1 Texas Southern Almanac April 1860 on Mon May 31, 2010 10:52 pm

All of the Corn being now planted, unless it be some of the new or wet gournd, perhaps; fininsh Cotton-planting also, as quickly as the weather will admit of....So Soon as the Cotton is in, or even before, commence upon the Corn, and give it a thorough working; if at all practicable, give a second plowing and hoeing before the close of the month, so that this crop may be laid by with safety, until after the Cotton-scraping is over...But do not neglect the young Cotton, to give the Corn a second working before the Cotton is cut out...Continue to set out Sweet Potato sprouts, when large enough, and the weather permits. About the last of the month, sow Millet....A bushel of clean seed will sow four acres of good land. Contineu to sow Corn in drills, at intervals during this month and the next. Plant Pumpkins, Melons, Squash, Peas, etc. It the spring is a mild one, shear Sheep. They should previously, however, be washed, at same time picking out what burrs may be in the wool....It makes a good wet-day job; and they are more easily picked from the sheep, than from teh wool after it is shorn.

Garden Calendar.
Continue as in last month. Plant Melons, Squash, Cucumbers. Set out Tomato, Pepper and Egg-plants. Plant Beans, the Lima, Seewee and other pole sorts, and also dwarfs.
