Home Economics Representative FRESH VEGETABLES ABE POSSIBLE EVERY MONTH An abundant supply of vegetables can be grown in the home garden.

Prepare the : ga'rden as early as soil conditions permit so that seeds of onions, cabbage, peas, and spinach can be planted with the opening of spring. It is always advisable to test your garden soil to determine whether it needs lime.' An application"of manure is suggested. Commercial 'fertilizers may be used advantageously at the. rate of 800 to 1,000 pounds per acre, or one pound for each. 40 to 50 square feet, applied broadcast-before planting and worked deeply into the coil. Light applications of "fertilizer may be applied one inch below or a long- side the rows of sweet corn, peas, or beans, and three inches deep near tomato or similar plants. Such commercial fertilizer mixtures as a 4-12-4, 3-12-6, 4-16-4, or 4-10-6 give good results where manure is applied annually, but 4-106, 5-10-5, or 4-8-8 is preferred when no manure is available. If rank growth occurs as a result of heavy annual applications of stable manure, it may be best to use only'IB or 20 per cent superphosphate.- Sow only the best varieties of seeds.
