Garden-Fresh Food Summer, Winter, and Every Time in Between

Make every month a vegetable gardening month with Niki Jabbour's proven techniques for year-round growing and harvesting. Begin by planting your vegetables during the seasons they prefer -- tomatoes and peppers need summer sun and heat; asparagus and radishes thrive in cooler weather; and kale, lettuce, and scallions tolerate frost and come alive under winter sunshine. Apply Niki's intensive gardening methods and some affordable and easy-to-assemble protective structures, and your vegetable garden will reward you with fresh, delicious produce even on short, cold winter days.

Ms. Jabbour has produced a great looking book. I'm happy I added this to my home library even though I've got a lot of others about four-season gardening (such as E. Coleman's books). It's always nice to see how someone gardens on the back side of the calendar. The book has a many photos, which are helpful and well done.

It would be great to see actual plans for a mini hoophouse, including what exactly to buy, lengths and types of materials, and so on. I agree that planting charts would be nice, but many other books have them, and they can be region-specific so not useful to a general audience. And a picture showing how to cut the slit down the "c" clamp cut from a pvc pipe would be useful.

One edit: The graphic for timing Brussels Sprouts should read "First Fall Frost" instead of "Last Spring Frost" and should have another bar for long-season varieties.

Edit to my review: If you are looking for a resource with more helpful specifics, check out Barbara Damrosch's book, The Four Season Farm Gardener's Cookbook. Plans and instructions for a small hoop house are available on the Four Season Farm's website.

I have long extolled the virtues of sowing seed year round. I have long extolled the virtues of vegetable growing. So I welcomed this book with open arms. Niki looks at how to extend the season and grow vegetables all year round. Whilst northern gardeners in short season areas will easily think this a god send, Niki states that the book is for gardeners no matter where they live. The first chapter deals with extending the season. I love the harvest pages - cool, cold, warm season. The photography is great and there are some fab ideas for veg gardeners here. Some of it is specific to the USA and Canada, like frost dates, but most of this information can be adapted to where you live. Chapter 2 deals with continuous crops, soil amendment and interplanting to make the most of your site. Chapter 3 deals with growing into winter when most of us have stopped. It looks at all sorts of protection and more. Chapter 4 is all about designing productive gardens. Part 2 of the book is about the right crops. It's an A-Z of veg and herbs to grow covered in two chapters with Niki's picks, hints and tips. Wait, there's even more , you get instructions for building a cold frame and useful charts. Best garden book I've seen for a while. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

As we're planning a permaculture yard, I've been reading a lot of books on gardening: year-round gardening, composting, winter gardening, soil prep, and more. This is one of the best. After tons of reading, this book is to the point, informative without taking pages and pages, has lots of pictures (always good!) and directions for particularly the cold frames she shows on the book cover, and explains everything I need very succinctly. We can build 4-5 cold frames just based on her instructions, very easily. Her index is very good (having a good index is necessary and some books don't do well on this), her vegetable list is pretty detailed and complete with information we can really use during planting.

While it may not be as detailed as, say, Gaia's Garden, that's exactly what I need. I also have Gaia's Garden and was looking for a different type of instruction as we will be doing intensive food growing. This book fit that bill perfectly. I would definitely recommend this to add to your library, or as a starter book--depending on your needs, other books may not be that necessary.

This is a great book for northern gardeners trying to extend their too-short growing season. It includes detailed descriptions for growing various vegetables and herbs through the seasons, even some particularly cold-hardy plants that are unfamiliar to a lot of people. One thing I would have preferred is a comprehensive chart/schedule showing planting dates similiar to that found in Eliot Coleman's first book. I still would highly recommend this book.
