Irish F<Éato(* Culture.
From Our Home
There is scarcely any other crop that
has grown so steadily into popularity
the Southern fanner and track
er as the Irish potatoe, and few
w that? pay so well for the time
labor expended in their culture.

e soil best tsuited to the Irish
; is a cool clayey loam, but with of
té ftiia cron, and at t
[ng them how it should
handled. I
itatoe
proper «manure and culture, paying
crop« can be raised on almoatriny ctÄ
ta valable «Oils to be found in the South
For the extreme early crop* perhaps
the light sandy loams of our piny
woods are better adapted than thffise of
» hdlvier. more tenaciooa struetp-e, as
being warmer, and hence pushing the
crop forward more rapidly dming tb© is
cold, early spring months. Where
discrimination in this respect, {heft!
fore, is pracficable, we should select
the lightest, warmest and best drained
Boil for the earliest planting, and the is
coolest and heaviest for late spring or
fall planting. Whatever the nature of
the soil. it most be well drained and
thorough'y pulverized. No other oof
tivateil food with which we are ac
qnainted draws so largely npon the ele
meaufc of potash f«s the Irish potato, and
belli! in any fertilizer that may be
nsed for this crop, potash or i®salts
should fonn an ttportant constitnen,,.
Wood ashes, cotton seed meal ootton
see d hull ashes, superphosphate of
lime, either singly or in combination it
with each, or leaf mould or muck, are
appropriate and valuable fertilizers--
as also, land plaster applfcd over and
around the Plante at tb^first working
,d the crop. . , I
Our best success has always resulted
from the nse of cotton seed, pretty well
decomposed, or eotfon seed meal and
hard wood# ashes. Stable awniue is --
t.
also a first-rate fertilizer* especially for ^
"urly crop!* on heavy soils. ? *
We nsnally lay off our rows three
£
and a half feet apart—three will answer
on limited grounds-^»? running for- |
ward and back in the same furrow; l
then sprinkle whatever fer!ilizer *we' ^
may use in and On the sides of t|ie
trench so opened; then bed up the, —*
as for cotton; open the < " ^
be<l deep with a shovel ors
plow, drop tjio seed out %o aboï
eyes to the piece, two ffiecOô together,
onoffoot apart in the open fuffoWiand
cover lightly with the piow. It ib bet
ter to not cover the seed more than ttu
or tfiree inches deep aA first, as dwp
covering retards the sprouting and
"coming up." At soon a« the plants Qj
begin to break through the ground,
throw another light furrow on the».
After this let them remain until four» to

ônê-horse tnrning plow. If the land
be very foul with grass or weeds, it may
be necessary to go over the cafop once or
twice with tbe hoes to keep it olean
and hill np any spaces that the plow
may have left.
The early crop should be plan!
from the 1st to 15th January. !
market we should plant the whole crop
abont that time; for fs*poily the
plantings ought to be repeated every
t\co weeks up to the first of April.
For the late or fall crop the first of
Antrast is tbe best time to plant,
erly managed, th® fall crop can be
nearlv as fine and prdduotïve m 1
early one. Of varieties we should oi „
plant three —Early Rose* Jaettin
White and Peerless. If planted at the
same time, these will give a «©mpletp
snecession, and are among the beat and
most reliable varie««, in eulttiration.
