FRIEND OH TOI-: CPRCS'G is here at last and the first ''creatures" one dis- turbs when digging his garden are the earthworms. There are those who believe I hey do harm iu a garden and others who look upon them as a valuable "friend." Most garden earth docs not contain an overabundance of earthworms, which may bo found in excess in compost heaps or manure. They usually feed on dead vegetable mailer and so il is to good advantage to have them in a compost heap lo help It work better by helping it to decompose faster. They do no damage lo living plants. They aid in the aerlion of the soil and the casts or fresh earth which they bring to Ihe surface contains large amounts of planl food.

Last, but cerlninly not least are the liv- ing room and dining room with their unique features. The en- tire rear wall of the living room and part of the riining room wall are open lo the floor below, with a wrought iron rail- ing for security. The indoor gar- den pool and surrounding plant- Ings form part of the family room on Ihe lower level, rising feet above the floor. A flagstone seal in front of the pool gives it an elegant air.

I had heard1 something aboul this and out of curiousity was wondering which ones could be planted.11 Personally, I have never done this, but 1 liavn heard of people planting sweet peas and some vcgclables in the fall.
