I'm looking for some great reads that relate to permaculture. Particularly the plant aspects.

I have already finished:
Both of Sepp Holzers books
gaia's garden
the vegetable gardener's guide to permaculture
(and a few others I forget)

Thanks

How about Edible Forest Gardens by Dave Jacke and Eric Toensmeier.

It's a two volume set, and it's a bit pricey, but I think it will keep you out of mischief for a while.

Have you seen Paul's obnoxious list of books and stuff?

I'm plugging away at Mollison's tome right now.

Yes that is a bit pricey, my book budget is about $0 right now. However my library has been excellent at finding me odd book. We will see how they do with this one.

Teaming with microbes had me walking softly in my yard for months.

I really got a lot out of "Great Garden Companions" by Sally Jean Cunningham

Gonna go outside the (permaculture) box on this one and reccomend a really old book that is excellent-

Ten Acres Enough by Edmund Morris. 1864. no typo, 1864 publication.

In the era when all farming was organic, tractors didnt exist, and horses hauled the inputs, Edmund Morris was an agricultural genius. His fertility regeneration, his produce quality and yields, and his focus on labor efficiency, are all models for anybody growing food seriously today.
