To keep Pototoei from rotting . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1860

To keep Pototoei from rotting . ED . ILLINOIS FABMEB : It may be interesting to some of the readers of your valuable paper , to know my experience in preserving potatoes from the rot after they are dug . Two years ago my potatoes rotted very badly in the ground . I dug them , and put about one hundred bushels into a dry cellar . They still kept rotting so fast that in the space of two months , having sorted them three or four times , I had lost one-fourth of them . I then put about half a bushel of air slaked limo among them , and they kept perfectly well until the next spring . I have tried it since with success . BUKLEIGH DUNLAP . Peoria , Feb . 10 th , 60 . At all times when potatoes are affected with the rot , dry air slaked lime has proved of great value when sprinkled over them , whether in the cellar or pits , and from this , some have supposed that sprinkling with lime at tbe time of planting would prevent tho malady , but this is not well established . Lime has a strong aff...

South fan lortienltnrsl Society—Monthly Meeting . KOMI BIAUTV . —Mr . Lamer had gathered a bushel of this fruit from grafts set two years ; thinks highly of it for good quality and early bearing . Benjamin Vancil planted one hundred trees twelve years since ; those with high heads arc either dead or dying ; begin to decay on south west side . It was recommended to let hogs run in the orchard to pick up the wormy fruit , but large hogs ( Land Pikes ) sometimes injure the roots . ( China and Essex would be valuable for this purpose , as they have a less propensity to dig . —ED . ) Col .

For tbanilDOlararmar . Ma . EDITOR , :- We have a sohool library here , and one of . the books is , Pear Culture , by Field . This writer seems to think that the Angers quince is much better than any other kind of stocks on which to work the pear . Now . I wish to know if we can get any dwarf trees conveniently that are really growing on that identical variety of quince root or stock , and what the price and where obtained ? 0 , if I could only raise some nice pears , how happy I should be ! And it might make my boys happy too . X . Bates , HI ., Jan . 10 th , 1860 . REMARKS . —The Angers quince is now mainly used , upon whioh to work the pear . Good trees can be had at most of our nurseries . If you will order a catalogue from any of the parties in our advertising columns , the needed information will be obtained . We shall devote some space to pear culture before the season of planting . Last season we grew over a bushel of luscious pears on three year old trees , planted in the s...

Tlit Culture of Potatoes . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1860

Tlit Culture of Potatoes . Those near large cities grow large quantities of this vegetables , which always affords a good profit . There labor is to be had at cheap rates , to keep down the weeds and secure the crop ; hut this is not always the case on the farm , yet the farmer not only should have a good crop , but should not he compelled to pick them out of a weed fallow , which he so often does . It is well known that south of the Terre Haute and Alton R . R . the soil is not so well adapted to the culture of potatoes , though very good potatoes for summer and fall use can be grown , yet for winter and spring use , the quality is poor . Most farmers in that part of the State prefer to purchase seed at tho north annually , under the impression that it docs much better , which is doubtless the case . This seed is grown in Michigan , and the counties near Chicago ^ and occasionally a part of the supply is from Wisconsin , but nearly all of the supply is first sent to Chicago , as a ...

The Farm and Garden . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1860

The Farm and Garden . From the Chicago Viesa and Tiitrone . Wat Urbana , Feb . U , 1860 . A- CHAPTER ON SPRING WHEAT . The cultivation of spring wheat has now become one of the -great leading features of agriculture in the northwest and extending as far south as the line of the Great Western- Bailroad of Hlinois . To a great extentj the culture of winter wheat has been abandoned in the same territory as unprofitable . This grain delights in a heavy clay , or clay loam , but will not thrive on sandy or dark loamy soils , especially if the latter prove rather moist . In the early settlement of the country , this crop was looked upon as very uncertain , and as a whole , unprofitable ; but further experience has demonstrated that the fault lay mainly in ignorance of the proper preparation of the soil and the time of sowing . OF PLOWING AND THE SOIL . This must be done in the autumn , for it is useless to sow on spring plowed land , as the chances are two to one against success . Plow de...

VARIETIES . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1860

VARIETIES . Here doctors will disagree , and it seems quite necessary that enterprising seedsmen should rename and introduce old sorts that have for a time been superseded by others . Some years since the Bed Biver was all the go , but it became , from some cause , perhaps tbe want of change , unproductive . It has been returned to us rejuvenated and made popular under the name of Canada Club , and we have the old Siberian under the cognomen of Rio Grande . The bald wheat make pure white flour when of good quality , while the bearded wheats all give a yellow tinge to it , but without impairing its value . SPRING WHEAT VS . WINTER . Tinder our present system of farming , labor applied to the culture , harvesting , thrashing and marking of winter wheat , is of the most expensive kind , being at that season of the year when farm labor is most in demand ; besides , winter wheat is a biennial , and is at the expense of two years rent . We do not say this is a matter of necessity , for we...

BETHLEHEMPTE . —We have copied the above cut from Elliott , as our specimens were all above medium size . The tree is an upright , vigorous grower , and exceedingly productive . J . W . Wakeman , of Cottage Hill , Du Page county , has fruited it several years , and it has not failed of a large crop . Size , medium ; roundish , flattened ; color pale yellow ground , striped , and shaded with bright red , dotted with irregular brown dots and covered with a bloom , which is easily rubbed off ; flesh yellowish white , tender , with a mild sub acid juice and pleasant flavor .

We have no trees of it for . aale , but will be happy to send our friends scions and buds for trial . There are many varieties of apples that have proved valuable , but unfortunately only a few trees have been set out , and hence the attention of fruitgrowers has not been called to them . ...

Vetches . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 March 1860

Vetches . EDITOR ILTONOIS FABMEB : —In Ireland , farmers grow vetches for soiling hogs , cattle , & c , in the summer . There are two varieties , the winter and spring ; the winter vetches are sown broadcast early in the fall , and come in about the middle of May , the other variety is sown early in the spring , and come in about a month later . Although we have plenty of grass about that time in Illinois , in some districts farmers are obliged to keep their animals in a dry lot or small pasture , owing to the in- - different fences ; moreover , the best breed of hogs in a short time become prairie aligators when allowed to roam in frog ponds , & c . If farmers in Sangamon have not given vetches a trial , there is time to get a little seed , and the house of William Wilson , Limerick City , Ireland , would be a likely place to procure it from . One acre of vetches will feed more than three acres of ° oats , and it leaves the ground in good order for wheat . P...
