I'm trying gardening for the first time. I enjoy cooking so I figured an herb garden would be perfect. The area I'm looking at is and L shape - about 6 feet long on either side and 3 feet wide (there is room for expansion). I guess my first round of questions have to do with preparations:
-Should I do anything special to prepare the area? I'm hoeing all the grass off, tilling the area, and planning on adding humus, manure, and soil.
-Also what types of herbs are good to start with? The area is next to a fence so will not get full sun except for in the morning.
