My husband and I finally have a yard to plant a proper garden. We have done patio container gardening with herbs, flowers, and the occasional peppers and tomatoes, for many years but are excited to finally have room for planting a sizable vegetable garden. I’m curious to know if any of you plant and maintain a garden what wisdom you have to share, especially anything specific to our area. We will be doing raised beds and I have big plans but I don’t want to go overboard.
I got a ton of books from the library on the topic and am looking for classes on how to begin. I found a couple of classes at the Cornell Cooperative Extension (is that what it’s called?) and at Hilltop Hanover farm. Does anyone have any resources to recommend for getting started? The area we are planning to plant in gets full sun for many hours. We have woods beyond our yard and get many critters visiting-- deer, coyotes, foxes, so we will definitely have to put up fencing.
Thanks in advance for sharing!
