Vegetable Gardening in the North, by award-winning garden author Doug Green, explains how to successfully grow vegetables in challenging climates - whether it be the northeast, northern plains or Canada. Doug has been successfully gardening and writing for beginner gardeners for over 30 years - he’s been there and done that. And he does it by answering the questions beginners want to know about how to succeed with that backyard vegetable garden.
From how many plants does it take to feed a family through to how far about to plant easily grown greens, Doug answers the questions. And when you think you don’t have enough space, he shows you how to grow even more in limited space.
This is a practical book that sprang from the thousands of questions Doug gets on his websites. Want to extend the season? Want to know how to grow in tough areas? How to cheat at the beginning of the season to get the jump on the weather? How to start seed first time, every time and what the common remedies are for pests? It’s all in this book in simple easy to understand terms.
The only thing to add is that Doug says gardening isn’t rocket science and it should be fun or it’s not worth doing. Written with his typical humor, this practical no-nonsense book will help you garden successfully in your backyard vegetable garden

I don't give feedback on most books; however, this one is an exception. I really learned a lot with this book. As a matter of fact, I'm making index cards to take with me to my community garden. This is my first year with a garden plot with 100% sun and I'm so excited. The fact that he has one 5 information, that's the best. His sense of humour keeps the reading less than text-bookish. I especially chuckled about the definition of a Hard Frost. (still makes me smile) The ONLY thing missing is a few sample plot with like veggies growing next to each other. It must be tough to know what veggies people like, but a general guide (in color) would be super. I bought this for my Nook and I'm on the 3rd time through it. DEFINITELY a good buy. Might even rate a 5-star after I see how my garden works out! ;-)
