Late sowing for fall maturing crops are of vital importance in this year’s victory gardens, in order to obtain maximum food production necessary for wartime needs. In hot weather, either dry or hot, seeds may have a difficult time. Dur ing hot weather the top soil dries out quickly, even after it has been thoroughly soaked, unless shaded from the sun. When rains come they beat down the soil and the sun then bakes it, forming a crust diffi cult for seedlings to penetrate. How’ever, there are two ways of insuring good germination. Either start seeds in flats in a shaded lo cation and transplant good-sized seedlings to the garden or sow in the open garden and shade the rows until the seedlings have a good start. The first method can be used only for crops which will stand trans planting, including lettuce, cauli flower, endive, cabbage, collards, kale, broccoli, brussels sprouts, etc. Let tuce is particularly hard to germin ate in hot weather except in a shaded spot. Beets, carrots, rutabaga, turnips and beans cannot be transplanted so they must be sown in the open gard en. best insure their success. Now Is The Time To Sow Fall Maturing Victory Garden Crops have One mid fail- In the past too few gardens been kept busy all season, reason has been the fact that summer sowings often result in ure unless special care is taken to protect crops in the seedling stage. Some method of shading will In planning for shading of seed lings, make drills for summer seed ing deeper than usual, in order to bring seeds closer to Soil moisture. Pour enough water into the drill to soak the soil thoroughly, then sow the seeds. If there is enough clay in your garden to pack the soil, cover the seeds with sand or fine dry soil. Never compact wet soil above your seeds in the summer. Next place a plank, six inches wide, over the rows, raised an inch or so on weed blocks so that air and moisture can pass beneath it. As soon as the seedlings break through the ground, remove the plank so that they may have sun light. But until they ar§ well estab lished it will be best to sprinkle them sufficiently to keep the topsoil from drying out. When seeds are sown in an outdoor Terms—Cash Seth Basinger, Auct.

Hog's Time May Have High Value In Market Total grain required to produce 100 pounds of gain on a pig can be reduced about 17 per cent by raising the pigs on good pasture, but How ard Davison, animal husbandry spe cialist, Ohio State University, says the saving in grain is made at the expense of approximately 55 days of time in getting the pigs ready for market. Mr. Davison quotes the feeding trials made by W. L. Robison, Ohio Experiment Station, in proof that 100 pounds of pork can be made with 333 pounds of grain and con centrates with pigs on pasture but the feeding time was 162 days. The other lot of pigs on full grain feed gained 10O pounds in 105 days but consumed 366 pounds of grains and concentrates. The animal husbandry specialist declares the grain saved in this pr ticular feeding trial was more than counterbalanced by the decline in market prices for pork in the period between the dates the two lots of pigs were sold. In normal times, this seasonal price drop is likely to occur, but 1944 is not a marketing year. PETER BIXEL Husky Chicks— There’s a big difference in chick feeds and it pays to insist on starter mash of known quality.

INC. normal limited on new The pigs in this trial on grain made their best gains corn after September 15. That might be an important factor to a lot of Ohio farmers who now have little or no old corn. Mr. Davison suggests that by putting pigs on pasture and limiting their grain it would be pos sible to use 1944 com to make 55 per cent of the gain required to bring the pigs to desirable market weights. All livestockmen nowdays watch government regulations on livestock marketing. The announced drop in the support prices on hogs to be made this fall must be considered in any feeding plan, and most farmers will send as many spring pigs as possible to market before the sup port price is lowered.
