It Lies Too High For Irrigation

You could probably grow alfalfa to advantage if the soil still deep and

loose, getting less, of course, than by irrigation, but still an amount

that would be very helpful in your chicken business. Otherwise, as the

land lies higher and perhaps out of sharp frosts, you could grow winter

crops of vetches and peas and thus improve the land while furnishing you

additional poultry pasture. The latter purpose could also be served by

growing beets, cabbage or other hardy vegetables during the rainy

season. This is prescribed because of the apprehension that the soil may

not contain moisture enough for summer cropping without irrigation.
