The farmer makes one planting of cotton and | it lasts till frost. He makes a planting of corn + % + 1 and it lasts till frost. The same thing is true I with regard to tobacco, peanuts, cane, etc. And | because one planting of field crops suffices, too . many farmers pursue the same policy as to garden J crops. They get into the habit of making one + p|anting 0( vegcul)lra , n th0 spricg and then thinking that will count for the whole year. This is a big mistake. If you will study the planting tables in our Reference Special you will | find recommended about half as many things for $ planting in June, July, or August as in March or | April. ❖ Every interest both of health and economy de- $ man( j s that the average Southern farmer raise I twice as many vegetables as he now raises. In % fact, he ought to raise twice as many of the vege- % tables he is now familiar with ; and he ought to I get acquainted with a lot he doesn't now know * about. Cabbage, potatoes, tomatoes, onions, tur- % nipB, peas, beans, and peppers—these are about all * that many farmers know, and only one crop of % each of these ; not even a second crop of Irish po- 2 tatoes. It is time to broaden out and use more | aspara g US( eggplant, etc., in summer, and | more salsify, spinach, rape, cauliflower, etc., in J w inter. A man who eats plenty of vegetables | naturally eats less meat and bread—or else gets | better nourished by eating the extra vegetables. 2 j n any case, it is certain that food values can be g raised in the garden at half what they will cost |> if brought in barrels, boxes, and .sacks from a store 2 —which is only another way of saying that you + get a 50 per cent, discount on victuals by raising. them in your garden. Or if a garden could ad vertise as business men do, it might run big an nouncements in all the daily papers: "I Sell You the Best Food at Half Price."
