DELICIOUS HOME MADE FOOD PRODUCTS FROM OUR HOME GROWN FRUITS AND VEGETABLES JELLIES, JAMS, MARMALADES, VEGETABLES, PICKLES AND FRUITS [[/preprinted]] FOR PRIZE CONTEST. In starting a garden remember this. Proper preparation of the soil, proper fertilization, careful selection of seeds, intensive cultivation. The [[underline]]most important[[/underline]] is the selection of [[underline]]seeds.[[/underline]] It costs just as much to prepare ground for poor seeds as it does for goods ones. A reliable seedsman never charges more than his seeds are worth. [[underline]]Never try[[/underline]] to economize on seeds. Good seeds are worth all they cost. Poor seeds are not worth anything. Get a catalogue from a reliable nurseryman who stakes his reputation on his output, look over the list carefully, accept his advice and you cannot go wrong. We have used Burpee's seeds for over twelve years and have secured our best results in trying their new varieties. We still consider Golden Bantum corn, Brittle wax beans, Blue Bantum peas, Fordhook bush limas the best of their kinds. Other vegetable and flower seeds are the best obtainable. Burpee has helped the grower more than any other seedsman in introducing new varieties. They are leaders today in their line. Visitors to our vegetable and flower gardens are always enthusiastic in their admiration of the results we obtain. Go thou and do likewise. Visitors are always welcome to our [[underline]]gardens[[/underline]]. EDGEWOOD FARM MONT VERNON, N.H. [[signed]] (Miss) Melita Crawley [[/signed]]
