nfODAY, MAT 10, 1918. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVELLE. PA. PAGE ELEVEN. -TO HCU» YOU U.% DEPT HOW TO TELL WHEN VEGETABLES ARE READY FOR USE ON TABLE Veritable* Like Theae, Grown hi the Summer and'Stored Until Needed, Vary .;. Winter, Diet. ' ' ' Such Vegetables as leaf lettuce, kale, ^spinach, .parsley, chard, turnip, mns- 'tard, and any other osed at a green or salad may be gathered as soon as .large enough to pay for Ur* gathering. .It fa an excellent plan to ma*- a practice of thisnlng these crops and using the plants removed a* green) or for ·otber purpose*. Chard mat be used while young as It BOOH passes Its best ·rage. Kale should W used while relatively young, as -when young It Is of maeb. better quality than when allowed to become-large. It H a tar better pui to make frequent rocceseiva plaaUngs of..the foliage crops so as to have SDpyly of tender, sijuiilttut greens or a*U4 material continually available. OJtobe artJebekes are ready ft* nee as too* M tl» bur Is fanned and mast be Ythartdi before tbe bioasoms appear. · The bur is ike bod of the flower and Is nud fa OH sane way as turnips or kohl-nM. ."-· · Jerusalem aittchekas are nsed in tha aaoe way as-potatoes. They are retdT* ferns* m the antnam and may remain in th* groood actfl needed. AsaaragsjB la ready foe use as soon as the ycrag, shoots »re three or four Irnihes lonf. aH»*«d to grow too teat the sheets wffl bccaasa tooth and ·woedyJ ." '·" ' ' · ' · . Becis' (apian) an rsaiy fat nse as ·MB as oW-bean Is aboot halt formed. In jthe atrlnglesa varieties the pods may be aUawed to niaain on th« plant a Utae longer than the ether (acts, but In every ease they shoold be gathered while young and tender. Lima beans shooM be gathered as soon as the pods are/well filled out, but before the pods begin to turtt yeHow. Tbey sionld be gathered while the beans tbeaiselTes still hare a fresh, greas appearance. After the beans become white they are:past their prime. Beets should be used while young and tender. The beets may be thinned as soon as they are two or three Inches tall ;and the ones that are removed can be used In greens. Tae entire crop should be nsed before they, are more than two Inches In diameter. Successive plantings at Intervals of two weeks are advisable so that a supply of tender beets will always be available. Brussels sprouts are ready for nse as soon as the beads are well'formed and begin to crowd each other. Cabbage U ready for use as'soon as the heads are well formed and well blanched In the interior. Chinese cabbage Is ready for ase as SOOQ as wen blanched. Carrots may be used as soon as they reach a size to justify pulling them. Many gardeners follow the practice of thinning the carrots and using those' removed* 'as vegetables or in soups. They may be grown as an all-season crop or as a late crop following something else. Size Is not important, 'but very large ones' are Inclined to be tough and pithy. Cauliflower Is ready for use as soon as the bleached heads are irall filled out. with the masses of globular mate^ rial which If allowed to 'develop would form seed. It Is Important that It be; cnt before the beads become old. Celery Is ready for use as It reaches a good,size nnd. Is blanched.! It niay be nsed green'for stews, soups,) etc. : Collards may: be used as soon as the.. rosette of leaves which Conns the bead is developed and blanched. Sweet corn should ; oot be polled liur til the ears are well filled out This Is about the,-time the silk begins to die. _~vVhen tbe milk becomes doughy the corn Is too old for table use. - Cucumbers are ready for use when-' ever large .enough,' and before they 1 have begun to turn yellow. ' Eggplants may be nsed at any time after.the fruit is large enough to jus-. rlfy picking. It should not be allowed to remain on the bushes too long or decay will set In. Endive should be used as soon as Wanchei Blanching may be accomplished by tying the leaves together s£ SOOD as the plants are well grown. Kbhl-rabl must .be nsed while tender. This may easily be determined by cutting the thickened stem which constitutes the edible portion. If tough and stringy, It Is too old. Unsfcmeloas^--Color, size and ganer- ai appearance serve as gntdx la ten- Ing when they are ready to pick. They should not be allowed to remain on the vires until dead ripe, as they ara pastithelr prime when fully rlpmcd. . Watermelons.--Ripeness --t» '; dater- mlned by sound, and by the graeral appearance. A ripe :melon when struck with the hand, gives a dan sound, .which Is readily recognized after' a few trials. Okra should be gathered while the' pods ara very young and tender and while the seeds are still soft Onions may be pulled and used as bunch onions when the bulbs are from a quarter to a half inch in diameter. If for boiled onions the bulbs may be any size. · : · · _, ; Parsnips are not used "until late In tbe antnmn when the ground Is frozen. Freezing Improves their flavor; in fact. It is not considered advisable to vse them as a summer vegetable. Size is of small importance, but those from 1% to 2 inches in diameter are considered best. Peas are ready for picking as soon as .the pods are well filled and while the peas are etin green,, yet before either the peas become hard or the pods whitish or yellowish. Peas shouM not be gathered when too young, imd If too old will be of poor qnallty. Peppers may be gathered at any time Tml£ they begin to turn red. Far torn* purposes they are allowed to ti- pca, but usually are picked green. ' Early potatoes may be used at any time daring their growth. An old- time rule Is to begin digging them when they have reached the size of a ben's egg. It Is advisable to/begin ua- ingtthem when they have reached this size, digging the supply frora day to day as needed, aJlo-*lag the bulk of the crop to grow until needed or until they mature. Lete potatoes should be allowed to grow until the vices die or are killed by frost. Sweet potatoes are of poor quality unless allowed to reach maturity. The simplest test is to break one of the potatoes.' If drops of water collect on the broken surface the crop is not mature. Tils crop grows until frost kills the vines, but It Is permissible to use them quite a while before the end of the growing season. Badtahes may be used as soon as large enough- A common practice Is to begin thinning them as soon as large enough. They should all be used while ycnmg and lender.. Salsify is grown and handled in the same way as parsnips and the same rules may be fol.lowed In Its use. Summer squashes are ready for use. as soon as large enough. They, :how; ever, should not be picked when very small, as when young they are watery and of poor quality. AS soon as the shell hardens they are toe old for table use. . ' . ' Winter squashes shbuH be 'allowed to grow until the vines ,die or -until frost kills them,."but "rthe"; squashes should .be stored before being frosted. Tomatoes shonld'be picked when fully ripe, bnt should/not be allowed to remain 'on' the "vines until soft. -It Is not a soot!' practice to pick them "while partly ripe, as the flavor Is injured by this practice. Turnips for greens may be used as soon as the foliage is large enough to jastlfy picking; if for the roots, when the-roots are from 1H to 2 Inches In diameter. When planted as a late summer crop for roots for storage, they should be allowed to grow until hard freezing occurs. Those from 2 to .8 inches in diameter-are best Larger ones may be used for stock feed. The watermelon requires considerable room, and unless there Is an abundance of space available it should not be planted In the garden. It is a heat-loving plant - and the seeds should not be planted in the open until the ground is warm. This will be about one month after -the last hard frost. They do best in a sandy soil, and require plenty or frell : r»tted manure for their best development. The usual method Is to plant them in hills made up with plenty . of .-n-ell- rotted manure, about 10 .feet apart each way. Some eight or ten seedn should be placed in each hill, and "when the plants are well established they should be thinned to four plants In * hill.
