FAMILY COW RANKS
WITH FAMILY GARDEN
I
If you have a garden to supply tho
table with fresh vegetables, a fiack
yard flock of chickens to furnish meat
and eggs, why not go a step further
as a food producer and keep a fain
lty tow? As vegetables, eggs and
poultry, meat can, as a rule, be pro
duced more economically at home
where conditions are favorable than
they can be bought, so can milk and
butter with all the by products made
from them. Vegetables fresh from
the home garden taste better than ; ,
those that are' bought, fried chickens,
are better when the fowls com« from (
the backyard flock, and milk produc-;
J ed by the family cow Is in the same
class, say the dairy specialists of the

CULTURAL METHODS FOR
THE HOME ORCHARD
VARIETIES OF FDUIT, SEA30N
ANu SOIL CONDITIONS GOV
tflN METHODS.
CULTIVATION USUALLY PAYS
Stimulates and Invigorates th*
Trees Causing Them To De
velop a Deep Root
System.
Orchard culture and methods will
depend on size or age of tcees. nature
of root growth, and the kind of season,
whether rainy or dry, and the type c*
soil in which the trees are growing,
pays B. Szymoniak, associate horli
rulturist, Extension Division, Louisi
ana State University. Generally it is
advisable to cultivate the young
orchard in the same manner that 1
gardc-n is cultivated. A good practice
therefore would he to st«, it the homo
orchard in the home garden. The
young trees must be protected from
injury while plowing. This is dona
hy placing fence posts on either side
of the trees and by keeping two fe^t
away from the trees while cultivating
the soil with horse implements.
Un the upland type of soil It is b^st
to give level cultivation. If the young
orchard is not grown in the garden, or
if r.o garden crops are grown in the
orchard, it should be planted to cow
pens or soybeans dut ing the month
of June, planting them in rows which
should be cultivated. Fig trees grown
under orchard conditions should not
be cultivated, but the soil around the
roots should he heavily mulched witn
pine straw and leaves or other coarse
material. This Is done for the reason
that fig trees have a very shallow
root system and the trees will not do
('.veil if t*.o roots ar<* disturbed. Tho
nu'ch should not be piled up around
the in's.; of the trees but should be
applied at least two feet away from
the ba e. In growing trees in alluvial
soil where the water table is close to
the surface it is necessary to plant the
trees on wide ridges with water fur
rows between the rows to drain off
t lio surplus water.
Under Louisiana conditions, except
In the case of pear trees, which should
not be cultivated, it is seldom advis
able to grow fruit trees in sod or to
allow the grass to establish itself la
she home o"churd because the grass
makes a very rank growth and prob
ably exci;»d>s the .air from the soil.
U also cnn ;e.i the trees to develop
toots t lose to the surface where they
are unfavorably influenced by exces
,-tvo heat, moisture and drouth. Cul
tivation stimulates and invigorates
the trees, causing them to develop a
deep root system. The roots of the
trees are the foundation of the tree»
and must he prop« rly cared for by
pioper cultivation.
After the orchard has come into
bearing it is best not to give it as
intensive cultivation as is given the
young orchard, but a definite system
must be followed depending on local
conditions. The system that has given
good results in practice is to plant
eowpens or soybeans, broadcast or in
rows, during the month of June or
July to be plowed under in the'fall and
the soil planted to a winter cov >r crop
of rye or barley. This can be pastured
by sheep or calves during the winter
provided the trees are not injured.
Cattle should never be allowed in an
orchard unless the trees are protect
ed. The winter cover crop is plowed
under in the spring and the on hard
disced or harrowed two or three times,
depending on the season. Then cow
peas or soybeans are again pi ante-l
during June or July. This system can
be followed not only in the homo
orchard where the trees are mature
but it can be practiced also in pecan
orchards with good results.
Cultivation is one of the most im
portant factors in growing trees. By
cultivation the roots are given proper
soil conditions for best development.
Good fruit and healthy leaves as well
as branches depend on the root system
which feeds them. Therefore the root*
system Is the foundation on which tha
life of the tree depends and must toe
properly cared for by cultivation in ac
cordance with the demands of each
kind of tree grown. Cultivation keeps
the trees in a vigorous fruiting condb
\ K
I tion and enables the trees to resist iiy
«eels ?.rd diseases.
