Thanks for all the great help everyone! I guess my biggest hurdle is how to really get rid of all the weeds... they seem to grow rampant in my beds and I think that is what is so overwhelming for me. I think once I get rid of them all, it won't be so bad keeping up with it, but I gotta get to that point 1st!

Never use the word 'diet' if you want lasting weight loss - it's about retraining our thinking & way of living!

I love motivating others to get active & live a healthier lifestyle - which in turn keeps me motivated!

Welcome to the team Lori. Start small and work from there. Maybe try doing herbs in pots. or tomato plants in your flower beds. First time I ever had a garden, I lived in a rental and it had this huge tiered bed out front that had been neglected for a long long time. I planted strawberries in it first year and 2nd had some tomatoes.
I've been intimidated by growing herbs and started planting them in my flower beds and pots and this year I'm going to have a regular row or garden for the. See what works for you and then expand from there. Hugs. Barb

Zones are important, but I've pushed it when I find a plant I really want to try. DH does not go near the flower beds or veggie garden unless pestered and I like it that way. The lines between landscape and gardening were lost long ago. Things the deer eat go in fenced "veggie garden". You have to look hard to see veggies for the flowers and berries.

thank you for the warm welcome! lol, zone? i have no clue!

the only reason I say landscaping, is because I was corrected by my mom when I called it a garden (even though she has as much of a green thumb as I do - none!) It is basically the area lining the south and west perimeters of my house...

That is a great idea. I don't think he would fall for it. I'll give it a go and see what happens.

The preparing of the garden is intimidating? Or the weeding?

CHABEAN, lock up your dh and keep him away from your garden. LOL Give him a honey do list to keep him busy but feel important. ;-)

I have the same type of thing going on with my yard. The only difference is that my husband has killed a lot of the yard. Grass, flowers, everything. It's hard to plant anything with him around.
So, Maybe with the teams help, we both can get a handle on our yards.

Hello and Welcome!
don't be intimidated by the dirt. =)
My first garden, we cleared it, put top soil in mixed it up, made rows, planted seeds, watered, voila. food popped up. Good stuff.
I'm not saying it's that easy everywhere, but you should give it a go.

Thanks to mom-in-garden for showing me this team! I need some serious help getting my landscaping in decent shape this year! It has been hugely neglected since I purchased my home. I have no knowledge of gardening and I think that intimidation has kept me from "digging" in and getting things turned around!
