Hey guys- I'm looking for a lot of suggestions here- it might be quite the challenge, given the size and needs of what I'm planting, but I'm hoping it's an enjoyable challenge for all of you. My family's garden has not been used/planted/dug up/cared for, ignoring about a day (like- 24 hours) worth of effort on my part, clearing out 3 foot tall grasses and what I term 'the weeds of doom'. They're pictured, if anybody could identify them and tell me what sort of damage they could do to plants- the tulips have survived them okay, but I'm hesitant to plant anything in the beds they've infested. The soil in the garden seems to be great- there are worms as far down as 3 feet into the garden, in huge quantities- it breaks apart really easily, it's soft, and moist, but not wet, so I think I'm good there. I have plenty of compost that has been decomposing for years upon years now to use. The biggest problem in this garden is that it gets an awful lot of shade. A couple of trees have grown quite large and shade the garden (excluding the section outside the fence- pictured) through much of the summer and fall, until their leaves drop. I've posted pictures of them too, in case anybody has any suggestions on how to cope with them. I know these beds aren't prepared- I was hoping to get advice before I went through the work of digging them up and removing the plants- although the raspberries are going to stay. Any advice you could give me on digging them up and preparing them is also greatly appreciated. I'm hoping to plant things that are edible, as much as possible. Fruits and veggies, legumes, berries- all that good stuff. But I know most vegetables like a lot of sun, so I'm flexible. I'm also a super beginner at this, so if you could suggest things that are easily maintained, all the better. Enough ranting- on to the pictures! These pictures were taken at 4:50pm, April 23rd. EDIT: Something important I forgot to mention... I live in Vancouver, Canada!
