Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THI IITHBRIDOI HIRALD - Friday, March U, 1971 HOME OF THE WEEK This modern design is truly a home for entertaining and outdoor living. It has a most interesting layout. The living . area with its open planning I makes this portion an attrac- ' tive social centre, yet the Kitchen is effectively closed off by the o p e n fireplace and the glass wall behind the counter. Traffic to all parts of the house is excellent, and extends through the hobby room to the garage, patio and outdoor barbecue. All rooms are extra large making this a Home to be proud of. Construction is brick and stone veneer. HOMOGRAF CO.

( NAME .. ADDRESS (Left.) LIME IN ALBERTA SOILS YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. erica or from Europe expect Alberta soils to need lime. THIS IS NOT SO. Many garden soils in Alberta, especially in the Calgary, Lethbridge and surrounding areas, suffer from an excessive lime - a condition which cannot be satisfactorily treated chemically." In eastern Canada and the eastern United States, on the west coast and in most areas of the British Isles, liming is an accepted and necessary gardening practise because their soils are too acid for proper plant growth. Our soils, on the other hand, are all somewhat alkaline. Although the top six inches of some of our soils may be neutral or even slightly acid, they all become alkaline as one goes deeper and at 18 to 24 inches from the surface, they are all moderately to strongly alkaline. This is an important factor, because while COILS in Alberta, especial-� ly in the Calgary, Lethbridge and Brooks area have some free lime in their surface layers and large amounts in their lower areas. Each year, around gardening time, I have people asking how much lime they should apply and when should this be done. As far as the areas mentioned above are concerned, unless your soil has been tested and shows it requires lime, NONE is needed. This is an excerpt taken from Publication No. 30, Soils and Fertilizers for Alberta Gardens and Lawns. This may be obtained from your District Agriculturist or from the Department of Extension, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta. "Lime and Other Nutrients - People coming to Alberta from the eastern parts of North Am- Up-date kitchen with new cabinets If you want to modernize your kitchen with base and wall cabinets, the entire job can now be accomplished for only the cost of materials. The book offered below spells out every step of planning, building and installation. Whether you do part, all or none of the actual work, substantial savings can be effected when you know "how" the job is done. Simplified directions, plus over 67 illustrations, take all the mystery and much more than half the cost out of kitchen modernization. Because kitchens vary in s i �/. o and shape, and every home presents a different combination of conditions, step-by-step illustrations show how to modernize without moving sink, range and refrigerator; also suggest relocation to obtain u more efficient operation. Floor plans illustrate and explain 1 he L-shape kitchen along two walls, the U-shape on three walls, as well as the best working arrangement for cabinets and equipment along four walls. The corridor type on two walls as well as the one-wall apartment kitchen is also covered. Directions explain how to handle a low window, relocate a door, build a passthrough, convert two rooms into a country-style kitchen. Send $1.50 in cash, or money order for Book No. 658, How to Build Kitchen Cabinets to Carpentry Dept., The lethbridge Herald, Box SOS Adelaide St. P.O. Toronto l, Ont. Editor's Note - The Herald does not handle theso blueprints and it is necessary to send requests for them to the above address in Toronto. Please write the address as printed. (Copyright 1371 Toronto Star Syndicate) some of our plants are very shallow - rooted, most send down roots much deeper than people imagine. Recently, a number of people were asked how deep carrots send down their roots, and the answers ranged from 6 to 18 inches. Ac tually it is 30 inches and pos sibly more. This same thing applies to most of our vegetables, annuals and perennials, and most certainly our trees and shrubs, so the majority of a plant's roots are in alkaline soil. Observant gardeners will have noticed a condition in plants which is referred to as 'lime induced chlorosis'. The plants grown in high lime soils have a marked yellow coloring to the leaves between the veins, and sometimes they become al-m o s t white. What happens is the lime makes the iron in the soil insoluble and so it is unavailable to the plant. Without iron, the green coloring of the leaves (chlorophyll) cannot be produced, and without this plant food cannot be produced. Treatment of chlorosis is difficult. Spraying the leaves with a 1 per cent solution of ferrous sulphate at intervals of two to three weeks during the summer gives temporary improvement. However, this may be accompanied by burning of the foliage. Iron chelates are also sold for this purpose. Use Sequestrine according to directions. Good results are also obtained by incorporating large quantities of peat moss and animal manures into the soil, working them down deeply. Powdered sulphur, at the rate of two pounds per 100 square feet may also be worked into the soil, which will slowly neutralize the excess alkaline material. * * * Mr. P. - Could you recommend some fast growing vines? I have an archway and a trellis I would like to train some on. Ans. - You might consider the following which are fairly fast growing: Virginia Creeper, Golden Clematis and Bittersweet. Any question should be sent in writing with a sell-addressed, stamped envelope to - Mrs. I. Ft. Young, 3620 Centre B St. N.W. Calgary 43. Start the garden inside, save time By SHEILA AND ALLAN SWENSON This year be prepared for spring. Look over the calendar now and plan a countdown for more enjoyable and productive outdoor gardening. Starting seeds today is much easier than ever. New developments help you produce more good plants for use outdoors when the right time arrives. Peat pots are excellent' to start seeds indoors and get the jump on spring. These molded pots usually are impregnated with soluble fertilizer to give seedlings that important early boost. Other types come in trays with divisions to be cut apart for transplanting. Fertl cubes are easiest still. They feature blended SENSES All insect senses function through organs far different from ours. The main organs of smell for insects are the antennae. They contain olfactory pits or cones that enable the insects to detect odors. Spring house check By MB. FIX Weather is rougher on a house than people. Living in a house doesn't wear it out but a bad winter will age it considerably. Inspect your house and plan for repairs as soon as you can in the spring. Look the place over as soon as the snow is gone and start whatever work you can as the weather allows. If repairs are made quickly you can prevent' greater damage and more costly repairs later on. Sidewalks, driveways, foundations and mortar joints take a beating from bad weather. Hairline cracks in masonry last fall are much larger now. This is due to the cracks filling with moisture which then froze and expanded. Clean away all loose material. Dig out cracks so that they are wider on the bottom than at the surface. Moisten the inside of the crack and the surface to be repaired. Fill with concrete patch (use a mix to which you add water) and keep moist for several days. After you have the crack filled, finish with a wood float for a rough surface, a metal trowel for a smooth surface. Do not attempt masonry repairs if temperatures are still dipping into the freezing zone. Examine mortar joints in brick work carefully. Clean out loose mortar, soak the area, fill with fresh mortar, then smooth out the mortar with a pointing tool. Gutters and downspouts are often in bad shape in the spring just when you need them most. This interferes with the pitch of the gutter, causing water to stand instead of flowing. Tighten the metal straps that hold the gutters in place. If spikes were used, remove and renail where necessary. Clean out the dirt that has accumulated during the winter. Sand, prime and paint rust spots as soon as weather is warm enough. Damaged areas should be repaired with the same kind of metal or fiberglass. Coat title patch with roof cement. Take a good look at the roof. You may find that shingles are loose, torn or even missing. If the pitch of the roof is steep or you are not sure-footed, call in a roofing contractor. Those broken shingles that are low down or on a garage roof you may want to tackle yourself. Cover nail heads with roof coating as you go along. Even if you calked in the fall, check around door and window frames for bad spots in the calking. Repair these before heavy spring rains. Check the trees around your house for broken limbs. Cut away those you can reach. Call in an expert for the others. Fences may be sagging due to posts that have rotted or which have hcavxd because they were not properly set. Rotten posts have to be replaced. Treat the ends with wood preservative. Posts will not remain firm if not set deeply enough. Figure 18 to 24 inches deep or one-third the heigh t of the post if it is not to be affected by wind and weather. Set posts about six feet apart. If the soil is clay or fairly firm just compact the earth around the base. In loose soil, set in concrete, building it up so that it is above grade so water will run off. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) moss, plant food and vermic-ulite with a slight depression in which you place the seeds. Big advantage of cubes or pots is easy transplnr'ing without shock, since you don't disturb the roots. You simply plant pot and seedling in the soil outdoors. Roots grow right through. For apartment dwellers, the Jiffy 7 is handy. These are compacted, filled peat pots. Add water and they enlarge to seven times their size. You add seed, water and have instant gardens on windowsills, porch or patio. Special mini-greenhouses are available too. After planting the individual pots in trays, the clear plastic domes or hoods of units like Merry-Gro hold moisture where sprouting seedlings need it. Most major seed firms now offer this type starter kit to help make gardening foolproof even for beginners. Sterilized planting mixes are helpful too in preventing damping-off disease of young plants. Every year new aids for better gardens are introduced. Your local garden centre can provide the latest innovatons for you this season. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
