New to Gardening: clueless
I'm new to the forum and to gardening as well. I just bought a house and so now I have this little but nice piece of backyard that needs my love and care.
I'm more than willing to love it, except I know nothing about gardening and I don't want to do the wrong thing.
I've never had a green thumb, but I want to change that, and I need a little direction from people that know, experts in gardening, especially the kind of gardening that work on the northeast. I'm not sure how much can/should I do now that is December.
Should I wait for Spring?
In any case, in which order and what things should I begin doing?
Is there a "bible" for gardening? Like a great introductory book?
I would like this little backyard to have a couple of different sections, one for toys for my baby, like a swing and a slide (something small), one for a table and some chairs, and then some green and maybe a garden to grow tomatoes and herbs. Can I grow tomatoes and herbs in NY? Can I grow anything in NY?
