Torton Star Syndicate) TOMATOES IN THE GARDEN AS SOON as the first warm days of spring appear, there are some people who want to get everything planted in the garden. About three weeks ago as I was walking down the lane, I saw a lady putting out her tomato plants. Unless she was prepared to really protect them in some way I'm afraid she will have to replant them. As I write this article at 2 p.m. May 16, it is snowing and the temperature is 34 degrees F. Tomatoes do not take too kindly to cold weather and if it goes below 50 degrees F., a check in growth occurs with the result the first fruit may be lost. This means valuable time is lost before they begin to set fruit again. When purchasing plants, sel ect ones that are healthy look ing, stocky, dark green in color and at least 8 inches in height. Tomatoes require a deeply dug, well-drained, fertile soil. About a week before setting out in the garden, work in some 1148-0 fertilizer, at the rate of one handful to the square yard. Plants may be set out in the garden the end of May if some protection such as plastic or Hotkaps is given. It is very important to see the plants are properly "hard ened" off before exposing to outdoor conditions. With most plants, this means keeping them at a temperature of around 40 to 50 degrees F. for at least a week before being set out in the garden. Tomatoes, however, do not benefit from this cold treatment and so are "hardened" off by reducing the water, but not allowing them to dry out completely, or bud drop could result. They may be exposed to the sun and air during a warm day and taken in at night if the temperature goes below 50 degrees F. When ready to plant out, water thoroughly, about an hour before vou are ready to transplant. Select a day that is dull PREFERRED INNOCENCE Only six of 100 patients diagnosed as having cancer and told so by their doctors said they would have preferred not to know. or do this task in the evening, if possible, to enable the plants to recover from the shock of this operation. The indeterminate or staking tomatoes are set 20 to 24 inches apart and the determinate or non-staking 15 to 20 inches apart. After the hole is dug, gently cut between the plants and separate carefully. Tomatoes may be planted lower than they were originally - the bottom leaves are covered with earth. This does no harm as they are stem-rooting and readily form roots on that part of the stem below the ground. A high phosphorous fertilizer is essential during the early stages of growth. Following transplanting, give each plant a cupful of 10-52-17 fertilizer, dissolving 2 tbsps. in a gallon of water. Water weekly with this for three weeks to get plants off to a good start. After three or four trusses have formed, it is recommended that the mam growing Up be cut out at the first or second leaf above the last truss. Remove all side shoots as soon as they develop. Any bottom leaves that turn yellow should also be removed. Tomatoes that are staked hold their fruit off the ground and so ripen more evenly- Mrs. H. - My onions were ruined last year by white worms around the roots. What can I do about this for this summer, Ans.. - These are onion maggots which can be controlled by using an Onion Maggot Dust made specially for this purpose. NOTE: AH questions should be sent with self - addressed-stamped, envelope to - Mrs. I. R. Young, 3620 Centre B. St. N.W.. Calgary 43. Due to the number of letters asking more than one question it is requested in future enqoiriei that only ONE question be submitted each time as it is impossible for Mrs. Young to reply to all correspondence and do her practical gardening as well. Garden vegetables for winter use Most of us know that a well-planned garden will provide delicious garden-fresh vegetables throughout the entire summer. It can also be a significant factor in keeping those ever-rising food costs more in line. Few people realize, however, (hat they can continue to enjoy both high - quality vegetables and large food savings over an extended period of time. "How?" you ask - well it's quite simple. Most gardens will yield far more produce than can possibly be utilized and in a prime, freshly - harvested condition. It is wise then to store most of this produce for varying periods of time. McKenzie Seeds offer a host of "Suitable - For - Storage" vegetable varieties. Some of these varieties that you might include in your vegetable garden are as follows: Beet - Good For All, cabbage - Danish Ballhead, carrot -Red Cored Chantenay, leek - Monstrous Carentan, onion - Autumn Spice Hybrid, parsnip - Hollow Crown, squash - Green Hubbard, Swede turnip- Laurentian. Home storage of garden produce is easy if you follow toes* recommendations: 1. Temperature of storage room should be between 32 degrees - 40 degrees F. 2. Relative humidity should be between 85 per cent - 95 per cent, except for onion and squash which require 60 per cent - 65 per cent. 3. Provision.should be made in your storage room for good air circulation. 4. Only good produce should be brought into storage. Do not try to store bruised or partially spoiled vegetables. So you see, you too can cut food costs and enjoy quality vegetables during those long winter months. Killex destroys lauin weeds even 2,4-D misses Right?
