Pages of History: Bulb growing suggested for county future

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, December 1940.

Bulb growing as an adjunct to the regular farm activity for ranchers in Del Norte County is being actively advocated by interested Crescent City businessmen. With the world supply of tulips and other bulbs cut off by the conquest of Holland, there is an acute shortage of certain bulbs, it was stated.

Del Norte County is particularly suited to the growing of bulbs for the market, and with highly successful ventures under way in Oregon in similar climate and soil, it was anticipated that bulbs may one day be a leading Del Norte industry.
