"Down dismissals, please and slows down trials. Hidalgo, along with County Commissioner Adrian Garcia also want to increase the number of judges and district courts, bring in visiting judges and expand jury operations at NRG. Domingo says there are currently about 100,000 cases pending in the county's criminal justice system, including more than 20,000 that had been pending for over a year. Much of the backlog began nearly four years ago after Hurricane Harvey and it's increased with the rise in violent crime over the course of the pandemic. The proposals are likely to be passed by the Democratic Majority Commissioner's court. I'm Andrew Schneider in Houston. Students across Texas did worse on ST Star exams this year compared to 2019 scores. That's according to test results released this week by the Texas Education Agency. As Claire McInerney reports, the pandemic and remote learning caused a significant dip and performance this spring around 60% of third through eighth graders passed their reading assessment. 61% passed the math test. By comparison, the last time students took the Star test before the pandemic around. 75% of students passed both tests. Texas Education Agency Commissioner Mike McGrath said school districts with a majority of students learning remotely did worse. I think Texas teachers responded heroically to the remote instruction environment. It was just a very difficult environment to teach in. Um, and to support students and throughout the course of the school year, these scores will not be used for any accountability purposes this year. Instead, Morath encourages families and teachers to use them as a tool. I'm Claire McInerny in.

"So let me ask you how easy or how difficult is it? To grow vegetables. Well, it depends on where you live and what you like. And of course you need, son. But if you tell it the right way, If you build a couple of raised beds and you start slow, there is no excuse for not being able to grow. Your own tomatoes, tappers, zucchini, things like that and eat from July to October. Oh, Mike, that sounds fantastic. But a question for you if I want to go completely organic. And start an organic vegetable garden. First of all, How do I know that the soil at my house? Is safe. That's the best part of my method of organic gardening. You're not going to use that crappy soil. You're going to build a raised bed that's a foot high, framed out on top of it and start off with a clean mix of high quality topsoil. Compost and per away, Okay, so far so good and so far still organic. But now what about the vegetable plants themselves? You, Khun! Go do it! Local Garden Center. And you, Khun by two NATO starts that they produced in house, You know, maybe organically, maybe sustainably, maybe chemically, But once you get home, it's the way you treat them. That makes them more Cannick or no. The first year in the compost component on that will feed your plants. I see. I use very little, if any plant food halfway through the season like right now, like in July. You can get a nice organic efficiency. We'd mix at the garden centre and used that to water into the soil around your plans, and they will have the Omri symbol. Oh M R on They may also say organic, but Omri is the organic Materials Research Institute. Anything on that seals approved for use in organic gardening. I see does organic Truly taste better than non organic. Oh, yeah Lettuce grown with chemical fertilizers will have a much higher water content, so water deludes flavor to made his grown with chemical fertilizers. Could have massive amounts of extra water that don't belong in the fruit deluding the flavor you've really never tasted. What a vegetable or salad bring. Or field crop is like until it's been allowed to grow naturally at its own pace without becoming diluted with water. Excellent. Well, Mike, I really appreciate you coming on the show today. And talking about the secrets of creating your own organic vegetable garden. Thank you. My pleasure. Take Mike McGrath, host of you Bet your garden, the television show radio Show and podcast originating at W. L. VT. PBS 39 In Bethlehem, Pennsylvania,.
