Read a Few Gardening Books
Vegetable gardening by Jo Whittingham
This book tried to cover too many things, and ended up not being as informative as I would have liked. Fabulous photographs, though.
Edible gardening for the Midwest: vegetables, herbs, fruits & seeds by Colleen Vanderlinden and Alison Beck
This book was more usefully organized, with plants in alphabetical order. Herbs and a few less common edible plants are included, which is a nice feature.
