Publisher Comments:

Many gardeners can supply a significant amount of their own food during the plentiful summer harvest. But the key to substantial savings on your food bill is putting fresh, homegrown produce on your table every month of the year. And in the mild, forgiving climate of the maritime Pacific Northwest, it can be easier than you think.

In Winter Gardening in the Maritime Northwest, Binda Colebrook provides a complete guide to cool season crops and how to raise them. Gardeners from southeastern Alaska to southern Oregon will benefit from her clear, practical advice on:

  • Selecting and preparing the ideal winter gardening site
  • Maximizing production and minimizing pests with cloches, cold frames, mulches, and companion planting

  • Choosing the best strains and hardiest varieties for a year-round growing season

An excellent companion volume to The Winter Harvest Cookbook, this revised and updated edition of the classic text will have you serving up fabulous alternatives to bland, expensive, and tasteless imported supermarket vegetables in no time. Whether your favorite meals include hearty roots or succulent greens, Winter Gardening in the Maritime Northwest will help you maximize your food production year-round.

Binda Colebrook is a lifelong gardener who has extensive experience as a homesteader in western Washington. A widely recognized authority on raising cool season vegetables in the maritime Northwest, she has worked as a wetlands biologist and environmental interpreter. Now retired, she is developing her own property to maximize year-round food production, as well as restoring its native habitat.

Synopsis:

The definitive winter harvest guide for maritime Pacific Northwest gardeners, now in its 5th edition
