One of the first questions should be what do you like to eat? You can learn specifics about each plant and how/where to grow them. I think gardening should be just like storing food in your pantry, you should buy what you eat and eat what you buy. (Rotating of course!)Looking to start a garden but know VERY little. Please help!
I just heard about an elderly woman in s.fla that had been growing vegetables in her front yard for 17 years. The city commission sued her for code violation, saying no vegetables could be grown in front yards. Happily, there are groups all over the country jumping in to her defense, and I was pretty pleased to hear that the people on the board are getting death threats. What kind of assholes would go after an old lady instead of dealing with real problems of running a city.Ours is planned for Feb., just took a bit of research first. We're prepping the area in January, to plant in Feb. I have a good diagram on one of these threads, so I'll have to dig for it. (changed computers since that was posted).
Basics include: Green Bell Pepper, Onion, Celery, Carrots, Green Beans, Garlic, and others. We'll also have an area for Strawberries as well (as our area is kind of known for it).
We're also putting in an herb garden around that time, along with a Koi Pond in the front entryway area. Basically cooking and medicinal herbs, especially those that flower, along with some other flowering plants (this is so it appears that it is there for beauty, when really more about function).
Our garden area isn't visible from the road, or even most places on the property.
Next year, we'll also start planting some fruit trees (apples (yes, some can grow in Fl), pears, and oranges), but these will take a few years to fruit.
