From Seed to Table: A Practical Guide to Eating and Growing Green
Eating locally grown and seasonal foods addresses many of the social and environmental problems raised by today's energy intensive methods of food production. In From Seed to Table, organic gardener Janette Haase offers a month-by-month guide to growing a significant amount of food in a small home garden. From the earliest spring salads to autumn's sweetest root vegetables, this book will show anyone with willing hands and a small plot of earth how to grow an efficient and productive garden and enjoy a healthier, more environmentally responsible diet. Haase takes the home gardener through the tasks of the gardening year, giving clear instructions for the work to be done at each time, from planning to planting to harvesting and storage. And she doesn't forget the best part of growing your own food -- eating! The book includes delicious seasonal recipes and menu ideas plus food for thought in the form of essays on food-related issues that affect everyone.

I love this book - it is written by a gardener who lives in the same general area as me (with a slightly more severe climate, but not much more). This makes it directly relevant to my conditions, which is a delight. The book is a mixture of recipes, detailed planting advice and essays on various aspects of environmental concern, arranged by month so that she gives advice on what you can be doing in the various parts of the year. Highly recommend it - for any organic grower - but if you're in Eastern Ontario, it is even more of a gem!

Good source of information for Canadian gardens. I found bits that have been lacking in other resources. She does a nice job pulling it all together into the months, which helps one focus on order.
