Book: Four-Season Harvest Elliot Coleman has fresh green vegetables from his garden all winter, in Maine. This is how he does it, without expensive heating, but with many ingenious homemade solutions and careful selection of crops and planting methods. On a trip to southern France, he realized that Maine is at the same latitude. This sent him on a search for ways to grow plants year round, and European crops bred for that purpose. Full of ideas, plans and great color pictures so you can do it too.
