If you enjoy the joys of eating property-garden vegetables but constantly thought those joys had to stop at the finish of summer season, this book is for you. Eliot Coleman introduces the surprising truth that most of the United States has much more winter sunshine than the south of France. He shows how North American gardeners can successfully use that sun to raise a wide assortment of traditional winter vegetables in backyard cold frames and plastic covered tunnel greenhouses with no supplementary heat. Coleman expands upon his own experiences with new tips learned on a winter-vegetable pilgrimage across the ocean to the acknowledged kingdom of vegetable cuisine, the southern portion of France, which lies on the 44th parallel, the very same latitude as his farm in Maine. This story of sunshine, climate patterns, old limitations and expectations, and new realities is delightfully revolutionary in the greatest gardening tradition. Four-Season Harvest will have you feasting on fresh produce from your garden all via the winter. To understand a lot more about the possibility of a four-season farm, please go to Coleman\'s web site www.fourseasonfarm.com.
