Jordan""'^"" ^ Use Slakes and a Heavy Cord lo Layout Your Garden Hows. To make n garden drill you need slakes and a heavy cord. These are as necessary in laying oitt a Victory garden as in .laying out a house. The entire garden should be outlined so that the rows can be squared with the boundaries. Then place stakes for the first row, and stretch a line between them. . Having stretched the line, what comes next? Seeds arc sown m rows either in. drills, or lulls. A drill is n shallow continuous trench, while a hill is not an elevation, except in localities where (he rainfall is heavy. 11 usually means n spot where several seeds arc sown in n group, with the groups spaced at equal intervals in the row. . The depth of the drill is important. You often read that seeds should be sown to a dcplh of four times their diameter. But no oae tries to measure so exactly. A good general rule is to use the comer of. a hoe lo make a trench for small seeds, nbout half nn inch deep. Don't try to measure its dcplh, because gardening is nol so precise as lhat. Just bo sure it is as shallow trench as you can make. The main thing is lo make It straight, and Iliat Is easy it your hoe is sharp and your touch is light. Just think of your hoe as n pencil ami the cord as a rule, and draw a straight line in the loose garden soil the length of the row. A little practice will make you perfect. Modern practice favors shallow sowing; halt an inch for the small seeds, one lo (wo inches for peas, bonus and corn, and three inches for onion sets lo grow spring onions.
