Where to Place War Garden Plot In setting aside a plot to be planted as a war garden next spring, the first consideration, ii size. A space as small as twenty- feet square, planted to beans, leaf crops and root crops, with careful planning can be made'to yield'* substantial amount of food. At the other extreme, it is estimated tSat a garden half an/acre ia size, with reasonable management, will satisfy the yearly 'vegetable requirements for a family of five, producing all the vegetables needed for summer consumption, and a winter supply for canning. A one-man garden, in a city or suburban location, which covers from five hundred to two thousand square feet (20x25 to 40x50 feet) can easily be planted and cultivated in spare time, and will produce an abundant yield of vegetables to be eaten fresh, and for canning, reducing the list that purchased to very few. . , In. deciding the area which, you can devote to the war garden, keep in mind the errors which were made in the last world war, when flower beds, and parkways were spaded up to plant crops .which had no chance of success. It is far better to have a small garden, properly located, in which good yields may be had. than a-large garden upon which labor is wasted because of poor conditions. Among the first consideration! in selecting a war garden site is sunshine. Vegetables will . not thrive without sunlight. Any location shaded by buildings avoided. Stay as far as possible a\vay from the shade and roots of trees and shrubs. Good drainage is also important. This means that the garden site must never be under water; or remain wet on, the surface long after a rain. Select a place from which the water runs away and avoid ! places where puddles accumulate. j Sunlight and good drainage are ; more important in the small home j garden than good soil. It is easier I to correct soil conditions with mod- j ern treatment. A final consideration in selecting a war garden site is design. Try to make it fit in with the general layout of your home grounds; so that you will not sacrifice the beauty which has been created i« the years of peace.
