How To Garden For Freedom
BY H. W. HOCHBAUM
T*. S. Department of Agriculture
WASHINGTON?(AP) ? The
Secretary of Agriculture has ask
ed for 20 million gardens in 1948
to help make it possible to ship
nibre food to the distressed areas
abroad. Now that garden plan
ning and seed ordering time is
here, what should our gardens be
like in town and city?
The garden first of all should
be large enough to produce an
adequate supply of fresh vege
tables from early spring until
early winter. Many town and city
gardens are entirely too small,
This is something that you cannot take for granted.
We have a reputation for doing a good job. Bring your
automobile to us for a first class lubrication.

and the few carrots, green onions,,

while enjoyable, do not contribute

1,000 or 1,500 square feet. I
Freedom gardeners?and maybe
one-fourth of these will be no
vices?should not try to grow the
kinds of vegetables that require
large amounts of space. Sweet
| corn, pole beans, squash and peas
i are out for them.
The first choice of vegetables
should include as many as pos
sible of the green and leafy vege
tables, yellow kinds and tomatoes.
These are vitamin suppliers and
health protectors. Included should
be lettuce, chard, collards, kale,
Chinese cabbage, broccoli and cab
bage. Then green and yellow snap
beans and, of course, yellow turn
ips, carrots and lots of tomatoes.
Chinese cabbage, kale, cabbage,
collards, endives will produce
greens late in the summer and
A good garden starts with a
good plan before seeds are order
ed. This plan plainly marks each
row of vegetables, the distance
between rows and the crops to
follow as each row is harvested.
Too many gardeners make only
one planting. Then the garden
produces little in summer and
fall. Surely, we want early rad
ishes, green onions and lettuce.
But a well planned garden pro
vides for succession sowings and
plantings, especially of kinds that
do not require the entire growing
Thus plantings of snap beans,
beets, carrots, should be made so
that some of these can be enjoy
ed all season and provide some
for winter storage. When one crop
is maturing another should be
coming along. No part of the
garden should be bare of growing
vegetables. The garden planner
also selects varieties which vary
in the time it takes to maturity,
thereby extending the season.
Thus, a gardener having early
leaf lettuce like Grand Rapids
should also have Slobolt, which
does not go to seed so soon and
thereby extends the season. Good
planning also takes in account
the quantity of any one kind a
family can consume before this
kind becomes over mature. So a
ten-foot row of radishes, for ex
ample is sown every week, say,
for three weeks in early spring
Instead of one 40-foot row. The
same holds true for lettuce.
All these things hold true also
for farm and suburban gardens.
Many of these gardens do not
supply sufficient amounts of veg
! etables for fresh use, storage,
'freezing or canning. Nor do many
of our farm and suburban gar
deners realize the advantage lar
ger garden space gives them in
growing a wide variety of vege
tables. They should try to grow
more kinds, thereby getting new
taste thrills and extending the
garden season. Besides they can
produce much more for winter
During the war, our Victory
gardeners canned about 3,500,000,
000 quarts of food. Their gardens
produced about 8,000,000 tons, 40
per cent of our fresh vegetables.
Now our Freedom gardeners, can
do as well. Thereby they will re
lease other foods for shipment
abroad. They won't eat so much
bread and breadstuffs. They will
save money, and set a better
