I may try potatoes this year as soon as we thaw. We constantly buy potatoes, so if I can save a little growing my own, that just makes sense..

I'd also like to try growing garlic.

You and me both on Potatoes! Even though I am from Idaho and plan to retire there I want to grow as much of my own as I can. One thing I have learned from watching the Curtis Stone youtube channel Urban farmer is to separate your garden from the business farm. Some stuff is not economical in a business sense but is absolutely an awesome garden crop.

I like this thread a lot. We were just talking about how we want to turn part of our lawn into a garden. Good advice on the tomatoes nota.

What kind of tips would you suggest for someone just getting into gardening? Wed like to do tomatoes and squash and herbs this spring.

Go on youtube and look up the Urban Farmer by Curtis Stone. I am using his techniques and crushing the tomatoes. If you go to his tomatoes videos he explains everything he does for his tomatoes. He also has squash videos.

I just bought my forever home to start my market garden business. It's 1.5 acres and has the perfect shed with power for a pack house right in the middle of one of the fields. I plan on ripping out the front lawn and turning it into a garden area too since we live in the country and would never use it.
