NOWB and CX>rnmerci»l Appeal. feve lomaloes, Canners Urged Commerciol Pack For Civilian Use Will Be Shorter Victory Gardeners Can Start Planting Now For Fall Crops With only five-eights as much of the commercial pack of whole tomatoes and tomato juice available his year as last for civilians' needs, Mississippi County hometnnkers will do wise to join Ihe ranks of ionic dinners-, Miss Cora Lee Coleman, county home demonstration agent, contends. Whether fresh or canned, loma- toe.s have a lot to offer, according Miss Coleman. In Mississippi Comity, as in the rest of Arkansas, canned tomator; are (he main stand-by for providing vilamin C winter meals and an expensive source of vitamin c all during the year, she said. They also provide other vitamins and minerals, and are high in flavor and eye appeal. In f.ict, lliey arc the '(op nink- iig canned vegetable, Miss Colc- inan explained. They are easy lo can, too, the home demonstration agent slated, Because they contain enough natural acid, they can be safely processed by the liol water )alh method. This acid also helps tomatoes to keep their vitamin C ivhen they are canned. Miss Coleman outlined the following steps for canning tomatoes: Selecl tomatoes that are firm, ripe, medium in size, and free fron 1 decay. Do not choose overripe tomatoes as they will not lie of high J£[ ; imrt «rc likely to lie mushy. isti'toiiKitocs carefully. Remove tnc .skins by dipping the tomatoes, a few at a time, into boiling vva- .cr. Plunge the scalded lonmtocs into cold water. Slip off the sktu. Cut out the core, and drop the tomatoes directly into sterilized jars. Cover with hoi tomato juice. Add salt, remove air bubbles, adjust lid, and process. Cut iWgc tomatoes in halves or quarters, place in jars, and press down until they arc covered wilh llieir own juice. Process pints 40 minutes, and quarts 45 minutes. Tomato juice, according to Miss Coleman, is still easier to can. Directions are as follows; Wash ripe, red tomatoes. Remove cores and cut into small pieces. Simmer until the tomatoes are soft. Put the soft cooked tomntocs Ihrough a sieve or (oori mill to remove seed. Reheat tomato juice and pour inlo hoi .sterilized jars. Adrf salt, adjust lids, and process in hot water bath 5 minutes. Canned tomatoes keep their color better when stored is a dark Miss Coleman' concluded. K ' Pall plantings in Mississippi County Victory gardens may Iw equally as important as the early spring plantings of this year, Miss Cora Lee Coleman, county home demonstration agent, predicted this week. The continuous spring rains that made gardens late nnrt the heat and drought-that cnl production of many vegetable* have contributed lo the need for Browing good fall gardens, she explained. With proper rainfall, full gardens can Ix; almost as productive as spring and early summer gardens, she said. With favorable weather, they will extend Ihe season during which the table can be supplied with fresh vegetables, will produce root crops to l>c stored for winter use, will allow Ihe production of most of tile cool season crops that were produced in the sprint', and will save (he canned goods conserved from the spring and summer crops or save nilion points if all vegetables go back on the ration list. Vegetables that must be planted at once in order to have time for inolurhig include cucumbers, which usually require C5 to 70 days to make n crop; ('Irish potatoes, 90 to 100 <hiys; "s«cc.i corn, 80 to (10 (lays;) and bush limn beans such as Henderson's Bush or Baby Fimlhuok vnriclie.s. Tin- pole lining require a .onger pcrlud in which lo mature, the home tlcmonslralion n go lit pointed out. i« AM \ .•include <mly if lliere is time fur maturity In your county.) These crops, however, should m>t be [itonlcd unless (here Is suniclenl moisture in the ground to germinate Ihe seed »n<| s t,irt the plants growing at once. Quite ollcii. even though Ihe upper three m four inches of the ground seem perfectly dry, there is moisture down deep in the soil, nnd furrows live lo six indies deep can IK made so Dial (| u . SI . C (| will lie in the deep sol! mcjistiire. she explained. Instead of jjlllnf; )„ (lle f tlnw after sowing the seed, the Mississippi County Victory gardener slioiild cover the seed willi nixnil one-hull inch of suii. As Ihe seedlings start growing, (he furrow can be j<rnd- ually filled in until (he ground Is level. For small plantings, the home demonstration agent suggested (hat u bucket of water be poured along the furrow ami Ihe seed covered after it has soaked into the ground A further aid. Miss. Coleman added, is lo (ill In the furrow with n mulching material to prevenl excessive drying.

When fruits are at (he height of their season and most abundant, the home canncr may not have the sugar lo make all the jelly she wishes. She can, however, put up a supply of juice to use later for jelly. Jelly made from juice thut has been stored as long as six moulds has a fine lcxliir e as that made from fresh fruit, home cco- nomlsts of tin. u. s. Dtpartmon 1 of Agriculture have found.
