Introduction

This short book recommends 10 vegetable plants to grow in your backyard or communal garden which will produce food all year round.

For more than 20 years, I have been growing vegetables in my backyard. In 2009, I took early retirement to pursue my lifelong dream of being a full-time author and vegetable grower. I have published a novel, a novella, several short stories and one work of non-fiction, The Philosophy of Slow Vegetable Gardening. Since 2009, I have completed the transformation of my backyard into a productive vegetable growing area supplying me with 80 per cent of our vegetable needs.

In the process, I have learned a lot about which vegetables produce food over a long period of time. The advice in this book is based on my experiences of growing vegetables on the same plot of land. The vegetables I have chosen are suitable for most temperate climate zones.

My Garden

I live in the Canberra region in the south-east of Australia. Canberra sits on a low plateau and has mild to cool winters with average temperatures between 1 - 12°C (33.8 - 53.6°F), dropping below 0°C at night; mild autumns and springs, and short warm summers, with average temperatures ranging from 12.6 - 27°C (54.7 - 80.6°F). In summer, the temperatures can soar into the high 30’s for weeks at a time. Canberra gets about 629mm of rain a year (25 inches), but I have to contend with long dry spells and droughts
