Day #9: Water Quality


All of life is water-based.

That pretty much covers it for me.

And why do we care about water quality? Many reasons, but one stands out:

It’s the law.


Lessons Learned

  • The hydrologic cycle occurs in four stages:
    • Precipitation
    • Runoff
    • Infiltration
    • Evaporation
  • In short, what goes around comes around. Treat that water nicely because you’re going to drink it one day, and so are your plants, etc.
  • There is way more to water quality than that, but if you need more, I have the name of a guy who knows a guy and for the right sum of money, he can explain EVERYTHING. The point is, I don’t need to know everything; I just need to know the guy.

Master gardeners are the most popular people at the party. Even more so than obstetricians.

Why would the obstetrician be popular?


  • Evapotranspiration – Loss of water from plant tissues in the form of water vapor, usually through leaves and stems. Think plant sweat.

A collection of flowers along the parking lot at Green Spring Gardens, none of which I can identify.


Read chapter on Plant Pathology. (Ugh, more d*mned science.)

Do open-book, open-friend mid-term test, due Oct. 13.
