I browsed through SEVERAL gardening books at Barnes and Nobles and this one was the best. It has intro information about how to make a section of your lawn into a garden, it discusses soils, organic vs. chemicals, composting, and more. It talks about how you really need to pre-plan your garden before you begin. There is a huge section on veggies + herbs. Each veggie has at least 2 pages devoted to it adn each page talks when to plant, how to harvest, when to harvest, how much light it needs, what types of factors may inhibit growth, etc... The book also talks about frosts and gives a chart for all of GA and the counties to show when the frosts occur and when they end and thus how many days of planting season you have. This is a great book and I am going to start composting soon so I can begin to plant a garden after the frost ends in March.
