More Garden Talk
Some of the prettiest lawns and finest vegetable gardens in
Marshfield are being planted and cultivated along South Tenth
Street, Southwest Boulevard, California Avenue and other streets
of First Addition to Marshfield. The fertile soil and warm slopes
of this addition arc especially adapted to quick and vigorous
growth. )oor yards that were leveled and seeded this spring are
now green. Strawberries are in full bloom. Other garden vege
tables are doing equally well.
Nothing adds so much to the attractiveness of a residence
district as do well kept lawns, and nothing is quite so satisfactory
as a flourishing vegetable garden.
A. neighborhood of home-owners is in all ways the best neigh
borhood to live in. First Addition is such a neighborhood.
Call and get a plat showing some of the choice building sites
that can be bought for $300 on terms to suit you. This is the ad
dition where graded streets and a. water system are already provided.
