Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 1, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta J4 THt HERAID Friday, September 197' HOME OF THE WEEK !--s-, I i-r.y-ii-I j I Textured exterior materials i of wood and brick compliment this neat ranch home. Good de- sign costs no more, and this home combines economy with added luxury touches such as a double garage and powder room. With many windows and slid- ing glass doors to the patio, it has a built-in air of bri.vtness and cheer. The kitchen-family room, combination is 19 feet long, providing a play area for young children within watch- ing distance of a busy home- maker and an eating area tor the whole family. A wide pic- ture window enhances the liv- ing room overlooking the lawn. Conveniently located between the family room and rear door is the powder room. Storage space and a work bench are provided in the garage.

Neglect can cause damage during ivinter n up those garden tools By MR. FIX The shape in which you leave your garden tools this fall is lie you will find them in come next spring. Tile wear snr! iear you gave them this past summer is nothing com- pared to the damage that neg- lect will cause during the win- ter months. What happens in the base- ment, garage or tool shed is that small rust spots turn into bg ones, corrosion sets in, rub- ber decays and wood rots. Easiest way to prevent prob- lems is to put everything away clean. :'i wire brush will get rid of dirt that has accumulated on hoss, spades, rakes and oth- er tools. Use steel wool to clean off rust spots. A little oil will help Once metal surfaces arc clean wipe with an oily rag to pre vent rusting while the tools are 'n storage. Culling edges of spades and iocs should be sharp Use a iio to do the job now and the tools will be ready to use wlth- lut preliminary work next year. Pi-uidng and grass shears generally have a coating of sap 'rom the plants that have been cut. Since this is corrosive, clean it off the blades. Kero- sene is all the solvent you need. Use steel wool on stubborn spots and on rust spots. Oil the working parts and coat with oil after sharpening. Check wooden handles for rough spots, splinters. Sand thtm smooth and then coat the wood with Unseed oil to keep it from doing out. Small cracks can be glued and clamped. Loose handles tight- ened. A large split or a break calls for replacement of the handle. Never paint a wooden handle since this will hide crackirg. Drain the garden hose and allow it to dry before storing. Coil it on a reel or hang it over a hose bracket or a piece of pipe. A hose with water in it may burst during freezing weather. Coiling a hose in cold weather is almost impossible since it is so stiff. Washers in hose fillings, noz- zle and sprinklers should be replaced every year. It's a good Idea lo throw ths old aom away and insert new wasliers. Tools should not be left stand- ing in a corner or tossed into a loose pile. Put up racks they eon be hung neatly. Odds and ends of gardening supples seed, potting should be stored In plastic bags or glass jars or coffee cans and labelled. Painted surfaces that become worn or chipped should be sanded and repainted. a rust-preventive paint. (Newspaper Enterprise Am.)

GYPSY ELECTRON PUMPKINS es, they have a soft stem, which its name? From the Greek a large melon, from to ripen (then easily The Latin form changed from "pepon" to "pom- pon" to "poinpion" to "pump- ion" and pumpkin was reached by changing the ending into the diminutive The name means "mature when cooked by the or ripe. Some people have difficulty In telling the difference be- tween a pumpkin and squash. The easiest way is to look at the stem and the way it is at- tached to it. In pumpkins, the stem is usually hard with a slight enlargement at the point of attachment, while in squash- refers to the yellow, globular lypes of squash. To produce satisfactory, pumpkins require a long, warm glowing season. So far this year, we have not had too much hot weather, until just lately, EC this could help to mature the fruit. For best re- sults, pumpkins should be start- ed in a greenhouse about the beginning of May and set out iinjo the garden after the frosts are over, around tbe early part of June. As they do not take too kindly to transplanting start tbem in Jiffy-Pots or Jif- fy-7s, etc. so Ihc young plants never hnve their root system 1 ONLY SALE 1 RCA RADIO, PHONO, 7V Black nnd White. 5395 SPECIAL 1 ELECTRQHOME RADIO, PHONO, TV Block and Whit..

Select the sun- iest location and one protected rom the cold winds. A well raided spot is also very im- portant. Pumpkins do not usually efore storing, this will not only help to ripen immature specimens but will also help to heal small mechanical injur- ies. If the weather is hot, tliis can be carried out in the gar- den or field. Pumpkins can stand about 3 or 4 degrees of frost in the garden, so leave them to ripen on the vines as long as passible. Stems should be removed before they are put into storage, making sure they do not touch one another. Af- ter cmlng, the temperature is reduced to between 40 and 50 degrees. Perhaps you can save a pumpkin or two for Hal- lowe'cen carving for the chil- dren. Hybrid tea roses have cap-' hired the limelight in the All- America Rose Selections trials this year with three beautiful new varities, Electron, Gypsy and Medallion making a clean sweep of the 1973 awards. In a bright range of colors- pink, scarlet and golden buff, the three winners will be fea- tured in the 112 AARS accredit- ed Public Hose Gardens cat- tercd throughout the United States. Plants of the three award winners will bo offered for the first time this fall at leading nurseries, garden cen- tres, and by the major mail order rose specialists. They mil be labeled with the "green and white oval AAHS tags which distinguish them as ATI-Amer- ica award winners. Electron, Gypsy and Medallion will be featured rose varities next spring by every nursery and mail order house in the United States and Canada. ELECTRON (Patent Applied For) Here is an Irish rose, new to the American public, al- though it has already proved immensely popular in Europe under the name of Mullard Ju- the large, five inch, fully double i roses like orange-red torches- The deep, almost black-red, shapely buds unfurl to high- centred exhibition type blooms, holding their color throughout the life of the blossoms and all the while giving off a light, spicy fragrance. Often the'un- derside of the satiny petals is touched by a deep, dusky scar- let. These petals are large, heavy textured and firm, mak- ing the rose an excellent and lasting cut flower. Typically hybrid tea, the husky hush grows with a vigor that provides an abundance of looms for garden display, aouse and exhibition use, A mantle of leathery, rich greun oliage covers the entire plant and adds to its rugged beauty. The father of Gypsy is Com- anche, a natural to convey to the offspring strong plant road petals of apricot pink. The shapely pointed buds, two to three inches long, are a soft shade of apricot buff, changing .0 a light apricot pink in cool _ fall weather. The delicate col- oring of Medallion varies in In- :cnsity with the weather and season, but is always a pleas- ing, pastel shade with the blooms subly scented with a mild, fruity fragrance. The plant is very vigorous, reaching from four to six feet in height, depending upon the area in which it is grown. Med- allion is erect, well branched, and surprisingly, for a plant with such large blooms, pro- duces an abundance of flowers almost always borne on single stems 12 to 18 inches long. As many as 45 roses have been counted on an individual plant at one time. The light green, oval shaped foliage the plant and has good resistance to disease. WANTED SHOP FOREMAN FOR FORD DEALERSHIP IN SOUTHERN AUWTA Top full company benefits Write to Box 150, Lethbridge Herald HINT: The air is full of aphids at this time and they seem to cling to everything flowers, trees, shrubs and even people. I just finished washing off tile trees, etc. with a good strong spray from the garden hose. Some of the aphids have not developed wings yet and If you can wash these off the plants It does help. However, some spraying might be neces- sary. Use malathion at the of 2 tbsps. of a gallon of water, wetting the leaves thoroughly, especially the under part. bilee. Electron is a bright, rose-pink hybrid tea bearing great quan- tities of large, full, very frag rant roses. The long, pointed buds open to high-centred, well- formed blooms of exhibition quality and are produced on stems of medium length. When cut, the fragrant, open bios soms are long-lasting and hole their color well. Electron Is a bushy grower well covered with dark green foliage down to the ground and bearing many stems of bright pink blooms, delightful in all stages. GYPSY (Patent Applied For) GYPSY, the fiery, orange-red hybrid tea comes from a' long line of famous ancestors whose outstanding qualities seem to have combined to create this in- tensely glowing variety.
