Landscape Planning Service

THERE are three areas to be considered in the landscape of every home, no matter if it be the most spacious mansion or the most humble cottage. These three areas are the public area, the one your neighbors see every day in passing your home, the service area, the one the grocery boy knows intimately, and the private area, the family outdoor living room.

The Winning Ways of Wicker

WICKER is today a comprehensive term, applied alike to wicker, cane, reed, bamboo, rattan and willow: hence wickerware has now become synonymous with furniture and furnishings of an infinite variety in price and pattern, form and finish. As a result of this pronounced variation, wickerware has a winning way of adapting itself marvelously and equally effectively to the large house and the small, the elaborate interior and the simple, the costly home and the inexpensive. ...

How I Grow Head Lettuce

MY land! How do you grow such large cabbages in the wintertime? Aren't they the grandest heads!" So my aunt from the East expressed herself recently at the sight of an even row of Los Angeles Market head lettuce in my garden. It wasn't the first time that California head lettuce has been taken for cabbages, however, so she isn't such a poor guesser at that.

The Rejuvenation of Old Houses

THRUOUT the country, there are many forlorn-looking, even dilapidated old houses with grounds, that can be secured for the cost of the ground, and the outlay to rejuvenate and modernize apparently hopeless cases would seldom exceed the cost of a new building, as considerable parts of any old house usually have much that may be salvaged.

Folks Not Afraid Of An Idea

TEN houses, a store, a church and a grist mill; perhaps a hundred people if you could get them all together. Not much to hold a university graduate with dreams of accomplishment, and the far green field, you may say. But Miss Mary Connor of Token Creek, Wisconsin, ten miles out of Madison, didn't think so.

Garden Reminders

IN February the back of the winter is broken," is the way an old almanac describes this shortest month of the year. It is also the month in which the enthusiastic gardener plans for a bigger and better garden the coming season. Make a diagram of your grounds and plan your work systematically; make the labels for the seed markers now; order your seed catalogs and make your selections from them so that they will be on hand when needed.

An Inexpensive Coop For the Small Flock

THE cost of feeding a dozen or fifteen hens is so little when compared with the retail price of the eggs they will produce that it is a pity for the average family to be without a small flock. But most people will immediately think that the considerable cost of the coop and the care of the chickens would more than offset the difference.

Making the Small Garden Pay

THE mark of a real gardener lies in producing an abundance of high quality vegetables from a limited space. Where conditions are favorable for large yields, high quality products are also likely to be grown. Our last summer's garden was 25x30 feet and produced sufficient vegetables for a family of five besides plenty for fall and winter.

The Kitchen Bookshelf

NEXT to the tools of her trade-- the egg beaters and mixing bowls and all the other kitchen utensils-- there's nothing a housekeeper can make better use of than a bookshelf of ready-reference material. Let this bookshelf be in the kitchen for the sake of convenience, for it will contain books and files of recipes, books on nutrition and home nursing, on labor savers, on home furnishings and on the business of homekeeping.

Ancient Beds In Stately Linens

THE bed of beds is the four-poster. Fortunate is the household which possesses a really old one. It should be treated with a certain reverence. Great pains should be taken to give it the best of backgrounds, that it may display its quaint charms and pleasing dignity without the interference of the lesser furnishings in its own chamber. Within those four walls the four-poster, be it of really ancient lineage or a good modern copy, is entitled to reign supreme.

The Family Garden

SOME efficient and "prepared" people enjoy doing a lot of preliminary work in regard to the home garden. The vegetable plot is neatly planned with the pencil long before the hoe and rake are taken from their winter quarters, and the visionary garden is as neatly an actuality as is the real one later on.
