This book is my first introduction to Jody Aliesan, and what an excellent way to meet her work. Powerful writing that's easy to apprehend, interlaces essay, story, poetry. I deeply appreciate her tactful, artful, personal, and relevant discussions on the subjects of truth and justice. File this book under "necessary reading for the 21st century."

Four-Season Harvest: How to Harvest Fresh Organic Vegetables from Your Home Garden All Year Long by Eliot Coleman
Four-Season Harvest: How to Harvest Fresh Organic Vegetables from Your Home Garden All Year Long

I've had this book for over six years and it's still one of my top-shelfers. Full of useful, easy-to-understand information, perfect for the beginner to try in the garden immediately.

What I like best: fun stories, clear language, and helpful pictures, tips for planning and problem-solving, and encouragement to use (and reuse) materials at-hand.

This is the book that got us started growing our own vegetables successfully at home. Especially appreciate the information for winter vegetable growing.

We used the info and pictures in this book to build several of our own cold frames, each of which have produced years of yummy fruits, veggies, and flowers (using mostly materials we had saved 'behind the shed').
