use of theso paper pots' which uro

advantages can be secured In growing
such vegetables as poppers, egg plants

ART OF GROWING RADISHES
One of the Earliest Products of the
Home Garden Is One of Easiest
The radish patch usually Is the first
to bo planted by the majority of home
gardeners. The product In most In
stances Is the first to grace tho fam
ily table. - The United States Depart
ment of'AgrlcuIturo tells how:
For the home gnrden, radish seed
should be sown In the'open ground ns
soon ns the soil Is moderately warm.
Plant in drills 12 to IS Inches apart,
and as soon as the plnnts nre up thin
them slightly In order to prevent
crowding. Itadlshes require to bo
grown on a quick, rich soil, and somo
of tho earlier sorts can be matured In
two or three weeks nftor planting. If
the radishes grow slowly they will
have a pungent flavor and will not be
fit for table use. For a constant sup
ply successive plantings should bo
made every two weeks, as the roots
lose their crlspncss and delicate flavor
U allowed to remain long In the open
ground. As a rulo a large percent
age of radish seed will grow, and It Is
often possible by careful sowing to
avoid tho necessity of thinning, tho
first radishes being pulled ns soon as
they nro sufllclent size for tnblo use,
thus making room for those that will
HOW TO GROW PEPPERS
Seeds of peppers should bo
sown In n hotbed or In a box in
the house about 8 weeks beforo
the time for setting the plants In
the garden. The plants are ten
der and should not bo trans,
planted until the ground Is warm
and all danger of frost Is pnst.
Set the plants 15 to 18 inches
apart In rows 2. to 3 feet apart.
The cultivation and treatment of
peppers should he the same as
for tomatoes and eggplants,
There are a large number of
varieties of peppers, Including

IN HOME GARDEN
Trees and Bearing Bushes
Should Be Raised in Addition
to the Vegetables.
GROW CROPS BETWEEN TREES
Strawberries, Raspberries, Blackber.
rles, Gooseberries, Currants and
Others May Occupy Same
Spaco and Do Well.
The more general planting of both
standard and small fruits In addition
to the home vegetable garden would
contribute materially to the health
and pleasure of the average family
and furnish a supply of very desirable
fruit and fruit products at relatively
small cost. In many localities It Is
extremely difficult to secure a contin
uous supply of fruits In pleasing va
riety by purchasing on the market,
and one of tho most Important fea
tures of the plan for the home fruit
plantation Is the selection of kinds
of fruits and varieties of those kinds
which will do well in tho given local
ity and which will serve best the pur
pose for which they are desired.
The home fruit plot will necessarily
be planned from the standpoint of thu
available space, the soil and climatic
limitations, and the needs of the fam
ily throughout the year. In many
cases it may bo feasible to grow all
tho fruit needed, but only that which
can be most readily produced. Among
tho fruits that may be grown through
out the greater part of the country
are apples, pears, peaches, plums,
strawberries, blackberries and dew
berries. Raspberries, currants, cher
ries, quinces, apricots, figs and cltruv
fruits are more or less restricted to
special localities. In colder sections
the winters nro too severe for peaches
and all the fruits requiring a warm
climate, whllo In the wnrmer sections,
apples, currants, gooseberries, rasp
berries and certain varieties of several
of tho other fruits fall because they
cannot withstand the long hot sum
mers and winters.
Tho plan of the home fruit garden,
will, therefore, depend largely upon
the kind of fruits adapted to the lo
cality. On tho whole, however, the
Strawberries, First Fruit of Season.
plantings should be so arranged that
the larger growing trees such as apple,
poach and pear will Interfere the least
with the cultivation .of the sniallei
fruits or tho vegetable garden. In
some of the most successful home
fruit gardens the larger trees arc head
ed rather high, that Is, 5 or 0 feet to
the lower branches, nnd a row of small
fruits, nro grown directly In the row
of fruit trees. Between thu rows of
fruit trees, raspberries, blackberries,
dewberries und strawberries arc plant
ed In rows'whlch nro about 8 or 0 feet
apart. Tho vegetables are then grown
In the spaco between these raws of ber
ries. Peach trees are, as u rule, plant
ed as fillers between apple and pear
trees, Where the area Is extremely
limited the seml-dwnrf varieties of ap
ples are sometimes recommended.
Care should bo taken, however, to
provide plenty of dlstanco between thu
large-growing trees, say '10 to 48 feet
for apples and 20 to 30 foot for peach
es, pears and cherries.
Apples, pears, cherries and plums
may bo plunted as combination fruit
nnd shado trees, and by heading them
5 to 7 foot abovo the ground, n lawn
may bo maintained underneath them.
Plum trees nro particularly adapted
to planting In a poultry yard, but must
be headed reasonably high and tho
trunks protected by wire netting until
the trees are four or five years old.
