Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first frost used to be the end of the vegetable gardening season — but not anymore! In The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener, Nova Scotia-based gardener and writer Niki Jabbour shares her secrets for growing food during every month of the year. Her season-defying techniques, developed in her own home garden where short summers and low levels of winter sunlight create the ultimate challenge, are doable, affordable, and rewarding for gardeners in any location where frost has traditionally ended the growing season.

Jabbour explains how to make every month a vegetable-gardening month. She provides in-depth instruction for all of her time-tested techniques, including selecting the best varieties for each season, mastering the art of succession planting, and maximizing the use of space throughout the year to increase production. She also offers complete instructions for making affordable protective structures that keep vegetables viable and delicious throughout the colder months. 

What could be more amazing than harvesting fresh greens in February? Jabbours proven, accessible methods make this dream possible for food gardeners everywhere.

Synopsis:

Garden-Fresh Food Summer, Winter, and Every Time in Between

Make every month a vegetable gardening month with Niki Jabbour's proven techniques for year-round growing and harvesting. Begin by planting your vegetables during the seasons they prefer — tomatoes and peppers need summer sun and heat; asparagus and radishes thrive in cooler weather; and kale, lettuce, and scallions tolerate frost and come alive under winter sunshine. Apply Niki's intensive gardening methods and some affordable and easy-to-assemble protective structures, and your vegetable garden will reward you with fresh, delicious produce even on short, cold winter days.
