Anyone have any advice for a first time vegetable garden?
#3
You might want to consider raiding local dumpsters that sell plants. Agway, Tractor Supply, etc, are throwing out crates of veggie plants the past week. I have found and planted hundreds of plants this way that are populating our garden.

I also found hundreds of seed packets behind Tractor Supply last year.

Also, depending on where you live, there might be an immense amount of wild edibles in forests, roadsides, and between the cracks in their sidewalks. Even lawns likely have lots of wild edibles. My personal favorites are sheep and wood sorrel and purslane.

If you've got the green thumb for cloning, you can take cuttings from plants you find or from stores you don't want to support or buy from, but have plants you want.

Good luck!
