Excerpt from Vegetable Gardening
The basis of successful vegetable cultivation lies in the thorough working and preparation of the soil along the lines best suited to its texture and composition, coupled with adequate manuring according to the requirements of particular soils and crops. Soils are very variable, and in order to obtain the best results it is essential that each cultivator should have at least an elementary knowledge of the type of soil with which he is dealing, so that he may work and manure the soil to the best advantage, with due regard both to economy and efficiency, and at the same time realise to the fullest possible extent its natural resources. This does not in any way imply the depletion of the soil. On the contrary, if the methods of cultivation and manuring are conceived along right lines and efficiently executed in practice, the soil fertility becomes gradually built up and permanently increased, and this should be one of the chief aims in all soil operations.
