Photo Challenge: Day 23 – Low Light

From Photo Challenge

I am now committed to cooking. I spent a load of dough today on this pot (and not the kind of dough you knead). I needed a larger sturdy dish like this for cooking chicken dishes, beef dishes and what ever else comes into mind. Don’t you love the rooster!
This photo was shot in shutter priority without a flash with ISO setting of 200. I lightened it up a bit on the computer but it still is a little dark. I like the warm look. There aren’t too many blown out bits that appear.

Nitrogen Deficiency

We have 4 citrus bushes in our backyard and over the past few weeks I have noticed that one is going into decline. This weekend I was able to do a little research on the matter and I think I have come to the conclusion that my bush has a nitrogen deficiency. The UF extension office web site has wonderful advice on every kind of issue that a gardener could have in Florida. It is a great resource to use. I have officially diagnosed the problem with the Eureka Lemon as Yellow Vein Chlorosis. This also could be caused by water damage. To treat this problem, I will be monitoring the irrigation in the area and I have applied some cottonseed meal I had in the garage to increase the nitrogen levels a bit. Hopefully I will be able to save our only lemon bush.
