Excerpt from How to Grow Fruit Take the fruit trees away from the home place, town or country, and a great part of its attractiveness leaves it. This applies both to the points of beauty and usefulness - but the trees must be properly selected, planted right and well cared for. These - matters have not had enough attention in the past. Nowadays, however, people are coming to understand that orchards will not take care of themselves any more than will vegetable gardens. Varieties, and methods of culture as well, have been steadily improved. Then, too, people are using fruit in greater quantity, year by year, and are naturally led to ask themselves why should we buy what can just as well be raised at home?
