In deciding upon the site for the home
vegetable garden it is well to dispose once
and for all of the old idea that the garden
"patch" must be an ugly spot in the home
surroundings. If thoughtfully planned,
carefully planted and thoroughly cared for,
it may be made a beautiful and harmonious
feature of the general scheme, lending a
touch of a comfortable home that no
shrubs, borders, or flower beds can ever

With this fact in mind we will not feel restricted to any part of the
premises merely because it is out of sight behind the barn or garage.
In the average moderate-sized place there will not be much choice as to
land. It will be necessary to take what is to be had and then do the
very best that can be done with it. But there will probably be a good
deal of choice as to, first, exposure, and second, convenience. Other
things being equal, select a spot near at hand, easy to access. It may
seem that a difference of only a few hundred yards will mean nothing,
but if one is depending largely upon spare moments for working in and
for watching the garden--and in the growing of many vegetables the
latter is almost as important as the former--this matter of convenient
access will be of much greater importance than is likely to be at first
recognized. Not until you have had to make a dozen time-wasting trips
for forgotten seeds or tools, or gotten your feet soaking wet by going
out through the dew-drenched grass, will you realize fully what this
may mean.
