Description
"The only just and true way for an honorable and manly man is to grow them, and let everybody about the place have all he can eat," writes Jacob Biggle about berries in this book, first published in 1894. If you hate plunking down what seems like a king's ransom every time you buy a quart of berries at the local farmer's market, and if you've got a little land to spare, it might be time to grow your own. While the book's emphasis is on more common fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, currants, gooseberries, and grapes, there is also information on dewberries, juneberries, loganberries, mulberries, and mayberries. Biggle explains how to keep your berry patch pruned, cleaned, cultivated, and in good order; how to protect your plants from fungus and insect damage; and the best ways to pick, pack, and market your berries—if you're willing to part with them. 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.
