where failure is loo uftcu the result.
The I'ltcliiblt' ;uiW"ii.
Kvery pnrt of tho f irm has its jieculiar
value, hut wo place tho highest estimate
tipon tho vegetnMo yarde.n, especially no
in proportion to its sue nnd tho nuiount of
money nnd labor invested in it. It is most
important because it produces most, most
nutriment, most money, most profit, most
of everything for which tho farmer labors.
It in in truth tho most productive part of n
well nrrnngfd farm. It i nothing strange
for n good vegetable garden near n city,
carried on by a small family, to support
the family nnd yield $1000 a year clear
profit. Let any ono calculate the profit of
n good garden from a single bed sowed to
beet, onions, parsnips, or planted with
tomatoes or cubtmges, or any other pro
ductive vegetable nnd ho will seo nt once
how great ii tho profit. Tho ainoutU of
fiwd thus produced on a sumll piece of
ground is very great. And on a farm it
can bo done nl odd jobs, in moments thai
would otherwise bo idle, by old people,
children nnd women, whose Itilmr in the
garden would bo ti real benefit to them,
no as not to interfere with the labors of
tho farm. As n general rule the products
of n vegetnllo garden on a farm may be
considered us u clear gain.
It is important because the food raised
in n garden id not second to tiny raised
elsewhere ; is, we believe, better on the
whole, than bread tuid meat, at any rate,
should ho largely mixed w ith the bread
nnd meat of our meals. Hread nnd meat
nlone nre loo nutritious tax too 'severely
the powers if the s'.omach. What we
mean by too nutritious, is, '.hat they con
tain too much nutriment for tho bulk, the
nutriment is too concentrated. The most
of tho vegetables of the 'garden are less
nutritious. Turnips, tomatoes, potatoes,
cabbages, sipiahes.nnd even onions, beets
nnd parsnips are less nutritious than bread
nnd meat of the same bully or weight.
They are agreeable to the stomach and
make its work easy. IV w people are, or
ever would be troubled with thedispcpiu,
weak or bad stomachs, or bowel com
plaints tvhoso food is largely composed
of garden vegetables properly cooked.
We think a tomatoe, potato, beet or turnip,
better than n pill or a vomit for the health,
hence, the veetlable mii'dou diminishes
the doctors bill, the bread bill, tho meat
bill and rn 'reasei the health, strength and
vivacity of spirits.
The vegetable garden is important be
cause it ndds to the beauty and hence
value of tho farm, makes it look and feel
more home-likv and comfortable, (ills the
cellar and larder with means of comfort.
It moreover cultivates the tastes and npv
tiles of the farmer and his family in the
l ight direction, and i-pites u cultivating
disposition in them. It has a reliuim;nud
informing tendency, is an evidence of in
telligence mid culture. As the traveller
