I am fairly new to gardening. This is my 3rd year. Each year my plot gets bigger! 1st year I had 2 very large containers that I grew strawberry's and tomatos in. Last year I dug out a spot in the corner of my yard and experimented with several things. I had zuccini, tomatos, broccoli, cantalope, blueberrys and several herbs. Really only the zuccini and tomatoes did OK. This year I have doubled the size of my plot and want to do it right! I am in zone 10. I will be rototilling my entire plot next weekend and getting all ready for planting. I will be browsing this site alot as I am in need of alot of advice. Looking forward to a very prosperous gardening season!
