At this season when trimming trees, remember that peas and tomatoes will thank you to remember them. Twice the crop can be obtained from peas on stakes than from peas which trail on the ground, or from peas which are said to need no stakes; and tomatoes grown on stakes are vastly superior in edible qualities to those raised any other way. Pea sticks must be twiggy or the small tendrils cannot take hold. Tomato stakes may be stout to bear the great weight, and stubby to help sustain the branches.
