Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta HOME OF THE WEEK Friday, March 30, 1973 - TH1 IETHBRIDGE HERALD - ft DESIGN R3-4M The spacious ranch style home Illustrated was architecturally designed with custom features both indoors and out, to provide comfort, convenience .and luxury features. Basically a three-bedroom house, the folding wall between the two front bedrooms can be eliminated if desired, to form one large master bedroom and a powder room en suite. As a folding wall, it can be left open during the day- to give the area a luxurious appearance. Both dining room and kitchen have glass doors to the sheltered garden terrace. Privacy on the terrace is provided by a large outdoor, storage compartment, on one end and a wood trellis oh the other. A folding door between the dining area and kitchen added space when desired without the disadvantages of the "all-in-one" plan. Closet space abounds with additional storage space in the large garage, a wall divider in the dining-living area is designed for china and books. An overhanging roof line provides good _ shelter for the entrance and it I extends right round to the front I of the garage. This design can , be had with or without a base- I ment. A conversion guide included with first sets of any of I our plans gives instructions for I building in either brick veneer . or frame. | Salad garden guide There's aa Increasing emphasis on salad crops in present day vegetable gardens, and it's hardly surprising since salads form such an important part of summertime meals. Growing your own salad ingredients not only saves money, but ensures a flavor and crispness imjpossi b\ to match from the store. As a guide to the successful cultivation of a salad garden, here are some tips on growing the top-five salad varieties. Beets. Seed of beets is easy to handle, and most varieties are extremely easy to grow. Sow seed as soon as you can work in the garden, spacing the seeds individually 2% in. apart. Since beets mature quickly, it Is best to make succession sowings two months apart so you can harvest three or more crops each year. Lettuce* This kind of salad vegetables loves cool weather Loosehead lettuce is the easiest and quickest to grow, requiring just six weeks from seed to harvest. Head lettuce takes twice as long, but has that crisp, brittle J'iceberg" texture which adds body to salads. If Caesar Salad is your favorite, then Cos lettuce is the variety to plant. Radish. Fastest of all vegetables to grow from seed, radishes prefer the cool weather of spring and fall, and they like to grow quickly in rich soil. Many radish varieties will ma ture within four weeks. Choose between red and white, round or tapered. The seed packet or catalogue description will tell you whether it is mild or pungent. Cucumbers. If your space is limited you can grow cucumbers up trellis, or substitute zucchini squash, which has a bush habit and tastes the same sliced raw. Plant cucumber seeds after danger of frost in a rich soil, and if you don't have a particular favorite, try a new hybrid called "Burpless." It has a delicious flavor, and real ly does live up to its name. Chives. Any mixed salad bowl falls flat without chopped chives sprinkled through it. Growing fresh clumps from seed is easy if you have none in your garden to divide up. It takes 80 days to produce a healthy dump from seed, but they are a perennial and will multiply, readily. Trapper stories are ridiculed Hudson's Bay Company trappers were the first Europeans to see Plains Indians hunting buffalo from horseback. Their accounts were ridiculed by officials and settlers who were convinced that Indians couldn ride. FOLDINS M. BEDROOM tfEDROOM ll'-5� ll*-7* fl'-4*l|i PORCH DESIGN R3-484 1256 Sq.' Ft.

NAME ADDRESS -TIJ 3Z7 Carvings saved from destruction Some of the finest carvings of antiquity survive today because the Persian capital of Persepolis was hacked in 331 B.C. A thousand years later, when Moslems occupied the ruins, they destroyed all sculpture they found because their faith forbade images. They missed the ones buried in the rubble which were not found until dug up by archeologists in the 20th century. Prepare beds for plants By Sheila and Allan Swenson NEA Garden Columnists Whether you buy started plants or grow them from seed, here's how to have success with bedding plants. Spread in an inch layer of humus such as well-rotted manure, compost, leaf mold or combinations on the future flower beds. Add two pounds ground limestone per hundred square feet to sweeten the soil. If you prefer fertilizer, follow the directions in the commercial type you buy. Remember, too much is worse than too little. Dig or till the beds 8 to 10 inches. Rake soil level and set out the plants to judge their spacing and effect. Peat tray or pot grown plants should be placed in holes dug in the soil deep enough to cover the entire pot or tray section. If you must transplant, cut plant roots evenly. Tuck roots well into soil and firm it around each plant. Don't cover lower stems and leaves. Space dwarf plants in the foreground, generally 6 to 8 inches apart. Place medium tall plants 12 to 14 inches apart Position tall plants in the background 16 to 18 inches apart. Water the plants once a day when first set out. After that, soak to a soil depth of 6 inches weekly in cool weather, more often during drought periods. Mulch preserves soil moisture and' thwarts weeds. Peat moss lodes nice, but grass clippings, compost, - leaf mold also add valuable humus. As young plants take hold, pinching tops encourages better branching and production of more flowers on tall growing types. Dwarf varieties and newer, profuse flowering hybrids seldom need this extra care. Follow a regular program of soil building. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. BEAUTIFYING THE | HOME GROUNDS The selection and planting of trees and shrubs, etc. is a major part of the beautification of the home and community. During the summer, trees provide shade to keep the house cooler, while in winter, they provide shelter from the winds. They also soften the outline of a house, provide shelter for people and birds. As well as many other uses they put on a wonderful display of leaves, flowers and berries. living becomes more enjoyable and property values increase with the presence of properly selected and placed trees, etc. For those who are contemplating landscaping their property it will soon be time to start thinking about a few things. In making the selection of plants there are certain things to consider. Buy from a reliable source. A wise man once said, "It's unwise to pay too much, but it's unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money; that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it's well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better." You should know what are good specimens and what are bad. When you have made your choice read up about them to make 'sure they are hardy for the part of the country they are to grow in. There are too many trees and shrubs, etc. that will not survive our winters, but are still being sold to an unsuspecting and often inexpert public. There are books that contain information giving a complete list of what and where to plant In the book "Better Ways To Successful Gardening In West era Canada," of which I am the co-author, there is a very complete and detailed description of deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs that should be of great help to those who have landscaping in mind. This is obtainable from the Lethbridge Herald and possibly some of the larger department stores at $3.95, plus .30 cents If sent through the mail. Your selection should be based on the eventual height of the plant, type of root hystem, shape, rate of growth, resistance to insects and disease, hardiness, availability, and such characteristics as flowers, fruit, summer color, and fall color. Consideration should be given to shade, privacy and your outdoor living area. Also, what effect the plants will have on your flower beds and lawns. Care must be taken to prevent endangering houses and modern facilities by improper planting. Do not place under low, overhead wires, directly in front of doors, windows, or near drainage or sewer lines, or too close to driveways or walks or overhanging the house. Improper placing and incorrect planting can cause roof and electrical wire damage, broken windows, clogged drains and gutters and heaved sidewalks and driveways. Before you plant- PLAN. In this way you will achieve what you want and be more satisfied. Smaller plants are more easily established and less expensive than larger ones. When buying shrubs, try some of these quality tests - The root system should be profuse, flexiblei even! (not lop* sided) and undamaged. An undesirable specimen will havs small, thin, dry, stiff roots, torn and split. Very long tap roots may have been cleanly shortened, which is alright. Wood, which is thin, gnarled, dry and hard will not do well. If tt� right trees, etc. are selected and properly placed, you will enjoy them for years. TIP: This year, why not "Grow To Give." When planting vegetables or flowers, why not put in a few extra and give them to an elderly neighbor or-person oh their own. I am suit such things would be much appreciated in this ever increasing cost of living era. Garlic potent lily member Garlic, Allium sativum to botanists, belongs to the lily family and grows in the ground as a bulb, like its cousin the onion. One-millionth of an ounct can be sniffed in the air. America's garlic kingdom centres on three counties around Gilroy, Calif., where 73 million pounds were grown and harvested by hand in 1970.
