We have a large backyard in our soeuhtrn Illinois home, and I’m very interested in planting an ORGANIC vegetable garden. To say I don’t have a green thumb is a huge understatement. I’ll probably start off small, but I’d like to eventually have the following: Red PotatoesOnionsLettuceCabbageTomatoesGreen PeppersCeleryStrawberriesGrape VinesApple TreesBroccoliCucumbersGreen BeansPeasPumpkinsCornThese are the fruits and vegetables that my family consumes constantly and our grocery bill is OUTRAGEOUS. Plus I’m trying to become more responsible concerning chemicals, pesticides so I’d like to do this as naturally as possible. We don’t have many organic products to choose from in the stores around here, so I figure if I want to do this I’ll have to grow my own.I don’t know the first thing about gardening let alone organic gardening so I’m feeling overwhelemed and don’t really know where to begin. Do you have some good advice or online resources that will help me get started? Also, any advice or resources on canning vegetables for the winter would also be appreciated. THANKS!!!!!!
