Ready To Fight The Frost. With frosts threatening, Marlborough orchardists are alert every night to the alarm which will call them out to light fire-pots at the foot of their trees. Neat rows of pots have been checked and are ready to be lit at a moment's notice. Here Mr. Bruce McCallum, of Blenheim, checks one of the fire-pots at his Omaka orchard.
