Vegetable Gardening in the North, by award-winning garden author Doug Green, explains how to successfully grow vegetables in challenging climates - whether it be the northeast, northern plains or Canada. Doug has been successfully gardening and writing for beginner gardeners for over 30 years - he’s been there and done that. And he does it by answering the questions beginners want to know about how to succeed with that backyard vegetable garden.
From how many plants does it take to feed a family through to how far about to plant easily grown greens, Doug answers the questions. And when you think you don’t have enough space, he shows you how to grow even more in limited space.
This is a practical book that sprang from the thousands of questions Doug gets on his websites. Want to extend the season? Want to know how to grow in tough areas? How to cheat at the beginning of the season to get the jump on the weather? How to start seed first time, every time and what the common remedies are for pests? It’s all in this book in simple easy to understand terms.
The only thing to add is that Doug says gardening isn’t rocket science and it should be fun or it’s not worth doing. Written with his typical humor, this practical no-nonsense book will help you garden successfully in your backyard vegetable garden
