Amateur gardeners starting |>lttnts indoors, often find them injured or killed by a little gas from the I'.itrhen range. Tomatoes grow best in n well- drtiliii'd, sandy, loamy soil to which lime lins been added. A loose, limed soil encourages deeper root growth.

Plants for late, varieties fan bo grown hi the nard3ii from svccl sown in mid-May, noil. results me obtained If these Jilanls are not transplanted. The average home gardener should buy [Jotted plants offered by dealers at the time they should be planted out. The best plnnls are stocky and generally no more than 8 to 12 inches high. I'ltinls grown indoors should be transplanted In the seedling singe from the lint to individual containers when four to five Inches high, transferred from the warm house to the cold frame or cool room where llic temperature can be maintained between 55 and CO degrees. This will retard growth, and so harden off the plants. If your, plants ore tali and sunnily, pinch them liactt to make them stocky.

'••'•- I feet apart each way. The home gardener cramped for space should train his plnnts to stakes set about, 21'j feet npart each way. The early! Victor requires no staking as it is! a small plant nnd not given to! sprawling. Since the tomato root system is rather meager, a mulch of some sort is recommended to check weed growth, conserve • soil ' moisture and reduce labor of cui-' livation. I Staked tomatoes are pruned by removing Iho stem sprouts which develop al the leaf crotches. Do not prune lop unlit plant growth is above the stake. Tight nround (he stem, is the rule ill tying. Use strong soft twine, passing under nearest: leaf. Tic every 8-10 inches and avoid lying blossom clusters between the stem and stake.
