Tomate, Fr. Tomate, Sp. Liebesapfel, Ger. CULTURE.—For first early Tomatoes select varieties of the earliest type, and start plants under glass during February. When 2 inches high, transplant into flats, thumb pots or plant boxes, and later on transplant again, giving more room. Never crowd the plants, but keep them short and stocky. Plants already in bloom or with fruit set, if in wooden plant boxes or in pots, may be transplanted to open ground without disturbing their roots, and will continue to bloom and fruit without check. Set these sorts 4 feet apart each way in warm, mellow soil of fair fertility as soon as danger from belated frost is past. For main crop, the plants can be started somewhat later, in hotbed or cold frame, once transplanted to keep them stocky, and then set in open ground in fairly warm soil, 5 feet apart each way. Applications of superphosphate, or of some good complete (vegetable) fer- tilizer will hasten maturity and increase yield. One ounce of Seed will produce from 3,000 to 4,000 plants. Bonny Best.
