Gardeners, Any Tips?

When I was a kid, we had a large garden in our backyard. I have vague memories of planting potatoes under black plastic tarps, picking green beans way down low to the ground, and wandering through the corn that grew taller than I was. Unfortunately, the memories don't leave me with too many gardening tips.

I signed up this week for a plot in a community garden sponsored by a local church. I'm excited about the idea that we can grow some of our own food this summer. And a little apprehensive that I have no idea what I'm doing with this whole garden business.

For those of you with experience, what beginner suggestions do you have? Any great books or websites I should check out? Where do I start?


  1. There is a wealth of information on the internet highway here is a few to start you off.

    When you go to gardening sites check out the forums/community/message boards there are tons of information to be had. Happy Gardening and good luck. I have included my twitter page where I am always adding tips for the gardener. Just started however.

  2. Opps I forgot my twitter page.

  3. You should read Lasagna Gardening. Its a great book about layering in the garden so you don't have to till or dig or anything. And its organic too.
