Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 31, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta YOUR GARDEN By habelle R. F.R.H.S. PEAR SLUGS I just recently finished spray- ng my Cotoneaster shrubs and ledges and Mountain Ash to jrotect against pear rhese pests have become quite active in the last few years in jertain areas. In the slack and yellow adult saw- flies emerge from the ground and Jay their eggs in the leaves if plants. In a few these latch into the typical pear which often go rhey are dark green to yel'ow- ish-orange in about one- lalf inch and slimy. They Belong to the same order as wasps and ants. They also attack plum and almost skeletonizing some of the leaves. In two to three weeks larvae drop to the ground ivhere they burrow in and pu- pate inside resulting in adults making their appear- ance around the end of July and into August. Pear slugs t_-e not like the ordinary slugs that invade gar- coming out on dull days Mr at night and eating leaves and etc. Pear slugs eat only the upper surface of the causing the plants to assume a scorched color and the leaves to finally drop. If there is any sign of pear slug in your district it would be irise to do something about it using malathion or nicotine sulphate Leaf using according to di- rections on covering the surface of all leaves and stems. This should help to con- trol but sometimes a sec- ond application is the proper measures are not mdertaken the infestation will become worse each year. The damage that these slimy pests do to trees and hedges causes a person's yard to look very un- sightly. The defoliation of fruit trees and the subsequent re- duction in fruit yield can be a serious problem. Besides dam- aging these pests get on fences and walls and could ac- cidentally brush off onto which is not too pleasant. Someone asked me the other day when was the best time to pick vegetables. I suppose peo- ple have their own but here are some recommen- dations. Beets are usually more lasty when harvested at medium size. When grown too with rough ridges or they are likely to be tough. Carrots have a higher sugar content in mature specimens and keep better than the small- younger ones. for eating fresh or the small ones are preferred. Par- snips require a frost to bring out or improve the flavor. Me- dium sized roots are best as too large ones tend to become woody. Radishes grow quite ra- pidly and do not stay useable too long. Pick when large enough to otherwise they soon become soft and pithy. Turnips should be a moderate size and their flavor is also im- proved with a light frost. Beans are a favorite and grow in most gardens. They tire best picked when the pods are 1-3 to while the seeds inside are still immature. The pods should snap readily and be free from strings. Broc- co'i should be cut when the buds are compact and before they start to open up showing the yellow color of the flowers. Include part of the stem when cooking as this is quite deli- cious. After the main head is secondary heads will ap- pear in the axil of the giving a fairly long season of harvest. Brussels Sprouts are delicious but are not as much grown as other vegetables. To be at their best the little heads should be hard and firm and a nice bright green color. A light frost improves the flavor. Cab- bages shou'd be firm when squeezed. Cauliflower should be and without leaves growing through the curd. Yel- low leaves indicate over-matur- ity or Irak of water. Corn is picked while the ker- nels are still in the milk usually when the silk begins to turn dark brown and shrivel. Do not pick if the kernels are small and soft as flavor wi'l be lacking. When ready to the pods of peas are a bright green and fairly well filled. Daily picking is desirable as they lose their sugar content rapidly even on the Po- tatoes may be dug and used While the tops are still green. For the tops should be left to die down. Boat building considerably eased Until building a boat required considerable ex- perience with tools and a lot of imagination. thanks to marine fast setting waterproof glue and an easy-to- follow pattern method of con- everyone can make like a boat-building pro.

Toronto Star By FIX One of the cheapest and most effective methods of protecting your home from rot and drafts is calking it. Calking compound is inex- pensive and you need no par- ticular skill to apply it. The problems that would result without calking would be far more expensive and difficult to cure. You can calk any time you like so long as the tempera- ture is above 40 degrees. The ideal time is before painting. In calking is a must be- fore you paint. All new con- struction should be calked. But there are in-between times for calking and you should do it whenever you feel it is needed. Calking compound is a sub- stance not unlike putty. It is more pliable than putty how- ever and it is used to seal cracks and joints. While calk- ing lasts a long it should be checked now and then and replaced in spots where it has dried out or shrunk and a gap is once more open. Apply calking around win- dow and door between window sill and be- tween siding and vertical cor- ner between the siding and the top of the between steps and door- sill and between chimney and roof. Fill every joint you can find anywhere in your house that might be exposed to the weath- er. Calk ing compound is avail- able in inexpensive cartridges which slip into a calking gun for easy application. The car- tridge has a plastic nozzle. The tip of this is cut and a steady pull on the trigger of the calking gun forces out a CHECK AND CALK. PROBIEM SPOTS WHEN YOU FEEL IT'S NEEDED 'M thin stream of calking. Keep a steady pressure on the trigger to insure an ken stream'. Keep the gun moving so that the bead of calking doesn't tend to pile up. Make certain the opening is covered. Calking will adhere to almost any surface metal. It adheres best when the surface is clean. Scrape off old calking. Use a brush to get rid of loose particles. A rag soaked in turpentine or paint thinner can be used to remove the film left by old calking. If you are calking un- treated apply some lin- seed oil to the wood first. This will keep the wood from draw- ing all the oil out of the com- causing it to dry out and crumble. Do not calk over wet wood. Allow it to dry out a few days. Calking can be used for mi- nor repairs. Use it to fill cracks in wood rotted spots that have been first cleaned out. Scrape away decayed wood. Make cracks wider at the bot- tom than at the surface so that the calking will not pull out. Checking the condition of the calking is a good chore before a change in notably spring and fall. Calking keeps warm air in and cold air out in helps insulate the house in sum- mer. It keeps moisture from seeping in during a rain.
