Excerpt from page 1
Seed companies are well aware of the itchiness that gardeners develop as snowdrifts deepen and they time delivery of their catalogs to coincide with the onset of cabin fever. A common reaction to the glossy pictures and glowing praises of each new variety is to overreact and order more seeds than the entire neighborhood could use. To avoid this plan your garden carefully.
Decide on the size garden you want. The information contained in this bulletin can be applied to any size area.
Next determine what vegetables your family enjoys. If just one person enjoys rutabagas does it make sense to plant an entire row of them?
Also consider the local climate. Eggplant may be a great delicacy but are chances for success with this vegetable good in an area with a short growing season?
