Watermelons and Podiatry

We hope your garden grows as well as Mart Carden’s did.  If it does not, perhaps you may wish to follow his technique, as reported in the May 11, 1900 Skidmore Standard:

So Do We Too.
Spring has come.  Mart Carden has laid aside his shoes and made his annual debut as champion barefooted watermelon raiser of this neighborhood.  When Mart has given his feet a month’s tanning he will be using them as a razor strop again.  Mart could give lots of people pointers on the care of feet.  He does all kinds of farming and even trims hedge in his bare feet.  As we have intimated, Mart is an expert with watermelons, and we hope to hear some good things from his patch this summer. – Quitman Record.
