Title Gentile Account, page 098
Description Then she has another part set out with luzerne98 that yields six crops a year.99 She seemed so proud of it, and looked so elate[d] in anticipa- tion of the coming spring, whose sweet promise we already feel in the air; that I consider it was simply cruel in the gardener- (coming up with his spade to let the water gain admission to new channels) to elicit by his curt remarks, the cost of this luxuriant growth. One thousand cart loads of sand, and two thousand of earth had been hauled on to the lot by the previous owner, to make the rich loan I saw, and fill up "the slough." Then it was under- drained in every direction to carry off the water charged with "mineral" that percolated through it. Otherwise the "mineral" would poison all the choice plants. She showed us a deep ditch running towards the Clara, carrying off the outflow from her lots. Into it the smaller drains discharged. These are made of stones covered in with willow boughs and must be renewed every five years. She says that while the soil of the uptown lots like hers are improving several of those lower down have had to be abandoned, because the mineral that was washed from above accumulated on them. How strong the water must taste down there! It is quite bad enough up here, clear and thirst-provok- ing as it is, rushing by in tiny channels in the sun!" "XLucerne is the old name for alfalfa, which grows very well in irrigated regions. "In the valleys of central and northern Utah and other iMountain West States, three crops of lucerne a year are considered good. Baled or stacked, it provides hay for livestock during the winter. 98
