I have a 20x20 foot chainlink-fenced off area (I call it my pigpen) that I am going to make into a garden. I have the compost pile going, and I found a couple websites that are helping me get started with planning:

Cool . . that's what I had found so far . . lettuces. But, that will be nice. Thanks for your help!

Find things with a really short season--greens of all types, lettuces, green onions, chives, beets, turnips all grow great in a short time or some of them are great after frost like kale and collards.

I've never actually planted a garden, but I want to. I had my boyfriend build me a compost heap last year so that I could get started, but this Spring we had a horrible run of rainy sundays for what seemed like forever so I never had a day where I could dedicate enough time to the "start-up" process.

I don't really know what I CAN grow for fall here in OH, but I'm going to look into it really soon!

I wish! I love to grow things but live in an apartment in a very bad neighborhood, hardly get outside. Still, I'm thinking about starting some seeds indoors and seeing what I can grow on the windowsill upstairs when it quits these tropical rains. I have some basil seeds and other herbs. I would like to grow some tarragon, but it doesn't seem to do well here. My great goal right now is to get my finances straightened out (starting out with a friend's new company and we're all cutting it lean) and then move into a house in the country with my cats and have a garden. What are you going to grow?

Does anyone have a garden? What are you growing so far this year?

Will you plant anything for fall harvest?
