In July & Winter: Growing Food in the Sierra, owner of Sierra Valley Farms Gary Romano details his knowledge from decades of experience growing food in the Sierra Nevada. Despite the challenging mountain climate and soil, Romano has successfully grown food on his 65-acre organic farm and shares his hard-earned tips in ten essential chapters for home gardeners and small farmers. In this book you’ll learn:

• which varieties are right for your region
• whether to use seeds or transplants
• when and how to plant to maximize yield
• how to work with soil, water, and nutrients
• the benefits of biodiversity
• how to manage pests
• how to extend your growing season

About the Author: After a childhood spent pulling weeds and planting seeds, Gary Romano received a master's degree in recreation administration from California State University, Chico, and worked as a park ranger and county park administrator before returning to the farm.
