Vegetables Can Be

There 'is no reason for discarding

them on a depressed market, says
H. R. Niswonger,. horticulturist of

The problem of. where to store
vegetables is important, and the
State qollege specialist makes the
following recommendations' along
this line: Beans and field peas
may be picked in the pod, spread
out in a warm dry place in the
attic until dried, and after being
shelled the beans should be placed
in tight containers and treated with
carbon disulphide to control weev
ils. Root crops, such as carrots,
beets and turnips, should have the
tops cut off, leaving short leaf
sterns, before storing. They may be
Stored in shallow crates and placed
in the cellar. Ah occasional sprink
ling with water will prevent shrivel

be stored in trenches out-of-doors.
Another method commonly used in
Eastern Carolina consists of push
ing the heads of the plants to
ward the North and covering the
stem and base of the heads with
soil The plants are thus, left right
in the row where they grew.
