Counsel for May

The following comes from W. W. Phelps, Almanac for the Year 1859: The Third after Leap Year; and after the 6th of April, Thirtieth year of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Great Salt Lake City, UT: J. McKnight, 1859), 7:
MAY comes upon the tapis for a full share of labor; corn, beans, flax, hemp, cucumbers, melons, squashes, pumpkins, and all the garden nick-nacks, too delicate to be handled by frost, must have their portion of mother earth now, in order to obtain an early share of the WET and WARMTH of Taurus and Gemini. Early turnips may be sown in April and May.
