Hello helpful gardeners. I have just moved to Texas and moved into a house. I was just looking to start a small personal vegetable garden. I have yet to begin any process of the gardening, but am looking for any tips/help anyone can suggest. I do have what I want to grow in mind so any specific help is greatly appreciated. The plot im working with is not very big. Maybe max 18 ft by 18 ft. I would like to grow.
Chives, Garlic - Perennial
Sweet Basil - Annual
Pepper - Jalapeno M
Squash - Summer Squash
Pepper - Carnival Mix
Bean - Bush, Green Snap
I will be researching as much as possible, but again any specific or general help to get me going is greatly appreciated.
In advance I would also like to know if perhaps it is too late in the season to start growing any of these? I have looked at their estimated growth time, but was unsure when frost began in Texas (since just moving here)?
Do any of these plants require a large plot of land reserved for them? I have read Squash and Beans do like nutrients, what sort of fert does anyone suggest? Thank you very much to everyone who can help me out. I do believe in growing your own food, and organic foods. Thanks again.
