Synopsis:

Organic Gardening in Cold Climates can teach you how to reap a vegetable bounty despite a short growing season. Gardeners from the Rocky Mountains to New England can enjoy luscious red tomatoes, fresh kale, and baby carrots chilled by the damp earth in their own backyard. Perrin helps you plan your garden and shows you how to plant, fertilize, water, mulch, and harvest — without the use of agricultural chemicals. Special sections explain companion planting, season extenders, composting, natural pest and disease control, saving seeds, and the French Intensive method of gardening. You'll also find hints for cooking and preparing vegetables, a list of cold climate seed suppliers, and sources for further information. Includes 64 pen-and-ink drawings, index, 2 appendixes, and 4 charts.

Synopsis:

For more than thirty years Sandra Perrin has gardened year-round in Montana, learning to adapt to cold weather. Consumer demand encouraged her to update this popular gardening book, adding new hardy varieties and time-tested hints. Among other things, you will learn how to store carrots in the ground for winter harvesting, fry zucchini flowers, and ripen green tomatoes. So get ready to dig! Organic gardening is not only healthy for the body but also, in Perrin's words, "good for the soul."
