Overview

If you love the joys of eating home-garden vegetables but always thought those joys had to stop at the end of summer, this book is for you. Eliot Coleman introduces the surprising fact that most of the United States has more winter sunshine than the south of France. He shows how North American gardeners can successfully use that sun to raise a wide variety of traditional winter vegetables in backyard cold frames and plastic covered tunnel greenhouses without supplementary heat. Coleman expands upon his own experiences with new ideas learned on a winter-vegetable pilgrimage across the ocean to the acknowledged kingdom of vegetable cuisine, the southern part of France, which lies on the 44th parallel, the same latitude as his farm in Maine.


This story of sunshine, weather patterns, old limitations and expectations, and new realities is delightfully innovative in the best gardening tradition. Four-Season Harvest will have you feasting on fresh produce from your garden all through the winter.

This book is an inspiration. It has inspired me to give winter gardening a try. If you love to garden and hate to see it end in the fall, this book is one for your collection. The "research" done is mostly the author's personal travels and trials doing something he loves, sifting through the details and letting the reader know what works and what doesn't and why. He gives good tips that a basic gardener may not be aware of. One of the best parts about this book is that everything he uses, tools, growing aids, etc, are all hand-made and require no electricity, heat, or other external source of power to help the garden grow. He uses the simple logic of nature to do the work for him and helps it along as any resourceful human would. If you read this in the winter you'll be bumming that you hadn't read it sooner so you could go out and start your own winter garden. I'll be prepared for my first trial in winter gardening this fall.

This is an excellent book! For those who wish to expand their harvests, this is it. I have applied what Eliot has recommended and have had great results.

Coleman's sensible approach is truly inspiring. I can't wait to try some of the techniques and veggies that I never thought I could grow at times of the year that I have usually abandoned the garden.
