I have a large field in which we have generally grown the coarser kind of vegetables - Potatoes, Cabbages, Jerusalem Artichokes, etc., and such things that do best in a very sunny open place. Finding that now, as I do not go to London, I do not require such a large supply of vegetables, I am going to sow and grass over half the field. It is between this and the vegetable part that I have been planting the row of Damson-trees - half common and half cluster, by way of experiment. The Bullace, a true cottager's fruit, is a variety of the Damson, and not to be lightly regarded for both preserving and pies. It ripens soon after other Damsons, and so a succession is made.
