As someone who is only in his 2nd year of gardening, I found “Grow Vegetables” by Alan Buckingham to be a great resource. It lists a wide variety of vegetables with great pictures and all the basic information you would want to grow something for the first time. Everything I grew this past season was included in this book. This book helped answer questions throughout the season, from when to plant to when to harvest. The book also discusses different places to grow your vegetables. I mainly focused on just the vegetables themselves since I didn’t have much choice this season of where I grew my vegetables, but I am sure that information would be helpful as well.
