No greater mistake can be made than to locate on a poor road. Good roads more than double the value of land for gardening purposes. Mud, ruts, stones and steep hills are enough to discourage the most plucky gardener; they greatly increase the cost of marketing; reduce the amount of produce that can be hauled to market by the teams and wagons at command; cause constant annoyance to team and teamster and make it difficult to deliver vegetables at the market or the railroad station in first-class condition. A hard, smooth, well-drained and comparatively level road makes marketing a pleasure instead of a burden. Larger wagons may be used with less wear and tear, the trips will consume less time and hence the teams will be available for more work on the farm, than where poor roads must be used.
