Great practical guide, basics and history This book can be very useful for the small space gardener as it discusses at length, basics of gardening. Anywhere the book describes use of horses, logic would indicate that a tiller of varying sizes could be substituted. Crop rotation is also discussed, and multiple acres are not needed for this.I enjoyed the instructions on constructing a manure-driven hotbed.

(2) This publication was intended for a larger gardening operation where you own a tractor, disc, etc. (onions can be…

Great guide, great tips and help!!! This guide is like listening to your grandparents. It’s not a fast read. I’ ve spent 60 yrs growing my own dinner and almost everything I’ve read in it works for here in the Smoky Mtns for gardening. I had zero problems with my Kindle download. For free? Way to many complaints. I highly reccomend it. Old Geezer
