Cool Season Gardener

cooseagar

How would you like to serve your own carrots for Thanksgiving, or fresh-from-the-garden salad at the winter solstice? Or how about collards for Christmas, leeks on New Year's, and lovely red beets for Valentine's Day, all right from your own garden? You can, without much trouble, by practicing winter, or cool-season gardening.

Cool Season Gardener is longtime garden writer Bill Thorness's friendly guide to maintaining your garden year-round in mild maritime climates. He shows you how to keep the garden in production in the colder months, practice succession planning for sowing and transplanting, plant cover crops, and much more.

Season extension techniques are given full attention, with many techniques described for using floating row cover, raised beds, cloches, cold frames, hot caps--even polytunnels and greenhouses. The book includes step-by-step, illustrated DIY building projects to help you easily build your own cloches, cold frames, and trellises. It also shows and tells you how to make the most of recycled materials in the garden.
