Loose shingles can be taken care of with a few dabs of asphalt cement underneath. Then nail down with roofing nails and cover the nail heads with more cement. If the shingle needs replac- ing, carefully lift up the one above it and pry up the ex- posed nails. When you have the mills out, slide out the dam- aged shingle and put in a new one. Place the new nails so that Ihe upper shingle covers them. Put some asphalt cement on the nail heads and press the new shingle down. Avoid working with asphalt shingles during cold weather. They get brittle. Wood shingles must be split and (he pieces removed. Use a hacksaw blade to cut out the old nails. Slide a new shingle ui place.

If this segre- gation was not carried out there more than likely would be variations here, because pol- lination will have occurred be- tween the worst plants as well as the best, and the worst char- acteristics of plants always show up in future generations The production of Fl seed is a slow, costly process, and exact ly the same cross must he made each year to gel the de- sired hybrid The crossing nf varieties and the dovelipment of new varieties ran he a very interesting hobby for the home fardencr, but generally it is best left to the professional seed grower.
