CELERY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 February 1914
CELEIRY. It is the object of every good kitchen gardener, to have a supply of- well bleached, crisp celery, and to have it, as early and late as possible is one of the points in gardeninig to -which attentioii should be paid. At the same time, there are difficulties in the way of obtaining it early in somine places to which it is advisable to call atten tion, as the situation best fitted to bring forward early peas, cauliflowers and potatoes, is not always the one that produces early celery. It is generally admitted that the celery of our gardens is an improved variety of a wild plantl found in ditch es and other marshy places, where ii grows, seeds, and reproduces itself in the usual way; and iti is generally found in the greatest vigor when near the sea coast or a tidal river, salt in some shape being beneficial to it. Grow ing naturally in such places, it is hard ly surprising that- the progress of the cultivated plant in dry, hot garden soils during the summer months is slow and...

CRP :ROTATION ANDU MANURE. The. dairy farmer, who wishes to remain a daii'y farmer must( see (1) that his total acreage must not- be de voted to feeding dairy stock; (2) that a rotation of crops is necessary, - and (3) that the constituents of the soil sold off the farm in the shape of milk must be returned to the soil in the shape of manures.
