If you live in the north country, you don't have to settle for anemic tomatoes on your grocer's shelves. Organic Gardening in Cold Climates can teach you how to reap a vegetable bounty despite a short growing season. Gardeners from the Rocky Mountains to New England can enjoy luscious red tomatoes, fresh kale, and baby carrots chilled by the damp earth in their own backyard.

Sandra Perrin learned how to grow vegetables before agricultural chemicals were ubiquitous and the term "organic" was necessary. For more than thirty years she has gardened year-round in Montana, learning to adapt to cold weather. Consumer demand encouraged her to update this popular gardening book, adding new hardy varieties and time-tested hints. Among other things, you will learn how to store carrots in the ground for winter harvesting, fry zucchini flowers, and ripen green tomatoes. You'll also find hints for cooking and preparing vegetables, a list of northern seed suppliers, and sources of further information. So get ready to dig! Organic gardening is not only healthy for the body but also, in Perrin's words, "good for the soul."
