Advice For the beginner?
I have never gardened before. Things that might seem obvious are not obvious to me, I can't even keep house plants alive! I would like to plant a small vegetable garden in a raised bed this spring (summer??)
I want to grow tomatoes (are those upside down planters any good?), jalapeÃ¯Â¿Â½os, red peppers, green peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, and not sure what else. Suggestions? I also want to create an herb garden, preferably in a large pot so that I might move it indoors in the winter and maintain it year round (is that even possible?).
I found a tiered raised bed that looks easy to put together and is a good size for the area I wish to plant in. The area I wish to plant in gets full sun and is near my shed for easy access to tools.
Tell me what tools and supplies I need, when to plant, tips and tricks...talk to me like a five year old (because I'm going to teach my five year old as I learn ;p )
