The Boil that is to be used for vege
tables should be thoroughly prepared
before planting. A deep seed bed is
desirable, and when an area that has
never been plowed more thsn 4 inches
deep must be used it should be deep
ened by gradually increasing the
depth of plowing for a period of three
or four years until the desired depth
Clay soil should be plowed- in thc
fall if there ls no danger of wash- ,
lng. sn as to get it in a good mechan
ical condition before planting time.
In the cooler regions of the South
freeling will pulverise Ute soil, which ?
in regions where freezes do not occur (
the pulverizing must.be done by har- i
rowing and cultivation. Sandy loams ;
or soils that contain a large amount ?
of humus should be plowed far |
enough in advance to allow the soil.,

Thorough preparation by plowing, ?
harrowing, rolling, or dragging will j]
lessen the work of cultivation. It Is
not sufficient to smooth and level the
surface; the pulverising should ex
tend down several Inches.
Manares add FeraUsers. 1
The soil for vegetable growing
should be rich and well supplied with
humus. Barnyard or atable manure
ls tho best fertilizer, because it fur
nishes both plant food and humus.
An application ot 20 to SO tons of
manure to tho acre Is very 'satisfac
tory, and on some soils this applica
tion will need but . little reinforcing
with commercial fertilizers. The ma-j
nure should be applied far enough'
In advance of planting time to allow j
it to decay. Where coarse manure is
used, it should be applied in the fall
and turned under, but well-rotted ma
ure should be applied after plowing
and should be well mixed with the
poll .by harrowing. On many soils it ls
advisable to apply commercial ferti
lizer. especially phosphate, lu addi
tion to the manure. An application of
300 to 600 pounds of acid phosphate
to the acre will be sufficient. Sandy
soils often need a little additional pot
ash, which can be applied economical
ly In the form of aurlate or sulphate
of potash at the rate of SOO to 400
pounds to *'uo acre. Aa application
of 100 poum> of nitre te of soda willi

Where manure is not ' available,
some leguminous crop, such as cow
peas, soy beana, vetch, or crimsbu
clover, should be turned under to sup
ply humus and a part of the nitro
gen. Additional fertilizing elements
caa be applied in the form pt com*
merdai fertilizers. Ko def taite rule
eaa be given for the hind or quanti
ty ot fertiliser te he applied, as this
varies with the crt* and soil. In
most cages lt is safe to apply 1,000
to 2.000 pounds ot a high-grade fer
