The Timber Press Guide to Vegetable Gardening in the Mountain States
Piles on the tips, charts and checklists for everywhere along the Rockies. ... You can tell she's been there and planted that and knows our region's eccentricities like the back of her trowel
Growing vegetables requires regionally specific information — what to plant, when to plant it, and when to harvest are based on climate, weather, and first frost. The Timber Press Guide to Vegetable Gardening in the Mountain States tackles this need head on, with regionally specific growing information written by local gardening expert, Mary Ann Newcomer. This region includes Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, eastern Washington and Oregon, northern Nevada, and the southernmost parts of Alberta and Saskatchewan.
Monthly planting guides show exactly what you can do in the garden from January through December. The skill sets go beyond the basics with tutorials on seed saving, worm bins, and more. This book also includes a comprehensive gardening primer and an A to Z of edibles — a detailed, invaluable source for the region’s tried-and-tested varieties.
