Publisher Comments:

The bible of vegetable gardening in the San Francisco Bay Area has been revised and updated! Packed with more than 400 pages of reliable information, Golden Gate Gardenin offers encyclopedic coverage of gardening principles and practices specific to the Bay Area and the Northern California coast. Author Pam Peirce explains strategies for growing common favorite vegetables and herbs, plus unusual ones that bring variety to the garden. She includes information on organizing a garden, dealing with pests, assessing a microclimate, cultivating fruit trees, gardening on a rooftop, harvesting the crop, and creating delicious gardener's dishes. This third edition also contains new or updated information on resources for specific seeds, tomato planting, organic gardening, and vegetables not included in previous editions, including amaranth, shell beans, Chinese broccoli, broccoli raab, Florence fennel, oca, okra, and quinoa. Charts, sidebars, maps, and online resources help make the vegetable gardening experience easier and more fun.

Review:

"For vegetable gardening in the Bay Area, Golden Gate Gardening is indispensable--if you buy one gardening book, this is the one."
Michael Pollan, author of 'In Defense of Food' and 'The Omnivore's Dilemma'

"We'll admit it--we're envious of gardeners who live in regions covered by this magnificent book . . . a Laurel's Kitchen for California mid-coastal gardeners."
HortIdeas

"Coastal California gardeners . . . can rejoice! Pam Peirce of the San Francisco League of Urban Gardeners has compiled her extensive knowledge of how things grow in this unique climate in Golden Gate Gardening."
Jeff Cox, Organic Gardening Magazine

“A tremendous amount of solid information about what you can grow in various microclimates, how to plan your garden, how and when to start seeds, how to evaluate and amend soil, and how to deal with weeds, pests, and diseases.”
Sunset

“Once her lessons are fully absorbed, it’s hard to 
imagine not mastering what once seemed so 
complicated... Who needs Golden Gate Gardening? All of us gardeners — successful or otherwise.”
Palo Alto Daily News
