Gardening book or website recommendations?

I have been growing tomatoes in containers for years, but we moved to a place that already had a 'garden' in place. It isn't a raised bed or anything great, but it has given me lots of room for practice.

Can anyone recommend a book or website for general gardening basics? I have researched a lot of books on Amazon, but there are a lot of choices that are highly rated, and our library has summer-long waiting lists for them.

Re: Gardening book or website recommendations?

I am highly prejudiced toward permaculture and no-til methods.

For books I'd recommend Lasagna Gardening for starters:

Uh... Lasagna Gardening? here is a brief web page:

I also love Gaia's Garden:

and Ruth Stout's No Work Garden Book:
Seems amazon is not the place to procure this one- I got mine at a used book store for a couple bucks.

An excellent start to answering 'what is permaculture?' ~

Some fun basic basics gardening sites:

Yay gardens!
