The Winter Harvest Handbook: Year-round Vegetable Production Using Deep-Organic Techniques and Unheated Greenhouses

The Winter Harvest Handbook: Year-round Vegetable Production Using Deep-Organic Techniques and Unheated Greenhouses

by Eliot Coleman, 247 pages, 7x10, softcover. Handsome photographs and graphic charts by Barbara Damrosch are pertinent and enhance this edition of a Coleman classic. Not a re-hash of his old work: Coleman will never stop experimenting and innovating and his handbook is full of improved techniques that he has discovered in the past decade. His model is the Parisian maraîchères of 150 years ago. Cultivating as much as 6% of the land within the city limits, their system was so sustainable that their soil fertility continually increased, their selection was vast, they farmed year-round, and they fed not only the inhabitants of Paris but also exported vegetables to England, averaging from 4 to 8 harvests per year. Coleman and Damrosch aim for similarly intensive production, maximum use of greenhouse space, and have achieved gross returns of $80,000 per acre annually. Here’s how they do it. -CR Lawn
