After the heatwave summer: what to look out for during harvesting

After the heatwave summer: what to look out for during harvesting

The rough drought and heat have u. A. Messed up the harvest time. Thus, many potatoes that are still in the ground, already begin to germinate. Also the apples and pears belong this year very early from the tree, so that they last longer in storage. Most of the fruits have been dropped early by the trees in order to survive on their own. Often there is not much left of the very coarse fruit hangings. You can hardly believe your eyes when whole sections of branches, especially on apple trees, start to bleed. So even some chestnuts are in full bloom. When farmers cultivate their fields now, huge clouds of soil dust are rising. Now we can only hope that nature will slowly return to normal and will be replaced by a "normal" crop weather supports farmers and gardeners.

Do not harvest wet fruit

Wet fruit should not be harvested if possible. When stored, the moisture can remain at the contact points for a long time. This destroys the protective wax layer on the fruit peel at these points. This makes it easy for harmful fungi such as putrefactive bacteria to penetrate.

Sow lettuce at the beginning of september

At the beginning of the month it is still possible to sow lettuce. It yields well until the end of the growing season. Red-leaved varieties are much more frost-hardy in autumn than the yellow-leaved ones. The former can withstand temperatures as low as minus 7 degrees celsius without damage. Preserved varieties are "red salad bowl" and "red fire". Especially interesting is lettuce for raised beds. Conveniently, the lettuce leaves can be harvested continuously from the bottom to the top in suitable portions. This is also possible for wheelchair users.

Sophia heilscher is the nightmare of every female goalkeeper

Sophia heilscher is the nightmare of every female goalkeeper

Gerd muller would laugh appreciatively, mario gomez would turn green with envy. Because when sophia heilscher appears in front of the opponent's goal, it's not only dangerous – the ball usually also zaps into the net. The 18-year-old student has already scored 18 times this season, making a significant contribution to the fact that SC oberreichenbach is ranked second in the erlangen/pegnitzgrund district soccer league after the preliminary round and, with a total of 41 goals scored, is by far the best offensive team in the league.

The goalkeeper was absent at the beginning of the season because she spent some time with her aunt in kentucky after graduating from high school. "She played seven games, scoring an average of 2.57 times", trainer rainer kufer calculates. A score that top strikers in the bundesliga can only dream of. However, the petite soccer player does not have a recipe for success: "it's best not to think about it too much. The most important thing is to have fun, then the goal-scoring will work out by itself." in the past season, this was the case a total of 59 times.

Problems at the start of the season
But that's not the only thing. "We have some players in the team who are just as talented as sophia. But she's just a bit more ambitious, always comes to training, wants to improve all the time and: she only needs a few chances", praises kufer the wilhelmsdorferin. Beyond that, it is important for the success of the individual that the team functions as a whole.

Strange posts on the roads

Strange posts on the roads

What kind of strange posts do you think are standing all over the city?? That’s what some passers-by in the city center have been wondering for the last few days. Because there are not a few of these pipes that have been placed on the edges of the roads.

Bernhard weidner has also asked himself this question. The optician, who runs his shop at the post traffic circle, had such a pole placed right in front of his nose or eyes, respectively, it stands on the small fubganger island right in front of the store door. And because the eye expert from herzogenaurach has a keen eye and likes to keep an eye on what is happening in the city, and because he is perhaps also a little curious, he wanted to know what the pipes were all about. Especially since a friend of mine, sempatin hasan from the old bakery, has discovered the same mystery near his place. Wooden eye be alert!

Answer quickly found

so weidner turned to the FT, because he thought the newspaper people had the necessary eyesight and could figure it out "you don’t need any brill’n"." in fact, it took only a moment to discover the right contact person and find an answer. And this is, lo and behold, not at all very spectacular.
At the moment, the roads are being re-marked, says dieter mussack from the civil engineering department at the erlangen-hochstadt district office in response to a question from the FT. Around 500 such pegs have been placed along the circle roads. These are then covered with appropriate information boards. In the future, there will be a sign like this every 500 meters. This is regulated by the bavarian tram administration and concerns besides the circle trams also high placed trams. For state and federal roads, the kilometering has already been done.

"Due to the fact that in the last few months there has been a stronger focus on flat fires within the federal territory, the exercise aims at a deepening in the segment of forest fire fighting", frank kuchler, head of the wildflecken fire department, outlined the key points of the two-day training, in which his troops played a leading role.

"The whole complex of civil-military cooperation, in short ZMZ, is to be intensified for a real operation", the lieutenant described the planned course of the action with 77 participants from bavaria and hesse.

The commanders involved in the exercise included, for example, members of the wildflecken troop airbase command, the hesse helicopter squadron, the disaster control unit in the district of fulda, and the blue-light organizations of the three counties bordering the federal military area. All those involved were precisely instructed by radio from a specially set up operations center and directed to the individual stations in the country.

New device
