Bro. B. has in his grounds 77 rows of Lucerne, which are each 48 yards in length. This plot furnishes his three horses with green meat the summer thro’, & is cut at an avarage four times in the year. His gardener cuts-up three rows at a time several evenings in the week, & observes that one row fodders one horse for 24 hours. The crop is kept clean at considerable expense; & would soon be over-run with weeds, was not care & attention bestowed. As soon as the whole rows are gone thro’, those that were cut at first are ready to be cut again. He has 15 lights of melons, & 16 lights for cucumbers; & 40 hand glasses for ridge-Cucumbers & other purposes.
