    We mostly grow brassicas and the more hardy leafy greens during winter as
    well as onions and garlic. Carrots will also do ok as long as I get them in
    before it gets too cold.

  2. This is one of the few gardening books that is actually worth buying
    especially when you garden in Canada or some colder parts of the USA.

    That sounds like a great book. I will have to keep an eye out for it.

  6. They have the book at amazon, do you have amazon down under. Do you have
    snow where you reside in Australia? I like the book because now I
    understand how to plan for the whole season. I started some onion seeds
    today … spring is coming!

    Yeah we have amazon down here but I prefer to buy from a local book shop.
    We occasionally get snow, maybe one or days during winter and only a real
    thin covering if it even settles but most of our nights will be around
    freezing during winter.

  8. I think I saw this book at the library. I’m going to try to check it out,
    thanks!

  9. Hi, yes I can grow year-round, but it isn’t as wonderful as it sounds. The
    weather is extremely erratic, and usually if I plant a cool weather crop,
    it invariably turns too warm and the plants fail. Planting warm weather
    crops, then it cools down is another drawback. Those variables together
    with my small garden area makes it hard, but I keep plugging away :) I love
    gardening, even if I stumble along the way

  10. I am jealous. You can grow herbs still at these temperatures. Cilantro is
    pretty hardy and oregano and may others. Here I got about 50 cm of snow
    right now and this winter we had temperatures below -30 C. Anyway it is
    beautiful here too just the winter is long.

  11. You are a lucky man because you can grow pretty much all year round with a
    little protection.

  12. Gardening Girl you can grow all year right? At my climate I hope that with
    a little work I can stretch my growing season by about 3 months. Good book
    exactly what I was looking for.
