Pluck up the courage to handle the garden hoe


It is now July, and there is no clear answer to the question whether we will have the autumn sports meeting, and if so, when it will start.A lot of local school districts say they want to start in early August, so we’ll see how things go.In the meantime, while I wait for all these things to be ready, I must turn my attention to the garden.

One thing is for sure, my garden and garden are beginning to bear fruit, so I will be busy with work in the days ahead.

I enjoy farming, planting, and sowing, and wait to see the fruits of my and Vicki’s labors come true.Now I just hope we can catch up in the next few weeks.

My years as a dairy and grass farmer still seemed to be an advantage, for I did not seem to have lost the magic of grass farming.Back then, I wanted to grow grass, and now I’m trying to keep it from covering me.After all the rain we’ve received over the past few days, grass has made a dramatic comeback from near-extinction, especially the infamous crab claw.


As I sit here writing this column, I am terrified that I will have to take out my garden hoe again and declare war on the grass in the garden space.It’s hard work, but once I’ve done it all or most or part of it, I feel a great sense of accomplishment.Now, I don’t know which of these three is true.Time will tell me, also will tell my aching back.

The best thing about growing up on a farm is being able to drive and/or operate all kinds of machinery and tools, but I have to be honest, after all my years of farming, using a garden hoe is near the bottom of my list.

I didn’t like digging in the garden as a child, as a teenager, as a young adult, and now as an old man, I’m still afraid to pull out a hoe.

I don’t know why I have such an aversion to an ordinary, mundane tool.I mean, when you’re done with this tool, your flowers and vegetables look so great because they can grow unimpeded by the vegetation.

I think using a garden hoe in my house is like taking medicine to get better.It was hard at first, but when everything was said and done, the final effect was huge.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower once said, ”Farming may seem easy when your plow is a pencil and you are thousands of miles from a cornfield.”

I think the garden hoe is the same. It looks like a very humble tool, but when you pick it up and start using it, you will soon find the meaning of manual labor.

”Gardening takes a lot of water — mostly in the form of sweat,” another person once said.

In the face of the future garden hoe work and gathering work, I say amen to this, but in the end, we will have the harvest, it is all worth it.

I wish you a happy National Day, peace!

The Best Window Curtains, According to Interior Designers

Fortunately, adding curtains is one of the simplest — and less costly — projects you can undertake to transform a room.To help you dress your Windows with the least headache, we turn to 10 interior designers for their favorite curtains, many of which are surprisingly budget-friendly.(If you’re shopping for curtains, you’re likely looking at rods, and this list has a bunch of expert-recommended options to choose from.)

Before we get curtains — which include a range of off-the-shelf styles in different opacity, color and patterns, as well as a couple of custom options — some quick guidelines on how to size your curtains for your space.When it comes to measuring your Windows, says Megan Hersch, owner of Studio MG Interiors and RoomLift, an online interior design service, you should measure 12 to 24 inches beyond the sides of the Windows to determine how wide each curtain panel should be so you have some collection.Determining the length of curtains, Hersch says, depends on how formal you want them to look — and how much cleaning you want to do.”I usually measure the curtain so it just” kisses ”the floor,” she says.That way, nothing will drag and catch the dirt, but you’re sure they won’t look too short.”For a more formal look, she recommends adding an extra 1.5 inches to make the overhang just ”break” on the floor.The most dramatic appearance is to allow panels to ”accumulate” on the floor, which means adding anywhere from 8 to 12 inches to the length of the curtain (the type of fabric, whether hard like taffeta or soft like velvet, will also determine how it naturally accumulates on the floor).


If you want something from your curtains — privacy, light and appearance — without committing too much to any one of those needs, transparent curtains are a good choice.As Megan Huffman, designer at Modsy, an online interior design service, puts it, transparent curtains ”provide the ability to let natural light into the space and help illuminate a dark room while still allowing privacy,” adding, ”Nothing I like more than crisp white transparent curtains.”She recommends this pair of curtains from West Elm, which features subtle cross stripes to add a bit of texture.If you like the look of a clear curtain during the day but want to keep light out at night, Huffman says, these curtains can easily hang on double curtain rods for a thicker, more opaque shade.


Brompton Bicycle’s UK online sales soar fivefold during lockdown

Brompton ​Bicycle has said it sold five times as many bikes online since launching its Direct to Home initiative at the start of April, a week after the UK entered lockdown.
Many of the bike shops the West London-based company would usually trade through are either closed completely or restricting their activities to servicing and repairs.
The shift online has therefore helped Brompton satisfy demand for its folding bikes, much of it from people looking to switch to cycling for their commutes and avoid public transport.
A spokesperson for the company told Telegraph.co.uk: (link is external) “Online sales from both our accredited retailers and via Brompton have grown rapidly (five times higher than the previous month) since the launch of our Direct To Home service at the start of April.”
They added that organic web traffic for the UK had also risen by 62 per cent during the past five weeks as people browse its bikes online.
To cater for the surge in online interest, the company has now introduced a video call service, named Brompton Live In-Store Expert, which puts customers in touch with staff from the Brompton Junction store opened last year at London’s Westfield White City.
The service, available from 10am-4pm Monday to Friday, enables customers to seek advice on Brompton’s range of bikes as well as accessories and clothing.
Stephen Loftus, Brompton’s chief commercial officer, said: “We have always been committed to deliver the highest level of customer service we can, and I am delighted we are able to now offer our customers an engaging way to access the expertise of our retail staff so that they can have confidence in finding their perfect Brompton and have it delivered to one our accredited retail stores or straight to their door.
“This new service is an example of how we are adapting and developing our business to meet the changing consumer needs due to the impact of COVID-19,” he added.
In March, the company’s Brompton Bike Hire arm started letting NHS key workers hire its bikes for free to enable them to get to work while avoiding public transport.

Brompton also turned over part of the production facilities at its Greenford factory to support the Wheels For Heroes initiative enabling more bikes to be made available to NHS staff, and launched a crowdfunding campaign (link is external) so the public could also back it, with more than £300,000 raised to date.
