If you love the joys of eating home-garden vegetables and hate that the fruits of your labor cannot be harvested year-round, than this book is for you. Eliot Coleman shows how North American gardeners can successfully use that winter 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 cuisined, the southern part of France, which lies on the 44th parallel, the same latitiude as his farm in Maine.
This story of sunshine, weather patterns, old limitiations and expectations, and new realities is delightfully innovative and encouraging.
