In proportioning a 40-acre tract
I would suggest at least 15 acre3
of timber, two and a half acres of
orchard, two and a half acres for
buildings, runways, pens, lawn and
berries. The balance of the place I
would divide into eight equal fields,
on which I would practice crop rota
tion, beginning with corn, followed
by truck (consisting of potatoes,
sweet corn, cabbage, tomatoes, and
other vegetables), then wheat
which would in turn be followed
by oats or rye, and seeded to grass,
this would furnish hay the follow
ing two seasons, then it would be
turned to pasture for cows and
horses, and the following season it
would be pastured by sheep and
hogs, Then back to corn. I would
have the planting of the fields so ar
ranged that no two of the fields
would be In the same stage of ro
tation the same year.
The timber (wood lot) would go a
long way toward solving the post,
lumber and fuel problem of the na
tion. Our forest resources are fast
becoming (exhausted and without
lumber civilization dies. With the
large forests disappearing, we must
look to the farm wood-lot for our
futur,, lumber supply, much after
the fashion of France, Belgium or
Germany. They plant a new tree
each year for each one cut down.
W hat we need is not more laws
to curb the existing trust! and cor
Delations, but a system under which
they will become unnecessary. Then,
and then only, will '.he producers
be free of the strangle-hold which
the financiers have upon them.
