Suburban Alfalfa Patch

How can we rid the alfalfa of weeds? As we are obliged to hire help, and

do not succeed in getting the hay cared for until we have mostly stalks

without leaves, I have put the cow on it to pasture it off.

The cow knows how to handle it, but you will not get as much alfalfa as

if you cut and carried it to her. If you cut sooner you will get rid of

many plants which are propagated by the seeds which they produce, and

you will also get better hay, more leaves and fewer stalks. Cut it about

the time it begins to bloom, not waiting for the full bloom to appear.
