Grow Veggies Year-Round
Nikki Jabbour’s The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener tells us how to keep the produce fresh and our weeding muscles honed. Put simply, the book breaks down the weather barriers for cold climate gardeners.
Jabbour’s instructions are detailed enough for any gardener’s level of expertise. Imagine cutting fresh salad greens in December. And if green leafy vegetables aren’t your thing, you’ll be sure to find your favorite in Jabbour’s list of plants to grow throughout the year, including varieties she’s grown in her Nova Scotia garden. She makes it sound so easy, I’ve purchased more seeds to sow in September.
I am lucky enough to have a companion for the book—the VegTrug. With this marvel of simple engineering and the plastic greenhouse cover, I’ll be enjoying fresh beets, leeks, and even Brussels sprouts much later than I’d ever dreamed of.
