Start by digging parallel trenches 10 in. wide by 6 in. deep and centered 3 ft. 6 in. apart. If the ground is slightly sloped (like ours was), dig out any high areas between the trenches so you can (later) place a level across the sleepers.
The simple bike hook works great, actually, if for no other reason than the small wall section where I installed it. It’s such a short section of wall next to the kitchen that the handlebars hang around the right corner into the kitchen (up high out of the way), so they only stick out from the wall half as far as normally would on an all flat section of wall. The only issue was the rear wheel wanted to hang down off the left side sticking out beyond the corner. So I did an easy fix by hooking the seat around the right corner, and moving a bookshelf (that I also needed space for) underneath to ensure the bike doesn’t dislodge and slide laterally past the left corner.
Our broom making equipment, technology and the use of broomcorn can now be found worldwide. Our broom industry flourished until 1994 when foreign brooms were permitted into the U.S., duty free. The remaining small factories struggle to compete with Mexican-made brooms, while individual broom makers like yours’ truly make a few thousand high quality brooms each year and tell the interesting stories of our history.
Sponge mops provide better cleaning control than the bulkier string mops. The smaller head of the sponge mop is also better for cleaning small areas. It’s also easier to wring out sponge mops than string mops, which makes sponge mops better for damp mopping surfaces that shouldn’t get too wet, such as wood floors. Sponge mops may also be used to clean walls and ceilings or apply finishes. Lightweight, easy to use, versatile and inexpensive, this mop has a place in almost any household.
On the east and west coasts of North America, common broom (Cytisus scoparius) was introduced as an ornamental plant (i.e.:California since the 1860s). It is known in much of the pacific northwest as Scotch broom. It has become a naturalised invasive weed, and due to its aggressive seed dispersal broom removal has proved very difficult. Similarly, it is a major problem species in the cooler and wetter areas of southern Australia and New Zealand. Biological control for broom in New Zealand has been investigated since the mid-1980s. On the west coast of the United States, French broom (Genista monspessulana), Mediterranean broom (Genista linifolia) and Spanish broom (Spartium junceum) are also considered noxious invasives, as broom quickly crowds out native vegetation, and grow most prolifically in the least accessible areas.

While we don’t have an exact date for the broom’s initial invention, bundles of twigs, reeds, corn husks, and other natural fibers have almost certainly been used since ancient times to sweep up ash and embers around fires and, later, hearths. The New Testament, for example, mentions broom use in Jesus’ discussion in Luke 15:8 of the importance of even one lost soul: “Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?”
