Format: Hardcover
Living in the Pacific Northwest, I've got some nerve reviewing a book about frost. Yes, we do have frost here, but it isn't the problem here that it is in northern New York State where Philip Harnden lives.
So, for all the gardeners in the colder regions of the US and Canada, here is a really useful book that explains how to outwit the weather and extend the spring and fall seasons. The writer is concerned primarily with the kitchen garden, mostly vegetables. You won't find much about flowers in here, although much of the advice would apply to most plants. What you WILL find is ways that determined gardeners even in New Hampshire manage to harvest at least a few vegetables all winter long. Even in Maine one couple enjoys a "four season harvest". An added pleasure in this book is the well-selected photography of plants and gardens in frosty weather.
If frost is a problem in your garden you'll enjoy reading this practical and down-to-earth book. This writer has been there, done that when it comes to cold climate gardening. The book is well-researched, well-written and contains a goodly number of resources for further exploration.
