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.
Suggestions for improvement? It would have been great to see some longer-term fruits featured, such as fruit trees.
I would have given 5/5 stars but I felt some things should have been explained more in depth. There were things that I had to google such as 'compost tea'. I was also hoping for more pest control techniques with ordinary household items, but the author only explained chemical/organic pesticides.
The book is easy to read, covers many of the plants you might want to try and offers many tips that will help gardeners get the most out of their plot of land, whether it's in Fort McMurray or Windsor.
Only thing that would be better than the Guide To Canadian Vegetable Gardening would be one focused specifically on southern Ontario, but that would be a bit too much to ask!
