I want to try growing small amounts of many different fruits and veg and discovered a website that sells tiny sample packets of seeds for 35c. http://www.artisticgardens.com/ As a beginner cook I found Adele Davis's book "Let's Cook It Right" very helpful. This is not a recipe book (although there are some in there), but an explanation of the science of cooking. What heat does to food, how one method makes meat tough but another tenderizes it, how to cook a moist turkey, that sort of thing.
