I suspect that the average farmer
does far too little plowing—by which .
I mean; not that . h'e:Plovis too few acres;
for he, often plows too many, but that
ho should plow oftener as well as
deeper and more thgrotighly. I spent
three or four of my boyish Summers
planting,and tilling Corn and Potatoes
on fields broken up just before they
were planted, never cross-plowed, and
of "course tough and intractable
thiOughillit tbe season. The* yield of
Corn was middling, considering the
season ; that of Potatoes more thaw
middling ; yet, if thopo:4l4,had been
well plowed in the previous' Autumn,
cross-plowed early in the Spring, and
thoroughly harrowed jUst before plant
ing- . time, I am confident that the yield
wottifthave been far greater, and the
labor (save in harvesting) rather - less
Cost' of the'Fall plowing being
overbalanced by the;'saving of , half the
time necessarily given to the planting
and hoeing. - •
Fall Plowing bus this recommenda
tion—it lightens labor at the busier
season, by transferring it to one of
comparative dullness.. I may have
said that I consider him a good farmer
who knows how to make a rainy day
equally effective with one that is dry
and fair; and, in the same spirit,;.l
count him my master in this art lo
can make a day's work in Autumn
Winter save a day's work in Spring Or
Summer. Show me a farmer who
has nolvd plowed when May oponS,
and is intialliWitpCiolt conscious
ness that his fences need mending and
his trees wailtllffinatiVing, and I will
guess that the sheriff will be after him
before May comes 'round again.
