If you love the joys of eat­ing home-gar­den veg­eta­bles but always thought those joys had to stop at the end of sum­mer, this book is for you. Eliot Coleman intro­duces the sur­pris­ing fact that most of the United States has more win­ter sun­shine than the south of France. He shows how North American gar­den­ers can suc­cess­ful­ly use that sun to raise a wide vari­ety of tra­di­tion­al win­ter veg­eta­bles in back­yard cold frames and plas­tic cov­ered tun­nel green­hous­es with­out sup­ple­men­tary heat. Coleman expands upon his own expe­ri­ences with new ideas learned on a win­ter-veg­etable pil­grim­age across the ocean to the acknowl­edged king­dom of veg­etable cui­sine, the south­ern part of France, which lies on the 44th par­al­lel, the same lat­i­tude as his farm in Maine.

This sto­ry of sun­shine, weath­er pat­terns, old lim­i­ta­tions and expec­ta­tions, and new real­i­ties is delight­ful­ly inno­v­a­tive in the best gar­den­ing tra­di­tion. Four-Season Harvest will have you feast­ing on fresh pro­duce from your gar­den all through the winter.
