Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 28, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, February 28, 1975 Your Garden My favorite vegetables HOME OF THE WEEK By ISABiaLE II. YOUNG F.H.II.S. I like mosl all vegetables, but this week 1 would like to tell you about some of my (avoriles. Number one, in my es- timation, is the carrot. It is rich in vitamin A and natural sugar ami low in calories, lias a mosl pleasant lasle and is easily digested hence ils popularity. The foliage is also quite attractive and may be used lo good advantage in flower arranging. When the carrots were first brought to England, stylish ladies would decorate their hair with the feathery leaves. Carrots require a deeply dug, rich, sandy loam. II Iherc are loo many lumps, carrots will be short and fork out. Sow seeds no deeper lhaii a halt inch. Seeds are somewhat slow lo germinate and some people will sow a row of radish in between rows. If soil is dry at lime of seeding, it is a good idea lo give a light sprinkling of waler. As the carrots grow the thiniiings may be boiled, skin and all. Some reliable varieties I have good success '.vith include Touchon, Red Cored Chantenay. and Scarlet Nantes, Delicious raw. Means also rale high with me. either bush or climbing, and if picked frequenlly will produce bountifully over a lung period. Blue- Lake is one of the earliest climbers and I prefer it over all other varieties. II is heavy yielding, excellent for freezing and the Carpentry Corner Heirloom doll house Everyone seeking relief from tension and a few precious hours where the mind finds peace, should build one of these heirloom quality doll houses. Every minute invested in building offers ins- tant escape. The results provide a big bonus. The light in the eyes of the recipient provides an unforgettable memory.

The Scarlet Runner is ten to twelve days lalcr and Ihe vines make a very dccoralive covering wilh their red flowers. I prefer the flavor of Hlue Lake over these. Ulue Lake flush is also a mosl desirable vegetable in any garden. If a garden is small. beans are ideal, as they require only a minimum of space. In Hie dwarf or bush varieties my favorite is Harvester. II is heavy yielding, the pods are round and smooth and the color, after cooking, is slill an attractive green. Tendergreen and Speculator are excellent varieties. Broad Beans arc also quite lasly and as the seed is very hardy il may be sown early in Ihe spring when the soil is warm and workable. These are not as fasl growing as regular bush beans, but if you have never tried them, you are missing a treat Of the yellow or wax varieties, 1 don't know what my preference would be I Ihink Pencil Pod Wax would be one, and Kinghom Wax the other. They are both "lops" in my eslimalion. For better germination, always plant bean seeds with eyes down Some people prefer spinach, but I always look forward in early summer when the chard is ready for picking. To me il is a much more economical crop to plant than spinach it lasts practically all season summer lo lale fall, and wilh around six lo eight plants, spaced 10 inches apart this should be adequate fora fami- ly of three or four. Cut the leaves as they grow and new ones will keep producing, even after a light frost. A colorful variety is Rhubarb Chard, with .Iranslucenl red slalks lhal makes an unusual, color- ful specimen when placed in a flower border. Everybody loves lomaloes I don'l Lhink 1 remember a year when my garden didn'l have al leasl one variety. I have grown many and Ihe ones I like, as lo flavor and productivity are Starfire fairly large, sweet and juicy; Fantastic really was "fan- tastic" as to size; Rocket wilh smaller tomatoes; Orange Queen a low acid type One I'm really partial to is Patio Hybrid ideal for tubs or1 garden and very prolific. Cos lelluce is "lops" as a salad green. My dad grew it, over all other varieties, so perhaps lhal is why I have such a liking lor il. Onions add so much lo recipes, bul a relalive I like better is the leek It isaclual- ly milder and is tolerated more easily by some people who cannol eat onions. Giant Mussclburgh. while laler lhan some, is my choice. Leeks can be used the same way as onions. If Swede turnips are grown properly they are quite delicious. They do require a fair amount of room between plants at least eight inches and rows three feet apart. A good frost is necessary to bring out the sweet flavor. The Laurentian is the variety 1 have grown for years. Some varieties that are more tolerant to disease Beans Tendergreen, Ken- lucky Wonder. Beet Octroi I Dark Red, Carrot Red Cored Chanlenay, Cauliflower Snowball. Lettuce Black seeded Simpson. White Boston. Onion Yellow diode Danvers. Peas Telephone. Radish Cherry Bell, White Icicle, Swiss Chard Lucullus.

Fiji- appliances easy to fix Sometimes the cost of ser- vicing appliances is so high thai il seems smarler to buy a new appliance especially when it's a small one than to have it repaired. But this isn't practical and it really isn't economical; For one thing, repairs are less likely to be needed wilh regular maintenance. And secondly, the remedy for a problem may turn out lo be quite sim- ple if you know what to look for. Read manufacturer's instructions thoroughly. Be sure to save them. Look for maintenance instructions amounl ol lubrication and how often, certain wearable parts (washers, light bulbs, elc.) thai you can replace yourself. Nexl, look for the trouble By Gene Fawcelto rooi-Cfiesr CABPEMTERS OR MECHANICS WHO WEAR THE NEW MA5- NEtlC VEST, ALWAYS HAVE THEIR TOOL'S WITHIN EASV REACH. AN TOOLS, WEIGHING UP TO 55 POUNDS, ARE MELD IN PL ACE INVetfTlOU ALSO HAS POCKETS FOB shooting list. This will describe a variety of troubles and the likely remedies if a part failure is not involved. Most of these lists contain similar advice. Certain checks are automatic with almost all appliances. When an electrical appliance [ails to work, check the cord and the electrical connections. The plug may be worn. Maybe the prongs are bent and won't fit snugly in the outlet. Check the outlet itself. A neon tester or a pig Lail sockel is used to test an outlet but you can do just as well with a night light or some other lamp that has been working properly. Don't rule out the possibility of a blown fuse. If the circuit is overloaded, try removing one or more items from that circuit. Check the cord. Even though it isn't frayed or broken there may be a short in it If the appliance or lamp goes on and off as you move the cord this is the Irouble. Bend Ihe cord a short section al a lime until you find the part that causes the trouble. Old cords are better replaced than repaired. Check the point at which the cord is connected to the appliance. The connection might be loose or broken. Extension cords should be checked the same way. A further problem with exten- sions is that they may be too long and light weight. Motor driven appliances may slow down as a result of a power drop resulting from such an extension. Try plugg- ing Ihe appliance directly into the outlet. CHECK CORD AND PLUG KECP MOTORS CLEAN TEST WALL OUTLET CHECK REFRIGERATOR POOR FOft WORN GASKET When a motor runs hot or slow il could be lack of lubrication. Follow manufac- turer's instructions but generally small appliances can be tended to with a drop of light machine oil at each oil- ing poinl each lime. Large motors need oiling once or twice a year. Don't try to get at a motor in a sealed housing. It is self lubricating. Don't over oil. Oil only al regular oiling poinls, not in every opening you can find. Keep motors clean since dirt can cause heating. Check belts on belt driven appliances. Frayed belts can cause slipping. A broken belt will brin'g' total stoppage. Some vacuum cleaners have a belt to lurn a brush and Ihis may need frequent replacement. A vacuum cleaner with a full bag will not pick up. Emp- ty bags frequently. A refrigerator that runs loo long may be leaking air around the door gasket. Close the door on a sheet of paper. If you can pull il out without opening the door the gasket is worn. A refrigerator near a stove or radiator will not work efficiently so consider loca- tion when it doesn't run right.
