Small Gardens About Town Are
Making a Very Good
The crops about Bemidji are
in.a thriving condition. Many of
the small garden plots within the
village limits give evidence of the
great variety of vegetables that
may be grown with success in
the fertile soil of Beltrami county.
Many home owners around town
with two or three lots at their
disposal have planted enough
vegetables to supply their family
for some time.to come. In these
small gardens may be found po
tatoes, radishes, lettuce, turnips,
squashes, beans, peas, and
almost every vegetable known to
the temperate zone, in fact.
Some of those who got their po
tatoes into the ground early can
now supply their tables with new
potatoes from his patch.
