SOLAR GARDENING

8 1/2 x 11, 288 pages

This book includes many low cost uses for our Sun-Lite® Material. Highly recommended for the cost-conscious solar gardener! The versatility of our Sun-Lite® material allowed us to develop several unique concepts and products for gardening enthusiasts both hobbyists and professionals.
Sun-Lite® Glazing
provides highly diffused light completely free of glare and hot spots. This revolutionary benefit yields high quality, well shaped, symmetrical plants which grow faster, with better uniformity and size.

The Poissons, experienced New England gardeners, present their system for continuous food production. Inspired by French intensive gardening techniques that originally utilized bell-shaped glass jars called cloches to protect tender plants and extend the growing season, the Poissons have developed solar gardening "appliances," including the Solar Cone, the Solar Pod, and the Pod Extenders. Use of these mini-greenhouses, combined with other gardening techniques such as intercropping, crop rotation, and careful site and soil preparation, can make it possible to harvest fresh vegetables year-round. Details are given on how to build the solar appliances, followed by information on 90 garden crops grouped by three main categories: heat-loving, cold-hardy, and cold-tolerant vegetables. Although only those with considerable space will be able to implement fully the American Intensive system (a garden area of 40' x 40' is needed for a family of four), the Poissons provide useful gardening tips for all organic gardeners. Highly recommended for all vegetable gardening collections.
