Excerpt from The Journal of Horticulture, Cottage Gardener, and Country Gentlemen, Vol. 25: A Chronicle of the Homestead, Poultry-Yard, Apiary, and Dovecote; July 3 December 25, 1873
There is one obstacle in the way of these pursuits being more freely and generally entered on. It is true it is only sentimental, but is yet in a certain degree formidable. We have the best authority as to one who could not dig, and to beg was ashamed; and there is not the slightest doubt, that in the matter of fruit, there are many who cannot give, and. To sell they are ashamed; but strong minded, clear-headed, and good-hearted men are break ing down such paltry barriers, and indeed it is time they did, and save the tens of fruit, that cannot be given, from rotting in the stores. There is nothing strained or ima ginative here, but it is all hard and veritable fact; yet in saying this it is as freely admitted that there are many who can give and do give, many who have both the means and the will to do so. All honour to such men, and may their numbers increase; but of those who have the means to give or sell, and where selfishness forbids the one and pride the other, the sooner they are educated to a better and more reasonable course of action the better. Nothing can be more proper and legitimate, more reason able and right, than that a clergyman, for instance, should turn to the best account the means at his disposal - that he should, if his inclination disposed him. Eke out his, in many cases, scanty income by selling his surplus fruit. Many a one of his class would find a house of Grapes a source of profit and congenial occupation to himself, and would also confer a favour on his district by bringing this delicious home-grown fruit within the reach of his neighbours.
