Seme Hints on Spring Work.
March, tlic " surliest month of all the year,
lias come again, and though in many localities
iev winter still continues to reign, the tocsiu of
preparation sounded 011 every side by nature
begins to be heard.
Now is the time for the farmer to exercise
all his vigilance and forethought, and to see
that every momeut of time is turned to account.
See that a sufficient stock of fuel is laid in at
the house for summer wants, and that the rails
are drawn and laid where they are likely to be
handy for repairing fences. Put the fences
and gates into repair, as soon as the gronndis
thawed enough to fix the stakes.
Have you a stock of roots 0:1 hand ? Every
good farmer ought to have. Now is the time
to feed them" out to the animals on the
farm, especially milch cows and breeding ewes
to enable them to give a full supply of milk for
See that the yeaning ewes are separated
from the rest of the flock, given a little extra
food, and all tags and dirt removed from them
At lambing time, keep tlicm comfortably hous
ed, with plenty of good, clean straw to lie on
end do not.forget to let them have access to
clear, puse water at all times. They require
constant care at this time, if it is desired to
raise the lambs. The ewes may be let out
into the yard every afternoon, but the lambs
urg better to remain in the house till they are
at least a week old, strong and healthy. All
changes and exposure, especially to the sun or
rain, is injurious to them, as also is lying on
the cold, damp earth. The lambs will soon
learn to eat, if a little Cue chopped ha v or oat
meal is placed in a shallow box or 'trough in
their house, while the owes are out, and if it is
desired to bring them forward early for the |
butcher, this extra feeding will help them great- j
Feed the*cows well, and do not let them!
fall ofT iu their milk while waiting for the grass
to come. Give the working animals enough
of such food as will produce muscle, —not fat
—and give them a moderate amount of daily
Keep the yard well littered with straw, and
the cattle confined to it. There is nothing
gained by letting them wander over the farm
making tracks in the soft ground wherever they
go. Stock should never go to grass til! the
ground becomes settled firmly enough to bear
them without showing footprints halt' aa inch
deep. Pile up the manure in the yard as fast ,
as it is made, mixing into Hie heap all the
scrapings of the house, fowl and sheep yards,
hog pens, etc.
Pick over the potatoes, and select tho lar
gest ond-souudest for seed. If they ere ciD, 1
roll them in plaster of Paris, and sprinkle |
plaster over them while lying in the cellar. It
it said to act in some degree, us a preventive
<>f'flic rot. We know of some farmers who sow
a tablcspoonfnl of plaster in each hill, or over
each set, at the time of planting, and who as
cribe the freedom of their potato crop from
disease to the use of plaster. From the known
tendency of the salt to destroy fungoid life iu
its early stages, we think sowing it on the
potato plant might be the menus of mitigating
the rot. We, however, only throw this out as
a suggestion to those who may bo willing to
try the experiment.
Bow a bushel of plaster per acre on cbver
us soon as the ground is dry.
Clover and grass seeds may be sown ibis
month, —on the snow if you like—tliough they
will do as well, if not better, when sown just
after the warm spring rains. Harrowing is j
generally unnecessary, but a light brush har
row is used sometimes with advantage. Where
it is desired to ameliorate the soil, or obtain
good pasturage, aud plow it again in a year or
txvo,We should sow nothing but the pure clover
at the rate of 10 to lo lbs. per acre. But
where permanent mowing meadows are desir
ed, it is well to sow a mixture of equal parts
of clover and timothy, with the addition, per
haps, of some other grasses, cf such sorts as
can be grown in the locality with advantage ;
ray 3 lbs. of Italian rye grass, or 2 lbs. of
meadow fcscae, or 1 11). of red top, or 2 lbs. of
meadow fox-tail, or 3 lbs. of Kentucky blue
grass, or i lbs. of orchard grass. Clover or
grass seeds do better when sown on barley 01
spring wheat than on any other spring crop.
Roll the meadows and winter wheat as soon
as the frost is out and the land tolerably dry.
Old meadows wil' be the better for a good
harrowing in tho spring before rolling.
Do not be iu too gr.ut a hurry to set the
plow to work. Let the land become dry en
ough to turn over mellow. The surface then
soon becomes warmed; and you cau sow im
I'cas can be sown earlier than any other
crop, and no farmer should be without a small
field of them. The white varieties are most
suitable for light soils,!the gray kinds for strong
clays. Tho best sorts of white pea we know
of, are the Golden Drop,and Racehorse. Peas
do well on an old sod plowed rather flat, but
not shallow, and the land may be rolled, after
harrowing in the seed, with advantage. If
the land has been plowed the previous fall they
may be sown at once and lightly plowed or
cultivated iu. Three bushels per acre is the
usnal allowance for seed in Canada,where peas
are very successful) - and extensively grown.—
After the young plants arc well forward, a
topdressing of a mixture of ashes and plaster
will he of great benefit.
Spring wheat comes next the soil for which
out to be in good heart, and free from weeds
and moisture. The laud for this crop is better
to be plowed ridgy, so as to harrow down well
over the seed ; nnlcss a seed drill is to be used.
It is more liable to smut than winter wheat,
siud as a preventive of tLis disease, use a so
lution of three 0;:. of biue vitriol dissolved in a
quart of hot water to each bushel. L.tit coo!
and then sprinkle the solution over the wheat
on the barn floor, turning it over with a shovel
sit the same time, until every grain is dampen
ed. It will be ready ft>r sowing iu twoor three
hours after. Among the best sorts are the
Fife, Canada club, Tea and Italian. It is of
great advantage to sow spring wheat as early
as jtossible, provided the ground is dry and
mellow ; though it is thought by some, that if
sown late it will more readily escape the rava-1
ges of the midge. Two bushels per acre is the !
usual allowance for seeding.
After this, barley may he sown, the label
for which should be warm, -rich and mellow,
and if plowed the previous fall, may be suffi
ciently prepared by going over it twice with a
two or three kor.se cultivator, and harrowing
pittlweca. The common two-rowed variety of
bftrley is perhaps the most reliable or general
mltmvtion, though other sorts succeed best in
particular localities. Barley does jest on laud
