A CHAT WITH THE PUBLISHER

I AM sure that the finest thing about the articles which we are printing in each issue of Fruit, Garden and Home is that they suggest something we can do in our own gardens both interesting and worthwhile. For instance, Mr. Cooper's article on peony culture in the September issue proved so interesting and compelling when I read it that I determined to have even more peonies in my gardens at Meredith Farm.

Van Fleet Roses for America

SOME great men are kept in memory thru their great deeds. Others shine to posterity in their works of art. either of painting, sculpture or building. Great engineers leave us bridges, canals, or the like, as memorials of their skill, ability and energy. One man I know who deserves but has never been accorded fame at least equal to that accorded to Luther Burbank, is worthy of that fame because he took the strings out of string-beans, making a good vegetable easier and better to use by reason of his patient genius-- and like most true geniuses, this man Keeney's success came only thru his persistent and unremitting application and care.

Homes of Famous Americans

AT Nashville, I was amazed to discover that the only way one can reachThe Hermitage, the home of Andrew Jackson, is by taxi. There is no trolley service, no trains. You are simply at the mercy of the taxi barons and you pay their price, or else you don't go. The Hermitage is some fourteen miles out into the country.

Fences For Privacy

THE use of picket, paling and lattice fences within the past few years as screens or enclosures on small places has increased to such an extent as to be a positive mania. "Latticitis" we might very aptly term this popular craze for the construction of all manner of wooden structures on boundary lines; around laundry yards and numerous other objects on private places to shut out ugly views, enclose a garden or keep the delivery boy from crossing the lawn.

Grandmother's Favorites

The memories of sitting on grandmother's front steps of late summer afternoons, looking down the walks lined with these "pinks" growing right up to the foot of an old gnarled pear tree from whose green retreats, every now and then, great luscious pears fell with a soft thud and on across the road thru the old palings their bright faces peeped up outlining the strawberry beds in the vegetable garden.

LAWNS, TREES AND SHRUBS

How about the mulch on your tulip beds, the perennials and the shrubs? These days of early thaws may play havoc with them. The idea is to mulch to prevent thawing, to keep the ground around the roots frozen. It isn't the freezing that does the damage; it's the alternate freezing and thawing. If your mulch is too thin, or has blown away, replace it before a thaw comes along.

Our Friend the Toad

The toad is inoffensive and of great service to man in destroying troublesome insects and their larvae. Toads usually lie hidden during the day but come forth at dusk in gardens, fields and woods in search of food. They also like to reside in damp places and the one seated on the toad stool was found in my neighbor's cellar calmly sitting in the water-meter pit.

Small Fruits You Should Have

HALF of his taxes are paid by a neighbor of mine from the fruit which grows in his back yard. And it is safe to say that he has plenty of fruit left for his own use. This is not an argument for growing to sell, however; it simply illustrates the possibilities of a back yard in the way of fruit production and confirms my personal experience that the average family can raise all the small fruit it requires in the average-sized back yard of the average city or town.

Along the Garden Path

MY goodness, how interested all you folks were in defending your favorite flowers! We never dreamed when we put that little contest announcement in the December issue that so many letters would come into the office. When the first letters came, we put them in a tiny compartment of a large desk drawer; the next day they had outgrown it and were sweeping over the whole drawer.
