"Where Once the Dust Blew Now Great Gardens Grow," Kansas City Star

"Where Once the Dust Blew Now Great Gardens Grow," Kansas City Star
Creator: Evans, Don
Date: September 15, 1946
This newspaper article discusses how irrigation helped reverse the effects of the severe drought and Dust Bowl of the 1930s. The author tells the story of A. J. "Bunny" Worm, a farmer from Ulysses, Kansas, who has planted bumper crops of onions, cantaloupes, and honeydew melons on irrigated land. Because of his great success, other fruit and vegetable farms have cropped up in Grant, Stevens, and Stanton counties. The article includes images of Worm's irrigation system and his crops.
