Short-Season Vegetable Gardening

Pacific Northwest gardeners often find the climate too short to grow certain vegetables. Two horticulturists explain how to maximize a gardener's chances for success in the face of the vagaries of untimely frosts and snow and lower air and soil temperatures. Soil preparations, protective coverings, and mulches are discussed.

I hope someone sees this comment. This publication is nearly 20 years out of date. It advocates using old tires and inner tubes as gardening aides. I believe the science no longer supports these items as acceptable in a vegetable garden.
Peggy, thank you. This has been in revision for three years now. I hope it gets done soon.
Is there a updated version of this available? Also, I live in Fort Klamath and am attempting a raised garden bed this year. I'm finding I SGILL can not put out my tomato plants, yellow squash or peppers or plant seeds in my raised garden bed. I e chosen seed varieties with 50-65 days of Harvest. Please advise. I'm hoping for a healthy Harvest!
