Year-Round Vegetable Gardener Hardcover – 14 December 2011
From the Back Cover
Make every month a vegetable gardening month with Niki Jabbour's proven techniques for year-round growing and harvesting. Begin by planting your vegetables during the seasons they prefer -- tomatoes and peppers need summer sun and heat; asparagus and radishes thrive in cooler weather; and kale, lettuce, and scallions tolerate frost and come alive under winter sunshine. Apply Niki's intensive gardening methods and some affordable and easy-to-assemble protective structures, and your vegetable garden will reward you with fresh, delicious produce even on short, cold winter days.

The reference to American climate, even though I'm in the UK, is a good example to help understand how to plan your site/growing...which I hadn't really thought about.
A great all round guide, it's the right size to be really usable; presenting enough insights clearly and succinctly. For myself - coming to the end of my first year's planting - it's made life easier...and I'm inspired to plan much better for the spring!
