shoestring Students arent the only ones who look forward to summer all year long If the thought of a tropical holiday an outdoor adventure or an historical attraction is what youre dreaming about it must be that summer is upon us For consumers who are already struggling to make ends meet paying for a vacation may seam like the impossible dream However with careful planning willbe able to afford some type of getaway vacation according to the Consumer Credit Counseling Service CCCS suggests budgetminded travelers follow three steps Step No 1 Plan in Advance Figure your budget As soon as possible sit down and look at your budget If you dont have one create one by tracking your income and expenses The budget helps you know how much money you have available for travel Research vacation offers Visit the library and check out travel guides or do some research through the Internet One site for the budget minded traveler is Step No 2 Consider the Options Centex Set priorities For some people staying on the beach is very important while others dont mind a short walk or ride Decide what aspects of a vacation are a real priority to your family and pay for mem but cut corners on items of lesser importance Be creative Day trips or a weekend getaway could take the place of an extended expensive vacation Check out campgrounds or state parks and consider vacationing with another family Shop around Airline and hotel rates vary dramatically Be sure to ask for the lowest rate Step No 3 How to Pay Evaluate your payment options Decide how you will pay for your vacation If you decide to get a loan shop around for the lowest interest Start saving now Set up a special vacation fund if not for this summer for next Plan how you will use credit Taking along a credit card on vacation makes good sense They reduce the need to carry large amounts of cash However use credit cards carefully Submitted by the Consumer Credit Counseling Service four best value everyday AA97045 By Michelle

RECORDED INFORMATION San Antonio By GEORGE BRIA Associated Press POUND RIDGE AP An old man contemplating his garden finds many changes over the years Hes changed the garden but the garden has also changed him The vegetable patch Im cultivating this summer seems a distant relative to the one started back in 1951 Sure Im still growing tomatoes But my tomatoes of yesteryear were bigger reflecting a youthful belief that big is better Now medium and small please me more And 1 find the smallest of all the currant no bigger than a gumdrop the tastiest Also I used to aim for the earliest feeling Id achieved something by picking the first tomato late in July instead of early August Now 1 bide my time the better taste of the later maturing fruit having made me a more patient and perhaps wiser man And Ive learned not to insist on trying to create from the garden what can be done quicker and better from the supermarket Thus Ive stopped using my own tomatoes to make pasta sauce 1 get a much richer and thicker sauce by mixing storebought cans of peeled and pureed tomatoes But 1 do use my own fruit to make greattasting dried tomato slices in the hydrator 1 used to grow a lot of pole string beans Now my only poles are for limas which grow as large as quarters in their pods and are richer tasting than the bush varieties Reflecting an increased appreciation of foreign produce my only string beans now are the sweet and tender baby frenchies as thin as shoelaces In recent years Ive also discovered fresh shell beans captivated by the taste and texture This is a gardeners perk for youre not likely to find shell beans in the market other than the dried ones The French flageolet excels in taste but in my garden its stingy in production One called Midnight Black Turtle on the other hand yields bountifully Another good yielder ie the Italian strawberry bean Borlotto A latterday showpiece of my garden is my hotbed a boxlike transparent plastic frame covering a paich of ground that is heated by the sun and an electric cable inserted three inches under the soil This gives me lettuce and other salad greens The vegetable patch Im cultivating this summer seems a distant relative to the one I started back in deep into January and starting again in March when the rest of the garden is frozen solid or covered with snow Ive dropped some early enthusiasms like trying to grow artichokes in an unfavorable climate I did succeed once in getting one artichoke head out of a dozen plants a thrill best left as a onceina lifetime experience I keep planting eggplant year after year hoping for mild weather to give me the good harvest get only now and then Here again the taste seems worth the effort Some plants like broccoli require hardly any effort producing good heads and florets from June into December and I swear by them Gardeners can be fickle too I used to love Swiss chard but mysteriously Ive stopped growing it Peppers on the other hand have gotten to occupy more and more space as I experiment with nuances of heat A mild chili called Anaheim has pleased me the most so far My asparagus patch now decades keeps producing hundreds of luscious spears year after year and seems sure to outlive me Funny about the asparagus I started growing it at one end of the garden but it did poorly So I shifted to the other end it was lucky I did so for it thrived No doubt a horticulturist could find solid reasons for the improvement I like to think that luck also rules in the garden EDITORS NOTE George Bria retired from the AP in 1981 after 40 years that included
