Not illustrated. 1919 edition. Excerpt: ...Spinach: Actually this is not spinach at all. nor even related botanically to the real spinach tribe; but that is no reason for not calling it spinach. Things work this way in the vegetable garden. The one great, advantage that it. has over true spinach is its endurance of extreme heat--which true spinach cannot stand without. running to set-d--hence it can be used over a long period: the entire season if started early. It grows into rt bushy plant. spreading sometimes to zi diameter of three feet. or more, with main braiiches resting almost or quite on the ground.

In this st-ate. they are known as "green shelled beans." Try t-hem, if you never have. Personally I prefer polo beans always, and never use the bush kinds. They are less liable to fungous troubles, through the elevation of the vines, and the consequent. free circulation of air and sunlight through and around them; and they are infinitely easier to gather, as well as clean when gathered. The little trouble of placing the poles is very poor argument against pole beans, to my mind--and it is the only one. Sow beans, both lima and kidney. in hills, around the pole which is to support them. That is, level off a space of earth about 18 inches in diameter, set. the pole in the middle, and plant about. five to seven beans around it at a distance from it of 5 inches.
