Nowadays there are many kinds of loose-leaf account books, and market growers who do not wish to carry a lot of "dead" material about in their pockets would do well to invest in some of the loose-leaf books. Pages that are already out of date may be taken out from time to time and placed in a cover for reference if necessary, and "refills" of fresh paper of the proper size are always obtainable. This kind of pocket account book takes up but little space, and one need not carry about day after day a book containing records twelve months or more old.

When fruits, plants and flowers, and vegetables are grown in sufficiently large quantities for sale, it would be wise to keep a special market book for each group. This will afterwards save trouble in analysing the accounts.
