I have a fair chunk of land that I can use for a veggie garden... but my problem is I have never done this before... how is the best way to start? Right now the proposed garden area has grass and weeds. I will be renting a rototiller to turn it up and I will be tossing the top layer of sod over the fence. How do I stop the regrowth of the grass and weeds? I know the root system goes down a fair ways and skimming off the grass layer will just open the earth.. I will be mixing in with the rototiller old chicken bedding that has been aging for 2+ years along with some fresher stuff. I want to grow: potatoes beets carrots squash (various types) garlic onions asparagus** tomatoes peppers.. last time I tried to grow these they were all wonky and mis-shaped beans I dont know if I should do different plots.. so the squash put in a 5'X5' area because I know it will spread and invade other areas but if I give it, its own little plot away from everything else it wont push other things out. I have heard that if you plant onions and garlic around the perimeter that it will deter the bunnies.. is this true? **I know asparagus take more then one season to grow. I have an area thats between my two dining room windows thats elevated and out of the way what tips and tricks can you offer a beginner?.. am I going to big to soon?
