Need Only Simple
Tools for Garden
Spade, Rake and Hoe Will
Be Sufficient for Your
Nearly every hardware store and
practically all of tf seed houses keep
a supply of garden tools for sale. The
amateur gardener is often tempted to
purchase a larger number of tools than
is justif!ed by the results obtained in
a sxull garden. The three most es-
sential tools recommended by the
United States Department of Agricul-
ture are a spade or spading fork, a
hoe, and a rake. The question as to
whether a spade or spading fork
should be purchased will depend upon
the character of the soil. If the soil
is heavy and of a clay nature a spade
will be best for turning it up, but if
it is gravelly, sandy or loamy, the spad-
ing fork will put it in better condi-
tion than will the spade. When it
comes to the selection of a hoe, just
a plain, thin-bladed hoe about 6 or 7
inches in width is best. A pointed or
marking hoe may be rather desirable,
but the marks in which to plant seeds
can practically all be made with the
corner of the regular hoe. A rake is
needed for pulverizing the soil, and
here again the plainest and simplest
type of steel rake is best.
In selecting any of these tools the
quality of the material in the blade or
metal part and a good, straight-
grained, smooth handle are the es-
sentials. To these tools the gardener
can easily add a few simple implements
of his own manufacture. These may
consist of a couple of wooden stakes
and a line of any strong cord, a paddle
made from a shingle or thin piece of
board and a little scratcher made by
driving three wire brads through the
end of a piece of lath. The line
should be used for all planting in or-
der to have the rows straight, the pad-
dle is suitable for setting the plants,
and the scratcher is useful for work-
ing between small plants.
When the tools such as spade or
spading fork, hoe and rake are pur-
chased from the store, the metal parts
will be bright and new, and, as a rule,
the handles have no paint or other
dressing upon them. It.is a good plan
to give the handles a thorough coating
with sheilac, as this will help keep the
moisture from penetrating them. The
blades should be kept bright aud clean

and oiled with any good grease, to
which is added about one part lime
to three parts oil in order to counter-
act any free acids that may be pres:
ent in the oil. Just oil alone does not
make a good coating for bright sur-
faces, as the free acid contained in the
oil may cause the implements to rust
even while thoroughly coated with the
grease and lime will correct this acid
condition of the oil. Keeping the tools
housed in a dry place is most impor-
tant in connection with their preserva-
tion. Never, under any circumstances,
should a spade or spading fork be left
standing in the soil, as the chemical
elements of the soil will immediately
attack the steel and a good spade may
be completely ruined by standing in
the soil overnight.
In planting hardy perennials on the
aome grounds they should be planted
in irregular clumps at appropriate
openings in the shrubbery groups but
not in bands or ribbons either along
the shrubbery, the foundation of the
house, or the borders of the lawn.

and beargrass, are excellent evergreen

Plant Foods Must
Be Kept on Hand
Fertilizers Are Just as Es-
sential in Small Home
Garden as Seeds.
Plant foods, or the elements that make
plants grow, are just as essential in
the home garden as seeds. Nature has
been very kind in that she has sup-
plied the most of these elements in
abundance in our soils, but there are
a few of them which have not been
supplied in sufficient quantities to pro-
duce good crops. These are mainly
nitrogen, phosphoric acid, potash and
lime. It is nitrogen that gives the
plants their vigorous growth and
healthy green color. Phosphorus aids
the growth and especially helps in the
formation of the seeds. Without pot-
ash all garden crops would be a fail-
ure, but some crops, such as potatoes,
beets, carrots, radishes, etc. requir
more potash than others. :
Garden soils may be acid or alkaline,
that is, they may be sour or they may
ve sweet, the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture explains. A few
of our garden crops may be grown on
a sour soil, but these are very few in-
on a sweet alkaline soil. Lime will
sweeten an acid or sour soil, the
amount of lime required depending
upon the sourness or acidity of the

DIAGRAM OF BARREL FOR
LIQUID FERTILIZER .
Liquid manure is the finest stimulant
your flowers can have. It is also fine
to make the head lettuces hurry up
their heads. This illustration shows a
practical way for providing a supply
readily accessible. Either sheep
manure, poultry manure, or commer-
cial fertilizer may be used in the bag
which is suspended in the water. The
device does away with odor. If the
barrel can be hidden in the shrubs,
near the flower border, the task of sup-
plying stimulant when needed will be
simplified.—National Garden Bureau.
soil. For example, it is found that re-
cently drained swamp soils sometimes
| need 20 or 25 tons of lime to the acre
to sweeten them. This, of course,
| would be impracticable and an easier
and cheaper method must be followed.
The most practical method is to first
thoroughly drain the sour soil, then
turn it up to the air and allow it to
sweeten through natural processes.
Even then it will usually be necessary
to add some lime or other material
containing lime, such as wood ashes, to
help along with the natural process.
Most of our garden lands need nitro-
gen, phosphoric acid or potash. These
can be supplied in the form of a mixed
fertilizer containing about 4 or 5 per
cent nitrogen, 8 or 10 per cent phos-
phoric acid and 4 to 8 per cent potash.
Truck gardeners usually figure on
about one ton of this fertilizer to the
acre each year. This would mean
about 200 pounds on a tenth-acre plot
of ground or 100 pounds on the average
backyard garden which is, as a rule,
about 30 to 40 feet wide and 60 or 70
feet in length. The fertilizer is best
applied just after the ground has been
spaded and well raked or forked into
the top four inches of soil. If lime is
used it should be put on either several
days after the fertilizer or a week
or so before the fertilizer is applied
and never at the same time as the
fortilizer. Weeds chopped fine, strawy
manure, or, in fact, any manure that
does not contain oil from the streets,
will help enrich the garden and give
the soil new life, but with the present
scarcity of manure, home gardeners are
practically compelled to depend upon
commercial fertilizers for adding plant
food to their garden soils. A good
plan is for several gardeners in a
neighborhood to pool their order for
fertilizer, buy it in considerable quan-
tities, and then divide according to the
needs of each.
Many gardeners prefer to broadcast
about one-half of the fertilizer before
planting the crops, then use the re-
mainder for scattering along the rows
during the growing period of the crops.
This means a little more work but
gives the best results. Crops must be
fed just the same as animals.
