The market farming master is back with another groundbreaking book! Coleman's work for the past decade has focused on extending the season with unheated hoophouses. In this book, he shares everything he has learned.
Winter Harvest Handbook provides expert advice on year-round vegetable production. Coleman describes a system in which cold-tolerant veggies are grown in the soil under a low tunnel, inside a high tunnel. The second layer of protection is crucial to winter production in most parts of the U.S. and Canada.
This book provides construction details for Coleman's movable hoophouses, which he can slide onto new ground in spring and fall to accommodate different crops. The booklet contains many other technical recommendations, such as row cover weights, and vegetable varieties.
This important new book provides the missing link to financial viability for many small farms. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to make a living on a vegetable farm.
