The extension office is probably not the place you normally think of for Christmas gifts. We didn't run any "Black Friday" sales, but we have sev- eral gifts that will be appreciated by' those who enjoy Kansas outdoors. Take a soil test and we will provide the fertilizer recommendations for your favorite gardener. Soil probes are avail- able for loan. As long as the ground isn't frozen the results can be available at gift opening time. The new "Kansas Garden Guide" is available for purchase. It was updated in March and is a marked improve- ment over the previous edition. The new version covers it all; composting, fertilizing, watering and pest control. There is section on most of the veg- etable crops grown in Kansas. Another book from K-State, "Insects in Kan- sas," has been popular with more than 450 pages of color pictures of insects common to Kansas. Another insect book arrived in offices this month for the farmer, "Crop Insects of Kansas.' The insects are broken down by their associated crops. Along with the pho- tographs and written description is their biology, damage and management. Although not available at our office. "Weeds of the Great Plains," and Mike Haddock's "Wildflowers and Grasses of Kansas" are great references for those interested in what nature has to offer in Kansas. "Weeds of the Great Plains" is a reasonably priced with color pictures description, and uses. (including those by the native Indians or early settlers). It is available from the University of Nebraska I have the order form. Haddock's book does the same for wildflowers and grasses. What can I do to help my newly' planted trees survive the winter ? Kansas winters can be extremely hard on our trees. First, protect young trees from rabbits. Rabbits consider young tree bark, especially fruit trees. a delicacy. Always a problem, in deep snow, rabbits may not wait until snow- .

Protect them with plastic tree guards or chicken wire. One rabbit in one night can effectively destroy a young tree. Winter root dam- age is another problem, Plants survive because soil temperatures are normally higher than air temperatures. Moist soil holds more heat than dry soil. Snow cover and mulch are insulators and keep soil temperatures higher. Cracks sometime develop in the plant- ing hole of a fall planted tree allowing cold air direct access to the root zone. Check, then fill any cracks around newly planted trees. It is important to remember trees are dormant not dead during the win- ter. There is still respiration going on and they still need moisture. If the fall is dry, water heavily before the ground freezes, then mulch new trees and shrubs after soils have cooled. During dry winters', trees (especially ever- greens) should be watered whenever the ground isn't frozen. Salt used on sidewalks and roads is another cause winter injury. The run- off damages roots and salt spray from passing vehicles damages foliage and stems. (If you have ever spilled the salted water from an ice cream freezer in the lawn you know the damage salt can do). Sun scald is a winter problem re- sulting in cracked areas of dead bark. Sun scald is most common on young or thin barked trees. Because of the sun angle in winter, it damages the south or southwest side. On cold winter days the sun heats the bark to the point moisture is drawn from the roots. When the sun is blocked, bark temperature drops rapidly, freezing the water and bursting the cells killing the tissue. This can be prevented by plastic trunk protectors. An ever increasing problem espe- cially in rural areas but also on the fringes of town is deer damage. With a high population of deer the best you can do ts mimmize damage. K-State has a publication available on line or at the extension office that lists repel- lants that are apparently effective. It also reports "several recent studies and numerous testimonials" that ordinary bars of soap suspended from tree branches can reduce deer damage. Drill a hole in each bar and suspend with a twist tie or string. Each bar appears to protect a radius of about one yard. Any inexpensive bar soap will do. If you have an area with several trees to protect this publication pro- vides instruction for constructing a "Penn ut butter fence." An electric fence wire is coated with peanut butter mix- ture. When the deer' s nose touches the fence the shock teaches them to avoid the area. The publication stresses stop- ping deer before they develop a habit i Brent Beck, 785-545-5427  of using your trees as an entree. I II I I I MONDAY 5 12 19 6 13 Dr. Chingren @ Jewell Co.
