A Master's Manual of Tools and Techniques for the Home and Market Gardener. Everyone reads this book when starting out in market gardening!
The New Organic Grower is essential reading for all market gardeners. Coleman is a founding father of the market gardening movement, and considered a genius by many who follow his systems. He is an efficiency expert, and he writes clearly and passionately about growing food organically.
This book advocates growing vegetables in an intensive, hand-cultivated system. Coleman has suggestions for every aspect of ecological growing, from starting seed to harvest and sale.
You may not end up adopting all of Coleman's recommended practices, but you still need to read this book because it provides a common language with other growers across America.
