Description
"The first thing to do about starting an orchard is to plan for it," advises Jacob Biggle in this handy little book from 1906. "Harriet says that an orchard set in the right place, at the right time and of the right varieties, is worth just eleven times more than a hit-or-miss orchard. Where she secured the data for such exact figures, I do not know; but I am willing to admit that she is about right in this statement." Biggle's simple, practical instruction for growing a wide variety of fruit and nut trees includes how to prune newly set trees, when to pick fruit, and how to pack fruit for the farmer's market. The book is from Jacob and Harriet Biggle's classic series of well-illustrated farm books, first published at the turn of the 20th century and prized ever since for their practical tips and sage advice. Their humane instructions and warmly amusing maxims are timeless, particularly for those who have decided to start their own small farms.
