We just moved into our new small house and are elated at the nice front yard (small bushes and planted flowers) and large backyard garden full of veggies (chard, lettuce, avocado tree, and some herbs)...but I don't know the first thing about gardening and we can't afford a gardener right now.
I have two weeks off, so any advice on how/where I could read up (books, blogs, etc) and start taking care of it?? Or any tips at all? Anything is much appreciated, thanks!

Some areas have rules on what you can plant, after that check out these links http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wv1KLDPf8YY
and the basics http://www.dummies.com/how-to/home-garden/gardening.html
Keep in mind how much work you want to put into it and if you would like to attract birds to your yard.
