Grow Your Own

Description

Provides basic instructions for planting a home vegetable garden. "Sets forth, in light vein, the essentials of good gardening selection of the site, preparation of the soil, how to lay out a garden, planting, transplanting, cultivating, weed and pest control, and proper watering. A "dream" sequence shows, by stop motion photography, how plants grow. The picture closes with a series of humorous "DON'TS" designed to bring home, through exaggeration, the many pitfalls that might mar the success of an amateur gardener" (Motion Pictures of the United States Department of Agriculture, 1945, 30-31).
