hello.......<br><br>
I just found veggiboards and I am very excited that I have a place to post besides peta2, although I love thier boards. I am getting ready to move out of my apartment into a house that sits on a little over an acre and I am soooo excited that I can finally start growing some of my own veggies. The problem is.......I have never planted anything except for flowers. I was wanting some info on what's the best veggies to grow when you're just starting out, info on the care, etc. Any help is GREATLY appreciated.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks,<br><br>

That's too bad that you can't grow <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> Hopefully we'll learn some about growing. I can't wait to start as soon as I get moved!

runner beans are not really demanding and therefore easy to grow.<br><br><br><br>
"Runner beans, that is eaten in its long green pods. The beans used to have a fibrous string down the center of the pod; this characteristic has been bred out of the species. But they are still called string beans. "<br><br><br><br>
And look like this <a href="http://www.gezondheidsnet.nl/upload/channels/sperziebonen.jpg" target="_blank">http://www.gezondheidsnet.nl/upload/...erziebonen.jpg</a><br><br><br><br>
Pumpkins are also rewarding, just like zuchini's

Lettuce is easy to grow too. An herb garden is another possibility for getting your feet wet with minimal investment.<br><br><br><br>
Would you consider to buy or get some books from the library? I can post a few books that I liked.

No-Brainers (hard to kill - easy to maintain)<br><br><br><br>
Swiss Chard (great greens spring through fall)<br><br><br><br>
Radishes (sping or fall) - you can eat the greens too!<br><br><br><br>
Cucumbers (grow them on a fence or find another way to keep them off the ground and they tend to stay disease free)<br><br><br><br>
Chile Peppers (I find these grow like weeds - haven't had as much luck the sweet bell peppers - but jalapenos, sweet banana, anaheim, and that type are easy to grow)
