Garden-Fresh Food Summer, Winter, and Every Time in Between
Make every month a vegetable gardening month with Niki Jabbour's proven techniques for year-round growing and harvesting. Begin by planting your vegetables during the seasons they prefer -- tomatoes and peppers need summer sun and heat; asparagus and radishes thrive in cooler weather; and kale, lettuce, and scallions tolerate frost and come alive under winter sunshine. Apply Niki's intensive gardening methods and some affordable and easy-to-assemble protective structures, and your vegetable garden will reward you with fresh, delicious produce even on short, cold winter days.
Niki Jabbour is a food gardener and garden writer who lives near Halifax, Nova Scotia. Her articles have appeared in Canadian Gardening, Garden Making, Gardens East, The Heirloom Gardener, and other publications. She is the host of The Weekend Gardener, a call-in radio show that airs throughout the Maritime provinces on News 95.7 FM and www.news957.com, and she blogs at www.yearroundveggiegardener.blogspot.com. Her garden boasts over 40 heirloom vegetables and herbs that keep her family eating fresh food year-round.
Good book. Lots of useful information for beginners but I found it really repetitive and I bet it could have been done in a 3rd of the pages. But the information in it is good.Published 21 days ago by Samuel
