I wish I’d found this book a couple of years ago, during January. It’s filled with advice specific to the Pacific Northwest climate and weather patterns, and has a month-by-month calendar of what to plant, what to start indoors, and what to harvest.

I’d always thought of vegetable gardening as a summer sport; I had no idea you could plant certain vegetables in the fall and harvest them in the spring or even during the winter.

Would recommend very highly to PNW gardeners.

Vegetable Gardening in The Pacific Northwest is a gem of a book. It is well organized, with a nicely designed layout, and written in an inviting tone. And to the point, its packed with great explanations and scientific knowledge, specific tips and intelligent ideas. For example, use a nuanced interactive inline map to pinpoint your climate zone closely. If you do not buy local seeds, add time due to lower "heat units" in the PNW. Learn to use all the free rainwater. How to do both seed starts an ...more

I'm a person who wants to start gardening, but doesn't know the first thing about it. I particularly don't know anything about gardening in my particular region, which I've found out is unique in its requirements and growing seasons.

This author does a great job of giving enough necessary detail about the vegetable growing needs for the region without making it intimidating. She covers outdoor gardening, as well as container gardening. The main part of the book focuses on a month-by-month plannin

The value of this book was the information on which month to plant (sow outdoors or indoors or transplant) and harvest specific vegetables. The second piece of valuable information was the section on edible plants where the author suggested specific varieties that grow well in the Pacific Northwest. Interspersed within each month, the author provided advice on topics such as how to grow the ever popular tomato, make compost, harden off plants, etc.

I finished this and immediately ordered it, full of helpful information, such as what veggies to start each month (be it seeds, or starts), even how long various seeds last. Very region specific to the Pacific Northwest, but if you live here and want to grow vegetables, A+ resource.

Well laid out, but not much here that I didn't already have access to elsewhere.
