I am new to the forum and gardening and have been reading all of the different posts for how to work and have a bountiful harvest. This is my first year and I am growing flowers and vegetables. Right now I have corn, watermelon, cantaloupe, bush beans, pole beans, black-eye peas, sweet peas, Lima beans, wax beans, cucumbers, green peppers, spaghetti squash, bush squash, tomatoes, two banana trees, collards, turnips, lettuce, spinach, carrots, sweet potatoes, Irish potatoes, onions, and broccoli. I tried to grow a little of everything to see what will do well and so far everyone's tips and methods is making me see some form of progress. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for being so nice and sharing your gardening experience it has really given me inspiration and hope.
