Lack Of Farm Garden
Costs Macon $14,560
Farm people of Macon county
rob their pocketbooks; as well as
their health, when they fail to
grow a garden, says L; P. Watson,
extension horticulturist of N. C.
State college. To prove his point,
the, agricultural leader presents the
. following facts and figures :
The 1940 census showed that
2083 farms in this county had a
garden, but 160 farms iro the coun
ty did not have a garden. The
value of all the farm gardens in
the county, as estimated t6 the
census-takers by the farm people
themselves, .' -totaled $189,910. That
is an average value per garden of
By multiplying the average val
ue per. garden by, the number of
.farms without a garden, it can be
seen that the loss to the coumty
due to the failure of every farm
family . to have a garden totaled
, Watson reported that the State
totals show that $1,868,940 was lost
by North Carolina farm people be
cause of a lack of gardens.
The Extension horticulturist says
that the -vegetables which can be
grown in a half-acre garden would
cost the farm housewife $225 if
bought of vegetables for one per
son. A family ' of five, therefore,
would need half an acre for garderi
crops. . : '
