I've been watching videos on all sorts of gardening for about a year now, and I'm finally getting around to trying this stuff out myself. I find it more efficient to read than to watch videos, so I'm asking for any books that taught you something invaluable. I know a few big names, but there's only so much time I have to read! I don't think it would be the best idea to try to read all the books I can find from just a few authors. What are your favorite books? I'm looking forward to a nice list from you guys, and I hope this can help other people, too.
A valuable book I have that's full of good information is The Soul of Soil by Grace Gershuny & Joe Smillie. Another book that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and was Ten Acres Enough by Edmund Morris. It's a fantastic read about a guy and his family leaving the rat race in 1850's New York and going to the country to farm. I wish that book had been longer as I couldn't put it down and finished it in a couple days.
