KIRKUS REVIEW

An expert with twenty five years experience in a state experimental station, and a gardener who writes from his gardening in his own family circle, are mellowly combined. He is broadminded enough to try anything, and his aims are purely practical ones. In fifteen pages of easy-to-read print he plans and prepares the garden. In the remaining hundred he covers two model gardens, 20 x 25 x 50 feet. Planting, cultivation with particular reference to each vegetable, small fruits, insect control, early crops, preparation and preserving of surplus for table and winter use, as well as chapters on herbs and flowers. Sweet potatoes are the only obvious omission, due, we suppose, to space requirements. Sweet corn is not advised either for model gardens. The instructions on both sweet corn and asparagus are uncommonly good, however. An excellent buy for anyone wanting a complete job on vegetables.
