new to gardening (plans for next year)
I have only had one (1) successful garden in my life. HELP! I (well DH) tilled up a great area last spring, but unfortunately we share our backyard with an 8 year old black lab :o . I know I need a sturdy fence (last years cheapo wire fense didn't keep him out!) Anyway, my question is: being new to organic gardening, and RAW, I want to grow AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE! (next year) Is there a resource that would help me know which plants to plant when? I want to stretch beyond the typical zuchini, squash, cucumbers, tomatoes that most people grow. I want lettuces, watermelon, larger squashes, strawberries, (any other kind of berries?) etc. My list could definitely go on.....any suggestions for books or local resources that would help me with an organic garden?
