Cooperative Extension Service
from the Garden: An Organic Guide to Growing Vegetables, Berries, and Herbs in
Cold Climates - by John Whitman. Fresh is simply best. To get the
tastiest, most nutritious produce, you have to grow your own, and in a cold
climate this presents unique challenges. Fresh from the Garden will help you
extend the growing season to produce the best vegetables, berries, and herbs,
right in your own backyard. The guide includes more than 150 edible plants and
helps you decide which varieties to choose; where and how to plant, tend, and
harvest them; and what to do with your bounty. Fresh from the Garden is a
clear, concise (yet comprehensive) guide, with nutrition information tables
and hundreds of helpful color photographs. A gardening text book!

- by Steve Solomon. This is a more advanced book for those who are serious about raising food. In this volume, Steve explains why intensive gardening methods are not natural and therefore require great amounts of energy and effort to maintain. A lot of information regarding soil health and cover cropping is included.
