Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Condon's Common Sense Culture Book And Canning Guide


The front and back covers of the pamphlet are identical, both with a beige background and two thin black lines that border the text, which reads Condon's Common Sense Culture Book And Canning Guide, By Condon Bros., Seedsmen, Rock River Valley Seed Farm, Rockford, Illinois, U.S.A. The inside front cover includes an Introductory, which indicates that the purpose of the pamphlet is to help customers grow more bountiful crops, among other goals. Short sections focus on individual vegetable and fruit crops, like strawberries, grapes, cauliflower, peas, peppers and squash. Various charts are included (When And What To Spray, When To Plant Your Vegetables, Canning Timetables). A few black and white photographs also appear.
