I've written several posts on the garden so here I'm just going to list a few books websites
I'm also not listing seed catalogs because I feel we all should discover our own local seed sellers , share seeds locally etc. so I encourage you to look up local seed places through seeds of diversity or heritage seeds etc.
Basically what I always want to instill in others is .
Yes You can Garden !
There is no one specific type of gardening that is the right way .
You will find the type of gardener you are in time .
Start small , have fun , & dream big .
I am really sorry to say Harrowsmith mag no longer has a website at this time . From articles online I've read they had to cut staff and have been combined with global somehow . The mag is still in print though as far as I know .
