"Be" Kinard, Coun- ty Extension Chairman Here's a trick or two that will help you win your battle with weeds. CONTROLLING NUTGRASS- Plant tall growing crops that produce a heavy shade in gar- den areas infested with nut- grass. Planting early will help the crop get the jump on nut- grass and the shade will us- ually hold the pest down until the vegetables mature. Using this system of planting can help deal with light infesta- tions of nutgrass. After the crop matures, remove allcrop stubble residue and disk, plow or stir the area frequentlydur- ing the hot dry time of year to destroy the nutgrass tubers and prevent them reinfesting the area before frost. OTHER WEEDS - One of the easiest ways to control other weeds in the garden is by keep- ing them from making seed. Plow up any. rows where the crop has already matured and plant it to another crop. It is just as easy to grow veget- ables in these areas as it is to try to keep it from growing up in weeds. Successful gar- deners keep their whole garden area in production at all times -- this makes weed con- trol an easy chore• Using a heavy mulch of pine straw, hay or similar material will help keep weeds under con- trol in long season crops like tomatoes• The mulch will also cut down on the need for irri- gation and help keep the fruit off the ground. TOMATOES - Here are some tips for getting big, red, de- licious tomatoes. Make a light application of nitrogen on toma- toes after the first fruit is about an inch and one-half in diameter to keep the plants green and growing and to in- crease the tomato production. Tomatoes make fruit on the new growth and side-dressing is im- portant for plants to produce best yields• "The trouble with being pleasant is people think you're a hypocrite."
