Productive Vegetable Growing

Excerpt from Productive Vegetable Growing The War has given a special impetus to vegetable production, and particularly to the planting of home gardens. The Substitution of vegetables for some of the more concentrated foods in the diet of civilians will release for the use of the American army and the Allies large quantities of cereals and meats. So far as these vegetables are the the products of home gardens, they will reduce the amount of transportation necessary to supply food to the American people, and thus assist in relieving the railroads in this time of congested traffic. There was never a time when home gardens were more important; yet in the present effort to increase vegetable production, there is likely to be large waste if energy and seeds by those previously unfamiliar with vegetable gardening, unless they have proper guidance. the special literature being published to meet this emergency is good in many respects, but much of it is fragmentary and leaves the reader without a firm grasp of fundamental principles of gardening. It is hoped that the present edition of Productive Vegetable Growing will supply this need, and be of material assistance to planters of "war Gardens."
