The close relation with a fruit tree and its home-production, "is one of the sacred associations" for Bailey in this chapter. This chapter also gives a brief overview of the history of late 19th-century American pomology, or the study of fruit gardening, citing authors Patrick Berry and Charles Downing who celebrated this same ideal, specifically the "sacred associations" with pear and apple trees.
