CANNING VEGETABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1915

CANNING VEGETABLES. A great deal of prominence is being given just now in American farming jour nals to .the question of the benefit the farmer's wife derives from haying home canned vegetables on the larder shelves. Here is one lady's opinion: For ten or twelve years I have canned vegetables for family use, and have met with good success. When I have a large quantity of peas or string beans to can I prepare them in the afternoon ready for cooking, pack into glass jars, cover with water, and let stand till morning. I use a large wash boiler and lay a thin board in the bottom to prevent too rapid heat ing. " ' When using the common Mason-jars, -1 put on the rubbers, and screw them so they will not be too tight to allow the steam to escape. After the jars are placed on the board I fill the boiler with cold water almost to the caps, cover, and bring to a boil. If pint jars are used three hours of vigorous boiling will do, but quart jars need an hour longer. Do not let the water stop bo...

CULTIVATION OF GHERKINS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1915

CULTIVATION OF GHERKINS. The manager of the Canning Factory at Leeton is of opinion that a fair market could be found for gherkins for pickling purposes if the right varieties can .be grown on ^he Irrigation Areas. The mat ter was fiifst brought under notice about twelve months ago, and an endeavor was made to obtain the right class of seed. As a result of inquiries, a supply of the variety,, krjown as the West India gherkin was obtained and planted at the vegetable experimental plot at Leeton. The plant ing was a success as far as the production of fruit was concerned, but it transpired on the submission of samples to a leading pickle and sauce manufacturer that this was not the variety desired for pickling ? purposes. The price offered by this firm for the West India gherkin is only £5 per ton, at which price it would not pay set tlers 3to grow. It was, however, ascertained from the fijm approached that for the particular pjfckling gherkin they required, and which is now imported,...

PIG RAISING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1915

PIG RAISING. By H. R. Alexander A Wallow Necessary.-A1 very neces sary adjunct to a successful pig-rearing establishment is a good water wallow. In well-improved up-to-date establishments this wallow is usually cemented and made somewhat elaborately, the pigs being given an easy slope to enter or leave the excavation. In hot weather a wallow is indispensible for the health of pigs, as also is a mud bath. The mud bath has a cleansing effect on the skin, and helps destroy parasites. It Will frequently be found that lice infestation of pigs is much more prevalent during cold weather than is the case during summer months, the reason being that during winter weather the pigs are not so anxious to wallow in the cold mud, and are more given to huddling together. Use of Netting.-The conveniences for yards (see plans already published) should be built of some strong, well woven special pig netting, or a really good rabbit-proof netting would answer the purpose provided the posts were placed ...

WATER FOR GARDENS DRAWN BY PUMPS AND WINDMILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1915

WATER FOR GARDENS DRAWN B7 PUMPS AND WINDMILLS. A question which was " 'several times brought under notice at settlers' meetings last year was that of the' charges which should be imposed for the supply of water from the irrigation system for gardening purposes and stock watering by means of pumps (either hand or. power) and wind mills.. ... The. present regulation in this regard imposes the following charges: For stock and domestic supply, £1 per annum. " . For gardening purposes only-One eighth of an acre, 5/; one quarter of an acre, 7/6; three-eighths of an acre, 10/; half an acre, 12/;-2/ for every additional one-eighth of an acre. Settlers generally considered that these charges were in excess of what they should be, and it was urged in support of this statement that the water remaining in the channels after irrigation of any given block had been completed would, if riot pumped out, gradually evaporate or seep sway, and in any case be lost to the Com mission. With the coming of...

WENTWORTH IRRIGATION AREA. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1915

WENTWORTH IRRIGATION AREA. The Wentworth Irrigation Area, being a much older (settlement than other irriga tion areas under , the control of the Com mission, a good many of the instructional i;otes which are written particularly for more or less inexperienced irrigators will perhaps not have the same application to the Wentworth Area. An effort will, however, be made, from time to time, to obtain information especially for the bene fit of the Wentworth settlers, and the fol owing notes have in this connection been contributed by Mr. W. J. Allen, Irriga tion Expert of the Department of Agri culture. Citrus Culture-At the present time a great deal of attention is being given by settlers on the Wentworth Irrigation Area to the. question of citrus culture, and they £ re strongly advised to try, if possible, and plant only good varieties of orange stock. Whilst it is recognised that by so doing the purchase of trees will entail the ex penditure of more money, it would b.3 better, Mr. All...

HAY IRRIGATION AREA. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1915

HAT IRRIGATION AREA. The Stud Bull.-Some time since set tlers at Hay requested the Acting Com missioner to make a bull available on the area with a view to the improvement of the quality of the Area's dairy stock. The matter was favorably considered, and" on the recommendation of Mr. M. A. O'Callaghan, State Dairy Expert, arrange ments were made to purchase from the Berry Experiment Farm the Shorthorn bull known as " The Irishman," which animal the Dairy Expert considered was the most suitable one available for the purpose in view. The animal has just' been subjected to the tuberculin test (with satisfactory results, and arrangements are being made for the bull to be trucked to Hay almost immediately. Ppssiblv by the time these lines are being read the Irishman will be at Ha v. The following particulars in regard to the breeding of the animal, which are extracted from a recent number of the ''Agricultural Gaztte," will no doubt prove of interest to settlers on the Hav Area.

Vegetable Processing. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1915

<f V- t Vegetable Process ng. In the light of the effort being made to establish the vegetable canning industry cin the State's big Irrigation Areas, the following article, taken from the " Daily Telegraph" of the 4th instant, is worth bringing under the noticejdf settlers gener ally-since many of them may not have seen it. The statements made regarding the possibilities of the market for canned carrots and other root vegetables should be well taken to heart, since these crops are so readily grown to advantage on the Areas' vegetable soils: "One only needs to go into any grocery or provision store and see the array of attractively got-up vegetables, dried and processed in various ways-all imported goods-to realise that there ought to be a big, and growing field for local produc tion and manufacture in this direction. And it does not require much inquiry to brings home the fact that our people rely upom imported goods to fill their require ments. It was the same years ago ...

Instructional Notes. FRUIT NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1915

Instructional Notes. FRUIT NOTES. By W. J. Adams. Planting and pruning of deciduous trees should now be completed. Wrapping Young Trees.-All the young trees planted this season will require wrapping with hessian or some other covering such as straw bottle covers or paper, to protect the trunk from the hot winds and the sun; This is necessary to prevent the -trees from getting hidebound, particularly trees that have.been planted late. Sufficient root growth is riot made by the time the hot weather sets, in to keep the trunk fully (supplied with nutri ment, and unless it be protected in way, the bark tightens on the- wood an^ prevents a vigorous flow of sap, arid in consequence the growth of the tree is lim ited. Hessian or old chaff bags cut into strips 2in. or 3in. wide and about 18m. long will do. Thi>s covering should be piit on loosely, starting at the bottom and winding up to the first branch; if the trees are cut back to straight sticks, just leave three or four buds uncover...

TOMATOES—A WARNING WORD. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1915

TOMATOES-A WARNING WORD. Many settlers will be looking to toma toes as a pot boiler, and wisely so. But don't depend entiriely on the cannery or the pulping factory. Remember the early fresh tomato market.Last year Narrandera growers were netting very high prices per case for tomatoes long be fore there were any locally-grown fruits for sale in Leeton. Planting out should be put in hand at once, and remember, too, that staking pays. Last year's work at the Peter sham plot proved that. Mr. Hogbin had splendid ripe tomatoes, on his stak ed vines, three weeks earlier than on the unstaked-and this early crop caught the fresh market before the glut.

Asparagus. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1915

Asparagus. BY H. HOGBIN. From experiments at the vegetable ex periment plot, Leeton, I am convinced that asparagus can be cultivated profit ably on the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Areas, and the following notes are written in the light of my experience. Asparagus seed may either be sown broadcast or in drills on prepared ground, where the plants can remain for one or two years before planting out in their permanent quarters. A deep sandy loam is besjit for the cultivation of this vege table, I but some of the poorer classes of soil by cropping and well working can soon be nlade satisfactory. The plants produce a cluster of fleshy roots growing from the base of the stem, where also a quantity of buds are formed; from these latter shoots push upwards annually; these in their young and tender state are the edible parts. The * most favored method of preparing the land for asparagus in England and France is by cropping it with peas, and when that crop is matured and the haulm ploughed in and...

Dairying and Irrigation. (Continued from last issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 September 1915

Dairying and Irrigation. BY G. H. TOLLEY. (Continued from last issue.) Laying Out An Irrigation Dairy Farm. Having selected the piece of land to be operated, and being satisfied as to the permanency of the water supply, the first thing required is a complete contour sur vey and a general design for the particu lar class of irrigation desired, in such a manner that it may later be extended and eventually form one harmonious whole. At the last Easter Show an irrigation larrn was exhibited in miniature, which many of you may have seen, and in con nection therewith the Water Conservation Commission issued a pamphlet giving brief details and drawings of how to proceed to establish a similar farm. Some of the" information therein is incorporated with this paper, and a study of the sketches published will, make the matter clear. \ There ^are not many irrigation engineers practising in the State, but any engineer or surveyor can take a series of levels by following the- directions given, an...
