Thus, one will find advantage to sow lettuces both to three weeks from April at September; radishes every ten days of March to October; carrots every March to July; dwarf French beans every three weeks from May in mid-August; corn salad every three weeks from July to October; turnips once a month from March with but…

- the catch cultures are intercalated between two cultures, one of early product, the other late one, on same surface. There still, the vegetables with very fast growth are interesting and allow a good use of space: radish, salads, turnips, corn salad.
- the intercalated cultures are practised before the full blooming of a slow principal vegetable to push, like cabbage, the asparaguses, the melon. Thus, the ridged rows of asparaguses are perfect, at the end of the winter, to collect heat and to be used with the first sowing as radish early products.
