What are the easiest vegetables to grow for someone who's never touched a plant before?

I'm glad you're asking this! A vegetable garden is one of the most rewarding projects you can take on as a garden. And I can think of a few forgiving vegetables you could start with. If you want something low-effort, then salad greens - such as lettuce and spinach - are excellent choices. They grow quickly and can even be harvested multiple times. You can begin harvesting leaves as soon as they're large enough to eat, encouraging new growth for future harvests. Radishes are another ideal option for beginners. They are one of the fastest-growing vegetables, taking only about a month from sowing to harvest. And they are easy to care for. Carrots are easy to grow too. They need loose, sandy soil to expand their roots but are otherwise unassuming. Just sow the seeds directly into the ground and keep the soil moist. You should still research each veggie and look up gardening tips for all of them. Sites like Gardener's Yards can help you with that. But you should be able to grow all of these without much headache.

Spear and jackson chainsaw. runs

OK - let's work through this. If you need choke all the time then the mixture is too weak when the choke is off. Putting the choke on literally chokes off the air supply to the engine by lowering a small shutter across the entrance to the carburettor. That means either there is too much air getting to the engine (don't see how!!) or too little fuel. So, how do we get too little fuel? You could check for this as follows;
- before we do anything tricky let's check the obvious things - is there a fresh fuel mix in the tank? Petrol does go off, especially if there is 2 -stroke oil added to it. If it's over a month old from the pump mix up a fresh batch. Is the idle speed set too low so the engine stalls when the choke is knocked off? You can see this screw to one side of the carburettor (you need to remove the top lid in front of the handle on the chain saw, and then remove the air filter to see it). Turn the screw half a turn clockwise to speed the engine up. Be warned - if the engine starts it will run faster than normal and that means the chain may start to spin around. Also - check that the chain brake is off (i.e. the safety lever is pulled backwards, and that the chain is free to move BEFORE you attempt to start)
- is the fuel filter blocked? To get to this, make a wire hook (e.g. thick fuse wire) and gently hook out the fuel filter that's sitting at the bottom of the fuel tank, and take a look at it (be gentle - you can damage the gauze if you are clumsy). Does the gauze look clear? I.e. if you dip it into petrol it will freely run into the filter and of course drain out when you lift it? If not, replace it.
- next stop - are the jets in the carburettor set right? I don't have a service manual for this (and I know the manual says unhelpfully "return for service") but basically you will have seen two holes on the side of the chain saw (below the handle) two small 0.8cm holes; one marked 'L' (for low speed) and the other 'H' (for high). Put a fine flat screwdriver down the L hole and feel for the slot of the low speed jet. Once engaged turn it out half a turn and this will enrich the mixture - if this seems to help and you can start the engine then adjust the L jet in or out until the engine is idling comfortably. If it idles too quickly then you can also turn down the idle screw (see previous paragraph).
- no luck still? Well, it could be fuel pump or a blocked jet in the carburettor but this really is a 'return to the service centre' task!

Good luck!

Noma snow blower G2145000 Manual

If this is a 2 stroke engine you will need to use a 40 to 1 mixture of gas and two stroke oil. Mix the fuel in a larger fuel can and this makes the measuring a LOT easier. 5 litres of gas needs 125ml of two stroke oil. A 20 litre 'Gerry' can is four times bigger so you put in 500ml of oil. This way you've got a handy supply of ready mixed fuel so you can just fill and go.
