Autos and Truck Farmers.
The Washington Herald
October 9, 1913
In the current issue of Farm and Fireside Thomas Greiner, editor of the gardening department, tells how the automobile is benefiting the truck gardener. Mr. Greiner is one of the best practical gardening experts in the United States. He says: "Up to a few years ago we used to think growing vegetables for for direct sale to consumers was inpracticable and out of the question where more than five or six miles were between grower and buyer. But distance now cuts much less a figure than formerly. Carrying your produce on a modern auto-truck, you can reach your customer twenty miles from your place in little over an hour's time. You can do your peddling in less time then when you drove a horse and wagon, do not have to stop for feeding and resting your horses, and will get home in little over an hour after you have disposed of your load."
