This is my second attempt at a garden. Last year's... I didn't pick a good spot! I thought it would receive enough sun. Fail.

This year, I'm in a completely different state. Looking at the university's horticulture site, I can't plant veggies until the first of May. Or that's the suggested anyway. So, I have to wait.

 Too early up here in NJ.  End of this month, I will start seedlings for transplanting in May.

Can't wait.  :-)

It will be 74 today.   I doubt it will get into the 40's at night until winter.  Time for us to plant.    I can't wait for 7 weeks or so when I start getting tons of tomatoes!

 We don't get tomatoes until July.  We will get cucumbers, too.  DH usually plants different kinds of peppers, basil, mint, parsley, zucchini, eggplant...one year we did canteloupe in containers too.

I never thought about chamomile.   Where do you order your seeds from?

I may have missed the boat. Traditionally I start planting 2wk in March, but I have already notices several herbs springing up and bluebonnets sprouting. Our winter has been very mild, and the past 2 wks our avg temp has been low 70's with a few days in the 80. I will plant anyway and see what happens...

I haven't started yet.  I need to hit the store and pick up seeds and start them in my house.  I am gonna have a friend help me get my garden spot finished.  Matt and I started putting in a few raised beds last year but didn't finish.  I haven't decided what I am planting yet other than I know I want to do beans and peas.  Maybe I will do some carrots and tomatoes.

I built some square foot gardens in the side yard last year, they did ok.  I also tried some container gardening on the deck.  This year, I think I'm going to plant mostly herbs and tomatoes, maybe some peppers and a few greens.  I planted a strawberry patch last year too, and that should produce pretty well this year.  It's still too early here to plant, most things can't be planted until at least May. 

I learned a lot last year by watching you tube videos.  There's a lot of interesting people out there willing to share their gardening knowledge.
