(Staff Photo) YOUR GARDEN- Green Cover Crop Invaluable For Rehabilitating Tired Soil By HENKY FREE Good gardners everywhere are pretty much agreed that after clearing the vegetable patch of its crops a soil improvement program is in order. But why worry about the ir.e soil," asks the novice gardner, "didn't it produce a good harvest this year?" Yes, replies the Old Gardner, but when we garden on the same land, or even use a rotation plan, we upset nature's balance and it becomes necessary to rehabilitate the soil if we expect to maintain it in good tilth and again secure from it top quality vegetables. Wise gardners work with nature. They know that by adJing organic material they can improve the growth of plants and that it is possible to grow the best with a 1'Mle help from chemical' fertilizers. A good green cover crop with ma nure. spread over it in the fall and turned under in th.e spring will build a healthier soil, increase valuable plant food, add Jiumus and nitrogen and improve the tilth. Cover cropping benefits the garden during the winter months b'y preventing loss of valuaole topsoil from washing; by >-eventing the loss of soluble plant food •which it takes up and later adds to the soil; and increasing the supply of available nitrogen in the soil, especially when a leguminous crop, such as clover or winter vetch, is planted. Professor Alex Laurie, floriculturist, formerly of Ohio State University, declares that in tnn absence of manure, a good cover crop might be termed "green gold." He says: "Besides the nit- logen, the green manure takes up minerals from all parts of the soil reached by the roots and upon the decomposition of the roots and Sophia Loren, Cary Grant in "Pride and the Passion" with Frank Sinatra.

The rye grasses — winter, perennial and Rosen's—make ideal green 'manure crops for this section of the country. All are hardy during the winter and will continue growth during warm periods wnen the ground is not frozen and jiof covered with snow. Rye grasses germinate quickly and make rapid early growth. The more humus in the soil, the more alive it will be and the better the crops. Whatever crap is sown it must be turned under nexl spring while it is green and succulent if it is to properly decay and fulfill its task as a green manure.
