Excerpt from Every Man His Own Gardener, or a Plain Treatise on the Cultivation of Every Requisite Vegetable in the Kitchen Garden, Alphabetically Arranged: With Direction for the Green and Hothouse, Vineyard, Nursery, &C
I commenced operations for Dr. Hosack, in new-york, by laying out his grounds. 0n making inquiries of those who followed the busi ness, relative to the usual time of putting some crops in the ground, the information I obtained, was, for a time, my guide. I was, however, firmly satisfied, that the appointed times oh served by my fellow-labourers, were based on uncertainty, and of course induced repeated failures and great disappointment for instance, with regard to raising, in continuation, a good crop of Spring Cauliﬂower, as well as some other vegetables. I perused several eminent authors on Gardening, and became thoroughly convinced that a most material deviation from their instruc tions must be adopted by the practical cultivator in this country, in order to crown his labours with success.
