Victory Gardens PREPARING THE SOIL, 'Now we come to some of the hardest work of gardening, that of cleaning off the garden space and plowing or spading it. All weeds, plant stalks, and any other debris should be raked off before anything else is done. Don't expect your plowman to do this work for you as he is far too busy at that time of the year to take time for such work. When your garden space is cleaned off, in all cases stable manure should be applied If it can be secured. Where stable manure is not •available, commercial fertilizer is advisable. The merchant who sells you this will advise you regarding the ibest general purpose ferti'izer for garden use. Do not use a lawn ferttilizer on your garden as this contains far too much nitrogen. One containing about 5 percent nitrogen, 8 per cent phosphoric acid, and five per cent potash is quite suitable for soils in this locality. Do not apply more than 1H to 2 Ibs. per sundred square feet, as too much will do more injury than good. Stable manure can be applied in an* quantity that can be plowed or spaded under—the more the better. Nothing is to be gained by plowing or spading your garden until it is sufficiently dry; In fact, if It Is worked while too wet your garden will 'be injured for the entire jfea- son. The usual test is to squeeze a small amount of soil in tlte hand. If H is too wet for working It will adhere in a solid mass, but if it is Iry enough it will crumble ap;irt of itself. When the soil is right have your garden plowed and harrwed. If your garden is smal rake it all smooth as soon after plowing as possible. I like to have mine "floated" 'by dragging it with a plank or by letting the teeth of the harrow lie flat w,lth the plowman riding it over the garden. This costs a little extra but it is well worth it as it saves lots of ha<-d work raking and pulverizing the surface, which is necessary ^o secure a good seed bed. If you pHn to spade your garden there is very little help I can give you beyond recommending a good liniment and telling you how to take care of blisters on your hands. Dig it deep, break it up and rake it smooth is about all there is to it, but don't expect to feel like the same man when you finish. There will be nothing wrong with you that plenty of rest and sleep won't cure, and you'll be a better man than Gunga Din. If those men who plan on plowing or spading gardens this spring will drop trie a card giving theiv phone number, if they have a phone, and their street address, we will publish a Jls't *f tfeem for the convenience pf ney Pliiffi Citeek dub Meets*-* (The Plum Creek Social ahd Literary club met Wednesday at the home of Clara Gilbride with Evelyn Jenkins assisting hostess.
