Publisher Comments:

If you love the joys of eating home-garden vegetables but always thought those joys had to stop at the end of summer, this book is for you. Eliot Coleman introduces the surprising fact that most of the United States has more winter sunshine than the south of France. He shows how North American gardeners can successfully use that sun to raise a wide variety of traditional winter vegetables in backyard cold frames and plastic covered tunnel greenhouses without supplementary heat. Coleman expands upon his own experiences with new ideas learned on a winter-vegetable pilgrimage across the ocean to the acknowledged kingdom of vegetable cuisine, the southern part of France, which lies on the 44th parallel, the same latitude as his farm in Maine.

This story of sunshine, weather patterns, old limitations and expectations, and new realities is delightfully innovative in the best gardening tradition. Four-Season Harvest will have you feasting on fresh produce from your garden all through the winter.

Review:

"Four-Season Harvest is a magnificent work. It's enticing, inspiring, sensible, and it opens a whole new world for the home gardener." Peter Fossel, Country Journal

Synopsis:

About the Author

Eliot Coleman is one of America's leading practitioners of organic gardening and farming. He has pioneered a "plant-positive" approach to horticulture that surpasses chemical-dependent agriculture in every way — producing vegetables that are exceptionally nutritious, delicious, and healthy. His Chelsea Green books include The New Organic Grower and Four-Season Harvest. With his wife Barbara Damrosch he farms in Harborside, Maine, on land that was part of the homestead of Helen and Scott Nearing

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').
