The Winter Harvest Handbook takes the local-food revolution to a new level. Eliot Coleman explains how to successfully - and profitably - harvest fresh vegetables all year-round in even the coldest climates using unheated, or in some cases, minimally heated, movable plastic greenhouses. Coleman offers clear, concise details on greenhouse construction and maintenance, planting schedules, crop management, harvesting practices, and even marketing methods, in this meticulous, illustrated guide. His painstaking research and experimentation with more than 30 different crops will prove invaluable to small farmers, homesteaders, and experienced home gardeners who seek to expand their production and harvest seasons.
