Tho Plant ls Steamed und the Leave*

(Detroit News) ,
The tea plant belongs to the same
family of evergreens as the camelia,
and has small whlto flowers, slightly
fragrant. As a rulo tho seeds are
planted oft terrace on gent?o hill
slopes, but level ground may also ho
used provided lt is kept drained. The
shrub is not allowed to attain a
height of moro than throe or four
lt is ready for picking In its third
year, but it is at its best from the
fifth to the tenth year. Tho first pick
ing takos place at the ond of April
and lasts three or four weeks. There
is a second picking in Juno or .inly.
This work ls generally done by girls.
As soon as possible after being
picked the loaves are placod on a
round tray with a brass wire bottom,
ovor boiling water. This process of
steaming, which is completed in half
a minute, brings tho natural oil to ;
the surface. The next and principal
operation ts thc firing, which is done
(?n a wooden frame, with thick Jap
anese paper stretched across it. char
coal well covered with ashes being
thu fuel employed.
This til'St firing is done at a tem
perature of about 120 degrees Fah
renheit. Meanwhile the leaf is ma
nipulated for hours hy men who roll
it into balls with the palms of their
hands. The dual result is obtained
when each leaf becomes sopera I ely
twisted and changes its color lo a
dark (dive green. Two more tirings
al a lower temperature follow, after
which tho leaf is allowed to dry until
it becomes tillite brittle. Winn ibis
process is complete the tea is kept
strictly dry, as moisture destroys its
aroma. Tea so made is the genuine
Japan tea, or what is commonly
known in America .is "groen tea."

Garden Plot Should Be Kept Busy
by Successive Planting? of ?
Different Vegetables.
Maximum Production Can Only Bo
Obtained by Careful Study and
Striot Attention to Various
Little Details.
(Prepared by the United State? Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Southern gardens begin to look
seedy about June IO, gardens lu the
Middle states section are in the height
of their glory, and the New longland
gardens are just getting well Blurted.
It seems to be a foregone conclusion
on the purt of most persons through
out thc Southern states that southern
gardens eau be grown only In the
spring and In the fall, with a few
chance hardy crops during the winter.
The farmer of the middle section
plants his spring garden, then gets
busy with fa nu crops, and very little
further attention is given the gardon,
unless thc work ls done by the wom
en. In the New longland states and purls
of the Northwest where the grow
ing season ls quite short only one crop
of nuts! vegetables can be grown. In
the middle section, however, two
crops can often be grown on ibo same
land, and, more important still, a con
tinuous supply of lieus, beans, sweet
corn, and a number ol' oilier vegeta
bles can bc had by making successive
Grow One Crop After Another.
The garden ls generally the richest
spot of ground on the farm, and for
that reason should he expected tn ;?ro
Comps. non Cropping Peas and Pota,
toes In the Home Carden
duce more than any other similar area.
To get maximum production, however,
lt ls necessary to keep the land busy
all the time. This can be done two
ways ; first by companion cropping,
and, second, by following one crop
with another or successive planting.
There are a number of crops that
lend themselves to companion crop
ping. For example, where onion sets
are planted In rows, say 18 Inches be
tween the rows, a row of radishes,
spinach, or lettuce can be drilled be
tween the rows of onions and he off
the ground before the onions need the
space. Spinach, radishes, early beets,
or turnips can be planted between car
rot?, parsnips, and salsify. A crop of
I snap beans can frequently be grown
between the rows of tomatoes. Radish
seeds may often be planted alongside
a row of peas, the radishes being
pulled and out of the way bofore the
j pens begin to climb the trellis or
brush provided for their support or
j to spread over the ground. A little
I later In the season sweet corn or late
cabboge can be planted between the
i rows of early Irish potatoes and ranko
! considerable of a start before the
Irish potatoes are dug.
i , In the middle section, early peas
! may be followed by lote cabbage, late
1 potatoes, late snap beans, beets, or
I turnips. Karly Irish potatoes may be
! followed by turnips, late snap beans,
: or by late sweet corn.
Plan Fall Gardens.
! Fall gardens should In no case be
? overlooked, espeelnlly from the Middle
; states southward. Plantings of prac?
. tica I ly all the early spring vegetables
may be made from July to September,
j according to locality, and be brought
I to maturity before early autumn
frosts. By proper attention to the gar
j den, fresh vegetables may be had
through a porlod of about 10 months
of the year in the extreme south and
for about 7 months In the middle sec
tion. The season for the New lang
land and northwestern sections la
necessarily much more limited, bul
even here the clHoloney of a garden
j eau be greatly increased by a careful
I study and attention to the limiter ol
' companion cropping and successive
plantings of certain vegetables.
