Harvesting vegetables all winter long is what we discuss on today’s podcast with Catherine Sylvestre of Ferme des Quatre-Temps, in Hemmingford, Quebec, Canada. Catherine is an agronomist and director of vegetable production and leader of the market garden team at the farm. She is also the co-author of a new book, called The Winter Market Gardener, along with JM Fortier. She develops, implements, and teaches best practices for cold season growing, specializing in crop protection and greenhouse production for northern climates. We talk about how to time plantings as growth slows in the winter, how to use a variety of structures to spread out the harvest, we answer some listener-submitted questions, and more! Whether this is your first winter growing or your twentieth, there are plenty of ideas here to help dial-in winter vegetable production.
