About the Book

Gardening Without Irrigation is a novel written by Steve Solomon. Soil moisture loss averages 1-1/2 inches per week during summer in the eastern U.S. West of the Cascades, bare soil may not lose much moisture at all. By creatively using and conserving this moisture, some Northwest gardeners can go through an entire summer without irrigation. A plant wilts out of self-preservation when it can no longer absorb as much water as it is losing. Water is so crucial to life. In deep, open soil west of the Cascades, most vegetable species may be grown quite successfully without irrigation or mulching. Let's suppose that on April 1 the soil in this bare plot was at capacity, holding all the moisture it can. From early April until well into September the hot sun will beat down on the bare plot. The soil serves as their bank account, storing the water that is accessible. Water will eventually rise by capillary action from below the root zone if the soil body is deep.

About Author

Steve Solomon

Territorial Seed Company was started by Steve Solomon. For more than 35 years, he has grown the majority of the food for his family. He is also the author of several influential gardening publications, including Growing Vegetables West of the Cascades and Gardening When it Counts. When he was about 12, he asked his father what job or career he wanted him to have when Steve grew up. At that moment he was touched. Sir Steve doesn't care if you're a doctor or an auto mechanic, he added. Experiencing what his father’s ongoing anger and resentment over this did to him and to our family, he resolved to do better. Steve Solomon supposes that’s why most of his income has been created from home. In his late twenties, Steve became a secondary school teacher, this was done out of a foolish notion that he could inspire a love of knowledge in the young by getting them to “do” history, which was something he had a passion for at that time. The students back then weren't old enough to understand history very well, thus the strategy didn't work out very well (a study that rarely should be undertaken by someone under thirty years of age).
