Publisher Comments:

Grow Something to Eat Year-Round is a light, bright new gardening title with a big promise—it sets out to deliver home-grown food from the plot, pot, freezer, or pantry every day of the year. That’s easy enough in the summer, when kitchen gardens and allotments are awash with peas, beans, leafy greens, and soft fruit, but not so straightforward in midwinter, when the ground may be frozen solid. Success lies in the planning, and this book is written as a continuum, with sowing, planting, and growing advice for each month to keep the crops coming. There are also features on harvesting, storing, freezing, and preserving crops to enjoy later in the winter months and the early-spring gap when little is ready to harvest. Advice is given on winter polytunnel and greenhouse crops, and indoor seed sprouting, citrus plants, and herbs in pots to help bring fresh tastes to the table in winter. The result is a year-round manual for productive kitchen gardeners, with plenty of growing projects for raised beds and pots to allow smaller-scale gardeners to take part.

Synopsis:

From sowing and planting to growing and harvesting, "Backyard Harvest" covers storing, freezing, and preserving tips so that gardeners can enjoy their bounty into the winter months and throughout the early-spring gap when little is ready to harvest.
