Hold each slem direct- ly ot'er a gas or candle flame for about 2o seconds, or until the cm end is scared well. Do immediately after cutting and then place in cold water. The Iceland poppy (P. nudi- caule) has always been a fav- diseased The mower (ears Hie grass instead of cul- ling and the ragged edges turn brown. The reel mower, power or hand-propelled, generally needs adjusting ralher than sharpen inR. The blades should just meet Ihe cutting bar along its entire length. The best way lo check this is to insert a sheet of newspaper between blades and cutting bar. The paper should be cut along its entire length. There are screws or Ihumb nuts a( each end of (he cutler bar. Use these for adjusting. Hake Ihe adjustments slowly. Too much and you will have Ihe knife out of line Check ad- jiislmcnt .several times during the summer and do it every time you get tangled up with a piece of wire, dead limbs or rocks. Rotary mowers don't need adjusting, just sharpening. The blade is removed by removing the nut on Ihe center shaft. Keen nut and washers in proji- cr order so you can replace them correctly. Before removing the blade or doing any work on a power mower disconnect the spark plug. All you havc io do is pull the wire off and prevent if from springing back lo make accidental contact. Leaving Ihc: plug connected could cause Ihe mower lo start as the blade is turned and serious accidents could occur. Put the blade in a vise and sharpen wilh a fine file. While the blade is off Ihe mower check its balance. a blade gets nicked or worn, it gels out of balance and can set up excessive vibration, damaging the mower. It yen find the blade out of balance, give the heavy end a little exira filing. While you arc at it, check a few other things on your power mower. Spark plugs should be check- ed for excess carbon. Remove the plug and scrape carefully j with a knife. It's a good idea to check the gap selling if you have Ihe tool for it. Your er's manual should be followed, i A badly burned or cracked plug should be replaced. Keep a spare on hand. Check Ihe fuel tank before you start. You can start wilh a small amount of gas but jou cannot get very far Filling a hot mower is dangerous, wait for it to cool. Best tiling is to fill up before you even start. Check the vent in the gas cap to sec that it isn't plugged. Air cleaners should be check- ed frequently. or steel wool elements should be rinsed ill kerosene or ga-oline in a well-ventilated area.
