Vegetable Gardener's Bible - Ed Smith

 

Lots of great information. More tailored to the north eastern United States.

Don't agree that you should lay garlic in the sun to dry as it can cook them.

Golden Gate Gardening

Golden Gate Gardening - Pam Peirce

 

If you live in the San Francisco area, this is the gardening MUST HAVE book. I think any regionalized book beats a general informaiton book any day hands down and Pam has done a great job for our area. I have read and reread, had her sign it and read again.

Grow Great Garlic - Ron Engeland

 

I love to grow different types of garlics and find what works well in my area. Ron gives you very detailed information about garlic, the origins, the different types and how to grow it.
