My first garden
I am finally ready to start my first garden! I have a border space, 2'x40' long all set with sprinklers. I live in the sf Bay Area, east of sf where it is dry and hot in the summer.
I have so many questions!
1. I'm planning to buy compost from my local nursery to work into the top few inches of soil. Should I wait any period of time to sow seeds?
2. I've decided to do a lettuce mix, kale, Swiss chard, basil, thyme and maybe sugar snap peas. I have read that the lettuce, kale, and chard can be put into the ground. How do I do this? Put 1 seed every 12" or so? Or plant them closer together?
3. Any other "easy" winter veggies I should consider?
