So I've just graduated from high school and will soon start my first year of junior college, and with extra time I thought it would be really cool to start a garden in my backyard. I don't have very much money but I think my parents and brother may help me if I get a good plan. I live in southern California and I figured growing some healthy food would save me money over time and create a nice new hobby.
I'm not really sure what I should grow, but I was thinking maybe avocado's and almonds, I know they both grow here locally so I figure it must be possible. Maybe tomatoes too.
So where do I start? What do I need?
Edit: I would love to grow berries the most though!
