The Diary of a Plain Dirt Gardener

JANUARY 1. As we drove thru the mountains today on our way home from a holiday trip east, Donald, [the Dirt Gardener's 7-year old son], kept pestering me to stop to dig him an evergreen.

There should also be a generous margin of unmortgaged income with which to take advantage of the present buying opportunities which this year offers.

Put Your Attic to Work!

This Is the Way We Iron Our Clothes

NOW we iron the easiest way, that easiest way depending upon the type of electrical ironing equipment we select to suit our individual family needs. If all of the laundry work is done at home, then certainly the ironing machine, with its ability to cover a large amount of surface in a small amount of time, is the answer to easier ironing.

Then I Met a Lady Who Owned a GLASS GARDEN

ONE MORNING as I stopped to look at a flower cart on the corner, I saw an English Primrose. It was the beloved Primula that I had grown for so many years in a garden in the country that was no longer mine. I promptly bought it and took it home, where it bloomed for three short days and then died.

The Club Has a Family Party

CERTAIN months automatically bring certain interests to clubwomen. January finds us pretty much in the holiday spirit still.
