Farmer Should Have Garden for
Produotion of Vegetables.
NECESSARY TO HAVE HOTBED
Suitable Contrivance May Be Con
structed Cheaply by Digging Hole
Two Feet Deep and Lining In
side With Boards.
(By G. H. ALFORD.)
,,fvery farmer should have a good
home garden. The sole object of this
garden should be the production of
vegetables for family use, and thereby
materially reduce the grocery bill. If
more is produced than is required in
the home for use in the fresh, state,
and for canning, the surplus can be
easily sold to the neighbors or near
by grocery stores.
To properly and successfully run a
garden it is practically a necessity to
possess a hotbed. This may be con
structed cheaply by digging a hole 18
inches or two feet deep, 6 by 12 feet,
lining the inside of this with boards,
and running the north side ten inches
above the ground and the south side
only four. This gives a slant towards
the south, furnishing protection from
the north. About a foot of fairly good
horse manure should be allowed to
ferment and be pl-ted in this bed,
arrangements bein& made to secure
drainage at the bottom. Over the
manure from four to six inches of
good garden soil should be put, and
the bed may be covered with canvas
or glass as desired. In this the cab
bage and the tomato and the like
plants may be raised for setting in
the garden. 'After the heat is gone
from the bed it becomes a cold frame
and may be used at odd times for the
growing of radishes, lettuce and other
crops which do not need bottom heat.
The garden itself should be well
plowed early in the spring and have
as much manure as possible turned
under. Such crops as peas, cabbage,
beets, onions and other cold resistant
plants should be planted as soon as
possible. When all danger from late
frosts is ovgr, tomatoes, peppers, egg
plant, and so forth, can be set out;
beans, okra and all frost-tender plants
should also then be planted. For the
smaller growing types, such as tur
nips, carrots, lettuce, spinach and like
plants the rows need not be more than
a foot or 18 inches apart. For cab
bage, collards and so forth, the rows
should be two feet apart and the
plants two feet in the rows.
Tomatoes and the larger growing
vegetables should be set from three
to four feet each way. Peas can be
planted in rows eight inches apart and
three feet allowed between each pair
of rows. The cultivation in the nar
row middle can be done with a hand
cultivator. It the garden is large and
the rows put wider apart, ordinary
horse cultivator with many small
teeth may be advantageously used.
The ground should be kept well and
thoroughly mulched on top after hav
ing been prepared deeply. The weeds
should be removed from between the
rows and plants, and where possible
a succession of crops should be ar
ranged for, so that the garden will
furnish various and sundry vege
tables all through the season. For
instance, a short row of radishes
should be planted, and a week or ten
.days after another short row should
be pilt in. Where tomato plants are
well -looked after and sprayed toma
toes may be reasonably expected from

ed in succession so that the tender

the fall. A sharp lookout should be
kept for insects and diseases. Borax
mixture is a good fungicide' for use in
the garden. Arsenkte of lead should
be used for biting insects. Do not, how
