FARM AND GARDEN FOR THE MONTH OF JULY. KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 6 July 1882

FARM AND GARDEN FOR THE MONTI OF JULY. ---0- KITCHEN. GAnDEs. If the instructions for the last month were followed out, all heavy draning and trenching ought now to be com pleted, and the chief object should be the preparation of the grounds, and cropping them as early as possible, for the result of the summer products depend principally upon the progress now made. Should we got a dry sumnner, early sowing will be especially advantageous, as crops such as carrots, parsnips, beet, and turnips, will be less liable to run to seed. Soils that have been dug over for some time should again be refreshed with the fork pre vious to sowing seeds. Avoid sowing seeds if the soil is wet. If onions are inclined to spindle, pinch off the heads of bloom in its youngest stage; a bulb will then be formed at the base. Sow largely of broad beans, Brussel's sprout's borecole, broccoli, cabbage cauliflower, savoy, carrot (intermediate and late), onion spinach parsnip, and peas (dwarf and tall). If not al...

POETRY. TO DIY SISTER. From the 'Port Anguata Dipuatdh'of' 15th ult., 'we clip the following: SWritten by the late A. L. Gordon, on the 4th August, 1855, being three days .before he sailed for Australia, whoso fore- I most poet he was. There was much in common between Adam Linsday Gordon and George Gordon, Lord Byron. "To I my Sister" is not included in thoe published collection of Gordon's versoe. Across'the trackless seas I'go, No matter when or whore, ..And few my future lot will know, And fewer still will care. ly hopes are gone, my time is spent, I little hoed their loss, ' And if I cannot feel content, I cannot feel remorse. MIy parents bid me cross the flood, M ly kindred frowned at me, They say that I've belied my blood, An'd stained my pedigree. But I must turn from those who chide, And laugh at those who frown I cannot quench my stubborn pride, Nor kcp my spirits down. -I once had talents, fit to win Success in life's career, : " And if I chose a part of sin, r My choice h...
