October Reminders

This is the time of the year to look for opportunities to better the garden. As the present garden fades put into effect new plans and new arrangements that have occurred to you thru the past season. Walks or paths may be laid out, new beds arranged in the garden, new shrubbery and other plantings planned, and if not executed, the plans may at least be put on paper while you are sitting beside the fire these October evenings.

In the springtime, just about the time the red currants are in bloom, one is almost certain to see that little fairy among the birds, the ruby-throated hummingbird, busily engaged on the blossoms. From then on, they are in evidence till after the first frost. Most people like to watch them, as they are poised in air at some favorite flower, presenting an airy grace and shifting kaleidoscopic colors that are indescribable.

Where We Get Bordeaux Mixture

Some of the things around us in nature we take for granted like the air we breathe but few have been so universally at our disposal. The primal things alone are ours without thought or effort on our part.

Strawberry growing is no easy thing as some people would make you believe. First to begin with you must select a well-drained fertile piece of land rich in humus with a gentle slope to the south so the sun may get at it in early spring and warm it, in order that the plants may get an early start so as to come on when the prices are high.
