Fall Seeding Brings Less Weeding submitted by Dr. Catherine Tarasoff, PhD. P.Ag.

With fall just around the corner, your garden is likely winding down for the season; however, with the combination of cooler temperatures, fall rain and warm soils, the conditions are perfect for grass germination. Outlined below are a few final yard and pasture management activities that will pay dividends in keeping invasive plants and weeds at bay next spring and summer: 1. Re-seed bare ground – bare spots in your lawn or pasture occur for a variety of reason, including, but not limited to, routine foot traffic, heavy grazing, earth works, and/ or fire and flood damage. Before seeding your bare ground, choose an appropriate grass seed mix for the area (your local agri-supply stores are great resources for choosing appropriate seed mixes!). Then, loosen the soil to ensure good seed-to-soil contact. Follow the prescribed seeding rate and keep the site well-watered, while avoiding puddling water, until the grass is well established. 2. Top Up Your Grasses – fall is the ideal time for the practice of overseeding a thin lawn or pasture. Prior to overseeding, it is critical to cut existing grasses down to 5 cm (2 inches) or less and bag up the grass clippings, if possible; this will ensure the new seeds are able to reach the soil surface. For lawns, consider aerating to increase available seed-to-soil contact. As above, follow the application rates and instructions and keep the site well-watered until the grass has established. 3. Consider a Cover Crop – Cover crops do exactly what their name implies; cover the soil.

The benefits of cover cropping are far reaching as they stabilize the soil surface and reduce soil erosion. They also assist in building soil health as nutrients are added to the soil if the crop is tilled in the spring. Finally, they will help suppress invasive plants and weeds by providing competition. Late summer/early fall is the ideal time for seeding cover crops. Again, your local agri-supply store can assist you with appropriate cover crops to suite your needs. It is important to understand that once seeds have started absorbing water they are biologically alive; although you cannot see an emergent shoot, the seed has come out of dormancy and is beginning the germination process. One of the main reasons for failed seeding attempts is desiccation just before the germination stage. However, if you are not able to provide water to the site, then purchase a fast germinating, drought tolerant seed and time your seeding to capture at least 2 days of abundant precipitation. Avoid grazing or mowing until the grass is at least 8 cm (3 in) tall. Fall is a great time to get your lawn and pastures ready for a healthy start next year. Your investment now will help promote a healthy and diverse plant community next spring, and you will be rewarded with less weeding! Catherine is the Education and Outreach Coordinator for the Thompson Nicola Invasive Plant Management Committee (on Facebook @TNIPMC). Look for more resources at www.tnipmc.com

New Exhibits at the Museum Submitted by Chase & District Museum & Archives Society

Since the beginning of August, the Chase & District Museum & Archives has been celebrating the Chase Lions Club with a large exhibit in the main gallery. If you haven’t seen it yet, time is running out as the exhibit will be packed up after September 30th, and the items will be returned to the Lions Club. A big thank you to the Chase Lions Club for loaning all the items to the museum! Breanne had a fun time going through everything and learning what the Lions Club has done for Chase and the nearby areas. Following this exhibit’s end,

Breanne will be setting up a display honouring our veterans for Remembrance Day. Don’t forget to watch the streets for the street pole banners, naming the local WWI and Boer War veterans, which will be going up in the near future as well. In addition to this exhibit, Breanne will also be showcasing an artifact which will be turning 100 years old in November! It’s a surprise for now but Breanne says it’s larger than most artifacts at the museum. Watch for further announcements both here and on our Facebook page!

Salmon Arm “Shuswap Coffee House” Happenings by Carolyn Parks Mintz Author, Freelance Writer & Journalist

Wildwood Productions and the Gleneden Association are pleased to again present the popular Coffee House evenings—entertainment events that ran for ten years during the 1970’s and 80’s—to be held at Gleneden Hall located at 5151 49th Street NW, just west of Salmon Arm, running off TransCanada Highway opposite P i e r r e’s Point Road. So, what is a “Coffee House?” The Oxford Canadian Dictionary defines it as a place serving coffee and refreshments, as well as (more significantly) live performances presented cabaret style. And that’s what will be re-staged at the Hall every third Saturday from September 17th to next May. Shows will be Open Mic format, with talented local singers and instrumentalists stepping up to the microphone and delivering

music sure to lighten the mood and set toes to tapping. As an added attraction, poets and raconteurs will have the opportunity to weave their stories with readings that take audiences to imagined places through word pictures. In the interest of health safety, COVID protocols will be optional. Shuswap Coffee H o u s e doors will open at 6:30 pm for p er for mer registrations, with the programme starting at 7:00 pm. A few spots can be booked in advance for out-of-town performers. Call 250.832.2300 to reserve. Beverages and snacks will be available. Admission fee is $4.00. Music and the arts – a panacea like no other. And a great way to add to your weekends.

Winter tires a smart safety investment – and they’re the law Road Safety at Work

Winter tires are an investment in safety — for you, your family and friends, and others sharing the road. They’re also required by law on many highways in BC as of October 1. Winter tires provide better traction and stopping performance than summer tires in cold temperatures and on wet, snowy, and icy roads. Traction may be the difference between safely driving on winter roads in the Thompson-Nicola and being involved in a serious crash. Winter tires or chains are required on many BC highways from October 1 to March 31. For select highways, including mountain passes and rural routes in high snowfall areas, the date extends through April 30. Drivers need to obey road signs listing the requirements. Visit ShiftintoWinter.ca for more information on the regulations. A winter tire must be in good condition, with a minimum tread depth of 3.5 mm (5/32 inches). The 3-peaked mountain/ snowflake and all-season Mud and Snow (M+S) tires both meet the legal requirements for winter tires in BC. Winter tires with a 3-peaked mountain and snowflake symbol provide good winter driving performance, especially in harsh winter conditions. They outperform Mud and Snow tires at 7C or lower. Their natural rubber compound helps them stay soft and flexible in colder

temperatures. Chains on summer tires are not an acceptable substitute on BC highways requiring winter tires. Some other tips to give you better traction while driving: Make sure tires match All four tires need to match in size, tread type, and depth. You need at least two matching winter tires on the primary drive axle, even for a 4X4 vehicle. Using different types of tires compromises stability and could cause your vehicle to fishtail. Check tire wear and pressure Always check the wear of your winter tires before installing them. Are they in good shape and with enough tread? Monitor tire pressure often as it can drop in cold weather. Carry chains or other traction devices Passenger vehicles may be required to use chains or other traction devices with winter tires. Know and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for putting them on properly. Shift into Winter is supported by the Winter Driving Safety Alliance, which reminds drivers to prepare themselves and their vehicle now for changing road and weather conditions.
