Frame Garden Halts
The answer to frequent failures in
the production of green and leafy
vegetables for the family table dur
ing hot summer months and during
drought periods may lie in a frame
garden, says H. R. Niswonger, Ex
tension horticulturist of N. C. State
The largest number of failures
generally occurs in Eastern North
Carolina, although there are some
such instances in the Piedmont and
even in the mountain counties.
Since the recent dry period has
delayed the planting of many vege
tables and hindered those already
planted from coming up, Niswonger
said farm families might give ser
ious consideration to the use of a
frame garden for supplying vege
tables for the family.
A frame resembles a cold frame,
except that it is much longer and not
as wide. The usual width is four to
five feet and the length around 20
a. large family two such
gardens might be necessary to in
sure sufficient supply.
To have green and leafy vege
tables for the family table in July
and August, the seed of such kinds
as snap and bush lima beans, beets,
New Zealand spinach, Swiss chard,
mustard, tomatoes and leaf lettuce
may be planted in June.
For a fall and early winter supply,
vegetables such as beets, carrots,
winter spinach, kale Chinese cab
bage, radish, and leaf lettuce may be
planted in August and September.
The frame should be constructed

WILLIAMSTON, NORTH CAROLINA
Martin's Ace Producer
Victory Garden ...
Unable to tell which was the
greener, the grass or himself, ye ole
gardener suffered an hallucination
several days this week, and when he
snapped out of it he found himself
running from what appeared to be
a whole thousand tomato plants and
a thousand cabbage plants a rela
tive had obligingly tendered out of
sheer sympathy. Those plants were
dangerous apparently, for last re
ports state that a fifth division had
been effected, each recipient giving
liberal portions to another until the
supply was exhausted and no one
had hardly enough to command a
respectable spot in a 2 by 4 garden.
This dividing business is about the
best way after all to defeat work . . .
Even the wash-woman said she
could not dispose of more than 200
of the plants for me. So as you can
probably guess by now, a number of
those plants "died on hand."
The first real mistake in the
gardening plan came to light be
latedly a few days ago. It was
found after painstaking care
had been taken in seed sowing
and cultivation that radishes are
not relished, at least, not very
much at the table. But that's ail
to be forgotten, but next July
there'll be moaning because wa
termelon seed had not been
planted in the place of radishes.
Rats, rabbits, tramplers and the
elements have been indeed disheart
ening these past few days, and the
green gardener, possibly greener
than the green grass, was about to
tip his hat to the honest-to-goodness
farmer and quit when he read the
following from California: "A Yre
ka, Calif., man who started a Vic
tory garden in his back yard dug up
a tin can containing $1,1600 in bills
and coins, which lie exchanged for
war bonds." Now, that's real gar
dening. and ye gardner will even
follow him in the bond purchases,
but he stoutly refuses to clear more
land. It is quite possible that there'll
be deeper digging in that part of the
good earth already cleared
After inspecting gardens of
several of the "old heads" in the
business last week-end, I've ar
rived at the conclusion that Wil
liamston is an agricultural town.
Rush Bondurant and four or five
of the fertilizer plant employees
have something to show for their
toil on the plots near the plant.
Rush either must know the magic
word or else he uses a heck of a
lot of Gro-More, for his garden
is just about tops in this town.
I've decided to make a raid on
his Irish potatoes and beets if
I can find out when they will be
ready to dig.
K. D. Worrell and Prince Purdy,
those VEP Hotshots, opened up their
gardening project this summer,
working in cahoots . Prince works
the garden while K. D. paints the
Worrell home , . Must have been
some fast talking done by somebody
there . . . However, they have a
fine "upright" garden, and are just
as proud of theirs as t am of mine
Already I've had radishes and spring
onions out of the Worrell-Purdy
Gardens, Inc., and bolieve-you-me,
I'm just waiting for their squash to
gain a little more "confidence".
Don't tell anybody, but if it
doesn't rain pretty soon in my gar
den don't be surprised if you read
in the want-ad column about Mar
tin County's Ace Producer seeking
employment elsewhere . . . Person
ally, the only reason I can figure out
for the hot and dry season is that I
planted too many red peppers. But
