The Q&A Archives: Tips on literature for beginning vegetable gardeners

Question: Is there a book you could recommend with lists of the easiest vegetables to plant and care for? Angela Brown Milton, FL

Answer: One great book to get you started is called Gardening for Dummies (don't take that name personally -- it's a popular series of books for novices). Published by IDG books, you should be able to get it, or special order it, at any bookstore. Your bookstore should have a shelf-ful of books about starting a garden; you might look for one specific to gardening in your climate, such as Gardening in the South by Don Hastings (Taylor Publishing Co., Dallas, TX, 1988) You might also enjoy subscribing toa gardening magazine such as National Gardening, to keep you inspired throughout the year. Call 1-800-538-7476 ext. 22 and ask for a sample issue and subscription information.
