Great Gardening Book: Four-Season Harvest

June 28th, 2008

I’ve been slowly reading through Four-Season Harvest: Organic Vegetables from Your Home Garden All Year Long. I’ve always wanted to put in a cold frame to grow some spinach & other greens through the winter, and this book helps explain the intricacies of winter gardening. Eliot goes into great detail about which winter crops to grow in the northern climates. He includes a lot of information about specific cultivars of plants and their favored growing conditions. I’m interested to see what I can grow this winter. I’m not going to install a greenhouse quite yet, but I am going to build a cold-frame. MMM, I can almost taste the sweet carrots & spinach already. If you’re interested in growing things throughout the winter give this book a read. Even if you don’t want to participate in winter gardening, it’s a great resource for types of heirloom plants and their best growing conditions.
