TO STORE VEGETABLES. ( The question of stoiing wgeiabJr crops for winter use is one that is often difficult for the inexperienced amateur to solve. Take such valuable veg»- | tables asYorrots, beetroot, and parsnips. ' An admirable method is that of building up a cone-shaped mound of earth and placing the roots horizontally between the layers of lino soil or sand. The top growth will, of course, have beeu re moved ready for burning before tin roots are stored. Onious are best stored on shelves in a frost-proof shed to which air can be freely /admitted when the weather is favourable. They should be spread out thiuly and not in heaps, since it is necessary that there should be a . constant circulation. of air between the bulbs. Failing this method of storing, , the best alternative is to tie the bulbs | in ropen, aud hangithcm against a dry i wall indoors, or, better still, from a ' ! hook /i.ved iu the ceiling. Savoys and I cabbages will stand a good deal of frost. I but this is uot ...
