Bully Water, What The???

9 posts in this topic

I have heard some say in the past it is good for growing, but look what I grew with it this year:

My wife and I never planted these. I started dumping bully used water last spring. I liked this area because it had rocks and when I poured the bully tank over, it did not wash away nothing. I think they are some seeds that spread from hanging baskets we have had in the past. Kept dumping water in the same area and next thing you know, these flowers popped up.

Just an FYI for any green thumbs in the cat forum wink!

I told you guys! Better than miracle grow. By the way, if you lose any along the way, bury them in the garden. I think we all knew that one though.

Ya, about a month or so ago I started to see what I though was weeds popping up. I did not pick them or treat them (lazy). Then I seen one of them bloom. I did not pick the ones that bloomed and now we have what we have.

I would dump the water on the concrete a little to prevent a wash out of the rocks. You can see where the water spread to the one side and drianed out the front to the lawn with the flowers.

My mom (flower nut) can not even believe what has happened grin. I swear to God, we never put any seeds down. Why would we in this spot?

That's amazing...

I usually wash the fish on the lawn before I take them in for cleaning as well...that part is always greener. I'd figure it's just the extra water.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
