The Vegetable and Herb Expert book comes in alphabetical order so no index needed. I don't do chemicals either, or digging, but it's a useful guide if I'm growing something for the first time or working out where I went wrong.
I use raised beds which get compost piled on in late autumn or early winter and then raked levelish. Come spring, a quick hoe and they're ready for planting out seedlings or plugs I've grown on in pots to get them big enough to cope.
