I recently rented a plot of land at the urban garden at Clifton Park. It's part of the Baltimore City Farms project, to get people to start growing their own food. I haven't planted anything in years, not since I lived in SoCal (what about that earthquake, huh?) and had a little yard I grew things in. So I am going to start small, first by setting up the plot (in the process now) and then planting in it. A friend who has been growing stuff there for years recommended Mel Bartholomew's Square Foot Gardening, now in a new edition! I'm finding it helpful.
I've started some seeds inside, and I'm trying to figure out exactly where to leave them in my apartment. For now I've put the seed starters in my kitchen window. I am growing Romas, chili peppers, bell peppers and catnip indoors. Will try plant carrots, lettuce and onions outdoors.
