Barbara, as you may surmise, is having difficulties with her lawn but is determined to make the best of it. She calls her poem "Ode To My Lawn Who Need Not Be Ashamed." and it goes as follows: "No. my suburban lawn is not a carpet smooth And in any garden contest it would lose. It's filled with common. noxious "weeds" -All you need for a Euell Gibbons feed. Cress for salads or cooked greens are good. If you tried it, you'd like it -- I know you would. For a h a r d y vegetable there's stately burdock. Or as an aphrodisiac it might give- you a shock. From my wild strawberries I may make Excellent jams or delicious short cake. So. as prices go higher and you're in a stew, Envy me -- you can't eat Kentucky blue!" * * * IT SOUNDS ridiculous to say that vegetable gardens need water. Garden people say that vegetables need the equivalent of about an inch of rain a week. By my rough calculations I estimate that local gardens have had it -- up to August 23. 1976 (2:30 p.m.). Seriously though, unless our weather varies drastically from past years, we'll fleed to get out the old garden hose before too long and water. When that time comes, do remember that you shouldn't give a fast sprinkle over the garden and call it quits. The water should soak into the ground. If, you have a "soaker" -- a hose with holes in it -- all the better. Just snake it out among the rows and let it trickle. Move it from time to time to another spot. A thorough soak- .ing once a week should do the trick. remember that this mulch should be applied four to six inches deep in an established garden. You naturally wouldn't put down a six-iach layer of mulch when your plants are only two inches high. Before putting down the mulch, get rid of the current weeds and apply a side-dressing of fertilizer. (Moreabout this further on). Other people use such mulch material as shredded newspapers and strips of black polyethylene. It's just a matter of what appeals to you. or what happens to be on hand. I personally would rather have the weeds than use black polyethylene. But we all have our little foibles. * * * IF YOUR cabbage plants are being eaten by cabbage worms, try sprinkling salt on the heads a couple of times. This is the advice of Jerry- Baker, the author-lecturer- garden authority. Baker also says you should use 44 per cent chlordane for root maggots. If cut worms are a problem, place aluminum foil collars two inches high around the stems of your pepper or tomato or whatever plants are being eaten. He says to be sure the collars extend an inch below the soil. chemicals should not be used on edible plant parts. Some should not be used just before vegetables ripen. When you're using a dust or spray, cover the entire plant, including the upper and lower leaf surfaces. Some people prefer sprays because dusts are rather unattractive. But it doesn't matter whether you use a liquid spray or a powdery dust -- both will wash off in a rain or otherwise lose effectiveness, so be prepared to do the job over and over all summer long. It's rather fun to do. if you follow the instructions and don't breathe'the dust or get the spray all over you. Incidentally, there are dusts available in' containers that can be pumped by hand, using the container itself as a dusting machine. When you use it all up you throw away the empty container. Or you can buy expensive spraying equipment, mixing the concoction yourself. If you decide to go in for long-lasting sprayers and dusters you'll have to take care of them, and you'll have the boxes, bags and cans of chemicals to store and keep away from the children. All of this stuff -- whether already-mixed in disposable sprayers or dusters, or in packaged form -- must be kept locked up so that the little ones can't get to it. And some of the big folks shouldn't be allowed to handle it either! MRS. C. C.

Weeds rob your plants of water, nutrients and light. They may also be breeding grounds for diseases and insects. . . . When your garden soil is workable again after the rains ( d o n ' t try to work m u d ) , sharpen your hoe and get after those weeds. Don't cultivate too deeply, however, because many vegetable plant roots are near the surface. Leave the soil in a loose, comfortable-looking condition and any subsequent rainfall or hbse soaking will be absorbed easily. A lot of people put down mulches to control the weeds. In addition to controlling weeds, mulch keeps moisture in the soil and keeps the ground cool. If you put down hay. straw, or grass clippings. NOW ABOUT fertilizer. You will find that your vegetables will benefit from a side- dressing of fertilizer. Be sure to read the instructions on the bag of fertilizer you buy. .These instructions will tell you the proper amounts and so on. How do you side dress a vegetable? You scatter fertilizer on both sides of the row. several inches from the plants, and cultivate it into the earth. Remember; however, not to dig too deeply, because of the roots. Don't apply side-dressing when the leaves are wet. and avoid getting fertilizer on the leaves at all times, as it may burn them. How do you a p p l y side- dressing when you have a six- i n c h l a y e r of m u l c h l a i d down? That, my friends, is a good question. I have absolutely no idea. * * * TjHERE ARE some gardeners who are non-mulch persons, preferring to spend-long hours in the sun wielding a hoe and looking farmer-ish. There are some. also, who let the weeds grow, contending that they help shade plants from the hot sun. Their gardens always look very messy, but I've noticed they seem to have great quantities of fine looking vegetables. Now don't call me and say I'm contradicting myself. I'm merely stating both sides. Bnilcy-SlinffiM' The Lydia Rokson Memorial Presbyterian Church will be the setting July 13 for the marriage of Miss Drema J. Bailey to David K. Shaffer.

ROUTE 10 EAST, HWTRKTOd, W. VA. PHONE (3MJ73I-M17 QIT Actually, this gives you a variety of choices. I'm not saying which is best. There have been years when we had a neat, weed-free garden, c a r e f u l l y c u l t i v a t e d a n d soaked and de-bugged. There have been years when the weeds got out of control, we neglected to do anything about bugs, and the tomato stakes listed picturesquely to starboard. We always had tomatoes until we were sick of them, and corn and squash and beans and cucumbers enough to give away. It's just what you feel inclined to do. Don't make gardening a dreaded bore. Enjoy it. * * * ABOUT INSECTICIDES and fungicides. Organic gardeners don't use chemical pestitices and weed killers. We have talked about organic gardening frequently in the past. Companion plantings and trap plants are familiar words to most of us nowadays, but many gardeners still feel the need to use some chemical control. If you are in doubt about what to use. contact your c o u n t y a g r i c u l t u r a l agent. The chemical Sevin is perhaps the wrest insect control, and it is available in a variety of preparations. Its only drawback, so far as we know, is that it kills honey bees. So you shouldn't use it when the blossoms are out. Rotenone and pyrethrum are non-poisonous to humans and may be used on your crops nearing harvest. A mixture of melhoxychlor and malathion is most often recommended and seems to be one of the best insecticides for the home garden. You can get it in a wetlable powder (it can be made into a liquid spray) or a dust. Fungicides are used to control diseases of plants. They can be applied to the plant surface in sprays or dusts, or used in liquid form to drench the soil. Among the best are zineb. captan. maneb. and copper. Again, read the instructions on the label. Please notice the proper time to apply, and the amount. Some Dahmer-Walker Mr. and Mrs. Kugene Dahmer of 19 Woodward Court are announcing the engagement pi their daughter.
