Excerpt from Vegetable Growing It has been the aim of the author in preparing this work to consider the principles involved in vegetable production and at the same time to furnish sufficient detailed information to show definitely the connection between principles and practice. The book has been written primarily as a text, so arranged and developed as to meet the needs of collegiate undergraduate students in general courses in horticulture. In following out this plan the work under consideration treats: First, the problems involved in the production of a supply of vegetables for the home table. Second, the production on a field scale of those vegetable crops that are generally grown as such. Since the work treats the subject from the stand-point of the production of vegetables for home use, it should prove of value to anyone interested in this phase of gardening. Likewise, it should be of equal value to farmers and others who are planning or who are engaged in the culture of those vegetables which are grown as field crops, such as tomato, sweet corn, peas, cabbage, cucumber, beans, sugar beets, and celery. The classification of vegetables followed in this text is based upon seasonal requirements. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
