Suggestions for improvement? It would have been great to see some longer-term fruits featured, such as fruit trees.
Another significant feature is the When To Plant, Where To Plant, and How To Plant sections for everything from Asparagus to Watermelon. Care & Maintainance and Additional Information sections that round out the individual vegetable breakdowns are helpful to new and experienced gardeners alike.
An overall useful, educational, and fun read. Green is a serious gardener but doesn't take himself overly seriously and his primary piece of advice for us novice gardeners is have fun. I like that.
Yes, the author included kohlrabi in the vegetable section, but that's because they do grow nicely in Canada! And here in Québec, we see them alot now for sale in public markets, as they catch people's eyes. Really great to know we can actually grow them easily in our own garden!
There is also information on how to maximize your garden space, like growing cucumbers on stakes while putting salads under them. Or growing bush beans under tomatoes plant, etc. I only wish the section on controlling insects organically would have been bigger.
All in all, this book is an awesome resource for us Canadian home garderners.
