Thanks for sharing! Fortunately, my (awesome) local library has both books suggested, so I put them on hold for when they are returned (in about 1 week)!
"The belief that everything should be done perfectly or not at all is the enemy of consistency and momentum" - The Spark
Thanks for the leads!
"Procrastination buys us an odd limbo -- we are not out of, or into, the thing we dream of. It is the waiting room inside us" Unknown

You might also wish to look at Square Foot Gardening. It is a great way to get a lot out of comparatively little space. Wikipedia has a good little explanation, including the "soil" mix you need for your raised beds. If you prefer to look at the book on the subject, I will say that if you are something of a gardener already, you can get virtually all of the info you need in about 15 minutes scan of the book. get it from a library if you can, or get the basics off the WEB.

The noblest question in the world is,
What Good may I do in it?
Poor Richards Almanack, 1737
Thank you :-) I will definitely check it out!
My favorite container gardening book is Bountiful Container by McGee and Stuckey. After general info on container gardening, including managing the space, they discuss vegetables, herbs, fruits, and edible flowers. They include a list of vegetables they do not recommend for containers and the reasons for their inclusion.
Do you want to plant your garden by color? They include recommendations.
Do you want a kids' garden? A salad garden? A garden for your cat or for hummingbirds? These and many other specialties are included.
Great book. For me it has been a keeper for years.
