HAND I have to insulate a floor over a crawl space. The house is very old construction, and the floor is laid on 6" by 8" beams four to five feet apart. What would be the best way to insulate this floor effectively? The house mentioned is in northern Vermont and winter temperatures reach minus 50. - J.G., East Hartford, Ct. Working in crawl spaces isn't a lot of fun, since you spend a lot of time crawling around, bumping your head, and working on your back. So here's the quickest way I know of to get the job done: First of all, you will need a good vapor barrier. Best way to get it is to stample polyethylene film to the lower surface of the floor. Overlap all seams by about three inches, and run the film a few inches down the sides of the beams. After the vapor barrier is in place, staple chicken wire across the bottoms Garden Home The Salina Journal Swimming Pools LIFETIME GUARANTEE McKEE'S FOR OVH 25 YEARS 1314 K.W. M, MIUK 913-263-2141 of the beams as shown in the sketch. On top of this you can then place six- inch unfactid fiberglass batts. Since your beam spacing varies from four to five feet, you will probably have to trim the batts to get a good fit. Two 23- inch wide batts side by side should be just about right for beams spaced four feet apart. For the five-foot spacing you might use two 23-inch batts plus a 15, or four 15-inchers. Alternatively, you could cut the batts FLOOR PLASTIC FILM INSULATION into short lengths sized to fit crosswise between the beams as shown in the sketch. TV TV TV I have a ranch house with a truss roof. It is fully insulated. In the attic, the insulation is just blown in and lies loosely between the joist. If I install a whole house fan in the attic floor, will it blow this loose insulation all over the place? — E.W., Patchogue, N.Y. Since the fan blows upward, its airstream will not be directed at the insulation, and it shouldn't cause any problems. If it does, it will only be in the area right near the fan. I doubt very much that this will happen, however. If it does, you can simply replace the insulation right around the fan with batt- type insulation. Or staple cheesecloth, burlap, or "some other cheap fabric over the insulation in that area to keep it in place.

BEAMS Fall fertilizing benefit to lawns Although it seems late in the year to be fertilizing lawns, bluegrass, fescue, and ryegrass lawns really benefit from a late fall (dormant) dose of fertilizer. Grassy topgrowth has virtually come to a halt, but the grass is still growing, and storing up reserves for winter survival. This late fall application will cause your lawn to green up earlier in the spring without producing the excessive flush of topgrowth associated with early spring fertilizing. The grass will also be more resistant to disease and weed invasion by pushing it in the fall and avoiding early spring feeding. A high nitrogen lawn fertilizer may be used now at up to double normal rate without burning the lawn. Money and time spent now on fertilizing should save money devoted to weed control next spring. Ttr -tf & The blooming of this year's chrysanthemum season is all but over. For best results again next year, they need some winter protection. Most garden chrysanthemums are winter hardy here, meaning they can take our cold temperatures. The main threat for them, though, is the alternate freezing and thawing of the soil throughout winter and early spring. A thick mulch layer of leaves, straw, pine boughs, etc. laid over them may help insulate the ground to keep it frozen. The dead foliage of mums may be cut back to near the ground anytime between now and spring.

By Greg Davis Extension Agent Jn suran ce by Bob Shade BUSINESS OWNERS POLICY The approach used in packaging business owner's policies for small and medium sized business is similar to that used in homeowners insurance policies. When the owner insures the building or business property, automatically included are a broad range of individual coverages for a single premium. Some of the automatic coverages offered are Loss of Income (resulting from an insured peril), comprehensive business liability, (completed operation or product liability) with a $300,000 or one million dollar limit. Personal injury liability,, including libel, slander, false arrest, wrongful eviction is included, as is replacement cost for the building or business property without deductions for deprecita- tion. Peak season increases on business personal property is automatic up to 25% of the face value of the policy. There is a limit of $1,000 coverage on business property temporarily away or in transit. This policy is designed to give the business owner property and liability protection in a single, understandable package. growth resumes, you can multiply your plants by dividing them and replanting the divisions.
