Backyard Bounty: The Complete Guide to Year-Round Organic Gardening in the Pacific Northwestby Linda Gilkeson
Ah, master gardener Linda Gilkeson, you so had me at "Grow the most food in the smallest space (with the least work)." Backyard Bounty is truly a complete guide. Not only is there help with planning and planting, Gilkeson also shares advice for ailing plants and pests. Included as well, one of my favorite features in a gardening title: a monthly garden schedule.

"New book from Linda Gilkeson....This is the sort of news that organic gardeners in BC should get excited about....Whether you're a novice gardener or a seasoned grower, there's lots of really practical, helpful insights in this book. And, like the WCS Growing Guide, its regionally specific, so there's no guess work in adjusting the planting schedules....We see lots of new books come in, but this one deserves some attention, in my opinion."
