If you really want to maximize your recovery time in bed, whether you are asleep or not, pick up a set of earthing sheets.
The first earthing should be done with a hand-fork, and quite loosely, to allow the heart of the plant room to expand.
The after-cultivation consists in thorough tillage until the time of handling or earthing up the plants.
earthing up the Onions was proved by Miss Ormerod's experiment to be effective.
The leaves are eaten as salad; but, when so used, they should be blanched, either by earthing up or by tying the plant together.
The earthing up of celery this month is not to be recommended, unless a little very early supply is wanted.
The earth should be drawn up to celery with a hoe preparatory to earthing up with a spade.
The culture is the same as given for celery, except that no earthing or blanching is required.
A fortnight or so later the earthing must be carried a stage further by means of the spade.
In seven to nine days after spawning, the beds are ready for earthing over.
Old English eorþe "ground, soil, dry land," also used (along with middangeard) for "the (material) world" (as opposed to the heavens or the underworld), from Proto-Germanic *ertho (cf. Old Frisian erthe "earth," Old Saxon ertha, Old Norse jörð, Middle Dutch eerde, Dutch aarde, Old High German erda, German Erde, Gothic airþa), from PIE root *er- (2) "earth, ground" (cf. Middle Irish -ert "earth"). The earth considered as a planet was so called from c.1400.
Any of several metallic oxides, such as alumina or zirconia, from which it is difficult to remove oxygen. No longer in technical use.
Note: The Earth was formed at the same time as the sun, about 4.6 billion years ago.
Note: It consists of an inner core made of iron and nickel, an outer core of liquid metal, a mantle, and, on the outside, a crust.
Note: The surface of the solid Earth is in a state of constant change as the rock is moved around by the processes of plate tectonics.
Note: On the Earth's surface, the oceans and the continents form the stage on which the evolution of life takes place. The atmosphere above the surface circulates, producing the daily weather.
(1.) In the sense of soil or ground, the translation of the word _adamah'_. In Gen. 9:20 "husbandman" is literally "man of the ground or earth." Altars were to be built of earth (Ex. 20:24). Naaman asked for two mules' burden of earth (2 Kings 5:17), under the superstitious notion that Jehovah, like the gods of the heathen, could be acceptably worshipped only on his own soil. (2). As the rendering of _'erets_, it means the whole world (Gen. 1:2); the land as opposed to the sea (1:10). _Erets_ also denotes a country (21:32); a plot of ground (23:15); the ground on which a man stands (33:3); the inhabitants of the earth (6:1; 11:1); all the world except Israel (2 Chr. 13:9). In the New Testament "the earth" denotes the land of Judea (Matt. 23:35); also things carnal in contrast with things heavenly (John 3:31; Col. 3:1, 2).
