The Iowa Homemaker

Table of Contents

The home garden has come to stay. In every well planned home it is as much a part of the equipment as the kitchen or the dining room. It is an outdoor supply room. However, many people think this "supply room" cannot be improved upon. This is a mistake and the person who believes that his or her garden is the acme of perfection will soon be traveling in a garden rut. Too often home vegetable plots are laid out year after year m precisely the same fashion, the same kind of vegetables in the same place. It has become a habit to do it this way. If rotation is good for farm crops why shouldn't it be valuable for vegetable crops? Gardeners need to get out of the old rut and make the vegetable yield plus instead of minus, not only in quantity but also in quality.
