When I lived in Illinois I have over 1500 sq. ft. of garden, now living in a small house in a subdivision outside Houston, Texas I'm going too be hard pressed to get 300 sq. ft. of garden. I'm buld small raised beds about 10' x 10' each and start out with just a few plants. Now I use to start everything from seed in a green house on grow mats with lights ect ect. now being down here I have no clue when to start things, when to plant them out side, nothing. I'm clues less as a newby smoker and his first brisket attempt. I'm planning on planting tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, zucchini, maybe some summer sqush and maybe a herb area too. oh yea and garlic!!! any input and help would be wonderful. Been trying to find a website that is as great and friendly as this one for gardening down here to.
