Excerpt from Vegetable Gardening: A Manual on the Growing of Vegetables, for Home Use and Marketing
This book was prepared primarily for the School of Agriculture of the University of Minnesota, where it has been used as a textbook since it was first published. It is the result of the development of the system of teaching at this school and is intended for students of the high school grade. In this the ninth edition a few changes have been made to bring it up-to-date in the matter of methods of culture and varieties recommended.
In previous editions I have taken pleasure, as I do now, in acknowledging the assistance which I have received in many ways in preparing the manuscript for the first edition of this book from Prof. Harry Snyder, the late Dr. Otto Lugger, the late Major A. G. Wilcox, and my former assistant, Prof. R. S. Mackintosh, now Professor of Horticulture at Auburn, Alabama, In preparing this edition, I have helped by Mr. A. R. Kohler, Assistant in Horticulture.
