Hi, welcome to the team. A good source for infomation for you area is your local Master Gardens. They are usually a part of your state university extension service. Here is a link to NJ's extension, njaes.rutgers.edu/garden/ You can click on your county for informationon your county office. They can give you information on planting times for various types of crops as well as what varieties grow well in your area. Also if you click on Home, Lawn & Garden on the upper right side of he screen you can look at some of their publications.
My boyfriend and I are currently trying to get the soil/ground ready outside for some gardening. The garden he used to have in his backyard has become overrun with some sort of grape vines (?) and we are currently clearing out the area in order to plant veggies as well as flowers for the two flower beds in front of the garden as well. :)
I'm extremely green (pun intended) to gardening so I was wondering if anyone could share any information/start up tips? Right now I live in NJ, USA, so we are still in the wintertime. I'm sure there's some sort of special seasonal timing for whatever one chooses to plant/grow, so I guess that's where I'm looking for ideas first. The first thing I saw of importance on here was to stay away from Monsanto seeds; I've read horrible things about that monster of a corporation and will make sure that whatever I plant won't involve agent orange!
Okay... as for my weight loss journey, I'm new to that, too. I have quite a bit of weight I'd like to lose, and I thought perhaps I'd learn to appreciate my food more if I put in the elbow grease of growing it myself. :) I'm a vegetarian, so what better place to start than with growing my own veggies? :)
