Read a Few Gardening Books

I read a book to earn this badge: 
Vegetable Gardening by Jo Whittingham and Edible Gardening for the Midwest by Colleen Vanderlinden

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.
