Get Porch Boxes Ready For The Spring Flowers Several Allamakee County gardeners are readying their porch boxes for flower growing, says County Extension Director Fred C. O'Riley. He says that Iowa State University Horticulturist Charles Sherwood reports Iowans can have plants in porch boxes successfully in March—if they're willing to bring the boxes inside at night and when cold snaps occur. Sherwood suggests that you be careful, in making porch boxes, to be sure all joints in the boxes are tight. Strips of tin on the insides, screws or galvanized nails will help tighten them. Give boxes not made of redwood or metal n pre-coat of a safe rot retardant containing copper naptha- nate (sold under many brand names). Then coat insides of all boxes, wood metal, with black screen enamel. Provide three-fourths inch holes every 12 inches in the bottoms of your boxes (staggering the holes is best). To keep the drain holes open, lay old silk stockings or strips of plastic screen wire in the boxes, Sherwood suggests. Sterilize all of last year's boxes with household bleach or any good antiseptic. Boiling water also does a good job, if you use plenty. Sherwood says a mixture of one- third sand, one-third peat and one- third good garden soil will give you fast-growing plants in your porch boxes. He adds that, for best results, match the plants you want to grow this spring with the right box. Put geraniums, petunias, begonias and most vines and fern-like plants in boxes at least six inches wide and six inches dcot, as mossrososanda?. along well in sligh J« .

TERRACE CONSTRUCTION MAKING PROGRESS "Terrace construction in the county is making progress each year," reported Garland Byrnes, Chairman of the Allamakee County Soil Conservation District. "Thirty-five miles of terraces were constructed durine 1960 compared to 33 miles in 1958 and 31 miles in 1959." Jim Barnes, U. S. Soil Conservation Service, expects that 40 miles of terraces will be built in the district this year. "So far, we have 14 farmers who plan to build terraces this spring," Barnes said. "The majority of these men have built terraces before so they are apparently satisfied with the benefits terraces gave them. In addition, we have several farmers who carried on a regular program of terrace construction and now have all of their cropland terraced. There are also others who expect to completely terrace their cropland." Farmers to date who are planning terrace construction this spring are Jim Brazell, Alfred Thompson, Robert Buckmaster, Orville Nelson, Gaylord Thompson, Dayton Schellsmidt, Frariklin Weymiller, Mickey Madden, Leo Livingston, George Riek, Emil Krapfl, Tom McDowell, Maurice Simmonds, and John F. Kelly. ' Buy! Sell! Hire! Trade! Rent! Lost! Found! Employment! You'll find it in the Herald Want Ads.
