Four-Season Harvest


Look what came in the mail today! Four-Season Harvest by Eliot Coleman arrived from a giveaway by Homestead Revival. I have never won a give-away before. I was thrilled to win this book as it has been on my wish list, my local library doesn't have it, and I almost purchased the book.

Four-Season Harvest describes the author's method of growing vegetables year round with the help of cold frames and a unheated greenhouse. What excited me was that he gardens in Maine, which has harsher winters then we do!

We all know we should eat more fresh vegetables and nothing beats vegetables you've grown yourself for freshness, flavor, and vitamins! I've been trying to extend our growing season and have learned a lot from our little hoop house this past year. In the few hours this book has been laying on my kitchen counter, I've opened it up to random pages and have already learned a some new things to utilize in our garden this year!

I'm sure you will be hearing more about this book! Thanks to Homestead Revival for giving me this opportunity!

  4. I've never heard of that magazine, but I'm going to look for it. I love gardening. We are in the south, so we should be able to do this with no problem.

  5. Sandra - It is actually a book. I added a link from Amazon so you can check it out closer. I'm sure you could find helpful information for the south as well.

  6. Gina, I just came across your blog a few weeks ago. I love the muffin recipe and now have a batch of master mix in my pantry!
