Last year was the fist time that I ever tried to grow anything edible. I kind of succeeded. I got some peppers and tomatoes and I made into salsa and canned.
This year I am making a few changes to what I am planting (trying different things) and I am planning ahead.
This year I will try: lettuce, lavender, strawberries, morning glories, garlic, carrots, pumpkins, green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, marigolds, and mint. Some things will go in pots and some things will go in the ground. And, if I can manage it, I will also plant several raspberry and black berry bushes. We've tried these in the past and have not been successful, but I am willing to try again.
Do you garden? What do you plant? Any advice for a newbie?
