, of Hartford, Ct.
, has an extensive green-house, in which January does business in successful competition with the summer months.
In that green-house strawberries are flourishing at the present writing.
The Times says that cucumbers are now plentifully produced, and bring, for the long variety, (from English seed) fifty to seventy-five cents each.
Peaches are now as large as walnuts, and grapes as large as rifle bullets.
Figs are far advanced; pine-apples ripe; apricots, plums, beans, &c., &c., are a sight to behold; while roses and rare flowers of every variety are in bloom. --Last March the manager sold $500 worth of cucumbers; this month he can sell $1,000 worth of that article.
The grapes alone, in the hot and cold graperies, can produce Col. Colt
a profit of $5,000 when fairly under way.
