Excerpt from Fruits for the Home Grounds

He who plants fruits is a friend of man. Whether he plants for profit in an orchard or for pleasure in a garden, he belongs to the world's producers. Small producers as well as large producers may take just pride in the fruit industry of our great country, for actually the farmer and the small landholder grow most of America's enormous crop of fruits. According to the Thirteenth Census, the value of all fruits produced in the United States in 1909 was $218,000,000, or one-third the value of the wheat crop; and more than one-half of this grand total, the census statistics show, comes from the fruit-gardens of country and city. We learn that 2,980,000 persons reported bearing trees of the apple alone in 1910. Of other tree fruits and of small fruits the number is, of course, much greater.

But the money-value of the produce of fruit-gardens cannot be fully shown in census figures. The supply of food thus produced for the millions of homes is enormous. In all the world, America has the greatest plenty. The plots of fruit planted on the farms and in the gardens of this country constitute a vast food-resource.

Is it wise to plant fruits which do not have as high food-value as cereals, starchy vegetables, and meats? Yes, even when the richer foods are in scanty supply, fruit plantations must be maintained, and new orchards, vineyards, and small-fruit plots must be set with due regard for the future, for fruits are a necessity as well as a luxury. The medical authorities of the country so call them. They tell us that fruits should form a part of the food regimen of every person. The working efficiency of the whole nation would suffer should there be a falling off in the supply of fruit.

In view of this necessity for fruit, no landholder is doing his duty by his land who does not grow fruit for his family's wants, and he is doing well by his country when he grows a surplus to sell to less fortunate neighbors.
