    Who here is gardening this year, or is planning a garden? I sure am! We all love our very own fresh fruit and veggies right? Well, that is why I started this thread.This thread is for sharing ideas, giving advice, having fun, sharing pics info etc!
    So lets start!

    Today I planted some Asparagus, some beans, and a few Squash seeds! (Planted indoors, and I will transplant to garden later in the year) I also hope to plant carrots, Potatoes, and Lettuce as well!

    What are you going to plant?

    (Flowers and flower gardens are welcomed to this thread)

    Okay, I'll have to check that out. But the only problem would be that we don't have much garden space, most of our land is grass and forest!
    Have you ever grown any types of fruit or berry? We tried Blueberrys. They failed cause we didn't take care of them very well.
