The Gardener Looks Beyond the Battlefields

THE man in the next block, who developed the best Victory garden in the neighborhood last year, said to me the other day as we walked toward the bus stop, "I used to think that I needed a vacation each year in some place that would afford a complete change-- some place like the Maine woods, or the Great Smokies, or Sequoia.

HOW TO Grow Lettuce the Year Around

FOR all its fragile appearance, lettuce is probably the toughest vegetable you can grow. Last spring a freeze that killed all cabbage in my garden left lettuce unharmed.

You'd Better Grow SOYBEANS

Should You Grow POTATOES?

AS A field crop that requires large plots, special equipment, and the all-important know-how, the potato is in normal times left pretty much to the farmer. But these aren't normal times. Last spring, potatoes were off the market for weeks on end, and even precious seed stocks were sold as food.

"Salvage Cottage" Puts Its Inches to Work

"DON'T buy it new if salvage will do" was the war slogan when this little cottage went up in Santa Barbara, California. The big living-room window was concocted from four separate windows retrieved from an old garage. The brief picket fence that marks off the garden without hiding it came from reclaimed lumber.

MANY a carefree householder is being turned away from his fireside armchair these winter evenings to the basement or garage workshop, to give first aid to a seemingly endless list of household equipment-- chairs, tables, cupboard doors-- that have finally come down with the rickets, no matter how rugged they were in their prime.
