Présentation de l'éditeur

The first frost used to be the end of the vegetable gardening season — but not anymore! In The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener, Nova Scotia–based gardener and writer Niki Jabbour shares her secrets for growing food during every month of the year. Her season-defying techniques, developed in her own home garden where short summers and low levels of winter sunlight create the ultimate challenge, are doable, affordable, and rewarding for gardeners in any location where frost has traditionally ended the growing season.

Jabbour explains how to make every month a vegetable-gardening month. She provides in-depth instruction for all of her time-tested techniques, including selecting the best varieties for each season, mastering the art of succession planting, and maximizing the use of space throughout the year to increase production. She also offers complete instructions for making affordable protective structures that keep vegetables viable and delicious throughout the colder months. 

What could be more amazing than harvesting fresh greens in February? Jabbour’s proven, accessible methods make this dream possible for food gardeners everywhere.

Ms. Jabbour has produced a great looking book. I'm happy I added this to my home library even though I've got a lot of others about four-season gardening (such as E. Coleman's books). It's always nice to see how someone gardens on the back side of the calendar. The book has a many photos, which are helpful and well done.

It would be great to see actual plans for a mini hoophouse, including what exactly to buy, lengths and types of materials, and so on. I agree that planting charts would be nice, but many other books have them, and they can be region-specific so not useful to a general audience. And a picture showing how to cut the slit down the "c" clamp cut from a pvc pipe would be useful.

One edit: The graphic for timing Brussels Sprouts should read "First Fall Frost" instead of "Last Spring Frost" and should have another bar for long-season varieties.

Edit to my review: If you are looking for a resource with more helpful specifics, check out Barbara Damrosch's book, The Four Season Farm Gardener's Cookbook. Plans and instructions for a small hoop house are available on the Four Season Farm's website.

I have long extolled the virtues of sowing seed year round. I have long extolled the virtues of vegetable growing. So I welcomed this book with open arms. Niki looks at how to extend the season and grow vegetables all year round. Whilst northern gardeners in short season areas will easily think this a god send, Niki states that the book is for gardeners no matter where they live. The first chapter deals with extending the season. I love the harvest pages - cool, cold, warm season. The photography is great and there are some fab ideas for veg gardeners here. Some of it is specific to the USA and Canada, like frost dates, but most of this information can be adapted to where you live. Chapter 2 deals with continuous crops, soil amendment and interplanting to make the most of your site. Chapter 3 deals with growing into winter when most of us have stopped. It looks at all sorts of protection and more. Chapter 4 is all about designing productive gardens. Part 2 of the book is about the right crops. It's an A-Z of veg and herbs to grow covered in two chapters with Niki's picks, hints and tips. Wait, there's even more , you get instructions for building a cold frame and useful charts. Best garden book I've seen for a while. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

I say yes! This book would be quite valuable to anyone attempting to keep their vegetable garden growing year round. The authors offer many practical solutions to problems faced by backyard gardeners. The text is accessible and amateur friendly, and the pictures are nicely photographed. 5/5 Stars

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book for northern gardeners! 26 décembre 2011

This is a great book for northern gardeners trying to extend their too-short growing season. It includes detailed descriptions for growing various vegetables and herbs through the seasons, even some particularly cold-hardy plants that are unfamiliar to a lot of people. One thing I would have preferred is a comprehensive chart/schedule showing planting dates similiar to that found in Eliot Coleman's first book. I still would highly recommend this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best books I have 14 mars 2013

As we're planning a permaculture yard, I've been reading a lot of books on gardening: year-round gardening, composting, winter gardening, soil prep, and more. This is one of the best. After tons of reading, this book is to the point, informative without taking pages and pages, has lots of pictures (always good!) and directions for particularly the cold frames she shows on the book cover, and explains everything I need very succinctly. We can build 4-5 cold frames just based on her instructions, very easily. Her index is very good (having a good index is necessary and some books don't do well on this), her vegetable list is pretty detailed and complete with information we can really use during planting.

While it may not be as detailed as, say, Gaia's Garden, that's exactly what I need. I also have Gaia's Garden and was looking for a different type of instruction as we will be doing intensive food growing. This book fit that bill perfectly. I would definitely recommend this to add to your library, or as a starter book--depending on your needs, other books may not be that necessary.
