It makes me nervous to even type these words, but: I think we're going to try out a vegetable garden this year. I thought about it last year and never got around to it, but this year I'm feeling determined. I've picked up some books from the library and have been reading various websites for information, too. Mostly, I want a lot of tomatoes. Maybe it's pregnancy, but I could live off of tomato mozzarella salad these days, so I'm dreaming of picking my own fresh tomatoes.
We're thinking of building a raised bed in our backyard. I know I want to grow tomatoes. Maybe also some broccoli, asparagus and summer squash. I'm afraid of trying to do too much for my first year. So, I'm here asking for your advice. What gardening tips and tricks do you have to share? Any favorite blogs, books or websites with helpful information? Send it my way! Please! And thanks :)
