This is an age of the high cost of living. The fundamental cause being the increase of twenty per cent, in our population every decade, which far outstrips the increase in acres tilled. Therefore it behooves all who control any ground capable of being gardened to develop their resources, grow their own vegetables, small fruits, etc., supply their tables during summer with fresher and better products than are usually sold in markets and stores, and can or otherwise preserve some for winter use. There is no more healthful, interesting and profitable diversion than this when modern gardening methods are practiced and then those who garden are at least partially independent when “things are too high’priced.” ^To aid the impetus being given to the present “back to the land” movement, we have issued this “pocket edition Garden Guide” for inexperienced gardeners.
In this booklet of convenient pocket form — so that it may be taken right out in the garden — we have endeavored to give as concisely as possible correct cultural directions for the leading vegetables and flowers from seeds and answer in simple language many of the hundred and one questions that sometimes perplex the amateur gardener. The various topics while not exhaustive are treated in an up’tO’date manner and may be quickly found by referring to the index, on pages 2 and 3.
