Overwhelmed by My Garden

At this time of year, Cam feels a little overwhelmed by the gardening chores ahead of him.

Mr. Digwell is the newest MOTHER EARTH NEWS comic on gardening, laced with a little humor on the side. This issue's comic: Tips for raising tomatoes.

First, the bad news: Shortly after MOTHER EARTH NEWS NO. 39 went to press, we received word that the producers of "Mr. Crabtree Crusades" had — for unexplained reasons of their own — discontinued the series on ecology and turned it into a kind of comic-strip guide to fishing in Great Britain. So, knowing full well that few (if any) of MOTHER's readers would be interested in learning how to pull pike out of the Thames, we began looking for a replacement. Which brings us to the good news: We've found yet another indomitable English cartoon character — also rendered by Mr. Crabtree's creators — who, for some time now, has been passing on valuable garden tips to readers of the London Daily Mirror. We think folks on this side of the Big Water will find his advice useful, too, so — here and henceforth — we shall proudly present: Mr. Digwell. This issue's comics: Tips for raising tomatoes.
