GARDEN TIME ,
BY ROBERT SCHMIDT I1
Have you received your new (
seed and garden catalog yet? XI '
not, send a post card to your favor
ite seed house and request one.
While waiting for favorable gar
dening weather, you can study the
catalog, make gardening plans for !
the coming season, an dorder the
seeds, plants and bulbs that you j
decide t oplant in the garden. It is |
very important to order seeds
early so that they will be on hand
when it is time to plant.
Seeds that are left over from last
season should be given a germina
tion test before being planted this
year. Some of them may not be j
good. An easy way to make a ger- j
mination test is to place a wet pa
per towel on a diner plate. Count
out 50 or 100 seeds upon the paper
rowel and place another wet towel
on top of the seeds. Cover with an
other dinner plate turned upside
down and place in the kitchen or a
warm room. Most vegetable and
flowe rseeds will sprout in about a
week come in 3 or 4 days. If
most of the seeds in the test show
sprouts, the left-over seeds may be
planted in the garden.
Altho it is still early to start out
door gardening operations in most
part of the state, several kinds of
vegetables may be planted this
month in the extreme eastern and
southeastern portions. Early cab
bage plants, onion sets, lettuce
plants, Irish potatoes .^pinar*. ra
dishes, 'turnips, mustard, kale,
garden peas, and endive are some
at the vegetables that may be
planted. Cauliflower and broccoli
are not as hardy as cabbage and
should not be planted yet.
Varieties that you shook] plant
will be determined by your own ex
perience and by recommendations
of your state experiment station.
Many of the old varieties listed in
the seed catalogs are as good as
the new ones. However, every gar
dener should try out some of the
varieties. They win provide new in
terest and speculations.
The seeds of hybrid varieties are
usually expensive because it takes
a great deal of hand labor to pro
duce them. Some of them are wor
th the extra cost but others are no
better than established varieties.
Do not be misled by the beautiful
illustrations and glowing descrip
tions of the catalogs.
