"With some, the home vegetable garden is a hobby; with others, especially in these days of high prices, a great help. There are many in both classes whose experience in gardening has been restricted within very narrow bounds, and whose present spare time for gardening is limited. It is as 'first aid' to such persons, who want to do practical, efficient gardening, and do it with the least possible fuss and loss of time, that this book is written."
