“Early Vegetables” is a 1917 guide to growing vegetables by H. H. Thomas, focusing on their cultivation out of season in the early months of the year. Although the amateur often regards such growing to be outside of their ability and only achievable by experienced market gardeners, this volume offers the reader simple, beginner-friendly instructions on how early vegetables can be produced by the novice and with minimal extra equipment. Contents include: “Making A Start”, “Asparagus”, “Broad Beans”, “French Beans”, “Beetroot”, “Brussels Sprouts”, “Cabbage”, “Carrot”, “Cauliflower”, “Chicory”, “Cucumber”, “Lettuce”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of gardening.
