Eliot owns and operates Four Season Farm near Harborside, Maine with his equally famous wife, Barbara Damrosch, author of the bestselling book, "The Garden Primer." Together, they grow and sell produce all year – even during the bitter winters of their zone 5 region. The methods Eliot and his wife use to grow year-round in Zone 5 are ones you can use to extend your season, too, no matter where you live.
