Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - May 25, 1966, Bennington, Vermont I i a he Niit j Ermont Home g offers Quality by of to Mattoon Arlington. A chief virtue of a House and lot is the privilege of having a vegetable Garden. Home grown vegetables have a Quality not to be found in those that come from a supermarket. In addition to Quality the Home plot can provide you with kinds of vegetables not found in the Market. Vegetables next a Sun a friable humus and workable soil Good subsoil drainage and equally Good air drainage. If the plot selected has never grown vegetables soil samples should be taken. Either your county Extension agent or the Experiment station at com will Analyse them and furnish a report. Any treatment recommended for vegetable rowing should be carried out. If the plot has been in Sod an application of chlordane to dispose of Wireworks so often found under Sod. Would be Wise. A Well planned and Well tended Small plot will yield As much As a poorly cared for Large Garden. For the average family a Garden 15 by 20 or at most 20 by 30 feet is ample. Of course the vegetables chosen Are those your family specially enjoys. Among the More popular Are let eans tomatoes beets carrots lettuce and summer and Winter squashes. If the plot is Large enough Corn can be added on the North Side where it won t Shade other veer a Are for 0 Fhi Dix to it in pm or min vii2f0 Al Fox rugs car poll beautify your porch 9 x 12 rugs As As m9,s tables. Put the tomatoes on the North or East Side. If pole Beans Are included these should be located on the North Side. Train the tomatoes to a stake for better yield and cleaner fruit. Bush Beans Green or Wax should be grown in rows. Sow to to 15 feet of Row every to Days from May 20 to the Middle of june for continuous yield. The Kentucky wonder pole bean is still popular and productive. During the Short growing season of the Northeast Bush Lima Beans do very much better than pole Limas. Set out lettuce plants especially the butter head Type As soon As danger of Frost is passed. Keep the plants a foot apart in the Row. When you sow carrots mix radish seed with the Carrot seed. Radishes germinate quickly while carrots Are slow to appear. The radishes will have been harvested before the carrots Are bothered by their presence. Beets of you like them Are especially tasty when pulled from the Kitchen Garden and cooked right away. Two plantings three weeks apart will provide beets during August september and october. If your Garden is Large enough and you like cucumbers two Hills will provide ample space for several weeks. If a Fence protects the Garden from Mau raders the cucumbers can be trained Over the Fence thus taking less space in the Garden. Two or at most three Hills of summer Squash Are normally ample for the average family. A of to grow Corn make successive plantings to Days apart for continuous yield. The Superior Quality of Home grown Corn is due largely to the Short space of time which elapses to it tween picking and cooking. The longer the time lapse after harvesting the More sugar is changed to starch in the kernels. That is Why Corn in the markets is never As Sweet As that from the Home Garden. If cabbage Broccoli cauliflower or Brussels sprouts Are to be grown plants should be bought to be set out. Don t begin working the soil too Early in the season because you gain nothing in time and you May harm the soil. If the soil is Well supplied with Plant food do no fertilizing until the plants Are Well established. Then Side dress the rows with a Light application of 5-10-5 fertilizer. A of water is essential for Quality vegetables. With the moisture Content of most soils in the Northeast Low because of a deficiency of rain for the last four years it is essential that water be applied during every dry period. If this is impossible because of local regulations use mulches Between the rows to reduce evaporation.
