First off, thanks for the responses to the pear tree question I posted earlier. I'm going to work on those pears this year. My next question regards gardening for a first timer. My first and only garden was 20 plus years ago. So, Im starting from scratch. I am hoping to be successfull with tomatos and green beans, the "house favorite". The bigger the garden is, the less we have to mow so dh is helping out a bit as well. What were your easiest things you started with? Your favorite gardening book/website? We were looking into a green house, but we are running out of time to get things started. That might be next years project. Thanks in advance for your replies!!
