This is our first year owning a home and we really want to start a garden. We live in NW Ohio and I'm not sure what the best plants are to grow. We're not a fan of peppers so I really don't want to grow them. I think we are going to do lettuce, corn, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, and carrots. Do you have any other suggestions or maybe a reason why some of these are a bad idea? I also want to get some blueberry and strawberry plants. We have a raised garden bed that I want to put those in.
I guess my first question is how to get started. I know I want to go to our local extension office and have the soil tested. When do I know to plant? Do I start everything off by seeds? I know for the blueberry plants I want to get some that are already started. Do you have any good resources I could check out? I downloaded gardening for dummies on my kindle so I plan to study that.
Thanks for any advice you can give me.
