THE PEANUT PLANT.
ITS CULTIVATION AND USES.
"Every species of plant
requires certain physical conditions for its growth and
and these may be general
or special. If general, then it will be widely diffused;
but if special, its
distribution will be limited."
B. W. JONES,
little work has been prepared mainly for those who have
no practical acquaintance with the cultivation of the
Peanut. Its directions, therefore, are intended for the
beginner, and are such as will enable any intelligent
person who has followed farming, to raise good crops of
Peanuts, although he may have never before seen the
has confined himself to a recital of the more important
details, leaving the minor points to be discovered by
the farmer himself. If the reader should think these
pages devoid of vivacity, let him remember that we have
treated of an every-day subject in an every-day style.
The interest in the theme will increase when the
beginner has pocketed the returns from his first year's
crop. Until then, we leave him to plod his way through
the details, trusting that the great Giver of the
harvest will bless his labors, and amply reward his
toils in this new field.................
