This is a great book, even for beginner gardeners! Mel is super frugally minded, so you're in good hands with start up costs.

A great resource. Bartholomew is a meticulous gardener with some different philosophies than me, but this book is still filled with great advice and techniques. I've never liked the idea of rows, and this book has given me the tools to get away from them. Square foot gardening enables you to grow more of some crops, less of others more easily than rows. Any gardener will find many useful new ideas in here.

How to crowd your plant so they'll need to be irrigated constantly. Not a great idea in the Okanagan.
