Winter Gardening in the Maritime Northwest (EPUB)

Cool-Season Crops for the Year-Round Gardener - Fifth Edition

by Binda Colebrook



Many gardeners can supply a significant amount of their own food during the plentiful summer harvest. But the key to substantial savings on your food bill is putting fresh, homegrown produce on your table every month of the year. And in the mild, forgiving climate of the maritime Pacific Northwest, it can be easier than you might think.

In Winter Gardening in the Maritime Northwest, Binda Colebrook provides a complete guide to cool-season crops and how to raise them. Gardeners from Southeastern Alaska to southern Oregon will benefit from her clear, practical advice on:

  • Selecting and preparing the ideal winter gardening site
  • Maximizing production and minimizing pests with cloches, cold frames, mulches and companion planting
  • Choosing the best strains and hardiest varieties for a year-round growing season.

An excellent companion volume to The Winter Harvest Cookbook, this revised and updated edition of the classic text will have you serving up fabulous alternatives to bland, expensive and tasteless imported supermarket vegetables in no time. Whether your favorite meals include hearty roots or succulent greens, Winter Gardening in the Maritime Northwest will help you maximize your food production year-round.
