Eliot Coleman's love and deep knowledge of gardening comes through in this easy to read, and easy to use book. I love the idea of a four season harvest, and if he can do it in Maine, then anyone can do it! The book opens the readers mind to the wide spread possibilities that await gardener's with imagination, an open mind, and the willingness to work at it. He offers ideas for cold frames, row covers and tunnels to extend the season. Good explanations as to how they protect crops. The book also gives a great amount of detail for a wide range of vegetables. Charts provide information on when vegetables can be harvested throughout the year, and offers the reader many vegetables to choose from for a three season harvest, and a fair number for the four season harvest. I would recommend this book to anyone, beginner or experienced gardener!

This book is the only one of it's kind I have found. Not only does it have step-by-step instructions and tables on when and how to plant and harvest, it also has plans for building your own cold frames and a portable greenhouse (hoop house). Many books on the same subject focus on artificially heating a greenhouse to grow warm-weather vegetables. This one does not! The focus is instead on how to use what is naturally cold tolerant, and how to keep your plants harvestable throughout the winter.

Great advice on extending the harvest season, by using inexpensive, easily constructed cold frames and tunnels. I, for one, am planning on eating vegetables fresh from my zone 5b garden, all winter this year.

This book is full of wonderful tips and instructions on raising fruits and vegatables organically and how to best improve the soil. I use this book so much as a reference in the garden that it is covered with soil and the pages are wrinkled from rain so I am ordering a new copy.

i love this book! the author's philosophy is that simple is best, and the best approach is to work with (not against) mother nature. the fact that he can coax a four-season harvest out of his garden in maine is inspiring. i'm a novice gardener, and have read too many books where elaborate systems that cost a lot of money just turn me off. not so with this book. i found his recommendations of cold-hardy vegetables very helpful, because i'm also in the northeast, but they may not apply to all readers.

The book came in excellent condition and quickly. This book was recommended by a Master Gardener as a great resource to extend your growing season and have healthy, fresh vegetables almost year round. Excited to try some of the suggested methods.

This is a great book for people who are serious vegetable gardeners. It's jam packed full of useful information about organic growing. I don't extend my growing season, which is the main subject of the book, and have still found it invaluable. Eliot Coleman is one of the big names in the American vegetable gardening world, and his books stand apart from the scads of others that have come on the market in the past few decades. This is my second copy, the first having been used so heavily the pages were coming out.

I found this book to be very helpful and am putting much of the author's advice into practice here in NE PA.
