Potatoes as Money Maker in Ontario
Ontario, Oregon, June 7, 1911.
Ontario Commercial Club, Ontario, Oregon.
Gentlemen:—Replying to your favor in which you ask me for
statement of my potato crop for last year (1910);—
I have found that the Early Rose variety is best suited to this
climate, both on account of their excellent keeping qualities, as
well as being valuable for early market.
Last season I planted nine rows of Early Rose potatoes about
30 rods long, from which I marketed 9.000 pounds of potatoes and
also gathered 1,150 pounds additional which were fed to hogs.
These potatoes were grown on a fraction over one-third of an
acre and were sold on the local market at $1,00 per hundred
a
pounds.
At this price the returns from an acre would be $240.00 and
had they been kept until spring I could have sold them both on the
market or for seed at $3.00 per hundred.
I regard the land in the vicinity of Ontario as excellent po
tato soil and under proper care will yield large returns.
Yours very truly,
W. S, REES.
(Signed)
Further north some new homes have
been erected and it is the prediction
that the property known as "The
Hill" will undoubtedly become the
residence section. North of the city
many new additions have been laid
out and during the coming year
many new Improvements may be ex
pected.
A new addition termed Riverside
has been platted by the Ontario Land
& Townsite company. This addition
has been leveled, cement sidewalks
put down, and 800 shade trees
planted. A pumping plant has been
installed to supply parks laid out
with fountains and driveways.
