There is nothing more regionally specific than vegetable gardening--what to plant, when to plant it, and when to harvest are unique decisions based on climate, weather, and first frost.
The Timber Press Guide to Vegetable Gardening: Pacific Northwest is a growing guide that truly understands the unique eccentricities of the Northwest gardening calendar. The month-by-month format makes it perfect for beginners and accessible to everyone--gardeners can start gardening the month they pick it up. Starting in January? The guide shows how to make a seed order, plan crop rotations and succession plantings, and plant a crop of microgreens. No time to start until July? Start planting beets, carrots, chard, kale, parsnips, and spinach for the fall harvest now.
Features an A–Z that profiles the 50 vegetables, fruits, and herbs that grow best in the region and provides basic care and maintenance for each. Introductory material provides valuable information on gardening basics and garden planning.
