For most of us, the end of summer signals an end to our enjoyment of fresh homegrown produce and vegetables. In Four-Season Harvest, Eliot Coleman explains why it doesn’t have to be this way. He shows how we can successfully raise a wide variety of traditional winter vegetables in backyard cold frame and plastic-covered tunnel greenhouses without supplementary heat, throughout the winter, as he has done for years on his homestead in Main.
Included are some great ideas on composting, organic methods, planning and preparing, soil requirements, seeds, and planting and cultivating the outdoor garden, as well as a descriptive and detailed lesson on the construction and workings of cold frames, high tunnels and other greenhouse designs. This innovative well-written book will have you feasting on fresh produce from your garden all winter long.
