Lecture in Market Gardening. MARKET GARDENING, unlike ao riculture, is not a science and an art ; it is a business. The man that goes into it must be a pusher. He must know how to clean a shovel and hoe, and he must know a pumpkin grove from an oyster bed. The successful man should also know how to use a trowel. Pears ' soap, and cascara compound. If one starts his ranch near the city, he has the advantage of knowing whether the fashion demands round or square turnips ; while if located in the country, one need not keep his whiskers trimmed nor his boots blacked. For city marketing horses ai e generally to be preferred to oxen. Crops are variously marketed by the box, pile, or original package. All vehicles should be washed every day, and put in the ice chest. Irrigation is essential to the successful culture of garden crops. Water is generally used in connection with it, althovigh air pipes might be employed. Never pay more than twelve and one-half cents per hour for help. It is best to locate near our Agricultural College, as it is the only place where labor may be obtained at this price. Taking up the crops in their alphabetical order, we first come to Asparagus ; Latin name. Asparagus officinalis . This vegetable stands our climate w ell when it does not freeze. It is used to take the place of milkweed greens, and as a fly trap in country residences. It is a rank grower, and the large, white stalks are tapped on the southwest side by means of a knife with a fish-tail blade ; and the gray- ish-white juice which comes out is boiled down, making a delicious " jell. " In certain countries of Europe it is also used for making a white wine. In canning, care should be taken to screw down the covers tight, as the canned fruit is readily attacked by shot-hole fungus {sj)ororia) . This can be prevented by pvitting it up with an equal part of Bordeaux mixture. When thus prepared it will keep for an indefinite period. Insect pests — the most troublesome is a species of blue ant, with brown spots on its wing ■coverts. At the time of this writing no effectual remedy was known. Next on our list is the Cabbage. This vegetable is raised in beds. In spreading up the sheets care should be taken to (the sound of the chapel bell indicates that the period has ended). We will continue the lecture at this point next time. September 3, 1872. 167
