GOOD vegetable garden will pro

the vegetables that may be canned or
stored in the cellar for winter use.
Many farmers object to a garden as
causing too much work. That is large
ly because they make it so. The lar
gest item of work Is hoeing, and If the
garden is properly planned and man
aged little of that will need to be done.
Tbe mistake most often made is in the
location of the garden, it is put in a
little corner back of the bouse where
there Is no room to use horse tools. It
is much better to plant a few fruit
trees in such a space and locate tbe
garden some place where It can be
worked by horsepower.

During cold uigbts tbe hotbed should
be covered with straw or old carpets

plants should be watered in the morn

great a reduction of temperature.
A cold frame Is almost as necessary
as a hotbed. Tbe plants raised in a
hotbed are very tender and are liable
to be injured if trausplauted directly
to the garden. The cold frame is
made the same as a hotbed except that
no manure is used. After tbe plants
have obtained a good start in tbe hot
bed they should be transferred to the
cold frame. The plants in the cold
frame are gradually accustomed to
the outside air by leaving tbe sash up
for longer periods each day. This
transplanting also helps the tomatoes
and cabbages in another way, in that
it makes them thicker stemmed and
causes better root development.
stocky plant of this kind Is always a
better grower and yielder.
