The book that started it all for us was Mel Bartholomew's "Square Foot Gardening". Now in a bajillion different editions, including one for kids and one for cooking, SFG was the perfect book for a Brooklyn gardener. It contained tons of useful information like what, when, and how to plant in limited space. It was complete and it was concise. There was a poetry in its pragmatism and we appreciated that because this is New York! It's cramped and everyone's busy.
