A couple of links I would have liked to have found a few months ago–
Tilth.org: “Fall and Winter Gardening in the Pacific Northwest” (2001, PNW 548)
Includes planting dates for winter/spring harvest, minimum plant temperatures, recommended varieties, and other useful tips and resources.
Fourseasonfarm.com – Eliot Coleman: “A Garden For All Seasons”, or, “Gardening On The Back Side Of The Calendar”. (PDF, Issue 178, February/March 2000)
Contains a cross-section of the information from Coleman’s 1999 book “A Four Season Harvest“. Minus much of the fluff. (And minus a good bit of the information, to be fair.) Still, it’s a good start if you’re interested to see where Coleman is coming from.
As it is, the first Spring Seed catalogs arrived in the Wednesday mail. Time to start planning for summer.
