Work for April.
TtUage. —The preparation of the
.soil for the seed is the important
work for this month. Manure is to
be hauled and spread, and the ground
is to be plowed. The waste of ma
nure which occurs after it is spread
is very little in weather which will
not allow plowing.and not very great
in full,hot sunshine, if it does not lie
long. It is much worse to dump the
manure iu small heaps and leave it
for some time exposed to the action
of rains, for the goodness washes out
into the soil and enriches it in spots,
to the serious damage of the crop.
Plowing aud any other working of
the soil should never be done when
the clods will not crumble. Dryness
is essential to useful tillage. It is
much better to delay work than to
leave the land lumpy and hard. There
are many spots on which
Draining may be done in the spring
—especially where there is a good
lull, aud work may progress from the
outlet. The necessity for drainage is
now obvious,and though partial drain
age is never to be recommended where
thorough work will be undertaken,yet
as a demonstration ol the fact that
•'burying crockery" will pay, it is
worth while often to try the experi
ment "just to see." Remember that
the full effects of draining are often
not witnessed until the third or fourth
Spring Grains. —Prepare seed by
selecting with the fan-mili the heav
iest grain—the more times it is fan
ned, the better will be the seed ; then,
when the soil is nearly or quite ready,
prepare the seed by pickling to de
stroy the seed of smut, which may be
attached to it. This is useful for bar
ley, and imperatively necessary for
wheat. Add to a strong brine pul
verized "blue stone," (sulphate of
copper,) until no more is dissolved ;
into this throw the grain, stir thor
oughly, and after five minutes scoop
it out. throw into a basket, let it drip
back into the tub of pickle, then put
in a heap upon a floor ; after 24 hours
shovel it over,sprinkling on dry slaked
lime, thus drying it. Sow sto 7
pecks of wheat, 2 bushels to of
barley,2l of oats. The ground should
have been plowed in the fall for wheat
and barley. Oats do tolerably well
on a sward plowed in spring. For
all either very fine compost or some
concentrated fertilizer,such as a mix
ture of superphosphate of lime and
Peruvian guano—say 100 lbs,of each
—should be ÜBed. Sow, as a rule,
those kinds of grain which are in the
highest repute in your own neighbor
Boot Crops. —Prepare the soil for
sowing carrots, beets and mangels,
and onions, the earlier the better. It
should be deep and rich, plowed in
the fall and as free from weeds as
possible, especially for onions, which
require the finest and mellowest soil,
enriched with good, fine compost.—
The other root crops need also rich
soil, deeper than onion soil, but not
less rich, though the enrichment need
not be of so fine a quality. These
crops can Dot be sown too early,after
danger for hard freezing is passed
and the soil is warm and dry enough.
Beet seed ought to be soaked 24
Potatoes. —At leaßt a portion of the
crop should be planted very early for
security against the rot. The Early
Cottage, White Peachblow, Cuzco
and Fluke are commendable kinds.—
Riant deep,in drills 2.1 to 3 feet apart,
cover with the plow. Harrow as of
ten as weeds appear, until the tops
show very plainly, and once after
that, driving with the rows. It is
sometimes well to turn furrows upon
the rows to cover them a few days
after this, and when a new crop of
weeds appears to harrow again.—
ed or unleached ashes are good used
iu the drill. It is usually poor prac
tice to plant in hills.
Flax. —Sow on very mellow soil,
i'ree from weeds, one and a half bush
els per acre, (for seed and lint both,)
as evenly as possible. Selecting the
heaviest seed, soak in warm water
two or three hours, roll in gypsum
and sow two ways. Cover with a
brush or light harrow.
Manure makes fast in compost
heaps, if occasionally worked over
with the addition of muck or any veg
etable mold, and thus the quantity
available for corn may be greatly in
Liquid Manure has great effect up
on grass, and no better application
can be made upon winter grain,
though the labor attending its appli
cation is considerable. A liquid ma
nure distributor is a rare but needed
article on American farms. In buy
Concentrated Manures do not pur
chase any because they are cheap.—■
The adultration of guano is notorious.
The farmer can much better afford to
mix in the sand on his own farm than
to pay st>s in gold a ton for sand,and
cart it a dozen miles besides. The
other popular manures, superphos
phate, etc., are quite as liable to adul
tration, or even more so. After all,
it is 1 est to make one's own fertili
zers, or buy only of reliable parties.
Horses. —Feed according to the
amount of labor required ol them.—
Groom daily and thoroughly. Give
air and sunlight in the stables, feed
and water regularly, blanket only
when exposed alter labor.
Or en. —Warbles,, or grubs in the
back, often become very obvious at
this season and later ; destroy such
as show their heads. We have never
known of harm to result from killing
the grubs by pressure or by punctur
ing the skin before their heads pro
trude. Feed grain if hard worked,
and do not neglect carding regular
Cons and Calces. —lf allowed to
iun together, it is best to put two
calves upon one cow, as a rule, and
to have these of different ages,so that
both shall not be removed at once
when fit for veal. The calves should
be fed gruel besides, and some veal
raisers allow them free access to dry
corn meal, or better, linsoed-cake
ineal, aud corn meal mixed.
Sheep. —Give ewes and lambs the
attention they require at lambing
time. The flock should have the per
sonal supervision of the owner. Give,
if possible, shelter of some sort, and
at least keep the flock of ewes as
near as possible to tltc house and
closely watched. Distribute the
lambs among the ewes having most
milk, not necessarily leaving twins
with their own dams.
ORCHARD AND NCRSKRT.—Assuming
that the land for the new orchard has
been plowed and subsoiled, and if
need be, drained, and that the needed
trees have been ordered.
Planting may be doue as soon as
the trees come to hand. Do not leave
the roots exposed any longer than
necessary, aud if planting can not be
done at once, cover the roots with
earth. Trim mutilated roots, shorten
the tops and,at the same time, remove
useless branches. Do not plant too
deeply ; make a broad opening for
the roots, spread them in a natural
position, cover with fine soil, press it
down firmly with the foot, and the
tree wili not need to be staked to
keep it in position.
Shrivelled Trees are to be buried,
root and branch, until the bark be
comes plump, aud those that have
started in the package, must be cut
Old Orchards are often brought in
a state of fruitfulnese by generous
manuring and cultivation.
Grafting may be carried on as soon
as the buds begin to swell. It is bet
ter to wait for the first indications of
life in the tree than to do it earlier.
Cious may be cut if the buds have not
Root Grafts should be planted in
nursery rows as soon as the soil is in
Seeds and Pits, for raising young
nursery stock, are to be sown as ear
ly as possible. Peaches that have
been buried in heaps, should be look
ed to. If they were dried too long
before they were put with earth,they
will need to be carefully cracked.
Insects. —Continue to destroy eggs,
and usb the soap wash heretofore
reccommended. When protectors
are used to stop the ascent of the
Canker worm, see that the tar, oil, or
other adhesiv material is properly re
FRCIT GARDEN. —Planting, grafting
and general care of trees in the fruit
garden is the same as for those in the
orchard. Only dwarf trees are in
place here, aud they should l>e mod
els of health and fruitfulness. Those
who wish to try at the different meth
ods of training, should consult Rivers'
Miniature Fruit Garden.
Figs may be ripened in well shel
tered gardens, but they must be ta
ken up and wintered in the cellar, or
be laid down and well protected with
Quince, so beautiful whether in
flower or in fruit, may be trained to
form handsome pyramids, if the lead
ing branches be kept tied up to a
Currants should be in abundance
in every family garden. They will
bear under neglect, but will amply
repay manuring and care. The Cher
ry and White Grape are the best;
there is a great confusion in names,
and auy of the large fruited sorts are
Gwseberries. —Houghton and the
American Seedling are the common
sorts free from mildew, and are more
valuable green than when ripe.
Blackberries are now considered
necessary in the garden The Kittat
inny and Wilson's Early are the new
est sorts, and both good. Dorchester
and New Rochelle are older sorts.
Raspberries. —New varieties are so I
numerous that it is difficult to say !
which is best for general cultivation.
The finest sorts all need covering in
winter The Black-caps are hardy
Grapes. —Plant strong one or two
year old vines on well drained soil,
allow only a single cane to grow the
first year. We have given consider
able space of late to the discussion of
the leading varieties. A garden of
considerable extent should contain
several of the standard sorts.
Strawberries. —Remove the mulch
from over the crowns, but leave the
ground covered. Set new beds as
soon as the soil can be worked. For
garden culture, beds 4 feet wide are
the best; one row of plants in the
centre and a row 18 inches from it on
each side. The plants may be from a
foot to 18 inches iu the row, accord
ing to their habit of growth ; the lat
ter distance is none too much for the
strong growing kinds that make large
KITCHEN* GARDEN.- Asparat/us.-Fork
over the beds if not already done,and
if new plantations are needed make
early. Treat beds of
Rhubarb in a similar manner ; both
do much better when planted early
before the growth starts.
Beans may be planted where there
is no longer danger of frost, but it is
generally too early at the North.—
The Early Valentine is a favorite gar
Beets. —Sow in rows a foot or 15
inches apart, or, if preferred, two feet
apart, with radishes between. Sev
eral early kinds are better than the
Cabbages. —Set out the plants from
cold frames. Our market gardners
put the rows 24 to 28 inches apart,
with the plants sixteen inches in the
rows, and then set lettuce in rows
equil distant between the cabbages,
but this economy of land is not
not usually necessary in private gar
dens. Harden oft the plants in hot
beds by exposure. Sow seeds in open
ground in drills 4 inches apart, and
sprinkle with flour of bone or air
slacked lime as soon as up. The
Wakefield and Early York are the
most common early sorts, and there
are several other and newer kinds
described in the catalogues.
Cauliflower is planted the same as
Carrost. —Sow Early Horn in 15-
inch drills, using plenty of seed to
ensure a good start.
Celery. —Sow in a rich, mellow soil,
in drills 8 inches apart—cover lightly
('hires. —Propagate by breaking up
the old clumps and setting the bulbs
6 inches apart.
Cress. —Whoever would keep up.a
supply of this pungent salad—well
called pepper grass—should make a
sowing every eight or ten days.
Cucumbers may be sown in cold
frames from which other plants have
been removed. Next month will be
early enough to start on sods under
glass those to be planted in the open
Egg riant. —Sow in hot-bed and
keep warm. They are slow to recov
er it they once get chilled.
Garlic— Break up the bulbs into
sets and plant inches apart in rows
a foot apart.
Leeks. —Sow in rows a foot apart,
in fine rich soil, aud keep clear of
weeds from the start.
