THE Diary OF A PLAIN DIRT GARDENER

Dec. 1 Saturday morning, and I had both Chester and Dick, the neighbor boys, here helping me.

A Rock-ribbed Home on Puget Sound

MUCH more than just a house is this clean-cut-as-a-cameo, informal Colonial home, with homelike Cape Cod porch snuggled under its sloping roof.
