how certain farmera In California are

acre of ground and In some Instances
from a fraction of an acre. Following
Is an extract from the article:
"Sometimes a lot will be planted ex-
riimlvplv to some one vegetable or to

carefully planned and in this way the
productiveness of the soil Is utilized
to the greatest degree.
