Staff Reviews

By far my favorite guide to NW vegetable gardening (it's the only one I continue to use). It has easy to navigate month by month breakdowns of exactly what you should be doing and what things you're able to plant. For someone with an attention span like mine, it's a no-brainer.

How to grow your own food in the Pacific Northwest!

There is nothing more regionally specific than vegetable gardening. What to plant, when to plant it, and when to harvest are unique decisions based on climate, weather, and first and last frost.
The Timber Press Guide to Vegetable Gardening: Pacific Northwest is a growing guide that truly understands the unique eccentricities of the Northwest growing calendar. The month-by-month format makes it perfect for beginners and accessible to everyone—you can start gardening the month you pick it up. Starting in January? The guide will show you how to make a seed order, plan crop rotations and succession plantings, and plant a crop of microgreens. No time to start until July? You can start planting beets, carrots, chard, kale, parsnips, and spinach for an early fall harvest.
This must-have book is for gardeners in Oregon, Washington, southeastern Alaska, and British Columbia.
