NAME: Backyard Winter Gardening: Vegetables Fresh & Simple, in Any Climate Without Artifical Heat or Electricity the Way It's Been Done for 2,000 Years
AUTHOR: Caleb Warnock
SEC: Garden Methods & Techniques
DESC: A simple read that is tremendously helpful in year round gardening, clearly showing how it can be done without breaking the bank. The author is passionate and experienced in the subject. Without fresh, all-natural winter gardening in the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries people would have starved to death. The good news is that feeding your family fresh food from your own backyard garden all winter long is far easier and less time-consuming than you might imagine. It has all kinds of tips for winter gardening, I'm already using several of his ideas in my garden.
"Caleb really writes from his heart and has rediscovered historical techniques proven to grow fresh food (including melons) all winter. His cheap and easy to design (but very efficient) cold frames, hot beds, and even a passive geothermal greenhouse are wonderful tools that any gardener can apply and build." - Hunter Flynn, former garden manager at Ecology Action research mini-farm.
