While most of the local gardens are now patches of weeds his Jimd is filled with second and third i crops of vegetables which are being shipped to St. Louis markets and sold locally.

In addition to the 1 vegetables there are, 100 four-year- old cherry trees, 19 Burhatik plutu trees and 100 Concord grape vines on the land, besides 25 hoes, which take up one corner of the plot. There are now growing 6,000 cabbage plants, 3,000 collards, 3,000 Brussels sprouts, squash, peppers, tomatoes, kale, radishes, green beans, corn, onions, mustard greens, and egg plants. Beans are being shipped to St. Louis tills week with Mr. Lee receiving $2 per bushel for them.
