“The Vegetable Garden” is a concise but comprehensive guide to setting up and managing a vegetable garden, with chapters on planning, construction, planting and transplanting, and much more. This easy-to-follow guide is ideal for those with little previous experience, and is not to be missed by those with an interest in self-sustainability. Contents include: “Garden Plot”, “Planning for the Garden”, “General Rules for Care of Vegetables”, “Preparing for Early Crops”, “Special Rules for Potatoes”, “Laying off and Fertilizing The Garden: transplanting and Seeding in the Open”, “Special Rules for Strong Flavoured Vegetables, such as Cabbage, Turnips, Onions, Cauliflower, etc.”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on vegetarianism.
