Gardening rambling

Well, we've laid out an area that is about 12x15 feet for our garden. We've had tomatoes, broccoli, lettuce, potato, and jalapeno's growing for a while (with some casualties) but we decided a bigger area was needed. So we have our new area with some new tomatoes and eggplant as well as some potato, carrots, onion, cantaloupe and cilantro seeds. Eek. Sometimes it feels crappy being so new to this because I can't troubleshoot very quickly or easily($) so I'm left to my books and online resources which is probably cheaper than buying book after book. I mean,I feel like I need 20 different books/people to say the same thing before I try it. I guess I'm going to have to let that go. This is a learning experience for me but sometimes I find that I'm way too impatient to figure out what works and what doesn't.

So I guess honing my gardening skills would teach me some life lessons as well. That's cool.
