251. Successful Fern Growing

A woman who has had her refrigerator placed
on the porch has a long drain pipe to carry off the melted ice, and this

is made to flow right into a large bed of ferns. The cold water in no way

destroys the plants, in fact, they can endure the coldest water, and last

year her ferns grew to an enormous size all due to the daily supply of

water from the refrigerator.
