ER GLASS The best varieties of tomatoes for forcing areLorillard, Stirling Castle and Comet; of the cucum-bers, Arlington White Spine, Davis Perfected andthe English forcing varieties. If you do not like to stop having lettuce in timeto give up space to cucumbers or tomatoes, startsome plants about January first, and have a hotbedready to receive them from the flats before Marchfirst. With a little care as to ventilation and water-ing, they will come along just after the last of thegreenhouse crops. A point not to be overlooked in connection withall the above suggestions is that any surplus of thesefresh out-of-season things may be disposed ofamong your vegetable-hungry friends at the samestep-ladder prices they are paying the butcher orgreen-grocer for wilted, shipped-about products. And dont get discouraged if some of your experi-ments do not succeed the first time. Keep on plan-ning, studying and practicing until you are gettingthe maximum returns and pleasure from your glasshouse.
