The Q&A Archives: Winter Vegetable Garden

Question: I would like to start winter gardening starting in Sept. and going thru the spring. I would like to know the vegetables
that would work well in my zone and the plant cycle that would go with the vegetable. Is their a good book on winter cold frame growing? We would like to have salads, carrots, etc. Any input would be great.

Answer: A great book for you would be "The New Organic Grower's Four Season Harvest", by Eliot Coleman (Chelsea Green, 1992).
