How Big Are Your Onions?

At the turn of the century, most people still grew their own vegetables because it was a cost efficient way to feed themselves.  They could earn some extra cash by setting up markets on the outskirts of cities and sell their produce to the city folk.  Gardeners planted to get the most vegetables per square foot while creating an aesthetically pleasing view.  Wooden, rectangular beds were separated by brick or gravel paths.  The most popular vegetables were cabbage, onions, potatoes, turnips, carrots, peas, cucumber, and melon.
