Overview

There is nothing more regionally specific than vegetable gardening. What to plant, when to plant it, and when to harvest are unique decisions based on climate, weather, and first and last frost.

The Timber Press Guide to Vegetable Gardening: Pacific Northwest is a growing guide that truly understands the unique eccentricities of the Northwest growing calendar. The month-by-month format makes it perfect for beginners and accessible to everyone — you can start gardening the month you pick it up. Starting in January? The guide will show you how to make a seed order, plan crop rotations and succession plantings, and plant a crop of microgreens. No time to start until July? You can start planting beets, carrots, chard, kale, parsnips. And spinach for an early fall harvest.

Features an A–Z section that profiles the 50 vegetables, fruits, and herbs that grow best in the region and provides basic care and maintenance for each. Introductory material provides valuable information on gardening basics and garden planning.

Meet the Author

Lorene Edwards Forkner is the author of several gardening books, including Hortus Miscellaneous (2007), Growing Your Own Vegetables, and Canning and Preserving Your Own Harvest (both 2009). Her writing has appeared in several national and regional publications including Organic Gardening, MaryJane's Farm, Northwest Garden News, and Edible Seattle.

A popular speaker with a warm engaging manner, Lorene is always eager to weigh in on horticultural mysteries, offer direction for design conundrums, and teach DIY gardeners how to dig in and craft a personal landscape filled with an abundance of interest and delicious flavor.

Lorene considers her approach to making gardens to be rooted in childhood outdoor play, supported by a degree in fine art and years of experience owning and operating Fremont Gardens, a small specialty retail nursery in Seattle, Washington.

At home in West Seattle, Lorene tends a city garden abundantly filled with favorite plants, a small but productive vegetable garden, plenty of room for relaxation, and a tiny vintage travel trailer. She fully admits she is a garden geek most at bliss when covered in dirt. You can follow her adventures at PlantedAtHome.com.
