Plowing

If the garden can be plowed in the fall, by all means have it done. If it is in sod, it must be done at that time if you want good results to be secured for the following season. In this latter case, plow a shallow furrow four to six inches deep and turning flat, as early as possible in the fall, turning under a coating of manure, or dressing of lime, and then going over it with a smoothing-harrow or the short blades, to fill in all crevices. The object of the plowing is to get the sods rotted thoroughly before the following spring; then apply manure and plow deeply, six to twelve inches, according to the soil.

Where the old garden is to be plowed up, if there has not been time to get in one of the cover crops suggested, plow as late as possible, and in ridges. 

If the soil is light and sandy, fall plowing will not be advisable. Instead, in the beginning of the spring work put on the manure and plow at once. 

If a soil suffer from shortage of rainfall, the labor of double plowing will be well repaid. If that is the case, the ground should be plowed once, deeply, before the manure is spread on, and then cross-plowed just sufficiently to turn the manure well under--say five or six inches. 

On stiff lands, and especially for root crops, it will pay if possible to have the sub-soil plow follow the regular plow. This is, of course, for thoroughly rotted and fined manure; if coarse, it had better be put under at one plowing, making the best of a handicap. 

NOTE: If you have arranged to have your garden plowed by someone else, be on hand to see that no shirking is done, by taking furrows wider than the plow can turn completely; it is possible to "cut and cover" so that the surface of a piece will look well enough, when in reality it is little better than half plowed.


Companion Planting 
- A Complete Guide to Growing Healthy Plants

By creating a healthy garden and lifestyle you will regain energy levels, help restore your immune system and give yourself and your family the best chance of living long, happy &  healthy lives.


Over countless centuries gardeners have been keen observers of nature, noticing how plants perform depending on their surroundings. When people discovered combinations that worked well or observed the relationship a particular plant had with certain insects, their experiences were passed on to the next generation. 

Laboratory research can now prove that certain plants contain insecticides. There are many proven examples of plants that benefit others, such as French Marigolds that can be used to clear the ground of nematodes. The nematodes are attracted to the roots of the Marigold where they are unable to breed. The next generation of nematodes are greatly reduced or eliminated. This is an effective method of protection for a crop susceptible to nematodes - such as tomatoes - especially if the Marigolds are planted heavily in an area a season before planting the desired crop.
