Tho first plantings should be ot

ties, such as Alaska, Rirst and Best,
and Uasdur. which do not require
supports. These varieties should be
followed by the large wrinkled type

The large growing varieties should be
supported on brush, on stringa attach
ed to stakes driven In thc ground, or
on wire netting. In order to have a
continuous supply of peas, plantings
should be made every 10 days or two
weeks until .warm weather. Peas
should be planted in late summer and
autumn for the fall garden, for which
the carly varieties are more desirable
than the late ones.
Peas should be planted about two
to three inches deep in row? three to
four feet apart. Some gardeners, how

Early potatoes should be planted ai
soon as the ground can bo prepare?
to good advantage. In Florida, pota
toes are usually planted In December
while in other sections of the lowei
South they are planted in January
In the upper South carly potatoes ar
usually planted In February, but ii
the extreme northern portion of th
South they are nut planted unti
March. As it is difficult to keep po

practice In some partB ot the So uti

Sweet potatoes: Thc Bweet potato t
is not usually handled ns a garden ?
crop in thc South, but it lu advisable
to have a" few plants In the garden for j
carly summer usc. On land thut is >
not thoroughly drained sweet potato
plants should bc set on ridges which ,
are thrown up hy means of a plow. |
Two or four furrows are usually ?
thrown together., and level? .' off with
a light' drag. The ridges should be j
broad, as narrow sharp ridges dry i
yul quickly. The fertilizers recoin?
mended for general garden treatment
will be found satisfactory for sweet ^
potatoes. Thc roots that are too
small for marketing arc usually used
for seed. For an early crop t?'e roots
should bc bedded in a hotbed five or
six weeks before it will bc SM o to set
thc plants in thc field. As the plants
are easily injured by cold, they should
not bc transplanted until danger of
frost has passed. For thc general
crop in thc lower South, select a pro
tected 'location, preferably on the
south side of a building or fence, and
bed thc roots In the open. A com
mon method is to make an excavation
six inches deep and of sufficient size
to accommodate the roots to be bed
ded. Place in this a layer of sand or
loose soil, on which to bed the uweet
potatoes. Put the roots close togeth
er, but do not allow them to touch,
and cover them with sand or loose
soil one to two inches deep. Soil ou
which sweet potatoes have been
grown should not be used for the seed
ted. Ten bushels of sweet potatoes
will furnish enough Blips to plant an
acre. From these slips, lr set out
early, may be taken enough vine cut-1
tinga tu plant seven or eight acres.
Vine cuttings may be planted as late
as July in the upper South and at late
as August in the lower Scnith. They
will produce as larse crops as slips,
with less danger from diseases which
affect tho roots.
Sweet potatoes should bc dug on a
bright day when the soil is dry. Tho
tlm.> for digging varies in dln'erenl
sections, but the potatoes should bc
dug before there is any danger of hard
frosts. When grown on a small scale,
sweet potatoes may be. dug with a
spading fork. Great care should be
taken not to bruise.cr injure the roots
In handling. After dlgglnc, the roots
should lie exposed for two or - three
hours to dry, after which they should
be placed In a wai-.i, well ventilated
room. The temperature during thc
curing period of about 10. days should
be about 80 degrees to 90 degrees
After the curing period the tempera
ture should be lowered gradually to,
about 55 degrees F. and held at that
point during thc remainder o f thc
storage period. A small crop may bc
cured near the kitchen Stove and af
terwards stored in a dry room where
there ls no danger of their becoming
chilled. Handle sweet potatoes as
little as possible.
Varieties recommended: Pumpkin
Yam, Dooley, Nancy Hall, Triumph,
and Southern Queen. Where a dry
fleshed potato is desired, improved
Jersey, Big Stem Jersey, and Triumph
