dc.description.abstract <p>Vegetables are healthful. Mineral salts present In vegetables are especially Important; iron, calcium and phosphorus are present In sufficient quantities for the body's needs. Vegetables add bulk to the diet and furnish vitamins which are essential to the growth and health of the body.</p> <p>A well planned and or cared for garden will produce enough vegetables to supply the family during the growing season, and enough may be raised In excess for storing for winter use. Beets, carrots, turnips, parsnips, potatoes, late cabbage, etc., can be stored successfully. Fresh vegetables from the home garden are much more palatable than vegetables which have been shipped long distances or displayed for several days in the retail grocery window. The only means or securing the 1best peas, sweet corn, beans and asparagus Is to grow them at home, since they deteriorate rapidly after gathering. Many vegetables lose their characteristic flavor unless used within a few hours after gathering.</p>
