Suggestions For February Garden
If these things have not already
been attended to plant and cultivate
the following crops:
Bread is said to be "the staff of
life," but the Irishman contends that
"I'ertaties is the loife its silf."
Soil should be light loam with plent
of humus. Well rotted stable manure
is good, but not fresh manure, as it
is said to stimulate "scab." The fer
tilizer should contain plenty of phos
phoric acid and potash. The North
Carolina Department of Agriculture
recommends about 800 pounds pe.
acre of fertilizer made up as follows:
Acid phosphate, !00 lbs; cottonseed
meal, 600 lbs; nitrate of soda, 100
lbs; sulphate of. potash, 400 lbs.
Plant the potatoes about -i to 5 inches
deep and at the rate of a peck for 100
hills. It is customary to cut the seed
potatoes, leaving about two eyes oi.
each piece. Plant the hills 12 to 18
inches apart in the row and 36 inches
between the rows. Cultivate often
and keep free from weeds. Early
Hose and Irish Cobler are good varie
ties to plant for the early crop.
I?;i,lwhs: radishes, rosv an.l red.
The first to climb out of Mother
Radishes should be planted in light,
u-l I -drained soil in drills 8 inches
nnnrt and II inches in the row. One
ounce of seed should plant a drill 10C
feet long. Plant the seed shallow,
uhniit. inch dppn in moist, well pul
verized soil. Have 3 plantings, about
ten davs anart. They should be ready
fnv in nhnut 25 nr 30 davs. The
time will, of course, depend on' the
climate, tne sou ana tne care given
them. The several plantings should
Voon th tsihl? p.unnlied at all times

to be crisp and good must grow rapid
