: - Get the land ready for-the
crops. Plow well; harrow and re
harrow until' a 'perfect seed bed la
obtained. Remember that good
preparation is half the battle.
2. Use good seeds. It will be
cheaper to pay a good price for
seeds than to plant those cf pDor
quatiiy.i Then arrange some said
plants, and , grow your own seeds.
8. Get the tcols out some rainy
day and see that tbey are in good ,
conditionjo d o good, work . Look
after the plantar especially. Yen
oan't afford to have a poor stand
from careless planting.
4. -Take special care cf the
horses. See that the harness does
not rub at.d that the collars fit.
Groom well and rub their shoul
ders three or four times a day.
6. Study the feeding of brood
sow; fix up the farrowing pm;
when the pigs come give them
careful attention and keep them
6. Make a start with pure-bred
poultry. Fix up houses and run
ways. Rid the premises of lice.
7. Put the spray pump to work
in the- orchard. Kp up the
gdrden planting and cultivation.
8. r Paint the house.. Buy a
lawn mower and start it running.
Whitewash fences and outbuild
9. Order needed seed of cowpeae,

your own hay this year and to get
the nitrcgen you heed from the
air. . . ' . ;; .
10. Give the boy an acre work
