A Leading Salem Grower
Tells How He Handle's His
(Following is part.jpf an ar
ticle In the "Oregon Grower" of
last February the magazine of
the Oregorf-;TJrowertf Cooperative
association, It is by O. A. Milter,
a leading Salem fruit grower:
In the spring of 1916 i got the
blackberry bug. I had been grow,
ing logans. It was some time in
May and pretty late , ttt se$ , ber
ries, but I wanted to plant them
out. We went fo thf wnnda nn
picked our plants. I Hrmijr .be
lieve there is quite a difference in
the plants that are growing wild
in the woods as to-bearing Quali
We lined our yard off some
eight feet apart and set plants IS
feetIn the row. I notice rome
advocate planting 16 to 18 feet
apart and In some cases as high
as 20 feet, but I ' think that it is
too far apart, even, though I have
to cut our vines back several feet.
, The second year we cut the
vines back' to probably 30 Inches
In length so we could ' cultivate
them . both ways again, and ob
tained an excellent growth. That
yeaJr we averaged three pretty
good; ones to the hill. The fol
lowing year we set our posts' dur
ing the early winter ' We had our
berries 12 feet apart, our posts
36 feet apart in the row.
Evergreens Produce Well
, We used an Inch to an inch and
a half piece of board,- preferably
a full inch thick, with a notih
cut in each end, as a spreader for
the wires and a rest for the vines.
We weave our vinei to and over.

The 'third, yearwe harvested' a
crop of about two tons to the acre.
In 1919, owing to the freeze, we
got less than -three toiuf to the;
acre. This past year.fe last
crop we got just about four tons
bat as you all know, we had an
exceedingly dry season, and the
evergreen doesn't agree with Vol
stead -in 'any particular.. It is a
wet plant, it revels, it thrive -in
dampness. You can hardly-fget
water enough to hurt it doting
certain seasons of the year.
We plow thoroughly, as early
in the spring as practical. ' -We
plow deep at the center and" fiat-'
low near the row. We don't fair
plow our ground because "we bow
vetch each year. Then we disc
the ground. Next we follow
through with a grape hoe. It has
a shear on the beam and , disc
with lever to guide it by. You can
shoot it in and out as you pass
your plants. i a great labor
The bulk of your fruit is just
a -little ways' beyond your top
wire; that is, about four and. a
half feet. The farther away you
get from the crown the smaller
the berries. In pruning our black
berries we cut eight to ten feet
off of some of them.
IT IS WOO
Every Truit Grower Here
Should Have Some Ever

of the leading farmers' of the
whole Salem district, had the fol
lowing to say in a number of
The Statesman a couple of years
ago. and, on account . of several
pieces of information he gave, his
words are worth reproduction, as
"In response to your kind invi
tation to write a few words about
the evergreen blackberry, beg to

"It is a prevalent opinion that
this splendid, luscious and pro
lific berry is a native of Oregon.
This has riot been my experience,'
as I paid 50cents fonne plant 43
years ago. Being alone, It grew

in this manner: Cut off the Vines,

"When allowed to grow in pas
ture and wood lands, it is best
to prune the vines to about four
feet, just before picking time;
this relieves the pickers from the

the business men and women
want a short outing. It is just
before the grain, Bartlett pears

we can handle a larger area of

so much demand. A strong ar

Miss Ella McMunn last night
sent the following to the Slogan
editor from "her farm home down
on Route 8 below Salem; just

The slogan editor asks us to
get up and tell what we know
about evergreen blackberries.
Well, we have one bush behind
the barn, planted there by a wild
bird 20 years ago. and the only
reason it was allowed to remain
there was that we would have
had to burn the barn to get rid
