PREFACE
Majority of Indians prefer vegetarian foods, and therefore, vegetables have very important place in their daily diet. Regular availability of vegetables will definitely help in making diets balanced. Kitchen gardens are one of the best sources of getting vegetables regularly and that too high prices vegetables which are raised in a small piece of land attached to the house. I attempted in this book to present some guidelines in main six parts for establishing kitchen garden and raising various vegetables of the choice. The first part given overall view, the second part provides points on planning of kitchen garden, the third part on clas sification of vegetables. For convenience, readers may get informa tion according to the group of vegetables mentioned in part four. To avoid repetition, plant protection measures against pests and dis eases have been discussed separately in part five and six, respec tively. Though, a few vegetables are not much suitable to grow in kitchen garden still information is included with the view that possibly some kitchen gardeners may prefer to grow such vegetables for one or the other reasons. Important queries, information in tabular forms and Glossary are given in the last. The book does not give any compulsion to kitchen gardeners to follow information in toto, but it will help in encouraging them by providing guidelines to start with. Kitchen gardeners may modify the information according to the existing edapho-climatic conditions. I am extremely grateful to various sources of adapting and com piling the matter. For more details Selected References may be consulted. Thanks are due to my wife, daughter and son who helped me in preparation of manuscript. Hope, this small book will prove a valuable guide to kitchen gardeners. JUNAGADH
