While the onion yield in this
section has been somewhat below
what was anticipated in many cases,
others instances have exceeded ex
pectations. One notable case is
that of C. H. Nobles, ,who has
about six or eight acres in onions.
From a small rilot of . land about
twelve feet square, nineteen crates
of onion were gathered, averaging,
sixty-two pounds per crate, and
the balance of the crop is said to
be just as good. While all onion,
growers have not been so fortunate,
many farms have given splendid
yield. .
