The Garden l0ditor Is in receipt of
another "shipiment" of flne garden pro
ducts, this time sweet potatoes grown
under the directioti of those "town
farmers" at the Laurens Cotton Mills.
The potatoes are of the Porto Rico
variety and pretty large but the weight
was not given. They are blenty large
enough to eat, however, and will be
used to advantage. The following let
ter, which was found on the office
desk, gives a little inside history of
these choice yams:
The Laurens Advertiser:
From 1.43 acres of land, twe have
gathered 507 1-2 bushels of sweet po
tatoes. This is at the rate of 355
hiushels per acre. This, we know, is
not a record, but Is pretty good when
rowing "taters" is a side-line. Al
