Oilier vegetables, such tiR cah- oage, cauliflower and celery will also stand frost but these are usually start- ed iu a hot-bed in order to save time in the field. Vegetables require higher temperatures than the above in order io grow well and which are injured by light frosts are beans, corn, cucum- bers, melons, potatoes and'squasb. Seed of late cabbage is not sown until lato in May but it will endure frost, and seed of Swede turnip should be sown late when required for the table.
