Excerpt from The Nut-Grower, Vol. 14: January, 1915
I neglected to say that before sowing oats and vetch in the spring of 1914 I broad-cast over the land one ton of lime to the acre for the benefit of the trees.
Now let me. Go back and state that in the fall of 1913 I gathered only 550 pounds of nuts. And they came off of two acres adjoining that had come into bearing. On the same twelve acres this year I will hardly gather more than 300 or 400 pounds of nuts.
To say that I am greatly dis cou raged after all my treatment of the trees and land is putting it lightly. The past two years have been very dry. But this spring my trees bloomed very heavily and I expected a fine crop from my treat ment and the increased age of my trees, now 15 years old.
I neglected to say in the proper place that in the spring of 1913 I broadcast upon the land 1000 pounds of Thomas phosphate to the acre.
