and Pnjo^d PloU Strawberries know no equal as a crop for big profits from small areas. An over-size family garden or profit plot will provide not only all the delights of a family supply of strawberries but will provide a very real addition to the family income. In such a project every member of the family, young and old, can help. In such a project spare time can be used with gain to health and bank account. In such a project good training can be provided for boys and girls, the rewards from their work and responsibility in growing and selling berries will provjde encouragement to see it through. Easy to sell! Good strawberries have an eye appeal and a tastiness which attract the buyer. An ad in yout local paper, a short spot on the local radio station, a sign along the road, or maybe just a word spread among a few friends will nearly always bring buyers to take all the berries you have to sell—and at good prices. Siraurbemes—the quickest to produce of any fruit crop; the first to bear in any crop year. SirajArbexries—fresh from the vines, with sugar, in shortcake, in ice cream, as preserves, in the home freezer or rented locker. StraiArberries—di budget aid. Why spend money for lesser desserts in berry time?

Carroll Co., Md., Feb. 14, 1951. "I only have a small piece of land. But off our 750 plants I sold over $150.00 worth of the finest berries besides what I used for the family which was quite a lot, as I love them. Thanks." ^x^t^W. Westmoreland Co., Pa., March 16, 1951. "I have grown Premier ever since 1942; have never missed a crop. I plant around 500 plants in rows 42 in. apart and let them spread out about 18-20 in. wide. Three years ago this summer I had 736 qts. from a bed of this kind." Chas. Lowmaster. New Haven Co., Conn., Sept. 22, 1952. "My Gem plants have done excellent, and show better than the others. Many people have remarked about the fine looking plants I have, and I have passed your name to them." j. r. Cruickshank. Auglaize Co., Ohio, March 12, 1951. "Just a line to let you know that I was very much pleased with the 50 Premier strawberry plants which I pur- chased from you in the spring of 1949. The plants were very vigorous and everyone of them grew. I picked over 100 quarts of the finest quality berries I have ever seen from these 50 plants last spring." William F. Strohm. Kane Co., 111., Aug. 30, 1951. "We sold 3175 quarts of berries this spring. It seems like every year we plant more yet we never can supply the demand." Mrs. Guy Hall. Hennepin Co., Minn., Jan. 9, 1951. "I wish to congratulate you on printing a perfect nursery cata- log. You tell the good qualities of your nursery plants and also the faults if they have any. Other nurseries invariably avoid this." Grant Martin.
