Garden Vegetables (Classic Reprint)

€ 37.89

Excerpt from Garden Vegetables

It seems as if enough had already been said and written urging every one to have a vegetable garden; but observation will show that not one family in ten does have a garden that is entitled to be called such in every sense of the word. I wish it distinctly understood at the outset that 1 shall speak of garden vegetables as adapted by their superior culinary qualities for the family table, putting aside, for a moment, the question of the yield, provided the vegetables mentioned are good average croppers; or, in other words, I shall speak of garden vegetables as entirely distinct and separate from those vegetables which are grown to sell. I make this emphatic distinction between vegetables grown for the table and those raised to sell, for the reason that where there is no kitchen garden, and it is the custom to take vegetables for the table (it is not always that this is done, and when it is not the family go without) from farm or market garden crops, as a rule the table is very poorly supplied; for the moment a crop is scarce and brings a good price in the market it is immediately shut off from the raiser`s table. But have a separate garden for your table, and do not allow any vegetables whatever to be sold from it, and you will find that you can enjoy green peas the 17th of June, and celery and cauliflowers at Thanksgiving.

A garden containing one acre, and even less space, will amply supply ten persons with all the luxuries of the season; therefore let us take one acre as a basis for the garden we will now consider. Each family can easily plan the size of the garden suited to its needs, by taking this estimate for ten persons as a basis, and planting more or less as they may require.

In order to cultivate vegetables in a satisfactory way, proper attention must be given to the preparation of the soil. Having selected the location, the first step is to see that the ground is properly drained, so that all surplus and stagnant water which may accumulate can pass away freely.
