how to Grow
The Democrat has been seek
ing information as to the best
method of growing late Irish
potatoes in this climate, and we
find Mr. Robt. L. Nicholas,
near this city, to be one of the
most successful men in the
country, growing late planting
of Irish potatoes He says he
lias not fai'ed but one year in
many to raise all the potatoes he
wanted, For the benefit of t he
farmers,we give his experience.
Mr. Nicholas plants about, the
middle of August. He says the
greatest trouble is in getting
the potatoes to sprout during
thedij hot season of the year,
After many trials and experi-
ments he has adopted the fol-
lowing method which has prov-
First,when preparing the seed,
cut the potatoes into larger
pieces thau is .usual for spring
plan tiug, because in the diy
weather the young plant in
starting will need much suste-
nance, and it will obtain it from
the seed according to its size.
In the second place, the seed
should not be put into the
ground to sprout, but should be
spread upon the ground, prefer-
ably in some shady place. Then
cover the potatoes well with
old sacks of any kind, after
which cover the sacks with two
or three inches of dirt, and then
place a considerable depth of
straw over the dirt. Keep the
bed thouroughly wet until the
potatoes show clearly good
sprouting. Prepare the ground
some time before planting.
Plow it as deep as possible, and
then harrow the ground thor-
oughly. If the weather is very
dry, plow your ground still
deeper, and if necessary to ob-
tain moisture, subsoil and then
harrow and roll the ground
to a dust mulch. Plant the
potatoes deeper than is usual
for a spring crop. A great ad-
vantage, say Mr. Nicholas, and
others, which the late-planted
potatoes have over the early
growth, is that the late potatoes
will, if put in a dry place, ke'. p
perfectly all winter, while the
early grown potatoes, as every-
body knows, will not keep in
