Additional Notes

From The Publisher*The first frost used to be the end of the vegetable gardening season - but not anymore! In The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener, Nova Scotia–based gardener and writer Niki Jabbour shares her secrets for growing food during every month of the year. Her season-defying techniques, developed in her own home garden where short summers and low levels of winter sunlight create the ultimate challenge, are doable, affordable, and rewarding for gardeners in any location where frost has traditionally ended the growing season.

Jabbour explains how to make every month a vegetable-gardening month. She provides in-depth instruction for all of her time-tested techniques, including selecting the best varieties for each season, mastering the art of succession planting, and maximizing the use of space throughout the year to increase production. She also offers complete instructions for making affordable protective structures that keep vegetables viable and delicious throughout the colder months. 

What could be more amazing than harvesting fresh greens in February? Jabbour's proven, accessible methods make this dream possible for food gardeners everywhere.
From The Publisher*From picking the best varieties to succession planting, interplanting, and how to use simple season extenders (row covers, cloches, cold frames, hoop tunnels, and unheated greenhouses), readers will discover all of the key techniques for success in maintaining a productive vegetable garden 365 days a year.
