First time gardener......need pointers
I'd like to start a small garden this year (my parents used to garden). We don't need a huge amount of produce as we are a family of 4 but would like to be able to grow a little fresh produce for better quality than the grocery store.
I'm interested in growing squash (yellow & zuccini), bell peppers, tomatos, cucumbers, broccoli (if that does well in TN), possibly a small row of corn, a couple of plants of beans and peas (prefer one's with edible pods), purple & yellow onions, maybe some spinach.
Would also like to do a hill of pumpkins (for carving), watermelons, cantelope and possibly some strawberries.
I helped my mom and dad a little when I was a child but I don't know much about growing my own garden. Hope to get my two kids involved, they are 8 & 13.
Also any tips on starting a small window herb garden.
