EXHIBITION TT WILL soon be that time of year again when horti- cultural shows v.ill bo in evi- dence. Although it gener- ally been a poor growing sea- son with so much moisture and below average sunshine, the "show" must go on. To exhibit vegetables, there are certain rules and regula- tions one must adhere lo. When J was pulling some rhubarb a day or so ago, it occurred lo me how few people know the proper way to prepare it before putting it n the show bench. It is very simple. While it is eaten as a fruit, rhubarb is exhibited as a vegetable, Condition is VEGKTABLKS j plastic bag out ii.to the garden uniform.

The leaf should be [rimmed off at a slight angle, leaving about one j inch. The color should be bright red and attractive. A good quality is Indicated by lack of toughness when broken. Toma- toes are sometimes exhibited in two classes red and green. Color in red specimens is important, and the darker, the better. Both, however, have more or Jess the same qualifi- cations. They should bo firm, smooth, without rra'jk.s blem- ishes and the stems .MUST be left on. In this way, a judge j is able to tell whether thy I have been purchased or grown. They should also be uniform in size, shape and color and at lesst .1 inches in diameter and r.eHher under-ripe or over-ripe for t'ne red sr.cdrnon.s. Most people display pens fairly well al a show, hul Ihfirc are some of tire that could hf. stressed more. I rlon't think there are, rarely more than one or two people out of ten who leave lh> "bloom" on pea.s when exhibiting them. This is the dull color on the pods and MUST be left on for first quality exhibition peas. Take a pair of .scissors and a handling peas as they will re- move the bloom. The bottom point should lw intact. Pods should be large, fre.sh, uni- form, free from blemishes and properly filled. Hold up to the light (by the stern) anil if any poas are missing or underde- veloped, discard. They should not be over-ripe and the color should be deep green. A judge will open up a pod to taste for sweetness, and freshness. (Jrccn and wax beans ara an impor- tant vegetable, grown by thous- ands of people.
