Here is a garden pea that breaks all the rules in the books and bears a. heavy crop of tender peas during hot weaHier. Wando is a heat-resistant pea you can plant as late as the 1st of July and get a good crop of high qual- ity peas, even in hot summer wea- - ther. With, ordinary garden peas you have to get them in the ground in April since they are normally a cool weather -vegetable, but Wando can be planted late and still give you excellent crop in August or September* Wando bears well, freezes well, maturing in 68 days. Make successive sowings of peas until the first of July. Make a trench 2 inches deep and scatter the peas so they're close together about an inch apart. Rows can be 2% ft, apart and it takes about a pound to sow 100 fit. of row. PRUNE EVERGREENS. Right HOW'S a good time to nip your ever i greens so they'll stay compact and bushy.
