Book Review: The Winter Harvest Handbook, Eliot Coleman

This is a wonderful book, full of great tips for growing vegetables year round in Northern places. I appreciate the fact that he uses minimally heated, movable greenhouses as well as larger, heated glass houses. Greenhouse construction, crop management, planting schedules, even marketing methods are covered in his comprehensive and down to earth book. There are chapters on insects and diseases, soil preparation, weed control, and deep organic farming methods for small farms. Highly recommended if you would like to try growing food year round.
