Overview

For some, the home vegetable garden is a hobby, for others especially in these days of high prices, a great help. There are many in both cases whose experience in gardening has been restricted within very narrow bounds, and whose present spare time for gardening is limited. It is as a "first aid" to such persons, who want to do practical, efficient gardening, and do it with the least possible fuss and loss of time, that this book is written.

In my own experience I have found that garden books, while seldom lacking in information, often do not present it in the clearest possible way. In Home Vegetable Gardening I have aimed to give you first of all practical information, and in addition to that, make it comprehensive, yet simple and concise.

Home Vegetable Gardening will guide you every step of the way with detailed instructions for everything from garden planning and preparing to planting, protecting, and harvesting.
