Book Synopsis



The ultimate bible for organic vegetable gardening in the Pacific Northwest, featuring extensive updates and new material on soil health, natural pest control, and more

Now in its seventh edition, this complete guide to organic vegetable, herb, and flower gardening addresses issues of soil, seeds, compost, and watering. Growing Vegetables West of the Cascades has evolved from a self-published pamphlet into the master guide to organic gardening over the past thirty-five years. Steve Solomon, who founded the Territorial Seed Company, was one of the early proponents of organic gardening, and the first to codify and refine the best practices of small-plot vegetable gardening in the Pacific Northwest. The approaches to understanding and preparing soils, composting, chemical-free fertilizers, efficient uses of water, and garden planning are universal to any climate or region. Solomon gets specific in his extensive advice on growing specific crops--from tomatoes and beans to kale and turnips--in the gentle maritime Northwest climate.

This new and updated edition includes:

- A new formula for complete organic fertilizer and how to tweak it for different soil conditions
- How-to sections for herbs and ornamental plants
- New organization for better usability
- Updated sources for appropriate seed suppliers
- Information about natural pest controls

About the Author



Steve Solomon has been writing Growing Vegetables West of the Cascades since 1979. He has homesteaded in Oregon because he believed in living self-sufficiently, and he is the founder of the Territorial Seed Company. Marina McShane joined the Territorial Seed Company in 1981 working in the seed room and helping in the trial grounds. That intensive immersion into the philosophy and practices of the organic gardening of vegetables still informs her approach.
