    I am so excited too. I just received the jiffy starter seed kit.
    I have a quick question too: do tomatoes require a lot of space?what about peas?

    Tomatoes aren't going to spread out as other veggies [greens, squash, cucumbers]. The folks at the garden center can help you decide which [and how many] veggies to plant. Peas, I know nuffin about...but once I tried growing black eyed peas!

    In your earlier post, you'd mentioned how to deal with pests w/out pesticides...cucumbers and squash are prone to a wilting disease carried by the cabbage and cucumber beetles...those dag gone things are hard to control, but it can be done.

    5' by 2'? Hmmm...how many plants do you envision of each?

    So much to think about. Now I'm scurrred!

    I'm not sure how many of each. It's just my son and I to feed.

    Does one plant produce more than one veggie? When I cut the veggie off does another one grow?

    Maybe I'll just stick to flowers...

    ^ Don't be scurred, twix!

    You'll be surprised how much you can get in just a small space...you'll find out fo' sho' when you get squash and cucumbers!!! And yes, one plant can produce plenty o' veggies.

    Talk to the garden folk. They can help guide you. Look at pics of the vegetables you want to grow to guide your decision as to how much to plant.

    Take a pic of your area...'cause we want to see what you're workin' with! I'm sure the others will chime in!!

    ^^Thanks again.

    I checked to see if you were in the chat room so we didn't have to keep posting.

    I definitely will take a pic of my area as it looks now (don't laugh). It needs to be cleaned off.

    I'll ask for advice on my next trip to Home Depot.

    ^ I think I just missed you, Twix. I gave the folks in the other garden thread the heads up...your requests for help. I know they will chime in soon.

    Hi Twix! The way I kept bugs off my plants is to crush garlic and use it in a spray bottle with water on my plants. It worked really well last year.

    You can do it twix! OHR gave some great advice.

    Here is something I found regarding Organic pest control

    I've used the garlic like Choco suggested, insecticidal soap and Bacillus Thuringiensis. Here are a couple of simple recipes for organic pest control. Good luck and post pics when you can.
