"The first thing to do about starting an orchard is to plan for it," Jacob Biggle, the author of this handy little book, advises. "Put on your thinking-cap, study into the matter, and do not jump in the dark. A slow start is much better than a poor start. 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." Once you've followed Harriet's advice and determined the site for your orchard, the next task is to decide what kinds of trees to plant in it and learn how to care for them season after season. The Biggle Orchard Book includes everything you need to know about nearly every fruit tree under the sun, and also those that produce nuts. It includes instructions on: How to prune newly set trees When to pick fruit How to pack fruit for the farmer's market And much more! Written for backyard farmers, especially those interested in timeless orcharding techniques, The Biggle Orchard Book is an essential and charming addition to the home library.
