Frame Garden Halts Vegetable Failures 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 College. 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 , sA>^A \^666 PERFECT RECORD Ruth Myrtle Bazemore, daughter of Mrs Amielissia Cherry, 300 S.

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 don't go up, it's going to rain good to morrow. For Future Reference?When the production period comes along, I don't want to forget to contact the N. C. Employment Service and have a "tented town" moved here to ga ther In my beans, corn and other crops. Hiey tell me this division Is doing just that for all of us large producers this year. e ( Editor Announces New Publications A new respect for the much-abus ed cotton crop and a growing inter est in economical silage for North Carolina's expanding livestock in dustry are two bright spots in the State's agricultural picture this year. To make available to farm people timely concise information on both topics, the Extension Service of N. C. State College has just published a revised circular on cotton growing and a folder on low cost silos. Extension Circular No. 258, "Cot tains suggestions for producing bet ter staple and better quality lin through the improvement of pres ent planting, cultural, and harvest ing methods.

Jeter, agricultural editor of State College, says that either, or both, of these publications may be secured by writing to his office and requesting the pamphlets by name and number. The publications will be sent without charge. The cotton circular was prepared by a committee representing the N. C. Agricultural Experiment Station, the N. C. Department of Agricul ture, and the Extension Service. The silo folder was compiled by Duvid S. Weaver, head of the Agri cultural Engineering Department at State College, and F R.
