Books I want to own – Starter vegetable gardens: 24 no-fail plans for small organic gardens

by Barbara Pleasant, co-author of The complete compost gardening guide (yes, another book  I want).

I love this book!

It has shopping lists for every year.  It has labeled (as opposed to keyed) diagrams.  It has plans for long hot summers and short cool summers.  Living in Florida, I might need the former more than I need the latter.  Although I hear that that broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts grow very well here in the winter.  It tells you when to plant stuff, and how to use vegetables as ornamentals.  Well-indexed, too.  I may have to dig some green stuff out of my wallet for this one.
