deer mr. editor:—
plese alow me space in yore val
uble paper to rite a peace on goob
er culture, as it now looks like us
farmers will ha fter quit cotton and
ciiverssify by planting diffrent kinds
of crops, and i have chose goobers
for the farmers: you see, he can
feed his hogs as well as the rest oi
the family oh goobers lusted of corn
the best time to plant goobers is
betwixt the dark of the moon and
the second quarter in may, but ap
ril won't be too early if you can get
to same and can find the goobers to
be used, there is several kinds of
goobers suitable to our sandy lomey
soils, but the best one is the Span
ish, however—most goober parchers
have drifted over to the vlrginny, as
it is bigger ansoforth.
the land should be plowed with a
goober plow by turning same after
frost, and then it is a good idea to
have same drug with a spike tooth
borrow, after which you can spread
on a coat of 10 perse nt assid, if you
can find annyboddy selling it on
creddick, but if not—stable manure
will do if you have a nabor with
army to loan you till you buy a mule
and cow. broadcast it in radio style,
that is—all over the hole field.
plant the goobers yore self, and
don't resk this job with the chilluns,
as they will eat same up faster than
they will drop them in to the goober
furrow which you made yore wife
make with the garden hoe. as soon
as possible, kivver them with a 14
tooth rake, or a pitchfork, if you
can borrow one. see that they ain’t
deeper in the ground than yore lit
if the crows is bad about scratch
ing up yore goobers, fix you up a
scare crow, if you have anny extry
clothes to put on same, but if you
have none, just stand out in the
patch yere self, and the crow won't
no the diffrence betwixt you all.
don't thin them out after they come
up, as aomeboddy will always steal
about haff of what you have and
that will leave them to a nice stand,
pull when ripe and eat raw or roast?
that is—for the folks, but the hogs
will eat them Just so. mr. editor, rite
or.foam if you want anny artickles
on other timely vegger tables for
the farmers to diversify with.)
