Conversely, the date is set back a day when crossing the line in an east- ward direction. YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. ONIONS FOR EXHIBITION T-fflS may seem a little early in the year to be talking onions, but if you want to grow large specimens from .seed, you should be giving some thought now as to what varieties to plant and when. Onions add so much flavor to Boups, stews, salads and many other dishes, and are, perhaps, me of the most important ve- getables grown in our garden. As to varieties, there are many excellent ones available. I have had good success with Ailsa Craig, Riverside Sweet Span ish and Fiosla. Sow seed any time now as they do require a long period of growth, espe- cially if you want them for show purposes. Use a compost of either 2 parts loam, 1 part peat moss and 1 part of sand, or 1 part each of loam, peat moss and perlite. Either use a Dei or sow three seeds in a 3 inch pot, thinning out to 1 latter. Germination is best at around 65 degrees. Once up give lots of light and a temper- ature of around 50 degrees. When growing well, at the "hairpin" stage, transfer ones from flats into 3 inch pots. The empty seed coats will still be OB the tips of the seedlings1. Do not completely cover bulb. There will be a slight distur- bance of the roots at this stage, but not as much if left to grow larger. It is most important to prevent damage to the roots as vital time is lost if any are broken. After a day or two, when the plants have recovered from transplanting and show signs of growing, place in the best light possible, as the aim is for sturdy onions. At this dull period of the year it is a good idea not to overwatcr the plants. As onions are gross feeders, they should be fed weekly with a complete fertilizer. Before selling out in the garden gradually harden plants off by exposing to cool- er conditions. About May 15, the plants may bo sot out in the garden, Two weeks before doing so, the ground should be well prepared by spreading some I1-1B-0 fertilizer at the rate of one handful to the square yard, along with some manure, working into the lop 4 inches of soil. Also, before planting, work somo Diazinon into the rows to prevent mag- gots attacking the onions. Do not set plants deeply as this encourages thick necks. The bulb should just rest on the top of the soil with the roots and bottom of bulb anchored firmly into the earth. Even- tually thin plants to stand 6 to 10 inches apart for show speci- ments. Give each plant a cup- ful of fertilizer using 10-52-17, 2 tbsps, to a gallon of water. Feed a liquid fertilizer once a week. During the season as the onions grow, the earth should be kept away from the bulb to aid in belter growth. It also helps to develop a good outside covering or skin which will aid in the keeping and storage throughout the winter. Only cultivate between the rows as the earth must be kept firm at all times around the onions. Any weeds around the plants should be pulled out by hand. In the late summer, the onions stop swelling and the foliage gradually topples over. This is the start of the ripening process. Some leaves may have to be carefully bent over by hand. For exhibition purposes, dig up several days before a show and lay onions in sun to dry off skin do not peel, Only clean away dirt and any broken or untidy pieces of skin Some shows call lor cutting the tops off close to the onion, others recommend that the lops be cut off la within a few inches of the top of the onion and then bent over and tied. Before entering a show, please read the rules and regulations to avoid disappointment and disqualification. Storing of onions will be dealt with in another article some time in late summer. Build yourself a greenhouse By DONALD R. BRANN Until a few years ago, green- house gardening was consider- ed a rich man's hobby, but to- day, thanks to a simplified, low cost method of construc- tion, almost everyone can af- ford to build and operate this greenhouse. By building the house adjacent to a cellar door, basement, or first floor win- dow, no special heating unit is required. If you decide to build over a basement entry door, you gain a vestibule that keeps cold blasts from entering the basement, keeps basement i-er, while you can grow flowers the year round. While the pattern explains luw to build a greenhouse ma- nuring 8 x 9, it can be built any other size by following proce- dure outlined. Novices are amazed to discover the num- ber of geraniums that can be Jrown the year round in this amount of space. Anyone who can follow sim- ple slcp-by-stcp directions nnd easy lo understand illustrations should have no difficulty build- ing this greenhouse. Every step is clearly described in lan- guage everyone can under- stand. The pattern contains a complete list of materials that tells what to buy, where each is used. It also tells how to build a rack for plant box sup- ports from 1" pipe, boxes from 2x6 spruce.

Paint spruces up a basement By MR. FIX Basements toid to run to ex- tremes. Either they are finish- ed and paneled and good enough to live In, or they are left as they are. In the latter case they become drab, dirty and damp. Even if expensive and ela- borate finishing is not for you, it Is possible to make your basement into a bright, attrac- tive and comfortable place to work and play. All you need is some paint and a little time to apply it. Once you have clear- ed the basement for cleaning and painting, you may find that what junk you don't throw out could be better stored on shelves. Cleaning up is the first step toward getting organized. Paint will do more than im- prove the appearance. It will make a basement more dry. Slight moisture and seepage can be halted with heavy duty waterproofing. If you have ma- jor seepage, don't try to cure it from inside. Proper founda- tion waterproofing is done on the outside. The only difference between painting a basement and any other room is to make certain that you are using a paint suit- able for masonry surfaces. Most modem latex paints will work well on masonry but check the label to be certain. Preparation consists in clean- ing mainly. Major defects or even small cracks should be repaired before beginning. Va- cuum all dust and dirt. A brush and clear water will take off quite a bit. Use a detergent if you find stubborn stains. Present coatings that arc peeling or flaking should be scraped off or the new paint will flake away with the old. If the masonry is new, you have a powdery coating on it, This is known as efflorescence. You can coat the wall with spe- cial masonry conditioners to end the problem. You can re- move it by scrubbing with one part of muriatic acid to five parts of water. Work with rub- ber gloves and don't splash any in your eyes. Hinse with water and a little ammonia to get rid of UK acid. If there is mildew, scrub with household bleach and water. You may have to do this sev- eral times, rinsing with clear water in between and allowing to dry each lime. Any paint you use must be alkali-proof. It also must be permeable so that some mois- ture can breathe through it without making it peel. Aside from latex paints (tic likeliest thing lo use is i Port- land cement paint.
