Manure for the Irish Potato.
Stable manure has been much used by
Virginia farmers for the Irish potato, and
many, no doubt, regard it as the one per
fect and complete manure for this crop.
It is excellent for the purpose beyond a
doubt, as are also some other forms of do
mestic animal manure. But the farmer
can hardly afford to take this manure for
the purpose, and we hold that no animal
manure is exactly suitable for the potato.
Of course a plant must partake, to some
extent, of the nature of the food it imbibes,
and if the food is filth the plant cannot en
tirely escape contamination. This being
the case, it is worth while, in a sanitary
jioint of view, to pay some attention to the
nature of the plant foods of the crops upon
which we ourselves feed.
Now, not only can the farmer find better
use for his animal manures than to employ
them in the production of potatoes, but he
can get a cheaper one from his woods, and,
with the aid of a little superphosphate to
quicken action, an equally effective one as
to results. Well rotted litter, such as may
be scraped up on any farm, has been found
excellent for the potato, used in conjunction
with superphosphate. The latter alone
will not act near as well as it docs when the
litter is also applied. The potato is a crop
that seems absolutely to demand some
coarse material in the ridge for the potatoes
to grow in. There is no doubt that it is
because it keeps the ridge mellow, and it
gives the tubers room to grow. A very
light sprinkle of the phosphate, with plenty
of rich pine straw mould, will produce as
good a crop of potatoes as a full application
of stable manure.
The litter should be at least half rotted,
and the entire trench made for planting the
sets should be filled with it. The sets may
be dropped first, the litter put upon them
and the superphosphate applied on top the
mould. Or the plan may be reversed by
putting the superphosphate first, the litter
upon that and the potato above all.
A piece of land planted thus to potatoes
in March or April, and the crop removed
in July, would afford a most desirable
preparation for a turnip patch next fall.
It would be fine for winter cabbages or
collards also, the latter a crop (much ne
glected) that ought to be planted largely
for ewes, milch cows, &c., in winter.
We advocate this cheap manure for the
potato. Let the stable and stock pen
manures be spread over the wheat, clover
and oat patches early in spring, or applied
to the corn land, trucks, &c. It will pay
better thus. Rotten pine straw and good
commercial fertilizer in small quantity will
do for the potato, especially in the interior,
where none is raised for market.
How an lowa Dairyman Milks.
The following, from The Dairy , con
tributed by an lowa dairyman, shows what
absolute cleanliness means: “It is said that
it is as hard to be clean as it is to be good.
Well, I think it is not hard to be good,
even for a dairyman, if he only does as he
would be done by, and just as easy to be
clean. This is my method of doing it:
At five o’clock I am in the cow stables;
the feed prepared the night before is put
into the feed boxes, which are first cleared
of all remnants of former food; and, if sour,
they arc scoured out with warm water and
a broom. While the cows are eating they j
are thoroughly carded and brushed, as well I
as any well-kept horse is, and all over, from
head to switch. The udder is sponged, if
necessary, and wiped with a clean towel, j
and not a dingy rag. The gutters arc then
cleaned out, and the stalls, a common road
broom being used to finish after a broad
scraper, which draws the manure down to
the trapdoors into the cellar. The floor j
and the gutters are then littered well with j
sawdust, when we have no straw. For ■
fifteen cows this takes an hour. Then I
go to breakfast. At half-past six the cows
are milked, and each milker has overalls
and an apron made of striped ticking, with
which be can milk in bis Sunday clothes
and slippers if he likes; and any lady may I
go in with a silk dress on and not hurt it. I
As the milk is drawn it is strained at once j
in the deep pails which stand on the plat- j
form and are kept covered; the milk pails
have strainers, and a double strainer is kept
in the deep cans, so the milk goes through j
three strainers. But this is not really ne- 1
cessary, as I would cheerfully drink a glass j
. of milk direct from the cow as I milk it. |
But out of consideration for my customers
who buy my butter and milk, I put the
milk through three strainers. As soon as i
the deep pails are full they are closed and
carried to the milkhouse and handed to the
person who sets the milk in the poolorthc
creamery, or, if it is put into shallow pans,
strains it at once. Now, there is nothing
hard to do about this. It is so easy after
having begun it and got into the way of it,
that it would be hard to stop it. And 1
don’t see how it is easier to be cleaner than |
we are in our dairy.”
Ashes.
Save all the ashes from the fire-places,
and put them on the smoke-house or cellar
floor, where they will keep dry till wanted
for use. Then at thetime of planting corn
have a hand to go along before the planters
with a bucket of ashes, and drop a full
single handful immediately under each lull.
As the ashes are put down, let the hand
knock over it a little dirt with the foot, and
then set the foot upon the spot for the corn j
to be planted. In this way the planters
will know just where the ashes are depos- '
ited, and will not fail to get the seed in the |
right place. A handful of good bard wood ,
ashes, such as are usually made in every I
country fire-place iu winter, will make a
good strong stalk of corn grow on quite
poor land, and each stalk will yield an ear
of solid grain that without the ashes would
be but sorry stuff. There is no better fer
tilizer than ashes of bard wood, and being
in a concentrated form, a very little of it is
required to make good corn. There is
probably no better use to make of it than
to put it all under the corn. Two or three
bushels is enough for an acre of corn, a
handful to the bill, and as the ashes cost
nothing, it thus becomes the cheapest and
best fertilizer for corn that can be employed.
We have during the winter saved up quite
a lot of ashes, which we intend to use in
the above way, having been led to this way
of fertilizing corn by the advice and prac
tice of an old darkey, who always makes
plenty of good sound corn. It is important
to keep the ashes dry till used. — Petert
bury Index-Appeal.
The woodpeckers, which apparently de
stroy the trees by their constant drilling,
are only after the insects, and often save
trees that would be destroyed but for their
aid. There is no bird more valuable to an
orchard than the woodpecker, and the surest
sign of insect depredations under the bark
is the visits of the woodpecker to the trees.
He never attacks the trees unless in search
of food.
A smart farmer’s wife kept an account
of the number of miles traveled in a year
by her husband in going a long distance to
water his horses. When he heard the
figures he had water brought conveniently
near, and also, like a sensible man, took the
hint broadly, and put many conveniences
in the house to save his wife steps.
A pint of soot from the chimney or stove
pipe in a pailful of water will make a liquor
of the greatest value for flowers and plants
of all kinds.
No system of farming is complete that
dispenses with clover as a rotation crop.
