The Vegetable Garden application is for the enthusiastic gardener looking to grow their own vegetables or the novice gardener just starting out. It contains information on many vegetables, giving detailed information on soil preparation, growing tips, harvesting and best varieties.
The app has the following features:
☆ 52 vegetable growing guides, with more added with each update
☆ detailed images of the vegetable
☆ A to Z list of vegetables
☆ Favourites screen where you can store your favourite vegetables
☆ Detailed information on each vegetable listed
☆ Search screen
☆ Fast and simple to use
If there is a vegetable that you think we have missed and you would like to see it listed, then please drop us an email at email@example.com and we'll see what we can do.
NOTE: The sowing and harvesting times given on the schedule chart are specific to the UK & Ireland climate
When the app is opened for the first time, the image files are downloaded therefore it requires that you have a good wifi internet connection. After this initial download of data, the app then functions completely offline, with no need for an internet connection.
If you are having problems with the app, rather than leave a negative review, please email us and we will help rectify any problems that you are having. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Although geophysics was only recognized as a separate discipline in the 19th century, its origins go back to ancient history. The first magnetic compasses were lodestones, appearing in written records, found in early surviving descriptions from China, India and Greece, with a modern magnetic compass dating back to the fourth century BC and the first seismoscope was built in 132 BC. Geophysical methods were developed for navigation; Isaac Newton applied his theory of mechanics to the tides and the precession of the equinox; and instruments were developed to measure the Earth's shape, density and gravity field, as well as the components of the water cycle. In the 20th century, geophysical methods were developed for remote exploration of the solid Earth and the ocean, and geophysics played an essential role in the development of the theory of plate tectonics.
Geophysics is applied to societal needs, such as mineral resources, mitigation of natural hazards and environmental protection. Geophysical survey data are used to analyze potential petroleum reservoirs and mineral deposits, locate groundwater, find archaeological relics, determine the thickness of glaciers and soils, and assess sites for environmental remediation.
