Hello, I'm new to this forum (and LOVE it), new to gardening, and just moved into a house with a large neglected veggie garden. The garden plot itself is approx. 20 feet by 20, the soil seems to be in pretty good shape and I am in the process of getting things ready for my first attempt at growing vegetables. I have started tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers and lettuce inside and would also like to plant peas and beans directly outside. I would like to use landscape fabric to keep the weeds to a minimum....my questions are; 1. Can I bury the fabric under the soil..if so how far down is good? If not what would you suggest? 2. Should I till in some kind of compost or other nutrient into the soil before I plant? 3. Is there any sort of "plan" I should be following for the actual planting of the veggies. Do certain things need to be next to each other? How far apart should each plant be? 4. For Southern Ontario when is a resonable time to be "hardening off" seedlings? Any advice / info on "getting started" would be much appreciated!! Sorry for the long post.
