Why Stop Survival Gardening This Winter?

I’m fortunate enough to have a greenhouse in which I’m able to keep a little kale and yellow potato multiplier onions growing over winter. I’ve had moderate success with lettuce in the past. However, you don’t necessarily have to have a greenhouse to keep growing food in winter. This week’s DestinySurvival Pick can show you the way. It’s Four Season Harvest: Organic Vegetables from Your Home Garden All Year Long, by Eliot Coleman and Barbara Damrosch.

This isn’t a new book by any means, but it’s one I’ve heard people refer to often as the book that helped transform the way they garden. Coleman is an innovative organic gardener from Maine who operates a gourmet salad business during the winter months using various cold frames and high tunnels. If he can do it in Maine, surely there’s hope for the rest of us who live through cold winters.

Discover how you can harvest fresh vegetables and salad greens throughout the year without an expensive greenhouse or indoor light setup. Find out how to make use of succession planting. There’s also info on making cold frames.

Obviously, some crops lend themselves to cold weather gardening better than others, and you owe it to yourself to try them if you haven’t. Get the guidance offered in Four Season Harvest. Order your copy by clicking on its title wherever you see it linked in this post. You’ll be taken to the page featuring the book, and you can order there.

Remember, think survival. Grow a little fresh food this winter.
