A new garden is much like having a new child... challenging at times, yet immensely rewarding. I hope this year turns out to be a great one. Welcome to TEG!

Hi, and Welcome from SE Missouri. Did you grow vegetables or flowers (or both) in last year's garden? Can you be more specific in your location? You can put it under your avatar, like zone 5b or whatever. There are several people here that live in the NW. Digit'S, Thistlebloom and Collector, to name a few. They will probably be able to help you with area specific questions.

Zone 5a to be specific. 😊

I grew vegetables. I probably should have started smaller. I had leafy greens (kale, spinach, lettuce), green beans, red and purple onions, garlic, potatoes, bell peppers, jalapeños, banana peppers, a variety of carrots, broccoli, golden bush beans, purple pole beans, a variety of tomatoes, a variety of corn, a variety or pumpkins, cucumbers, zucchini, summer squash, watermelons, cantaloupe, and sage, basil, dill, oregano, thyme, parsley, cilantro, plus a green house full of tomatoes, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and basil! I also grew medicinal flowers such as Chamomile, lavender and Calendula! I’m hoping to have a mixture of half veggies and half herbs!
Hoping I’ll be able to have a large garden again someday soon, but in my own backyard!

Starting big is great! You garden doesn't look small too me; about the size of mine, maybe bigger. You'll find help and encouragement here. Have a great day!

THAT'S your first year garden???? WOW!! Can I have a shipment of your dirt?? LOL LOL Our soil is what is known locally as sugar sand. Pure sand. We moved here 5 years ago and I've been amending the sand ever since. But I haven't had a garden like yours yet! Hmmmm…… maybe a coffee can of your garden soil, gathered by the light of a full moon at midnight, stirred with a chicken feather, set it on a stump (a brick will do) and dance around it chanting,
Good dirt go to Baymules garden! Over and over, for uuhhhh……. maybe 15 minutes! Yeah, that ought to do it! :lol:
