A List of the Best Varieties of Kuch
Vegetable Suggested by Prof
Hume and Some Direction!
for Testing the Seed
How Much Seed
Messrs. Editors: Seeds may be
secured at the corner grocers or
from the town druggist, and if par
ticularly fresh, this source of sup
ply is all right; bat quite frequently
you get the kind of seeds that do
not grow. Some seedsmen sell their
seeds to dealers sealed in original
packages with the year stamped up
on them. Such seeds must be con
sidered more reliable, and, at any
rate, the buyer should satisfy him
self that the seeds are new, good
don't buy maxyJ novelties.
In the matter of choosiug the
varieties to plant either for the mar
ket or for honi3 consumption every
vegetable grower must be nure or
less a law unto himself. Experience
in a certain locality, on a certain
iven piece of ground counts for
more than all the outside advice
that can be put together. It is so
largely a local matter thxt the ques
tion must always be approached with
the feeling "Well, I'd rather not."
Some good general a 1 vice, may,
however be given.
Do not plaut novelties in large
quantities test them tirst tiy only
a little. Every year new varieties
are brought out by the seedsmen
and after a few years we wonder
where they have gone. Simply dis
appearedproved to be inferior to
other more stable and time tried
varieties and they have dropped out
of sight. On the other hand many
of the new things are really genuine
ly good. Every variety that we es
teem highly was new one time, but , ! !
we must be positive before planting! All Spines are the same with varia
the new things extensively. Then tions.
get a little seed of t lie new thing Egg Plant. New York Improved
and see what they will do. Every I and Black Beauty,
yiar a small plot should be devoted! Lfttuce. Big Boston and Cali
to this test work and the new things j fornia Cream Butter for market,
which prove to be good can be plant- j Tennis Ball and Mignonette are
etl more largely another year and good for home use. Iceberg, a
TT- -voerienced farmer
ha r..smed that some
grains require far differ
ent soil than others;
some crops need differ
enthandling than others.
He knows that a great
deal depends upon right
planting at the right
time, and that the soil
must be kept enriched.
No use of complaining
in summer about a mis
take made in the spring.

STICK MAIXLY TO THE OI.I) VARIE
TIES. But buy tha old varieties, the

weather than almost any other va

most unsurpassed. It is the stand

many seasons, is proof that thev
are the safe one3 to plant.
Now for a little specilic advice
which may prove helpful. In
choosing varieties for the home gar
den some attention should be given
to this point. Because quality
couuts in the price received, but
with a long distance to ship, carry
ing quality is often quite as impor
tant. But what is quality? What is at
the bottom of it? The variety?
Yes, partly, but more than that,
vastly more. It is the variety plus
climate and soil and sun and plant
food and vigorous growth and the
man back of them all. No matter
how good the variety, if it is not
well fed and well cared for, grown
in congenial surroundings, it will
not have the desired quality.
Starve it, let it grow by fits and
starts, and what is the result?
Strong undesirable flavor and some
thing unfit to eat. The question of
light and shade has much to do
with it. Shade reduces the fiber in
the plant, reduces the green coloring
matter in the leaves, lessons the
strength of flavor. That is why
lettuce grown under cloth is so fair
superior to that produced in the
SOME OF THE BEST VARIETIES OF
EACH COMMON VEGETABLE.
Asparagus. Conover's Colosal
and Palmetto are both good stocky
varieties. The first is perhaps the
standard variety to-day.
Beans. Good string beans can
now be had with the strings left out.
This was not possible a few years
ago. Valentine, Longfellow and
Golden Wax are good. Dreer'a Pole
Lima and Jackson Wonder are good
Beets. Early Egyptian and
Ellipse are good.
Cabbage. Jersey Wakefield and
Charleston WakeSeld are hard U
surpass for early crop. Nearly all
tery early cabbages have pointed
heads. Danish Ball head for the
mountain sections is the best late
Cauliflower. Early Dwarf Er
f art or Dry Weather.
Celery. Golden Self-Blanching
and White Plume are the only ones
worthy of attention in the South.
Corn. Stowell's Evergreen,
Country Gentleman and Cosmopoli
tan. Cucumber. White Spine, Ar.
lington White Spine, Boston Spines.
Irish Potatoes. Ked and White
Bliss and Early Rose.
Onion. Yellow Danveis, Prize
taker and Bermuda.
Okra. White Velvet.
Peas. Alaska Gradus, Nott's
Excelsior and American Wonder.
Radishes. The long varieties can
be kept in the ground longer with
out becoming pithy than the round
ones, but for very early, choose
round varieties. They can be ma
tured in three week's. French
Breakfast and Scarlet Turnip and
Turnips. White Egg is one of
the best. Early Milan and White
Strap leaved are also good,
Tomato. Spark's Earliana, Beau
ty earliest variety. Always choose
solid and Poaderosa. The first is
the earliest variety. Always choose
solid meaty varieties.
Squash. Escalloped, White Bush
and Fordhook. Every glower should
try a few of the last variety. It is
unsurpassed as a summer squash.
It can be used before the rind hard
ens and keeps well and is good long
after it does so.
HOW MUCH SEED PER ACRE.
No definite rule can be given.
The following are approximations.
When seeds are sown in a seed-bed,
more plants are sown than are actu
ally needed to allow for selection. '
Beans (drill), one to one and one
half bushels; (pole), one-half bushel;
beets, five or six pounds; cabbage,
four or five ounces; cauliflower, four
or five ounces; celery, four or five
ounces; cucumber, one and one
fourth to two ounces; egg plant,
four ounces; lettuce, three pounds;
cantaloupe, ne and three- fourth
Eonnds; watermelon, one and one
alf pounds; onion (transplanted),
one and one-half pounds, peas, one
and one-half bushels; potatoes, about
three barrels; radish, eight to ten
pounds; okra ten pounds; corn,
eight or ten quarts; squash, two
pounds; carrot two and ooe-half
