Lrardeners Changing Methods ERTAIN garden practices | widely followed a generation ago have now been proved un wise. Gardeners formerly allowed vegetables to grow as large as possible. According to Harold N. I Coulter, vegetable expert of the ; Ferry Seed Breeding Station, this 1 practice gave a higher yield in i pounds, but very often lowered j the quality of the vegetables.

To keep a regular supply of vegetables of proper eating size, gardeners are finding also that it is advisable to plant oftener than once or twice a year. Few gardeners nowadays save "lower seeds.
