Both of these books prove to be beneficial to the backyard grower.
Here is why I think that they work so well together.
The Four Season Harvest
Eliot Coleman's book is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the covered garden, or greenhouse gardening.
He explains, with illustrations, exactly how to create a Hoop House Garden that can produce sustainable food year round with Greenhouse Growing.
The problem is that the concept promotes the need to move the Hoop House throughout the seasons in order to prepare and seed the plant beds in advance.
When the season is ready for the next crop the Hoop House is picked up and moved to that plot of land.
This also allows for crop rotation to keep the gardening plot soil healthy and full of nutrients.
So, this would mean that you would need a larger plot of land. The Four Season Harvest is still a great book for eventhe gardener with the smallest of backyards.

The soil is to be left alone, no need for crop rotation, and no need for a huge backyard, or plot of land.
