I am looking at my shelf of 20 gardening books purchased in the last 12 months and this is my favourite. I live in Southern England, so rather distinct from the location of the writer, however, I found the advice, tips and plans to be a good guide and an even better inspiration. Well written and illustrated; this will be a good reference for years to come.
I find 'The year-round vegetable garden' a great guide not only for specific produce, but particularly for then insights into crop rotation, use of cover and succession planning to get the most from your garden for harvest throughout the year.
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!
This book is great! The more I read about how it gets to the supermarket the more I want to grow my own. Ms. Jabbour has produced an excellent text that will help you grow all year round. It's almost December and I'm looking forward to many winter veg as a result of her ideas.
