Many gardeners can supply a significant amount of their own food during the plentiful summer harvest.

In Winter Gardening in the Maritime Northwest, Binda Colebrook provides a complete guide to cool season crops and how to raise them. Gardeners from southeastern Alaska to southern Oregon will benefit from her clear, practical advice on:

  • Selecting and preparing the ideal winter gardening site

Whether your favorite meals include hearty roots or succulent greens, Winter Gardening in the Maritime Northwest will help you maximize your food production year-round.
