IOWA FARM KERNELS. Southern Iowa gardeners usually find it safe to plant bush and pule snap beans the first week in May. Lima beans, however, are especially sensitive to cold soil and shouldn't be planted until after May 15. Edible soybeans also should be planted after May 15. In northern Iowa, it's safer to wait until about June 10. Bush beans should be planted one to l'i inches deep with the seed spaced two to three inches in the row. Allow two feet between rows for hand cultivation. Pole beans are planted one to two inches deep, four to six inches between plants and rows three feet apart. • * » • * A small planting of an early maturing variety of sweet corn might be made the first week in May. Perhaps some roasting cars can be enjoyed by the Fourth of July, if weather is favorable. The main planting, however, should not be made until May 15 or later. The seed should be treated with a seed protectant and disinfectant dust before planting. * * * * • Some protection from prevailing southwest winds can be obtained by planting rows of thickly planted field corn along the south and west borders of the garden. A late-maturing, tall- growing variety is recommended. Today's best buy—a Herald want ad. WE HAVE A COMPLETE FOOD SUPPLY FOR PICNICS POTITO CHIPS Glenn J.
