very easy even first time.

I'm thinking about making rip stop 1.6oz cover for insulation and rain.

As other reviews say, you want to put something at your head to keep angled tent off.

no experience with that tent but get the square stove instead of the cylinder
the best part of a stove in your tent is making your morning tea without having to go outside the tent until your ready
you cant cook on a round stove

The method in its use is rather different. A normal spear is a bit easier to master in a shorter amount of time. Once the launcher is added it is just different and takes a while. Regardless, it isn't hard, but it is hard to hit a target 70% or more of the time that you need to do before trying to actually hunt with it. That's a lot of practice. A bow is much easier in that regard.
