Lettuce will not grow if the ground is very dry, so that the hoe should ! be introduced to it very early and made ' its constant companion. hen then, it may be necessary to apply water in gen erous quantities, digging a little trench so that it will not be wasted, especially if it must be carried by the pailful. A teaspoonful of nitrate of soda dug around the plants which aro slow to mature will speed them up, and regular applications of manure water are a help. Lettuce must be grown fast to be really satisfactory. PELERY IN THE HOME GAR- DEN: For an early crop, to be ready m August, grow Paris Uolden Self lilauching. You may buy started plants or raise your own in a cold frame, sowing the seeds broadcast about the middle of March. Boston Market is the best winter celery for the home garden, although Giant Pascal is a popular and splendid variety. Sow the seed in the open ground in April. When tho plants are large enough, you may set them where they are to mature, if you want to save labor, but two fransplantings are de sirable, becauso the formation of long tap roots is prevented ami better plants insured. To grow celery conventionally, dig a trench fifteen inches wide and six inches deep. Throw in plenty of well-rotted manure or pulverized sheep manure, or, failing either, a high-grade commercial fertilizer, and work in thor oughly into the soil. Set the plants in alternate double rows six inches apart, and only partinlly fill tho trench, so that a hose may be used to run water into it. Keep down the weeds and if neces sary shade the plants with boards or muslin or paper. Here is a simpler though newer plan. Do not dig a trench, but make the soil as fine as the mills of the Gods are sup posed to grind, and work fertilizer into it deeply. Then, set tho plants in a single row eight inches apart and cover the ground (hero is tho point) with two inches of fresh horse manure (fresh, mind you), taking care that it does not touch tho plants. Absolutely no further work will be required until time to blanch the celery. What could be easier? Paris Golden is easily blanched by banking earth about it or using boards. A simple plan is to tako a dozen stalks into the cellar from time to time and plaeo them in a crock with the roots only covered with water. The stalks will blanch quickly and beautifully. Paper strips aro now being used in the garden for blanching celery and is much handier than boards. Winter celery may bo removed to the cellar in Novem ber and banked up in sand. There really is no trick about growing celery. Try it, even though you grow only Paris Golden and buy your plants. You will have celery up to Christmas, THE SWEETEST SWEET CORN: City people who buy their sweet corn at tho stores really don't know what quality corn is like. A few hours mnko n vast difference in sweetness, for corn loses its sugar rapidly. Make your corn season a long one by planting an additional row every two weeks. It is useless to hurry tho outdoor season, however, for tho seed will only rot in wet ground. But if you aro willing to tako a little extra pains, you can bo eat ing corn before your neighbor's stnlks have tasseled. Late in April, uso sheep manuro or other fertilizer to mako a plot of rich ground richer still, and then fill a few paper pots or dirt bands. Plant half a dozen kernels in each pot and keep tho latter in a box in a sunny win dow, or set them in a cold frame. Set out of doors or give abundant ventila tion on bright days when tho plants appear. Early in May, set the plants in tho garden and watch them grow. Golden Bantam or Peep O'Day, being early, aro tho varieties to use. Corn likes to have plenty of nourish (Contlnued on Page IS ) "String beans growing between rows of young Crane Fruit Trees on land of Mr. A. A. Price, near Wauchula, Practical Combination Soil.
