One ot them said. "Why nol cross cultivate with hills about 18 inches iipartf" The next. ciurslloii was, "How could you cross cultivate such narrow rows?" Mr. Davis thought about it for weeks. Neighbors saw Fred in llir- machinery Junk pile nt «[!<i times, tiding like ho liiul iost something. Then,, lie cnme out with mi iden. "Fact's Inke Dint diseaiiic-d nllalfn cultivator, reset" Hie plow springs, and 'cross plow with it." The result was n mobile tool with fivr cultivating springs 18 Inches apart and eight inch biiKxnrd wings iit- - Inched to each. Their depth was adjustable, any siw plows could be used nntl a marker was attached. Tliis innchinc wns used twice in cross cultivation on a 40-acrc lest. plot .just South and East of Mr. Hose's home.

Suckers arc/ the answer- those .side shoots which 1 fil'o* out at points where the larijo ' leaves join the main stem. When tomato plants are staked and trained to a single stem, as they are in many gardens, these suckers art' '"pinched off" as they appear. U more tomato pfimts are needed, let n few of the suckers grow about eight or 10 indies long, then break them off and plant them In any tare spots In the garden. They will take root if kept well watered and protected from sun for a few (Jays. Removing corn suckers—a practice with ninny gardeners—is unnecessary latior, the plant, scientists advise.
