Now in a special updated 6th edition with a new formula for complete organic fertilizer, this complete guide to organic vegetable gardening addresses issues of soil, seeds, compost, and watering.
Growing Vegetables West of the Cascades evolved from a self-published pamphlet to the master guide to organic vegetable gardening over the past 35 years.
This book will help you to understand how to prepare soils, compost, using chemical-free fertilizers, efficient uses of water, and garden planning is universal to any climate or region.
Steve Solomon, who founded the Territorial Seed Company, was one of the early proponents of organic gardening, and refined the best practices of small-plot vegetable gardening in the Pacific Northwest.
Solomon gets specific in his extensive advice on growing specific crops–from tomatoes and beans to kale and turnips–in the gentle maritime Northwest climate. He lays out the principles, but advocates that readers think for themselves and grow their gardens as they see fit.
Steve Solomon has been writing Growing Vegetables West of the Cascades since 1979. The book has evolved and grown as the author has researched, practiced, and refined the methods of organic gardening.
