Lesley’s been gardening on our piece of Northern California coastal land for over 40 years. For vegetables, she’s come to rely on the book Golden Gate Gardening by Pam Pierce.
• Foggy climate charts
• What to plant when
• Encourages year-round vegetable growing.
• For the the San Francisco Bay Area and coastal California.
Over the years, we’ve given copies to our boys, as well as friends who are starting out to grow vegetables in the area.
