Dorothy Larke, Dorothy Brown, Ryvers Farm, three-quarters
Onion Seeds. They're not big-drum sticks. They're not knobkerries. If you know your onions, you've probably recognised them already for they're leek seeds growing at Ryvers Farm, Langley, Bucks. Dorothy Brown, 20 and Dorothy Larke, 21, are checking the seed pods, and each pod contains an average of three seeds. There are three-quarters of an acre of the plants. Three times 2000 is 6,000. Now how many square feet are there in an acre-well, you're looking at a lot of leeks-to-be. September 1949 P004460
