GARDEN WORK IN OCTOBER.

In this and the three following months, dung, dig, and trench all vacant ground, to be ready for spring crops, covering in the dung well. Plant out early cabbages to cut in May. Towards the middle sow early pease and beans, and earth them up when two inches high. About the end plant all kinds of fruit trees; and, before the frost sets in, gooseberries, currants, rasps, and flowering shrubs. All kinds of trees, whether fruit or forest, transplanted this month, will thrive better than later. Dress wall trees and standards. Prepare ground for planting trees
