I bought this book at an American Association of University Women's booksale for $2. I must admit just the name James Crockett led me to consider this book. I remember seeing Jim on the Victory Garden series on PBS.
I like the organization of the book, begining with February and ending in October with a small chapter entitled "After the Frost" at the end.
Each month we are reminded of chores and new plants are introduced with their culture. Then there are special features like how to build a greenhouse with diagrams and a materials list, landscape design,container gardeningrdening,irrigation, and propagation and planting. I'm sure you can find this book on ebay or Amazon.

Yes, it's old. Yes, plant fashion has changed to some degree and the cultivars have changed. However, for year-round practical gardening advice I often find myself picking up Crockett time and again. Want a really simple explanation of how to divide dahlias or oriental poppies? How about a straightforward plan on how to build a composter or cold frame? It's all in here, the writing is clear, and the advice is both practical and realistic.
