Looking forward to growing a shady garden
posted by Martha Dalton on July 9th, 2018 11:23 PM
Hi all, I am thinking of growing a vegetable garden. But, I am hoping to grow as many vegetables as possible than just the two or three. Also, I am looking forward to growing a shady vegetable garden if that matters. This is my first time growing one, so any pieces of advice regarding the same would be very much appreciated. Does anyone here have any experience in growing a shady garden? Is it possible to have both vegetables and some flowering plants together in a shady garden? I know of where I can get some good native plant mixes, which I was planning to grow along with the vegetables. I would really love to know your suggestions on this. Thanks in advance!
Anyone else here successfully grown trees from seed?
posted by Jeo Moser on June 17th, 2018 11:32 PM
I am a person who is interested in bodybuilding. I use to practice healthy and organic food habits. My friend bought some berries from his backyard berry trees. I have those berries with my breakfast. Berries are very tasty. Moreover, they are good for our body health. I planned to grow berries in my backyard. I kept 40 or 50 of the seeds. They are easy to germinate, but I was not able to look after the berries since I was busy with my life and career. It happened years back. Now I am in Toronto and I want to grow some tree seedlings (https://stwilliamsnursery.com/products/#sthash.dREDkjJ8.dpbs). Summer is approaching and it is the best time to grow berries. So I bought some berry seedlings from a nursery. But growing a tree is not so easy as growing flowering plants. I got an opportunity to talk with a gardener and he gave me some ideas about growing a tree from seeds. But he hasn’t tried it yet. I am really interested in growing it. It was a decision taken by me on this environment day. Well, I have no idea with this decision. Anyone else here successfully grown trees from seed?

Practical Advice: Fireworks & Pets, esp Those Gone Missing
posted by Kathleen Ensey on June 30th, 2014 10:02 PM
Neighbors, This year's annual 4th fireworks display has been relocated from downtown to Circuit of the Americas. This change will more than likely create an even greater occurrence of neighborhood fireworks, which are illegal within the city limits and harmful for your pets. The Goal? To keep beloved pets safe before the "pop-pop-pop or BOOMs begin. If not, a pet can escape, roam frantically and possibly get hurt or taken to an animal shelter, where it will take up kennel space for animals who really have no home --- recently the daily overpopulation at Austin Animal Center has risen to over 100 canines and 25+ felines. So our efforts to keep our dogs & cats safely at home, also helps our shelter and its monthly No Kill goal. What's a pet guardian to do? 1 - Learn from Missing Pet Partnership experts' advice - see links below 2 - Circulate any of attached graphics to raise awareness with family, friends & neighbors PROACTIVE MEASURES 1. Identification Microchip Remember you can get your pet microchipped for FREE at Austin Animal Center - takes 5-10 minutes max http://www.missingpetpartnership.org/recovery-tips/prevention/ Not sure your pet is microchipped?

Help Prioritize Projects for the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan
posted by doug on June 26th, 2014 2:24 PM
From CAMPO: Tired of sitting in traffic? The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) invites you to help prioritize future transportation projects that could help to address Capital area traffic needs. CAMPO, the regional transportation planning agency for the Central Texas area, launched a new online survey today to gather input from residents, workers, and business owners in Bastrop, Burnet, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, and Williamson Counties. The survey asks residents to indicate their top priorities in each of the six counties in the region as well as priorities related to transit and transportation alternatives (bicycle, pedestrian, etc.) projects. This is a follow-up to the six public workshops held by CAMPO in the region earlier this Spring. The input received from the survey and the meetings will inform the development of the CAMPO 2040 Regional Transportation Plan, the plan that sets the long-range transportation priorities for the region. To date, hundreds of people have shared their opinions through meetings, social media, and via email. The survey is available and will be open until July 25 via the CAMPO website and at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2040PlanOnline "Our study area covers six counties with different needs, stakeholders, and viewpoints," said Commissioner Will Conley, CAMPO Transportation Policy Board chair. "Providing an online opportunity for people to get involved, in addition to the numerous meetings and presentations we are making across the region, is a progressive and efficient way to provide region-wide access to the planning process." Every five years CAMPO is required to create a regional transportation plan for the next 25 years. The 2040 Plan will help identify current and long-term transportation needs and improvement strategies for Central Texas. The long-range transportation plan is then used to guide short-term plans for more immediate action. For more information on the 2040 Plan, please visit the Web site: http://www.campotexas.org. To receive periodic updates on the 2040 Plan and related efforts, please email: 2040Plan@campotexas.org and include Updates in the subject line.

Neighbors, in the spirit of reduce-reuse-recycle, I am looking to see if anyone has an unwanted music stand, either wire or otherwise, suitable for a child learning to play cello. I figure there is a family out there with a child who is no longer in band/orchestra rather than me buying a brand new one. I do not need one that is portable necessarily - any kind ok.

Stanadard Pacific Paint Manufacturer?
posted by mary Bowen on August 12th, 2013 8:33 AM
Just a word about painting the first time over the builder grade (mostly clay) paint...it is not easy! I really made the job more difficult by using the Behr Paint from HD. Coat after coat it wore me out. By accident I changed to Benjiman Moore, and wow, what a difference. I recently used Sherwin Williams on a job and it was really nice too. I think the Behr is not so bad if it is going over an established surface, but using a better grade paint will make your job a lot easier.

Fluffy dog
posted by dhs on March 7th, 2013 10:58 AM
I agree that you have to be careful with Craigslist - require pictures of the dog and/or distinguishing marks not visible in any pictures that you might have posted. It's also a good idea to require confirmation of ownership from a vet.But unfortunately, Craigslist is the most common place that people look for lost animals. I also rescued a lost pooch recently, and I didn't get any response from the posters I put up on light/electric poles and in vet's offices, or from the notices I posted with the Austin Animal Center or the Williamson County Animal Center. But I got 4 calls from Craigslist, none of them the owner however.Doug
Free paint, multiple colors
posted by Janelle Dozier on October 15th, 2012 9:59 AM
I have a number of one-quart Sherwin-Williams latex interior paint samples. Since they are water-based, brushes (and hands) can be cleaned with soap and water. They may be suitable for school projects for children. I have two colors of blue, one green, several shades of gray (not 50!), several shades of gold and yellow. We live at 1908 Emma Long Street. I'll set the box in our alley for anyone to pick up. Janelle
Lego Fest Tickets Swap or Possible Sale
posted by Dana Williams on August 31st, 2012 10:01 PM
I have four tickets (3 kids, 1 adult) for the Lego Fest this weekend for the Sunday afternoon session at the Convention Center. I would like to swap if by chance there is anyone who wants to the Sunday afternoon session (think it runs approx 3-7ish) in favor of the Sunday morning session which I would prefer. Alternatively, if you know my family and would be willing to drop off and escort until inside my almost 16 yr old and his responsible 10 year old brother, I would be willing to sell at face value one adult and one kid ticket for the Sunday afternoon session. They are perfectly capable of attending such an event on their own. My other child and I would prefer not to go but no under-18 year olds are admitted without an adult for some reason. I had originally planned to drop off the two boys with my teen in charge since they are the most interested in our family but had to buy four tickets for everyone instead of the two due to this rule. FYI that all tickets are now sold out for the entire weekend according to the event website. Please email at williamsdr3@yahoo.com">williamsdr3@yahoo.com Thanks, Dana and Greg

Austin-area homeowners and renters could save hundreds of dollars on water bills
posted by danx111 on June 28th, 2012 2:48 PM
By Robert Burns Texas AgriLife Extension Service Austin-area homeowners and renters could save hundreds of dollars on their monthly water bills and still maintain a healthy landscape by taking advantage of a "PET" project at the Morris Williams golf course in north central Austin, according to Texas AgriLife Extension Service experts. PET stands for potential evapotransporation, and relates to how much moisture turf and other landscape plants need depending upon daily temperatures, sunlight, humidity, wind and other factors, said Dr. Guy Fipps, AgriLife Extension irrigation engineer, College Station. Fipps and his AgriLife Extension associates recently aided the Austin Water Utility in getting a scientific-grade weather station back online at the golf course after a three-year hiatus. "It's back online just in time for the summer irrigation season," Fipps said. The weather station's data is uploaded to AgriLife Extension's TexasET Network website at http://texaset.tamu.edu/. Software routines on the website do most of the hard number crunching to make the data usable without requiring math skills, according to Fipps. By going to the website, those who irrigate home landscapes can find specific recommendations — not just for the water requirement under given conditions, but the site will also calculate the run time of a sprinkler system. "In fact, users can create a profile on the website and have their irrigation recommendations automatically emailed to them," Fipps said. The homeowner will need to know a few basic facts, such as weekly rainfall, if any, and the inches of water per hour his or her sprinkler system applies, he said. The website also has calculation routines designed for managers of professional turf landscapes such as golf courses and growers of commercial crops, he said. Jacob Johnson, conservation program specialist with Austin Water Utility, said that with the city's tiered billing system, being able to put on just the needed amount of water needed can result in big savings for customers. The tiers are for every 1,000 gallons above the base usage. "At the end of the month, if you are in these upper price tiers (above 25,000 gallons), every thousand gallons you take off your water bill is $12.19 less on your monthly water bill," he said. In terms of irrigation, 1,000 gallons isn't a lot of water, considering a homeowner's nightly irrigation cycle can consume three or four thousand gallons, Johnson said. "It happens often, but it isn't ubiquitous among all our customers," he said. But if they can curtail irrigation duration time and possibly eliminate a watering or two a month, it's easy to save $50 to $100 a month, Johnson said. "Just by such scheduling alone, we work with customers who can save $200 to $300 a month," he said. "It can add up over the course of a year." This is especially true if seasonal scheduling is done, he said. If people who look at PET-based turf coefficients over wintertime in Central Texas, they find the need for irrigation is outweighed usually by rainfall, Johnson said. A PET-based watering system also works well with water use restrictions, Johnson noted. The Austin area has been in Stage II water restrictions since Sept. 6, which allows watering with an irrigation system or a hose only one day a week. A violation is a class C misdemeanor, making the homeowner subject to a $475 fine for a single violation, according to the Austin Water department website at http://www.waterwiseaustin.org.

What with pools, ponds, artificial grasslands, seating for food vendors, and all other manner of amenity, a dog park does not seem like an exorbitant request.

How peculiar. I've run into many dogs off-leash in the last week with absolutely no "incidents" other than pleasant ones and those with happy endings. * Twice I came across dogs that had snuck out of their homes through faulty fencing. Guess I would have been within my "rights" to call the police or animal control, 311, but it seemed easier and more neighborly just to get a hold of the dogs and call their owners or walk the dogs back home. Had the owners not been available, I'd have taken the dogs to my house to wait for them, as I've done in the past. Again, just being neighborly.* On the hiking trails around the greenbelt, I saw many dogs off leash. In one instance I observed a family with a small boy, about three, as they passed a climbing area where the dogs scampered about. The boy started whimpering. Instead of reinforcing his irrational fears, his parents asked him why he was making such a fuss, since the dogs weren't doing anything to him. He soon got himself under control, and everyone carried on without incident.* In another area of the park there were over two dozen dogs off leash in an area were toddlers and small children were playing and swimming. No problems. No worries. No freak outs. No threats. Welcome to Austin. Welcome back to America as it was before the good-for-you police got a stranglehold on it.For those who are really interested, and not just feigning friendliness or concern, the city's off-leash site is here: http://www.austintexas.gov/department/leash-areas.As stated by the city on that site, please call 311 if you have a question or concern regarding leash compliance. The city instructs you to call 911 only if there is an emergency. Feeling fearful or being bothered are not inherent emergencies. Also, for what it's worth, to those who champion strict adherence to the letter of the law, you will also see that the city ordinance restricts leash length to 6 feet. So, all of those owners who use retractable leashes are in violation of the city ordinance. Also, it is clearly stated that the leash laws apply to all city property, and that includes the undeveloped area that is signed "no trespassing". I note all of this with some trepidation, easily imagining a citizens' committee forming to boycott Petsmart and Petco for selling retractable leashes that do not meet safety standards agreed upon by the consensus of the citizenry and overhead flights with infra-red detectors used to detect trespassers in the prairie.With respect to the Bartholomew park proposal, apparently the plan has been tabled. D'Ann Williams is the parks and recreation contact person on this. She explained to me that there isn't any money. As she described it, the money that was earmarked for Bartholomew is tied to a bond measure passed in 2006. Repair of the pool and parking areas are the top priorities, but, again, the cry is that the coffers are empty. In any case, the proposed off-leash area is reportedly so small that it would be of little use and likely a poor investment. I see that this proposal has popped up previously on this forum. (Interesting, with all of the fuss and effort shown by people here, I don't see where anyone else took the time to call parks and rec or look up the old posts.)As to the relative success of this thread, if it only serves as a spot to whine about minor inconveniences, foster intolerance, and try and push our needs to another neighborhood, then I'd consider it a failure. On the other hand, If it helps us to ban together and press the developer, who is already profiting from the city's land, to provide our neighborhood with a sorely needed city amenity without further encumbering taxpayers, then we will have lived up to the legacy left by those for whom we have named some of the streets of our neighborhood. If it helps us all to gain some perspective and learn to tolerate and support one another in a manner befitting a city so unique as to officially memorialize and revere those whose notoriety stems in part from their willingness to openly flaunt disregard for the norms and laws of society, then we can consider it a tribute to our strength as a truly Austin neighborhood.
Synthetic Lawn

We saw a great looking synthetic lawn at this splash park up in Williamson County and it was beautiful, but really really hot in the summer. You can't really sit on it unless you cover it.Just another consideration.

Mueller House Hawk

Thanks, Dan and Joe! indicates that they have a hunting radius of less than a mile from their nest. Given the relative dearth of trees on the undeveloped land compared to say Morris Williams, I'm guessing that future development will have little impact on nesting.Much like Dodger noticed an increase in grackles, I'm also seeing an increase in pigeons. If the hawks can keep their numbers down, I'd be happy for the POA to do what it can to keep them around.-steve

Wanted to borrow or buy very cheap: Brown, leather, or leather-like sandals for a part in Aladdin musical for my daughter Ninar. Can we borrow for one week or buy if they are just old ones cluttering up your closet? They must be brown. Her current non-brown summer sandals have been deemed unacceptable by the play director. Size 5.5 to 7 should work. Need by Wednesday at the latest. Thanks for any help. Please PM. Dana Williams

Hi Jillian, I placed signs at all the convenient stores completely around our neighborhood, including the Family Dollar store. The staff is great about allowing you to post the signs, but if the managers find out, they might be taken down. Also, we put signs at Petsmart, Petco, Maplewood Elementary, the Mosaic, the Greenway Lofts, and both the parks in our neighborhood (Ella Wooten Park, Lake Park, Bartholomew Park, and the park across Airport Blvd). I'd also post info and a picture on: http://www.muelleraustinonline.com/ The Mosaic apts / condo office staff are really nice. They will send an email blast out to their residents for you to keep an eye out. Take a flyer to the Fire Station down the street and send your flyer by email to all the vets and emergency pets’ hospitals in a 5 mile radius. You will also want to regularly (at least every other day) check the Austin Animal Center, Coty of Geargetown Animal Shelter, and the Williamson County Animal Shelters (you don't want to narrow your search when looking online because they often misclassify age, color, sex of dogs; it's better to go to the shelters in person if you are able): Websites: http://www.ci.austin.tx.us/health/pets/lost_pets_search.htm http://pets.wilco.org/LostYourPet/LostFoundForum/tabid/197/Default.aspx http://petsoftheweek.georgetown.org/overview/ Here is a site you can search different shelters and rescue groups by zip code and a specific mile radius: http://www.animalshelter.org/shelters/states.asp I hope this helps you get off to a good start. The sooner you start posting the flyers, the better chances you will have of recovery. I have also attached a flyer templete I entered your info you provided in your original post if you'd like to use you are welcome to. We made similar ones when my dog went missing. If you don't want to offer a reward just yet, you can use the alternate flyer that just says "LOST" at teh top. I've attached both. If the files didn't attach correctly, you can email me at lostpetsatx@gmail.com and I will forward them to you. Let me know if you have any questions. Sincerely, Danyale Bryant

MNA General member meeting 18 June 2011 - minutes
posted by Betsy on June 18th, 2011 12:01 PM
18 June 2011 General Membership Meeting – Mueller Neighborhood Association MNA President, Grant Fisher, opened the meeting which was held at the Browning Hangar. About 30 members attended. – Kerry reported that our current balance is $3996.75. Anticipated EOY balance about $2800. We have 196 current members. : Nominations were solicited over the past two months for the 13 positions on the Steering Committee. Nominees who submitted in time to be included on the paper ballot include: ---- Don Dozier ---- Ashley Fisher ---- Diane Gierisch ---- Corky Hilliard ---- Betsy Hilton ---- Kevin McGillicuddy ---- Candice McKay ---- Travis Michel ---- Dennis Mick ---- Jerry Perkins ---- Shellie Shores ---- Kathy Sokolic ---- Reem Zoun Nominated at the meeting.... none. Write-in votes were also allowed. All 13 candidates were elected with 25 votes received. - Wayne Courreges, District Commissioner with the Armadillo District of Boy Scouts of America, presented information on scouting and sought feedback on the level of interest on creating a Cub Scout pack in Mueller. Mueller would be great location for a Cub Scout pack. Family oriented and the ability to walk to meetings. A great chance for boys to learn leadership and outdoor skills, and about the community. Cub Scouts go 1st - 5th grades. At 6th grades they cross into Boy Scouts. Varshna Narumanchi-Jackson also spoke. She lives in the J J Seabrook neighborhood and is also a boy scout representative. Varshna talked about her experience with two boys in scouting. Who would sponsor (charter) the pack? Could be a church, PTA, or MNA. There may be other options. Once a sponsor is identified, a charter is signed between the organization and BSA. The charter organization picks adult leaders for the pack. To get started, need at least 5 adult leaders and at least 5 scouts. The charter organization also has to have a liaison to BSA. Adults without kids (or young kids) are often very involved. These adults can make a difference in the lives of young boys. All adults take youth protection training. More information on scouting is available at http://www.armadillodistrict.org. Anyone interested in seeing a Cub Scout pack form at Mueller should talk to Grant Fisher or Joe Denton so the level of interest can be determined. - As most know, AISD proposes to construct a district performing arts center near the intersection of 51st & Berkman, within the Mueller development. The MNA sent a letter to the City Council expressing tentative support but with concerns. The PIAC advised the City Council that they were neutral with concerns. Austin City Council approved 7-0 to allow Catellus to sell the land to AISD. AISD is hosting a community meeting on this subject Tuesday, June 21st from 6:30-8 p.m. at Reagan High School. Grant encouraged participation and dialogue with AISD, and said they’ve been responsive on other issues in the past. (Ashley) - - PIAC meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month except July and Dec. - Affordable housing - new DW garden homes almost sold out for the affordable program. Standard Pacific affordable condos in Mueller homes are selling well. Four resales and 4 pending through the foundation. Working out well for sellers (cash in pocket). Buyers of resales can make up to 120% of MFI. - Mueller AE substation under construction at Morris Williams Golf Course. - Looking at bike lane design changes (ultimate) on Mueller Blvd. Possibly separated from traffic. Interim lanes needed... Ashley will bring up to City. - Section 6 buildout next (on North side of Simond, west of Berkman). 221 housing units - some standalone, some garden homes, and first live/work units. No builders announced yet. Very small pocket park and no additional pool. - Lawless block party tonight, including pie contest. Starts at 7:00 p.m. Everyone welcome. - July 4th activities - parade, pool party, Tom Miller block party (even though there are no fireworks). Watch mc.com for more info. - Urban Wildlife & Butterflies: Saturday, 10:00 a.m. - noon in the garden at Mueller Central, there will be a seminar on Urban Wildlife. The City of Austin has a neighborhood challenge program to encourage homeowners to establish urban wildlife habitats. Several homes in Mueller have already been certified, including at least one ROW home. Most houses are pretty easy to certify with minor modification. There will also be a presentation by the Butterfly Forum on setting up a butterfly garden. - Pool committee update (Diane G) - --- 12-1 closing to switch pool from private to public use. If you’re in the pool at 12, you can keep swimming until the lifeguard asks you to leave so they can prepare for public opening. Once asked, please comply with their instructions so they can get their opening duties performed on schedule. --- at 7:00, the lifeguard should ask everyone to leave the gates. Card entry swipe should work again at 7:15 p.m. --- Card reader hasn’t been working between 7:15 and 7:30. Diane will let Jennifer Harvey know. Meeting adjourned about 10:45. Good attendance today!!
Borrow a Kindle?

I am thinking about buying a Kindle for my husband for Father's Day as he is an avid reader but not sure if he will like it or not - it would be such a big change. Could we borrow someone's Kindle for an evening to give it a try to see if he likes it before he invests? Please don't mention to him it may be his Father's Day present though he will probably guess. We are trying to keep it kind of a surprise. Thanks, Dana Williams 740-0136

Are there any current or future Fulmore MS magnet students in Mueller? My daughter Nina is headed to 6th grade there in the Fall. Just received the AISD message that magnet bussing has been saved from the budget cuts. However, I am not aware of where this year the Fulmore pickup is. I imagine it will be the same or similar next year. Thanks for any info, Dana Williams
Are we directly in the flight path for Bergstrom Airport?
posted by Mike Carroll on May 13th, 2011 10:10 AM
"Does anyone remember when Mueller was an active airport? The planes that were landing came in right over IH35 where Best Buy is and it felt like their wheels were going to hit the roof of your car as you passed underneath them. Now that was close AND loud! " Long long ago in high school we had practice at Morris Williams and you could sometimes get a golf ball to move backwards hitting it into the wash behind a plane. The sound the air would make after those huge planes passed and landed was wicked...like the air getting ripped.

We’ll need nominations for SC members in May, for elections in June. Several current SC members are reaching the end of their term limit (3 years) and won’t be eligible to serve next year. Be thinking about who to nominate. – Grant reported that our current balance is about $4300. - Mary Arnett spoke on behalf of C.L.A.S.P., which stands for Citizen Led Austin Safety Partnership.  This organization brings together volunteers and neighborhood leaders who want to address crime prevention and safety at the neighborhood level.  Group of folks got together a year ago to work on crime issues in own neighborhoods. Jack Darby with Krimelabb helped them get together as a way to network with other neighborhoods. Every neighborhood is different - customize for what works for your neighborhood. Mary talked about the variety of Neighborhood Watch types, from the less formal (getting to know your neighbors) to the more formal (organized block captains, telephone trees, block meetings, etc.) For chronic problems, Mary recommended working with our APD District representative. Some neighborhoods have a community safety coordinator who coordinates regularly with APD. Some neighborhoods have hosted Safety Fairs at home improvement stores. Some have neighborhood watch signs they put on vehicles and perform patrols. Barton Hills is an example. CLASP can help with training and organization, networking. They work with APD.

Doing a little kitchen organizing... I have a never opened, Williams Sonoma stainless steel stovetop smoker similiar to that I'd like to sell. $50 Also, an Enclume flush mount pot rack bar from Williams Sonoma with hooks. It is hammered steel color. Wonderful, holds lots of pots and pans, just doesn't fit in this kitchen. $75 If you are interested, let me know and I'll send you photos. Kate
