GARDEN OPERATIONS. BY A PRACTICAL GARDENER. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 22 December 1856

GARDEN OPERATIONS. (From the Arr/us.) BY A PRACTICAL 0AHDENEI1. Nothing is more important to an amateur gar dener than a judicious selection of the subjects he has to grow, a good choice of seeds ; and he must be guided by his wants. If he consumes a large quantity of any sort of vegetable, he must take care to be well provided with a succession. If there be any subject among ordinary garden crops that he cares not for, let them be discarded, because they take up room for nothing. In general, the grower, for his own family use will apportion his crops to his wants ; but it is too often the case that a garden gets crowded before he is aware of it, and then something must be thrown away to make room for others, or others are excluded al together. The most important vegetables for family use are potatoes, cabbages, carrots, turnips, parsnips, lettuces, beetroots. These ;ire all im portant, because always in season. Beans, peas, cauliflowers, and brocoH are luxuries and not always in se...

SIR JOHN BARLEYCORN. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 22 December 1856

SIR JOHN BARLEYCORN. (From the Argus, Deci 2.) The Customs Bill of Entry informs us that dur ing the first six months of the present year there were imported into this colony nearly eight thou sand bushels of barley, and upwards of twenty three thousand bushels of malt ; tho accreo-ate value of which may be roughly estimated at £17,000. Taking the average of seasons in England (from whence the greater part of the malt referred to was imported), barley is worth about four, and malt eight shillings a bushel. In Victoria the raw grain realises about seven and sixpence, and the manufactured article from ten to twelve shillings a bushel ; and a' comparison of these quotations with those for wheat which are given in the market reports, justifies the inference that the cultivation of barley must be quite as remunerative aa that of wheat, and naturally conducts us to the inquiry — why should we rely upon foreign sources for a supply of the grain consumed in our breweries ? An Englishman's p...
