Money In Asparagus.
In setting out an asparagus bed, the
Editor of fhe PracticalFarraer stopped.
bUherlng with roots long ago. He
... . .
says: "We cau grow better asparagus.
.iiu .J u 1 1 iiiiuj tfllQ IUBII llilUi
the nursery roots. We have cut Quo
asparagus in one year from the sowing
of the feed, and never did so from the
planting of the roots. If we weri gnlii!-
to plant roots, wo would never take.any
older than one year. Rut ndhe are
Tbe previous preparation of the soil
U the most Important matter. A met-
low, andy soil la best for early aspara
gus, lut any soil that is rich enough
will make flue stalks, and though a
heavy loam will not give as early
asparagus for the market, it will make
(iuer shoots thun too sandy a soil.
Break the soil deeply, and if the sub
moll is hard, subsoil deeply. Turn in
with the plowing all the manure you
can make the plow over, even ff you
l.ave to seiid -a m-111 ahead to rake.it
into the furrows, as wo have done.
Run out furrows four feet apait and
put a heavy dose of commercial fertil
izer of high grade into the furrows.
Run u small shovel plow repeatedly
through the furrows to mix the fertil
izer with the toil. Tlieu sow the beeil
in these furrows and cover lightly.
As they grow, gradually pull the soil
to thein. tiutil level, in .the meantime
thinnlug them out to two feet apart.
Tire thluufngs can be transplanted like
cabbage plants or onions, and a few
rowscau be made to plant a good mauy,
Work as clean as an onion bed all dur
ing the season. Two feet apart iu the
tows will be close enough.
The plantB that make seed never
make as fine stalks as the the staminate
t male plants, as the seed bearing
weakens them; hence it is always bet
ter to take them out, Jeaving the rows
thick enough to allow this. Then the
rtize and (itiallty of the asparagus de-
t)euds on the amount of manure you
put ou them, and any variety is about
ts good as another.
Salt huB long been thought needed
by asparagus, hut this is a mere notion.
If you uee koinii a the source of pot-n-h
in the fertilizer, it will give you
all Ihe salt you want. Salt will kill
weeds quicker Chan than-it will aspara
gus, this 1b about all the good salt does
Seed sowu In very rich soli, heavily
manured, will give some asparagus
the next spring after sowing if the
sowing is done as early as it is possible
t prepare the laud. We had rather
buy seed and sow where we want the
asparagus to grow, than to plan
roots given to us free."
