FROM BLOOM TO THE BOX, the Association can finance your production. Tn setting
up your budget for 1943-44 there are many items which have to be taken into
consideration. There are expenses that you can figure for each month in the
year; there are the months when you buy fertilizer; nearly every month you need
o l production labor; in some instances there are caretaker's salaries that come at
7.j regular intervals; there are insecticides to buy in the spring, summer and fall;
and the maximum discount on your taxes can be taken by paying them in November.
S Tractor work must be done to keep up your cultivation; gae, oil, tires and tubes
S F- must be purchased for your spray rigs, tractors, trucks and etc.; the equipment
must be kept in repair by constant care and proper over-hauls; the buildings may
S** need maintenance; feed must be bought for your livestock; seed must be had for
cover crops; fire insurance has to be kept up every year; the groves need irri-
gation in dry times; good years and bad, there is pruning to be done; and you
have to meet income taxes, land payments, and interest on long-term capital
Nearly every year you have to buy a new piece of equipment. The Association
can finance tractors, harrows, trucks, spray machines, irrigation equipment,
or any essential machinery, so that you can pay for them out of the returns of
one or two seasons.
All these expenses were in your last year's production costs; they are legiti-
mate expenses in your budget.
Cost of most materials can be reduced by taking the discounts offered or by buy-
ing ahead, and expensive repairs can be lessened if you have made arrange-
ments to meet your production needs for the year.
1. Have you paid your taxes?
2. Have you made your Land Bank payments?
3. Have you taken the discounts on your fertilizer bills?
4. How much cash will it take you to run for twelve months, less the
cash you have on hand?
5. Or, ao you want to put the cash you have on hand into War Bonds
and save that as a reserve against another ayt
Take a few minutes and fill out the budget below; let us know when you are il
ready, and we will go over the program with you. This is a good opportunity
to get the money you need at minimum cost, as the Association charges in- I i
torest at only 4j% per annum for the number of days you have the money.

Fig. 1.-The time has come to understand more fully the value of garden pro-
ducts, fresh or canned, to the health of farm people. Vegetables, fruit, milk and eggs
are grouped as protective foods. A well planned garden and a well canned pantry
should provide a generous year-round variety of these protective foods.

Under certain conditions, the War
Boards can assist you to obtain
certificates with whichyou can
purchase tractor tires.
Condition 1, If the tractors or
implements, regardless of date of
manufacture, are to be moved over
the roads between farms where these
roads will not permit the use of
steel wheels, and where no other
route over non-surfaced highways is
Condition 2. Where soil types or
topography on which the tractor or
implement is to be used is such
that any tractor on steel wheels,
purchased after May 1, 1942 and
before July 1, 1943 and not in use
in that farm period from May 1, 1942
is seriously handicapped by not be-
ing on rubber tires.
We suggest that you determine the
facts and conditions governing this
procedure from your County Farm
Transportation Committee, because
they already have established re-
lationship with the Ration Board ir
Tour replacements and machinery
needs can be financed through the
Association, along with your pro-
