Hello, I'm an aspiring gardener this year. I'd like to start out with a flower and herb container garden (maybe a couple veggies), and I would love for it to be organic. What are some books I should look at before starting?

Starting out with a container garden will be fun and easy.  I don't see any great organic gardening books posted on PBS right now, but I would say anything published by the Rodale Press is going to be a good start. There's also a couple books edited by Organic Gardening magazine - I think they've gone out of business, but their books would still be helpful.  If you want to purchase a book then try the "Organic Gardening for Dummies" book, it'll get you going. Have fun!
