Garden Fence Is Best Place For Tomatoes, Cucumbers Tomatoes and cucumbers may be grown In the small home garden each in no mere space than ii takes for a row ol beans, il they are allowed to climb. The heaviest tomato yield, and earliest fruit, for. space occupied, will be given by a row of plants set 12 inches apart and pruned to a single stem.

Home Freezers Should Be Defrosted Before Hot Weather, Agent Declares Frost on a home freezer Is like the wool on a sheep's back — frost keeps the freezer warm and woo! keeps the sheep warm. Both the sheep and your freezer need a good "shearing" before hot weather. It is wise management to defrost a home freezer before hot weather, says Gertrude B. Holiman, Home Demonstration Agent. fhe frost In a freezer acts as a Jlanket ol insulation and the unit las to work harder to keep food roozen. The freezer should be defrosted when frost is half an inch thick. Three things cause a home freezer ^to build up frost: (1) Open- ng and closing the box more often han necessary, (2) Poor packag- ng of foods causing loss of moisture which is deposited as frost! on the side, (3) A poor seal on the door gasket. | The greatest build-up of frost! comes from poor packaging and] can be stopped by proper use ol good freezer paper and other materials, Mrs. Holiman explained. When 11 freezer needs defrosting, the job should be done as quickly as possible. Two people can work better than one. Take out all frozen food and wrap it in blankets or newspapers. Scrape all the frost from the sides of the box using a dull scraper which will not scratch the finish. If t h e frost is thick and hard, the box must be disconnected and allowed to warm slightly before the frost can be loosened. If rules of wise management are followed, the box will seldom have to be disconnected — a periodic scraping will be all that la necessary. Thick frost on * freezer not only reduces food storage space, but increases cost of operation.
