This review is from: Four-Season Harvest: Organic Vegetables from Your Home Garden All Year Long, 2nd Edition (Paperback)
I've built a few cold frames in north-eastern Massachusetts based on all the latest theories of maximizing and storing solar heat. They didn't work so well. Then I tried Eliott's simple cold-frame design and it was in every way superior! He's not making stuff up to sell a book, this is time-tested and personally tested advice from a master grower. This, and "The New Organic Grower" were my favorite books before I moved South.

Glen~ Now that you're in the South, what gardening books do you like? I'm in the Raleigh area of NC and would like to start with something simple. Thanks!

If you don't mind driving to Asheville twice a year, http://www.organicgrowersschool.org/ has a spring and fall weekend of classes and organic agriculture fair which are great, but that's not the same as a book that can give you the solution while your problem is actually occurring. Your county Agricultural Extension Agent might have some good information specific to your area, but I found the Polk County, NC agent to have much more specific information than the Spartanburg, SC one, so your mileage may vary.
It's not organic, but Commonsense Vegetable Gardening for the South has a lot of great information that seems very applicable to the Piedmont area of the Carolinas. I had a little trouble with the organization, but the advice is the most regionally appropriate I've found so far.
