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, covering Oregon, Washington, southeastern Alaska, and British Columbia. 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.

Features an A-Z section that profiles the 50 vegetables, fruits, and herbs that grow best in the region and provides basic care and maintenance for each. Introductory material provides valuable information on gardening basics and garden planning.

Lots of basic information that seems to be a compilation of several other PacNW geared books. Not my favorite, but still worth looking at. If this style of guide suits you I would highly recommend the Maritime NW Garden Guide from Tilth Alliance.

I personally loved this book as a new gardener. Never really knew what and when to start here in our PNW region. This was exactly the book of information I was looking for. The month by month schedule was very useful. Now I feel more confident to test out growing more vegetables.
