'Planting the garden all at one lima and then waiting for Die erous to mature, will not provide vegetables throughout llic Summer and Fall. Succession planting should be practiced to achieve, the u!XxA value froia.a home garden.

Voluntary Leaders Prove Important In County Work Both the extension ngents ionize that wllliout the cooperation and support of the voluntary leaders In ;he community the extension service could not fist for a very long :ime. Every day examples of loyally iinci faithfulness from liolunlary workers are exemplified. Mrs. T. R. Watson, president of the county council, visited In .MLi- slrslppi lust month.

Many innuirics arc being niade about growing navy beans in Vic- lory gardens. This is nut recommended because of the relatively small yield v,'bich could bo obtained from liniilcd space 1 , ft is obvious thai where only Ihc dried seed of the plants arc harvested, as in Ihc ease of Ihe nnvy beau, Uic- production is much smaller than whore Hid seed pod itself is eaten. Lima benns arc much larger, but even (hey give a relatively smaller yield for Ihe space occupied than Ihc snnp or siring beans. The name string beans is obsolete for home garden use; if a has n string it should not be gc'ov.'ii. Tlierc lire four general types of bush beans, (ho green and wax (yellow) each divided into llat potl and round pod. Market beans ure usually flat pod, which yield better lhan Ihc round pod; and Ibc Inltcr Imvc (he best finality. This yenr H may be difficult to gel a wide choice of bean varieties, and necessary (o lake what Ihc market provides, Hut there is small danger (if Rcltint! a poor one. since most of Ibcsc have bcci\ discarded by Ihc growers. Hehvceu (he green and wax >cans llierc arc slight differences in vitamin content, (lie former excelling in vitamin A, Ihc latter in vitamin B, most nutritious years fexv both .ire among our foods. In recent beans have been seen ill markets; but in the opinion of many they nve more tender and of beltcL- flavor Iban green beans. , Hush beans should not he alloirai (o form seeds. They are at Ihc height of flavor and tenderness from the lime they have jiisl begun to form, until lliey be^iti to make seeds; and (hey dclcrioriatc .somewhat after thai. Both for Hie (able and for canning llicy should be picked before seeds form, anil not more than an hour before they arc ju cooked. Canning pod beans requires special precautions lo kill Uic botu- linus germ, ami before it is attempted (be advice ot canning ex- perls should be sought. It bean planls nre kepi picked clean, they will cnnllnue to lie;n- all summer, producing several crops, 'as long as the plants arc healthy. Hut since Iho first crop is always the largest, it is advisable to make several sowings in .succession, -so thot I'lrrU'ss cookers offer possibilities for wartime cooks, bolh nt home and in canlcens, Miss Cora Ix;e tJolcman, county home demonstra- lion ngenl, advised Mlssis.sippl Covmly homemakcrs this week, I Dirrclions worked out- by the Unreal! ol Home Kconomics at the U.

Eggplant is one of Ihc vegetables , which wfll take the place of a meat! course for one of the meatless days ' \vbich wartime rationing enforces. Though ol Americaii origin, it is 1 used more extensively in Europe and in the orient than in this country. Its nutritive value is high, and there arc many templing ways of cooking it. It is well to vary the method ol serving. . Eggplant grows slowly, and should be started under protection. The plants require an even tern- 1 pcVature and do not thrive in cold frames. A dozen planls will be sufficient for an average family, and they arc usually obtainable in Iho markets. The plants renuire rich soil, but U'ill do well m any garden \vhich has been well fertilized. As they are extremely lender and would |je killed by light frost they should never be set in the garden unt'i! all danger of frost is over. Set them 18 inches to 2 feet apart in the row, and keep (hem growing by frequent shallow cultivation. When fruits begin lo set, ;i side dressing of plant food will help them. Some variclies produce a few large fruits, others many small ones, and the latter may be preferable for a small family.
