If you're interested in growing your own fruits and vegetables, you've joined the ranks of a blossoming group of DIY gardeners who place a premium on the idea of self-reliance. But like any other kind of gardening, growing edibles is not a one-size-fits-all pursuit: in order to be successful, you'll need to know not only which plants grow well in your state or region, but also how to grow them with careful methods and a schedule that caters specifically to your local microclimate. Fortunately for you, Northwest Fruit & Vegetable Gardening is written exclusively for gardeners who want to grow edibles in British Columbia (Canada), Northern California, Oregon, or Washington. Author Katie Elzer-Peters, the master gardener responsible for our bestselling Beginner's Illustrated Guide to Gardening (2012), equips you with all the information you need to design your edible garden, tend the soil, maintain your plants throughout their life cycles, and--most importantly--harvest the delicious foods they produce. So whether you live on the Olympic Peninsula, in the Willamette Valley, in the Walla Walla Valley, or anywhere else in the Northwest, you'll discover the best fruit and vegetable plants for your garden in this beautiful step-by-step how-to guide . . . and they'll be on your table before you know it.

Well here's the thing to start with Northern California has rather different growing conditions than the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia has a vast range of growing conditions and zones. Then she has substituted pretty pictures for information and in fact has put out some misinformation (eg. her Persimmon info is misleading). Intead of giving her one point I gave her 2 1/2 hoping that the extensive pages on pruning were something she actually knew about but I have to admit by then I wasn't interested in reading any more so don't really know. When should you borrow this book? When all the other good books are taken and you are new to the area so just want an idea of what grows here. Then go else where to find exactly how to grow it.
