J. H. Boyd, specialist in vegetable gardening, Ohio State University, says drainage and protection against freezing are the important factors in this storage method. Pits should be six to eight inches deep in soil that is sandy enough to drain naturally or that has adequate drainage provided. The pit is filled with straw, hay, or dried leaves and the vegetables are placed on this material. The pile of vegetables should not be more than four feet deep, and varieties which must be kept clean can be covered with burlap, carpeting, or heavy paper. Six or eight inches of the same ma terial used to line the pit should be placed over the vegetables. A layer of soil thick enough to shed water then should be added. Ventilation can be provided by placing a perforated wooden flue in the pit and extending through the covering of soil. When the temperature of the vegetables in the pit drops to around 35 degrees, more soil should be used to make the cover one foot thick. Another layer of straw and more soil are placed on the pit after the first soil layer has frozen. Vegetables can be placed in boxes in the pit so that a supply can be removed when needed with out disturbing the rest of the pit. Apples keep well in pits but should not be stored with vege tables because apples readily absorb odors. Rats Cost Farmers Money And Trouble Rats are real racketeers on farms, in the opinion of T. H. Parks, extension specialist, Ohio State University, who says these rodents cost the aver age farmer $40 annually in damage done besides being a carrier of diseases. It is almost impossible for farmers to use the best method of ridding premises of rats which is to prevent the rats from gaining access to food. Since this is impractical on most farms, some way of killing the rats must be used to keep their numbers within bounds. Poison baits are the most practical method of wholesale destruction. Red squill which kills rats but does not affect other animals is difficult to ob tain now. Arsenic and phosphorus are deadly to rats but they are just as deadly to any other ani mals which eat these baits containing the poisons. Traps can be used to catch the few rats that escape a poison bait campaign if the farmer re members the rat’s habits. The rodents seldom travel in the open if this can be avoided so traps should be set near walls, preferably in a runway between some object and a wall. Several traps should be used and their location shifted fre quently. Cyanide gas or the exhaust from an automobile will kill rats in burrows under concrete floors or in other locations where the gases can be confined to the holes. Both these gases are poisonous and should not be used where they will escape into places occupied by domestic animals or human beings. Community campaigns to rid premises of rats are most effective because the rodents travel from farm to farm. Poison baits can be prepared cheap er per unit in large quantities than in smaller amounts. County agricultural agents will give directions on mixing and use of several types of poison baits.
