Master Gardener Extending the Season-There are a number of things you can do to reduce frost damage. When possible, plan your landscape with hardy plants. Use the more fragile plants as summer displays or fillers. Next, know your garden. Some areas are warmer than others. Open areas facing north and lower places are cool. Safer areas for tender plants are under overhanging eaves or evergreen tree branches. Slopes, which allow cold air to drain away, are better than the valley floors. A south-facing wall ab- sorbs heat in the day time and releases it in the night. Conditioning for Frost-Be watchful for frosts in early fall or in spring after plants have begun to grow. The signs of frost are still air, no cloud cover, low humidity and low temperature, (45 degrees or less) at bedtime. If you notice these signs at bedtime, take precautions against frost. Burlap or plastic sheeting over stakes will do the job. Uncover the plants in the day time. Feed and water plants when they are growing fastest in late spring and early summer. Taper off nitrogen feeding in late summer to retard new growth that would not have time to harden before cold weather hits. Reducing water will help to harden growth, but the soil should be moist when the frost season begins. Moist soils collect heat and release it better than dry soils will. Winter-long Protection for Roses-- Wait until a couple of hard freezes have hit, then tie the rose branches together and pile soil-over the base of the branches to about 12 inches above the graft site. Let the soil freeze, then cover Farm news No.till demonstration set A no-till demonstration will be held on Sept. 28 at Wayne Hofmann's farm near Plaza, starting at 9 a.m. For those who are not familiar with the Plaza area, meet at McGregor's Company just off Highway 195 at 8:30 a.m. The demonstration will end around noon. The demonstration will include dif- ferent types of techniques of seeding into lentil residue with no-till drills. Lilliston, Melroe, Air Seeder and the Haybuster will be among the drills represented. Also, a chaff spreader will be on display. After the demonstration, there will be a question and answer period with various dealers and farm- ers available to help. The no-till seeding is sponsored by the Spokane County Conservation District. Proper use of crop residues is one of the most important erosion control measures that a soil manager has. Maybe in the dryland farming areas of Spokane County it is the most impor- tant and now is the time to plan how to use that stubble to protect soil over the winter. Some suggestions are: 1) Spread the residues evenly to make tillage easier. 2) Leave the stubble standing over winter, if possible. It traps snow and keeps it from drifting to the north sides. 3) Use a non-inversion method of tillage, like a chisel or some of the tillager tools. 4) If you have excessive and coarse stubble, choppers or shredders might be necessary.
