Containing no adver tising, the book is a thoroughgoing manual on successful gardening in all phases from planting to har vesting and storing. As one way of coping with the shortage of farm help, Mr. Toney is reminding farmers that a lot of slow, tiresome hoeing can be avoided by planting such vegeta bles as potatoes, turnips, beets, beans, and peas in long rows in the same fields with the farm's regular row crops, so that they can be cultivated along with the main crops In the same way.
