Orchard and Garden Notes. SPRING PLOUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 7 October 1911
Orchard and Garden I . ' Notes. (By E. Pescott, 'Journal of Agriculture') SPRINGO PLOUGHING. The orchard should receive'its spring liloughing at once ; and it is important that this should not be' de layed. Early ploughing is always much more easily done, and it is no trouble afterwards to work up a good, loose surface. The longer the plough ing and cultivation are delayed, the harder the work becomes, and the greater the loss of water from the soil. A level, well tilted, and loose surface, free from clods, and free fFom irregu larities is what is needed in summer. Where leguminous cover crops are in full flower, these should be ploughed in at once. If the crop be a havy one, it may be rolled or mowed, before it is ploughed in. SPIAYING. Peach aphts will be making its ap pearance, if it has not already done so. As soon as it appears, frequent spray ings, with a nicotine solution will be required to keep it in check. It is ad= visable to spray early, and to spray a second time a few ...
VEGETABLE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 7 October 1911
VEGETABLE GARDEN. Frequent cultivation will be neces sary this month, especially after waterings Owing to the excessive and frequent rains, many seed ings that came up earlier completely damped.off ; hence fresh sowings will be necessary. All saedlings, such as tomatoes, onions, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, etc., that have succeeded in growing may be planttd out int the Ledi. . Wherever such pests as tomato weevil, cabbage moth, cabbag- aphis, cur. worms, etc., were prevalent in the soil iast season, it would be advisable, before planting, to give the beds a dressing of such substances as will tend to reduce or eradicate them. These preparations include lime, to hIcco dust, pestend, and manurial insecticide Seeds of the pumpkin and melon family may be sown, as well as seeds of tomatoes for late crops.

Berry, with his fine physique and condition, forced the pace at a great rate, until he so far forgot the rules that public opinion veered round to Corrigan, who showed most science. With trainiug, 1 Berry should make a good boxer. A very pretty pair of sparrers ap peared in P. Savage and Son Peterson, both of whom boxed neatly and pleased the audience.

MORNINGTON PROGRESS ASSOCIATION. TO TIlE EDITOR. SSir;-At' the -ublic meetinig held in the Mechanics' Institute, Mornington, last Friday evening, Mr G. T.

In reply to that question I would like to say that the Association is very much alive, aid in support of this state mont read the reports of its monthly meetings in the 'Standard.' Whilst I claim life for the Asociation, I do not for one moment lay claim to any supernatural powers. In fact, I will. go so far as to say it cannot give life to the dead or sight to the blind. That it is not so powerful as it ought to be, I freely admit, but, this state of affairs is in no way attributable to that e-ergetic band of true citizens who work it, but ralther to ,h it grand army .f patriots who cit snugly in their own back ya.rd w.mdering if the Progress Association is alive.

OUR LETTER BOX. (We de not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by corres. pondents.) LANGWARRIN PROGRESS ASSOCIATION. To the Editor of "The Standard." Sir-Twelve months regularattendance at the Progress Association and the secretary's report, are what justified my conclusions regarding the decline in power of the Association. As " Radiator" desires additional proof, please allow me to add: (1) The Mutual Improvement Society's candi date defe.ted the Progressive Associa tion's candidate for the Cranbourne Council at the local poll by 5 votes. (2) The two candidates from the "Progress" were lower on the poll than the " Mutual" candidates at the School Board Election, and the -"Mutual" members now occupy the responsible positions on the Board. (8) The "Mutual"practicaly conitrols the women's branch of the People's Party here, as its representatives hold the responsible offices. (4) The Progres sive Association were decisively de feated by Mr John Clarke in con ne...
