1 Texas Southern Almanac September 1860 on Mon May 31, 2010 10:58 pm

Copied from Texas Civilian Yahoo list. Posted September 2007 by Annette Bethke

Affleck's Southern Rural Almanac, and Plantation and Garden Calendar for 1860. Starting page 104, September.

The Plantation
Not a day nor an hour of favorable weather should now be lost; but push the gathering in of the cotton crop with all hands...Whilst cotton is too wet for picking, Peas may be gathered and thoroughly dried before being put away. Winter Oats, Rye and Clover must be sown if practicable, during this month.

Garden calendar
We can only refer to the instructions given last month, to be
continued during the present one. After the first week, it will not do to risk large plantations of Peas, Sweet or other Corn, or Snap Beans. Sow Early York and other Cabbages, to be set out in January. They may require a little protection during severe weather. So of Lettuce. Sow Turnips and Mustard, etc.

[He then discusses composts for fruit trees; he mentions Apple, Pear, Plum, Quince, Grape-vine, Peach, Nectarine, Cherry, Fig, Orange.]
