Uur visual method oí treating a strawberry bed after the first picking season is to invert it and sow either cowpeas or clover, says a correspondent of Bural New Yorker. The only profitable erop we have ever gathered immediately succeeding turning under a strawberry bed is medium clover. Any strawberry bed which needs a plow to assist in clean - ing it up should never be run a second season. We would remove the mulch and cultívate and hoe as we did the previous season if we wished to carry over the bed and begin at once after the first hoeing to spray with bordeaux and continue spraying at intervals until growth ceases, repeating twice the following spring.
