CALENDAR OF OPERATIONS.—-JULY. Now the farmer's bopos and fears of a plant of turnips are excited by every cloud, and depressed by every beam of sun- shine. Now we hear on all sides the details of the horrors of "the fly," "the palmer," the caterpillar," and "the grub; and yet all these dangers must be successfully dared, for what is the plight of the light land cultivator without his turnips? Let such, therefore, to attain success, neglect no reasonable precaution or scientific improvement. Drill in rows and use the manure drill. A weric solution of carbon- ate of (lib. to five quarts of water) is a good steep for the seed we have seen a pound of saltpetre added to the ammonia wiih good effect. Keep the hoe or the horse hoe constantly at work; this by keeping the soil loose admits air to the roots of the young turnips, and pushes them vapidly into broad leaf. You may have to sow two or three times for this valuable root, but have, in case of need, especi- ally for your Swedish turnip land, a copious supply of cab- bage plants ready to fill up all gaps; they will supply, by good management, almost all the deficiencies in the Swedish turnips. Do not fancy tha.t by any mechanical means you can kill the flies, or that the black caterpillars are bred in the crushed bones; the boiled bones of Manchester are ex- tensively used for turnips in the midland counties, and the fields where these have been drilled are equally attacked with those manured with the fresh or green bones. Rape- cake powder has been successfully drilled with the turnip- seed in Norfolk and Essex, at the rate of five or six cwt. per acre this fertiliser is very noxious to the wireworm-the most stubborn of all the predatory vermin of the farmer's -crops. Rape and coleseed may be sown this month either after tares or amongst beans, to be fed off for wheat. Let your sheep have shade and water. Ewes, to produce early lambs, should be well kept this month, that they may be the more ready for the ram the beginninp- of the next month. Ewes for this purpose are now commonly bought in. Keep the boars from the sows from this month, until the middle •of November, that the sows inay not farrow in winter. Hoe potatoes and carrots. Lucerne may be cut and hoed this month do not now -it too close to gi-ciiiicl; close cnttmgmJures it. Cut peas and rye. Buckwheat should not be sown after the first of this month. Harvest is now close upon you; prepare the foundations of your stacks; look to your tarpaulins, frames, thatching straw, and to vour wagons. Repair and make hurdles, and have as little fl1"m- .Illg work left to the next busy harvest month as you possibly can.—C. W. JoliNsoiv.
