No one knows how much responsibility is going to be put upon individuals for raising their own produce. If home vegetable gardening is going to extend to include vast numbers of amateurs, I know of no more straightforward, practical and simple guide than this. No knowledge is taken for granted. The author starts from the beginning, discusses equipment, selection of location, planning the garden, selecting the seeds, preparing the soil, planting, transplanting, cultivating, and even storing the vegetables for later use. Diseases, pests, and so on, are treated. The last third of the book takes up each vegetable, and goes into specific details.
