Having spring just around the corner the time is right to check the lawn mower to make certain it’s going to accomplish its activity when the right moment will come. Remember that it is sitting down within the storage all cold months and not a soul ignited it up or just looked at it. It does not matter what kind of lawnmower you could have, push, electric, gas, riding, tractor or any of the parts should be cleaned and checked. Even if your own lawn mower is several years old or simply a year old a lawn mower part can wear out and demand replacement.
If you may be going to get your very first lawn mower choose cautiously. Due to the fact that in each and every other big item of equipment you’d obtain to the inside of the house, research before you buy. Discover what is actually guaranteed and for how long. How long will that brand of lawnmower perform for. Life time guarantees hardly stipulate if that’s your own lifetime or the actual item’s life span. Similar to humans and house animals the lawnmower contains a life span and it is best to know what which may be before you purchase this. What sort of lawnmower would you like or require? The market offers almost everything from robotic lawnmowers which perform all the work for you to tractor lawn mowers for that big garden. The robotic lawn mower will be the hottest in lawn mower technology. As it performs continually from the moment it’s triggered right up until it’s halted a lawn mower part may need to be replaced more often compared to every other lawn mower. Don’t be fooled because of the size of the lawnmower and whether or not it’s going to require parts more regularly than a big tractor lawnmower that might need lesser number of replacements compared to the push lawnmower. It all relies on the amount and how often the mower is used.
A lawnmower part might have to be swapped out since it worked very hard using a dull blade. The actual blade of the mower should be sharpened frequently. If this becomes dull as well as used it’ll have to be changed to be an improved cut with less effort. All of the lawnmower components should be tested often.

Photo by Gene Middleton CHAMPION SOW AND LITTER Charles Finley’s pet Hampshire sow, Lois Ray Key, and her 13 children are entered in the 1939 4-H sow and litter club in Vermilion county. On Moy 13 the litter, farrowed Mar. 17, weighed 561 lbs. at 57 days of age. Heaviest pig 471/2 lbs., lightest 30. The pigs have national cham- pionship ancestry on both sides. but Mrs. Finley or Jessie Louise will tell you that the hogs are a Berkshire and Hampshire cross, which, they will add, makes a very good market hog. But, then, hogs are a specialty at the Finley farm. Charles’ winning grand champion litter was of regal parentage, the off- spring of High Score, a grand champion at the International. One litter of these hogs, Mr. Finley insists will make more money than all the chickens Mrs. Finley could raise as a side line. Therefor they have chickens only for their own use, caponize the cockerels and sell a few eggs. Money from eggs, butter and cream sold to a few regular customers is used to provide little extras for the home and family. Music lessons for Jessie Louise, a small electric butter churn, an electric water heater are examples. "Boys and girls want to live active, busy, happy, lives. I want to be busy and active with them. I want to enjoy them and enjoy living with them. If being good fathers and mothers is an art, let’s learn more about it. Let it not be said that the parent problem is a greater one than the youth problem, " says Mrs. Finley. Home Bureau Editor: 1 have read with pleasure your interesting articles in the RECORD.

Bouquets In The Barnyard The hardest work is dodging work. Do those odd repair jobs now. JULY. 1939 ^/^^ HE resourcefulness and in- ^*~Y^ genuity of the early pioneers J probably was no greater than that of the farm woman of today. "If there is no other place for the zinnias and asters, let’s put them in the barnyard," said Mrs. C. E. Scott, Piatt county Home Bureau member. And, like the little red hen, she did. Not only did she bring bright blos- soms, gay colors, and fragrant odors to this usually drab spot of the farm homestead, but she made of it a family recreation spot as well. Climbing roses cover part of the low whitewashed fence that incloses the pinks, petunias, gladiola, hollyhocks and all the others growing around the edge of the grassy spot located not quite half way between the barns and the road. The Black Prince petunias grew so tall last summer they reached as high as the fence and peered out at passersby. A wooden tub sunken in their midst, no longer goes by that name but now is the pool in the rock garden. Several large yard chairs, painted green, and a roomy swing in- vite the garden worker to rest and visit with a neighbor on how to keep the bugs off the delphinium. This barnyard garden, for so it real- ly is, like the watermelon vine, grew under and over and through the fence of the vegetable garden. Too many plants were left over from the rows allotted to Mrs. Scott where she might have marigolds instead of turnips. After she had tucked verbenas in the spot be- tween the walks, filled a border along the fence with cockscomb, and brightened up the corner along the house with cannas, even then pansies and larkspur were left over. As she says, she reached out for the barnyard. When Mr. and Mrs. Scott moved to the 240 acre farm which they have rented for 22 years, the muddy lot bor- dering the houseyard was used for feed- ing stock. Several years of consistent sowing of timothy were necessary be- fore a stand of grass was substantial enough to warrant the lawn mower. Last year when they laid out the diag- onal shaped plot for the garden, the plan was to use annual flowers for a while. "We had to spade deep in the begin- ning and we must spade deep this year to keep down the weeds. Perennials might be disturbed. Some things will come again this year, however, and gradually we will work into more of that. In order to start the garden with particularly strong and pretty ones, last year I bought the petunia and snap- dragon plants. Gladiola bulbs too, run back to one color after a few years, so I try to add at least two dozen new ones each year. I always keep these separate and mark them carefully from the others. Three bushels of bulbs, in- cluding the dahlias, now are in the basement for planting. We use all varieties of the old-fashioned flowers. They make lovely bouquets." When the milking of 10 to 15 cows is finished, the Scotts find time to spade and plan in the garden. In the early morning Mrs. Scott likes to do the weeding. She says working with the
