Gardening Experience
a few seasons
Gardening Philosophy and Preferred Methods:
Due to a lack of experience all I can say is that I wish to garden without using chemicals or genetically manipulated seeds.
I want to eat what I grow and I can only say that my philosophy is to learn.
Skills and Tools I can share:
Little or no experience I am afraid. I can share my enthusiasm and that's about all right now.
My interest in yard sharing:

Small Urban plot in NY

Just wondering if any of you guys have experience in this setting.
Do's, don'ts and all in between.
I am hoping to grow tomatoes which I have done before. I also want to grow peppers including jalapeno and bell peppers. Herbs would also be an additional bounty if possible.
I would like to ask you more experienced soil tenders is it possible to do a summer crop and a fall crop like turnips or potatoes?

Aslo You might want to repost this as a topic in the discussion area...The blogs seem to be a little isolated from the rest of the site.

Say hay to Kat!

Also - there's a link in the DIY section about things that grow really well in semi shade. Check that.

Hey YOU!

Thank you for joining! : D
If you are thinking about the back yard...those things you want to grow are all real sun pigs. Or did you find a new spot? You might look for'potato bags' and upside down tomato bags...for small areas.

So glad you joined us!

LizM
