Market Gardening. ]
The truck farmer is rapidly'
becoming a prime factor in the
economics of a great city, and'
the nearer he comes to under
standing the art of gardening
the greater his profits and
more extended the benefits de
rived by the community from his
It is not all of truck farming to
plow and plant, to hoc and weed,
but the farmer must know how
to maintain the fertility of the
soil To this end. a good gener
al knowledge of the use of cither
natural or artificial manures is
essential, and then be must have;
full appreciation of the rotation
of crops and of the benefits to be
derived from an occasional green ;
manuring to put the soil in good
tilth, and he would be a poor op
erator, indeed, did he not know
something of the relation that
water holds to the plant creation
and of the best means of conserv
ing that relation.
In market gardening we first
have man himself as the most
imjH>:tant factor, for upon him
rests the responsibility of select*
| ion of a suitable site, the prepar
ation of the soil, seeding, grow
ing and care of the coming crop,
and finally of its marketing, with
• the hundred and -nc details that
enter into these operations.
The field for market gardening
is a Urge one, and ;s as yet hut
partially occupied; this to the
: man who is equipped w ith a good
knowledge cij plants and their re
' quiremeitls, of soils and what is
needed to keep them abundantly
‘supplied with plant food with the
-lightest outlay of capital, the
field is a very inviting one.
The agricultural colleges of the
: land are now equipped to impart
this information, and their facili-j
lies for teaching arcconstantly in
creasing. It is corning to be
i recognized more that theory
and practice, science and art,
must go hand in hand if we would
haw strong all-round men; there
fore the prospective gardener
should supplement his pactical
iexperience with the scientific
training afforded by a good agri
j cultural college.—Mississippi
