J. M. Stephens, Asst. Veg. Crops Specialist
,tave you decided on a- /7. Yes, Mr. Brown. I want
i4-H project for this / to grow another garden
,year, Bobby? a and try out some of the
r o ------y things I learned last /
-, year.

--^ --Last year some of my"'-
(-. e- vegetables grew poorly )<
* I ,-' What kind of toads did \
\-< i you say were the -
trouble?_ N

/Oh, yes, I remember,
Ted's demonstrations
He showed us how tod
kill them.
.'N . .. .- .4

Nematodes, Bobby! \
They are not toads,
but are tiny eel-
worms living in,/
the soi l. ---

That's right!-
-... Say, how about us getting
together and I'll show you,
how it is done. O.k. ?,,

Sure, Mr. Brown. ,
T morrow after school.'
will be fine.

\ ". .. First, we open a furrow about 6
Inches deep down the row where you will
,i- ~

This old mayonnaise
jar and lid are
just what we need .
to put the d
D-D In the -
furrow. /:,. -

' . Put a small hole In the
edge of the lid. This will let
a tiny trickle come out when the
jar Is turned upside down, We
want to put pint of D-D every
100 feet. So, we.must 'calibrate'
our jar."

STo /o calibrate, put 2 pint of water \
*/ .-- in the jar. Then trickle the water
down the furrow. Find out how fast
/ you must walk to empty the jar in
J00 feet.

Now, put in the real thing.\
Try to keep the D-D off
your hands while pouring.

I always use rubber
gloves when mixing
all my garden chemicals.

By walking at the same
speed as I did with the)
water, I know I am
putting out the right

We must cover the fumigant>
right away, Bobby, to keep
it from escaping.

This part I think I
can do, Mr. Brown./

Well, Bobby, that's
Show it's done. Think
vou can do it now?

No, Bobby! You must
e ,. wait about two weeks
to let the soil air out.

Sure seems easy enough,

supposed to catch today!
