Salem Is a: Center for Spinach Growing and for the Canning and Dehydrating
and Marketing of This Product of Great and Increasing Importance
This Was Two Tons More Than He Averaged the Year
Before, and He Has Been Growing This Vegetable
For a Long Time and Has Been Successful.

(In answer to a, letter ot In-,
iniry. Royce Allen phoned to The
Statesman that he had nothing in
particular to add to his report ot
Inst year on spinach growing. He
stated, however, that he raised
tlx tons of spinach to the acre
last year; -and that is decidedly
new. and encouraging to other
powers. Mr. Alton is one ot the
outstanding producers of spinach
In the Salem district. Following
was his report a year ago:)
Editor Statesman: Growing
r plnach on beaverdam, I find, is
one ot the easiest cropa we grow.
We prepare the ground as soon
M we can get onto it in the spring
nd nsuallr about April 10 to 15
when we sow the seed, drilling
i' it ia rows 12 inches apart, and
using about eight pounds or seeu
; per acre. - V- 7'
r The seed germinates quickly
and the plants make a rapid
! growth and soon cover the ground
so they choke out j any, weed
growth that may start, making
it necessary for but little culti
vation. -
It is usually ready to harvest
in 42 to 4a days. ,
So the ground may be used for
a second crop like potatoes, ruta
bagas or cabbage.
In harvesting we use a two
wheel garden drill frame with a
knife attached, that one man can
push, cutting the plants under
the ground just below the crown.
We have enough help to pica
warmth 'and life to the soil. The
largest percent of the fertilizers
contain plenty of nitrogen and
pltOBpbortc acid, but is a little low
in potash. The use ot Just any
old kind of a commercial fertili
zer may not give the required re
sults. The most satisfactory fertilizer
to use requires some little study
and experience. We are now us
ing a stirring plow. On this form
of a plow the mouldboard Is short
and has a steep upward curve.
By the use of this plow the soil
i) not only inverted, but is also
pulverized to some xtent. wnen
a sandy soil, as we are now using
for our garden. Is in the proper
condition of moisture, we have
not found a better tool for pul
verizing it than a good plow. For
winter and early spring spinach
we do the most' of the plowing in
the fall. Boon after frost, and for
late spring and early summer
spinach the ground Is plowed in
the spring. We have found that
it is better to have the ground
plowed and settled by a few rains
before planting in tb-j fall, and
for late spring and summer spin
ach we find plowing Immediately
it us as fast as it is cut, putting
it into sacks; about 25 pounds to before planting to give good re
the 6ack to avoid crushing as suits. After plowing,, the ground
much as possible, and sending to
the cannery by truck as quickly
as possible, as it wilts very quick
ly during the hot weather, aiTd
requires quick handling. Our
spinach will average about four
tons per acre. Price at cannery.

fchould be thoroughly -worked with
the spike-tooth harrow. Experi
ence has taught lis that the spike
tooth harrow is the best tool for
the work for which it Is designed.
There are three ways of plant
ing spinach seed. .
First, by drilling the seed In
rows, from one to two feet apart,
usine from four to six pounds of
seed per acre. The thinning ot
the slants should begin when the
leaves are about one inch wide.
Second, by planting or drop
ping the seed In hills about every
three or four inches, and In rows
one to two feet apart. Thls-re-qulres
a great deal of hand labor.
Third, by broadcasting the
Reed either by hand or machine.
using six to eight pounds of eeed
ner acre, and covering them with
a harrow or rake. This form of
planting the weeds may cause a
sreat deal of trouble and Increase
the cost of production, as tbey
must be removed by hand, as the
weeds take a great deal ot moist
ure from the spinach.
The first cultivation Is done by
a double wheel hoe, by going
straddle of the row with a No.
12 nlanter Junior. Th3 cultiva
tion is then followed up by cul
tivation about once a week by
the use of the Midwest Utllitor
earden tractor. We have found
the Victoria or Thick l-eai to De
the best suited for our climate
and soli, and it matures In about
so (fairs. These varieties will
stand from two to three weeks
before shooting to seed.
Up to the present tinre we have
not had any trouble with Insects
attacking this vegetable, ana
therefore do not use any spray.
The yield to an acre of 6plach
'depends a great deal upon the
local conditions. When the vege
table is in good rich sow. iree
from weeds and with plenty ot
moisture, we average two tons per
acre, i
Throuah the season we have
been able to sell on the local
markets a reasonable amount at
from 4 to 5 cents per pound in
lots from 20 to 100 pounds. The
canneries as a rule will take all
the acreage under contract at a
fair price.

Spinach Is andtaer crop that U
aiahly desirable tor use as greens.
Sftlnach thrives ia cool weather
and should be grown both as a
spring and a fall crop. In the
extreme northern part ot the
country only one crop may ba
grown, in sections where the
winters are mild the seed can be
planted in the fal) and the plants
can: Jemaln in the ground kll

in. the ooen eround as soon as
tte soil can - be - worked. The
rows may be as close as 7 Inches
and 12 to 15 seeds should be
sown to a foot of row', the plants
being thinned so that tbey will
have 1V to 2 inches of space for
their development. ,
Spinach requires a very rich
soil in order to make It- grow
quickly. A bed 5 feet wide and
30 feet in length, ana having
about eight rows running the
length of the, bed, will furnish
enough spinach for the ordinary
family. The entire spinach plant
