TOPICS Of INTEREST TO THE PLANTEh
Tn Grow Early Cabba-re.
If you hav..e it select a piece of me-;-p
diumly low. v:ell drainct land. Do no I
put on any fe :tilizer in the fall or eariy i
winter. Plow this land as thoroughly n
and as deep as you can. so long as you
do not turn up the sub-soil. I usully
plow eight to ten inches deep. puliver- I
ize thoroughl:- with good clod brea
or harrow. I- sure that all lumps 3re
broken and the soil is fine and soft.
Lay off your rows, cast and west. If
you cau. thir ty inches apart. using a I
bull-tongue plow for the purpose. Just v
befOre you orler your plants make up
your beds by throwing two furrows to
gerher wi single horse turn plow.
Then firm the beds by rolling the n
with a light roller. sneh as you would
use in rolling hay land. "In small gar
dens use a plank for firming them." I
Remember that no fertilizer is 1W io
applied until after the plauts are sot.
When your pitInts arrive take the Nis
kets to the field. and as you take the
plants from the basket dip the roots in
water to moisten them. Then set your
plants on the south side of the bed far
enough down the side so tait the t<p of
the bed is above the top of the plant.
This is done to keep the cold north and
northwest winds from twisting and
breaking the plants while small. Your
plants should be ISet :wenty inehes
apart in the row. vid the entire sten
of the plant up to the first leav.es
should be in !h, soil. Pack the Slil v
good and tighL about the roots. T.eI:
soil should be so firm that the leaf of
the plant would pull otf before th2
plant would pul! out. In a climate i
where the thermmeter does not go be- n
low eighteen or twenty you can get t!
best results by setting. your plants in .
Decembe: and January. Where ihe I
thermometer -4)es below eighteen it is b
best to set theni in February and
Mareb. The object of setting in coi M
weather is this: the top of the plant is i
dormant and wil! stand severe cold
without injury. The roots are in land
whe rthere. is n:) fertilizer. and they
continue to grov: anid sp-ead all winter.
About two weeks before your regular .
spring veather opens ip take a turn
pl- of haIf shovel and thrmw a fur- IT
row away from the p:ants in eac-h al-u
ternate row. Run the furrow as vlos4e
to the plants as you can. Then put in
this furrow fttilizer analyzing ih
por cuent. amnicaiia. s'ven per* cent.
phsphorie :clid. five per cent. pth
at the rate of 14) pniids to the :in
and th-el throw Ite furrow back. work
in., dirt weil up round tle plants.
This worlln: vill have worked nd
fertilized one side of eaceh row. Abou
tn days after tIhe first working work
and feriilize the other alley in exactl
tie same way. You will then have
rorked bothi alli:-ys and have put on,
200 potunds of. fertilizer to the ae.
From this time on keep both :lliers
well cultjiva ted anad the soil as op:1 a
ossible. using a lUamond tooth barrow.
and cultivator. The roots that have
been growing all winter will now'take
p the fertilizer sery rapidly and mak.
ou a crop of caboage two or thre
eeks earlier than you can make thetm
y growing your own plants.
In purchasing your plants he sure
hat you get your plants from a reli
ble grower, who uxses nothing but i;ih rt
rade seed. as the success or fatilure o
our crop) will depe'nd upion t he seed
rom which the plants were grown. i
Reliable seed growers select thoir seed I
rom only the perfect henCs of ea
>age, cutting out all imperfect hxe:ils e
efore th'ey seed. Some se.aso'ns they h:
have to cut out over one-half of thieir I
med crop. Other growers allow Ih":
ntire crop to make seed. seed s1Q
d by the first-clatss grower will COst
ou three times rs much as the seen a
rown by tihe secon~d class. The 'ost e.
f seed is about two-thirds the cost of:
growing plants. ar d for thait reason hiit
plant grower who uses the bet~ter aae h:
seed cannot sell you plants at the same y
price as the growe' who uses the hieap-j
er grade seeds. t use only the higth yv
grade seds in n~y business. and do s
not attemp~t to meet tile prices onoted i
by some of~ the plant growers. *Mmi. C.
